The Outdoor Entertaining Season is Here!

    Get ready for this year’s outdoor entertaining season with these tips provided by Hedberg Supply to get your backyard into gear when it come to this year’s Grilling Season. 

    Now that summer has officially arrived, once again, we are using our outdoor living spaces to gather with family & friends. Whether you’re relaxing near a bubbling rock fountain, sipping wine or a cold beer, snuggling up to a fire boulder, mastering the art of cooking on your grill island or pizza oven, your outdoor environment can add or detract from your experience. New trends in garden design you should be aware of that enhance your experience include the mixture of elements, combining stone, wood and steel to create a great backdrop to a full seasonal array of plant materials.

    This season, gabions are in! Architectural wired baskets filled with decorative rock that can offer buffering and garden art. Reclaimed wood is an easy and stunning way to provide privacy and add texture. Fire & water add interest, creates a gathering spot and can help drown out city noise.

    Hedberg Supply believes “It’s not about the rock or the blocks, but the enhancement to your outdoor living lifestyle. By the design of comfortable, functional outdoor living spaces, that gets us excited!”

    Since summer goes by so quickly, it is time to get outside, dream, build and make memories in your innovative outdoor living environment. Now that the scene is set, let’s talk about grilling and drinking. The perfect place to kick-off the grilling season is at Minnesota Monthly’s 4th annual GrillFest, taking place May 16 & 17 at CHS Field, the new home of the St. Paul Saints. Test out new grills, gadgets and smokers for your patio, sample a variety of sauces and rubs and gather new recipes for Minnesota’s outdoor entertaining season. This two-day outdoor festival provides you with the chance to sample your favorite grilled foods and taste summer wines and specialty craft/seasonal beers.
