Tables: Square or Rectangle

Still life, pot collection, flagstone terrace in dirt, groundcovers, vines, conifers, meadow, high & low density for maximum pollinator habitat, contrasting textures & colors(foliage), color of window trim, timelessness, Vanishing Threshold, rectangular table, & which continent is this..... (Did you really know so much was in this gorgeous pic?)Puppet Barbuda cannot abide round tables for terrace/patio/deck.
Puppet Barbuda loves square or rectangular tables; they are so flexible. Pushed next to your home, a rail, edge of terrace, behind a bench.
Puppet Barbuda loves the flexibility of 2 square tables; used separately or pushed together.
Imagine the pic, above, with a round table. Ick.

Tara Question: Pic of your patio/deck should answer, "Is this so wonderful I must see the garden & is this so wonderful I must go inside & see the interiors?"
Pic from Dana Gallagher. Puppet Barbuda knows there are exceptions to her round-table-disdain.

I have to agree with P. Barbuda on rectilinear tables, in most cases.

Circular forms are best only for direction changes, esp on ground plane...and curvy courtyard walls are often WEAK.

Great question Tara! That's something I will have to think about once we get started on a garden. Right now I think mose people would run if they were judging our interior by the outside!!! Enjoy your day.
