For this garden we sunk a BBQ grill within a solid slab of stone, but that requires some pretty serious tools and expertise. Luckily, there are simpler ways to do it. A work surface can be constructed with breeze blocks around the outside and a work surface made from exterior ply or another waterproof material such as a plastic worktop or even treated wood, and all of which are much easier materials for you to cut into to make your inset BBQ. You can have a great area for food preparation and cooking in no time.
You could even put a sink in as well! If you visit your local camping or caravan shop you can get a sink that drains and pumps to allow you to wash your hands and utensils while you’re cooking.
If you have an exposed area where winds can be strong then you may want to put screening round the back of the construction. The screen wall we built in this garden looks fancy, Frances used leftover pallet wood to create it, and she got creative by building it with a window frame effect.
Throw in some garden furniture and you have an incredible kitchen and dining area outside.
