Why you shouldn't tell visitors to your garden where to sit
Don't tell your visitors where to sit. If you've designed your garden space correctly, they can't get it wrong. Have chairs and tables. Don't act like an usher in a movie theatre. It's actually kind of cool to see how visitors use the space. I've corrected many of my design mistakes this way, just by watching how people sit in the garden.
Yes, you're excited about being a good host or hostess. But get out of the way. Let the garden speak for itself. If you feel that you need to do something, go back into the house and fix the drinks.
