so many fabulous garden décor options how do you know where
to begin? The best place to start is by browsing magazines. There
are so many great magazines today with beautiful photos to show you
just how great your garden can look with the right décor. If
that’s still not enough then take a look at your friends and
neighbor’s yards. This will help you know what you like and
don’t like before you begin.
Decide if you want practical items that serve a purpose or ones that
simply serve as an aesthetically pleasing addition or a combination
of both. For example, items like benches, fountains, ponds, waterfalls,
spitters, or bird baths are both good-looking and serve a purpose for
your garden. Every garden needs a bench. This allows you to actually
sit and enjoy the garden that you’ve worked so hard on. And if
you have additional garden décor, like a fountain or a bird bath,
you can also enjoy the tranquility of running water and the sweet chirping
of the birds while you sit back and relax.
Items that serve no real purpose but are more for aesthetics include
statues, plaques and fake rocks. These all add to the beauty of a
garden. Garden statues will bring you back to the days of ancient
Rome and Greece where exquisite stone statues graced gardens. A plaque
with a favorite saying looks nice when laid with a stone pathway or
placed in between flowers or plants. Fake rocks are an easy way to
add items that may be naturally lacking from your backyard. And no
one will ever be able to tell the difference.
Do you want to enjoy your garden after the sun has gone down? Try
adding some quaint garden lighting. Accentuate parts of the garden
that you are particularly proud of or use lighting to illuminate a
pathway. Garden lighting is also great for if you’re having
a backyard dinner party. Don’t forget you can add lighting to
fountains, ponds or waterfalls which makes for a lovely romantic backyard
Plants and flowers are beautiful but also accentuate and bring your
garden to life with garden décor. It will instantly transform
your garden into a backyard utopia.
