The accessories and lighting you use to decorate your backyard living space will set the mood and atmosphere for this part of your home, just like inside. Citronella candles are great bug repellents and add a subtle glow to your backyard retreat. Colorful accents, like pillows, placemats, and bright chair cushions, can make your outdoor areas very inviting. Consider festive vases full of your favorite flowers for table décor and hang wind chimes for a melodic atmosphere.
or the last few years my wife and I have enjoyed spending our free time in our backyard, we have a deck, a patio, and an in-ground pool, it's wonderful! Yet the rest of our yard just seemed to be kind of dull. We planted flowers and flowering bushes, which brought our yard some color, but they only gave the yard that pizazz we were looking for for a short period time, we were missing something.
The last category is light. Solar powered lights easily stick into the ground and create an enchanting ambiance as darkness falls and also do not require batteries. Lights that are triggered by a motion sensor will light up when someone walks past, providing additional safety and security as well as convenience when arriving home at night.
Some people embrace utilizing objects in their decorating. Stepping stones scattered throughout the lawn or garden accent well with the natural surroundings. Some people like stones that replicate paw prints, while others are stamped or carved with an inspirational quote. Garden gnomes placed strategically throughout the yard will delight and surprise visitors at every turn.
Fountains and Waterfalls- Fountains and waterfalls are another way to add a creative touch to your backyard. There are many which can be purchased and set up easily without requiring any actually holes in your lawn. There are even small versions that can be placed on tops of tables or stands in the backyard and those designed to work in flower beds.
You could even take things a step further and match the decking material you choose with the flooring of the patio space. For instance, maybe you are fond of mahogany colored wood. You can check with some of the local companies and request that your deck post covers along with the flooring be made with that particular material or with something that resembles it.
