There are many different types of Teak outdoor furniture that come in a variety of colors and styles. The outdoor sets are specially treated to withstand the weather and are available in a number of different designs which makes it easy to choose something that will fit in beautifully with one's décor and personal taste. This applies to whether the furniture is placed on a patio or in other backyard areas.
First, consider the outdoor needs of you and your family. If you have children, designate a play area in an open area of your backyard. Use colorful containers or a large plastic bin to store outdoor toys and design a relaxing sitting and conversation area within eyesight for easy supervision. Your sitting area may be as simple as a few lounge chairs or a full outdoor living area with weather resistant wicker furniture and colorful throw pillows to brighten the room.
If you are going to enjoy your backyard this season, the best way is to decorate your yard with functional items. The first thing that makes for an enjoyable time outside is a fire pit or chiminea. The addition of a fire pit will add a gathering point and makes for an excellent conversational piece. Just place a few chairs around it you will instantly have a living room experience.
Another way to add a living room feel to your home is the addition of solar lamps. I am not talking about those cheap lights that people have along their driveway. I am referring to lamps that you would be comfortable with displaying in your home.
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.
These glass garden accents were popularized during the Victorian period when 4-inch hanging balls of either gold or blue were used to scare off witches. Miniature gazing globes are designed to hang in the air along a garden path or beside a pond. Today's globes are typically ten to twelve inches, but globes as small as five inches and as large as twenty inches can also be found. Blue and green globes capture light well, but if you want a clear reflection of your backyard, go with silver. Warm colors like red or gold work well near seating or above plants of a similar color. Gazing globes can be placed directly on the lawn or in a flowerbed, but they reflect light better if mounted on a stand. Stands are often works of art in themselves, ranging from classical Greek columns with scrolls and acanthus leaves to whimsical designs with animals, fairies, and other figures.
