Topiaries--trailing plants grown on wire forms--make eye-catching backyard decor for both formal and casual landscapes. For an up-scale look, use several to accent the backyard's entrance or arrange them in uniform rows. Create your own backyard museum piece by standing a topiary on a pedestal. If your landscape has a more laid-back look, just let the topiaries grow a little more freely and put them anywhere they fit in. In any garden, topiaries also make attractive "fixtures" for landscape lighting. Sophisticated as they look, small topiaries costs very little to make. All you need to create one is a pot, a windng plant like ivy geranium or English ivy, and a frame such as an upturned tomato cage.
ou may already know that your backyard is more than just an extension of your home. For many, it is a sanctuary, a retreat, a private hideaway - it's a place for you to get away, to enjoy barbecues with the family or quiet time with a book. Decorating this space to meet your needs and style makes it all the more enjoyable when you spend time here. But if the ordinary backyard decorations aren't doing it for you, what are some other ideas?
To create a nature themed backyard, items such as bird baths, bird feeders, and a small vegetable, flower, or herb garden help set the tone for a naturalistic back yard retreat. Wind chimes, a fire pit, and rustic furniture give a back yard a mountain retreat type atmosphere. Gnomes, woodland creature statues, and rustic solar lights all enhance the nature theme.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating your backyard. You can beautify for just you as a place to relax and rejuvenate. You can trim your backyard for holiday family get-togethers. You can decorate for big events such as graduation parties or wedding receptions. You can put up the perfect pieces to accent your party.
Backyard decorations are essential for entertaining. There are various options to help you create that memorable party or celebration. Also, there are a lot of options to help you tailor your backyard to perfectly fit the right party. Think about table décor for instance. Table decor can be found that will set the mood for an adult or child's birthday party. There are numerous outdoor decorations for holiday entertaining. Balloons, Chinese lanterns, candles, string lights, streamers, and banners are possible options for party decorations.
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.
