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.
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.
Backyard decorations can make the exterior space of a home as attractive as the indoor area. They are an ideal form of self-expression.
Your backyard should be a place of fun and relaxation for you and those you love. Backyard retreats can be as simple or as extravagant as your tastes desire. Careful planning and a few inexpensive furnishings can transform your backyard into a peaceful outdoor haven or a bright and exciting island vacation!
Birdhouses and garden gnomes are fine if you don't mind having the same garden decor everyone else has. If you're looking for a way to express your unique personal style, though, don't just settle for the ideas you get from your local home and garden store. Take home a few of these less common decor pieces and make your backyard truly your own.
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.
