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.

Gazing globes- Here's another unique idea that's been around a while but is really making a comeback since the Victorian period when they were so popular. There are many different colors and sizes of gazing globes. Some come with their own unique stands to hold them. Most modern versions are around 10 to 12 inches in diameter but there are globes as large as 20 inches or those that are smaller than 10. The color and size depend on the unique look you are going for.
