Decor items such as angels, a small waterfall, water bell chimes, gentle tone wind chimes, moon flowers, and subtle lighting can be combined to create a tranquil, meditative back yard atmosphere. A statue of an angel adds reverence to a garden area. Stepping stones with inspiring quotes are an ideal accessory for a tranquil garden design. The peaceful burbling of a small waterfall calms the environment. Wind chimes with their gentle tinkling in the breeze can really create a space ideal for meditation and relaxation.
Also, numerous options help you work with the space you have to work with. Adding a nice fire pit or smaller firepots add ambiance and warmth to an outdoor area. If the outdoor area is quite small, decors may be limited to a small bench, solar lights, and small flower or herb garden for beauty and aroma. If your backyard is quite large, you can transform a section of that space into a dining or barbeque area. Any size outdoor area can be transformed into a tranquil retreat. Folding chairs and tables are a great option for really small areas. Multi-purpose furniture such as storage benches is really helpful because they provide a place for storing some of your decor when they are not in use or out of season or if you have a small space and they can't be out all of the time.
Another category is items that are both attractive and practical. Large clocks, decorative thermometers, and rain gauges can add beauty and function to an outdoor garden area. One can have fun seeing how much it rained during the day or what the temperature is outside.
The most common yard accessories cater to birds and include the bird feeder, bird house and bird bath. The reason they are so popular is because they attract birds to the yard and give them an incentive to stay a while. Most people enjoy listening to the birds sing and fly around. They are very beautiful creatures. They are nature's real live backyard decoration with their bright colors, lively personalities, and beautiful songs. Also, the bird accessories are very various with many purposes and can be tucked into the branches of an overgrown tree, suspended from a porch awning or placed in the middle of the yard.
The next category is large objects that make a statement in your garden. Fountains are stunning to look at and the burbling water is a soothing influence to any space. Wire or metal sculptures can be artistic and abstract and show off your good taste and concrete statues are classic and awe inspiring and are also impressive additions to a backyard garden.
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.
