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.
Backyard decorations can make the exterior space of a home as attractive as the indoor area. They are an ideal form of self-expression.
The first category is container gardening is a very popular hobby. It is planting flowers or interesting plants in stylish containers instead of in the ground in the garden. These containers can be displayed anywhere in the space instead of having to be in the flower garden. The containers can actually become a major part of the garden design. There are numerous sizes, styles, colors, and prices for decorative outdoor containers. Wooden planters create a rustic look. Wrought iron planters help with a more elegant space. Terra cotta planters and ceramic pots give a more traditional feel and these are just a few of the many container options. Sculptures that are designed to hold several flower pots add a whimsical affect to the garden. A sculpture shaped like a bicycle, a wagon, or a chair that holds a flower pot in its seat are just a few fun choices.
Another popular category of lawn ornaments is anything that moves as the wind blows. Miniature windmills that sit on the ground can also double as a bird house or a planter. Wind chimes hooked onto a tree branch will provide delicate sounds that many people find soothing. In recent years, flags have become quite popular with a seemingly endless array of flag choices. One can be patriotic year round or have a different flag for every holiday.
Sundials- While they've been around for a long time, many people have forgotten the beauty and creativity of having one at their home. They will create a beautiful and interesting look in your backyard and also make a great conversation starter. There are many different styles to choose from, including handmade sundials.
A backyard can be transformed into a vacation-like resort with the proper selection of decorations. It is easy to create a relaxing atmosphere similar to a day at the beach or lake. Adding outdoor furniture to the yard or patio is an excellent place to begin a transformation. After finding the ideal furniture, the accessories complete the transformation. Solar lights and yard art such as gazing balls and metal sculptures can be added. Walkways can be created using pebbles, stepping stones or various other materials. Bird houses, bird feeders, water gardens, and wind chimes help create a more nature oriented outdoor escape. Creating an outdoor dining area or picnic area increases the opportunity for entertaining family and friends in the backyard.
