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.
Backyard decorations can turn unused, boring, or unattractive space into an area of beauty, tranquility, fun, and more. Choosing a theme or style of design is the starting point for creating an impressive and unique backyard. Below are some ideas of themes you may want to incorporate into your space.
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.
Tiki Torches- Tiki torches and other types of backyard candles or lighting are also increasingly popular yet more unique when it comes to backyard décor. You can use them to surround a patio or decorate around the edging of a pool, a barbecue pit and more.
These glass garden accents were popularized during the Victorian period when 4-inch hanging balls of either gold or blue were used to scare off witches. Miniature gazing globes are designed to hang in the air along a garden path or beside a pond. Today's globes are typically ten to twelve inches, but globes as small as five inches and as large as twenty inches can also be found. Blue and green globes capture light well, but if you want a clear reflection of your backyard, go with silver. Warm colors like red or gold work well near seating or above plants of a similar color. Gazing globes can be placed directly on the lawn or in a flowerbed, but they reflect light better if mounted on a stand. Stands are often works of art in themselves, ranging from classical Greek columns with scrolls and acanthus leaves to whimsical designs with animals, fairies, and other figures.
It is also possible to purchase other types of Teak furniture to complete a beautiful outdoor area. Things such as garden planters, benches, loungers, storage boxes, end tables, and other items are equally attractive and make it possible to add to the backyard design and present a cohesive, elegant look.
