With these five simple, affordable decor ideas you can liven up your backyard in a single day. Remember that although you might save a little money buying mass-produced items, you'll get higher quality and more unique backyard decor from professional artisans. One-of-a-kind, handmade garden art not only adds personality to a home's landscape, it can also become a treasured family heirloom.
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.
Rain chains, called "kusari doi" in their native Japan, make beautiful and practical backyard decor. Although rain chains have been used for centuries in Japan to gather water, these days in the west they're used primarily for draining water from the roof. However they're used, rain cascading down these chains makes stormy weather look and sound a little more cheerful. Usually made from copper or stainless steel, the chains may be simple interlinked loops or more fanciful rows of tulip or lily cups. To use a rain chain, just remove your downspout and put the rain chain in its place. To complete the look, place a matching copper rain basin under the chain.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating your backyard. You can beautify for just you as a place to relax and rejuvenate. You can trim your backyard for holiday family get-togethers. You can decorate for big events such as graduation parties or wedding receptions. You can put up the perfect pieces to accent your party.
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.
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.
