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.
Finally, place your feeders in a spot that other animals, like squirrels and raccoons, can't get to. Place the feeders on tall shepherd's hooks or posts with baffles on them so the animals can't climb up to the feeders.
You can be creative in your backyard decorative ideas. Birdhouses are nice and so are garden gnomes, flower gardens and backyard swings. But if you really want to mix it up a bit, here are some ideas you may enjoy:
One of the things that will set a home apart is the choice made when selecting outdoor furniture. Regardless of the landscaping and other attractive features that may be in the outdoor space, old or unsightly furniture will spoil the overall effect. Some homes have beautiful patios made of brick or other materials, but it is the furniture that will present viewers, as well as the homeowner, with a completed and attractive area for relaxing or enjoying a visit with friends.
The last category is light. Solar powered lights easily stick into the ground and create an enchanting ambiance as darkness falls and also do not require batteries. Lights that are triggered by a motion sensor will light up when someone walks past, providing additional safety and security as well as convenience when arriving home at night.
These coverings can also be used to match other features in the yard such as the swimming pool. Now, this may seem like an odd idea, but with a little paint almost anything is possible, color wise. If you would like to incorporate a light blue color into your decking area all you have to do is have the post coverings painted by the company you purchase them from. This goes for just about any other color you may desire. Depending on which color you choose, some companies may even have them already created. This may be especially true for colors such as black and white.
