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.
Next is the addition of stylish outdoor furniture. Don't buy that vinyl cushion covered junk that your grandmother had in the 80's. I am talking about quality wooden furniture that is hand crafted.
So, deck post covers can be extremely beneficial when it comes to enhancing any backyard space. The best thing about them is that they can easily be tied to the other decorative features in the yard.
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.
There are many different types of Teak outdoor furniture that come in a variety of colors and styles. The outdoor sets are specially treated to withstand the weather and are available in a number of different designs which makes it easy to choose something that will fit in beautifully with one's décor and personal taste. This applies to whether the furniture is placed on a patio or in other backyard areas.
First, consider the outdoor needs of you and your family. If you have children, designate a play area in an open area of your backyard. Use colorful containers or a large plastic bin to store outdoor toys and design a relaxing sitting and conversation area within eyesight for easy supervision. Your sitting area may be as simple as a few lounge chairs or a full outdoor living area with weather resistant wicker furniture and colorful throw pillows to brighten the room.
