Of course, there needs to be some type of seating in the garden. Once such a beautiful garden space has been created, it should be enjoyed. A pathway lined with solar lights could be designed to lead directly to a bench, an outdoor swing, or a couple of chairs arrangement near or in the center of the garden. A solar spotlight could be used to illuminate a uniquely shaped plant or shrub at night.
Sundials- While they've been around for a long time, many people have forgotten the beauty and creativity of having one at their home.

The next popular category of lawn décor is water features. Wishing wells and fountains, are backyard decorations that appeal to people of all ages. A large wishing well with a functioning bucket will spark the imagination, and prove to be fun with children. If a more relaxing mood is your goal, the sound of gently cascading water will create a calming environment.
Let's say you choose gray cobblestone deck post covers. You can also get a gray cobblestone pathway or walkway installed in your backyard that is similar or identical to the material and colors used for the decking. This will help to create a sort of flow or cohesiveness in the space. The same thing can also be said if you were to choose brick material. Brick walkways are also quite popular.
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.
You may prefer a private backyard retreat for just yourself and your spouse. This could be designed in a small, secluded area of your backyard, near the beauty and tranquility of your garden, or surrounding a relaxing hot tub. The furnishings in your personal backyard retreat can range from a comfortable garden bench, a hammock, or a rejuvenated love seat from indoors.
