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.
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.
Your backyard should be a place of fun and relaxation for you and those you love. Backyard retreats can be as simple or as extravagant as your tastes desire. Careful planning and a few inexpensive furnishings can transform your backyard into a peaceful outdoor haven or a bright and exciting island vacation!
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.
Birdhouses and garden gnomes are fine if you don't mind having the same garden decor everyone else has. If you're looking for a way to express your unique personal style, though, don't just settle for the ideas you get from your local home and garden store. Take home a few of these less common decor pieces and make your backyard truly your own.
Bird baths are another great way to bring birds into your backyard. Birds enjoy fresh water and keeping themselves clean and a bird bath will draw a good number of birds in as well, be sure to keep the bath clean and the water fresh.
