You could even take things a step further and match the decking material you choose with the flooring of the patio space. For instance, maybe you are fond of mahogany colored wood. You can check with some of the local companies and request that your deck post covers along with the flooring be made with that particular material or with something that resembles it.
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.
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.
Topiaries--trailing plants grown on wire forms--make eye-catching backyard decor for both formal and casual landscapes. For an up-scale look, use several to accent the backyard's entrance or arrange them in uniform rows. Create your own backyard museum piece by standing a topiary on a pedestal. If your landscape has a more laid-back look, just let the topiaries grow a little more freely and put them anywhere they fit in. In any garden, topiaries also make attractive "fixtures" for landscape lighting. Sophisticated as they look, small topiaries costs very little to make. All you need to create one is a pot, a windng plant like ivy geranium or English ivy, and a frame such as an upturned tomato cage.
