Unique Garden Decor
Unique garden decor makes your garden different and creates focal points. Garden and lawn ornaments are the finishing touch to a good garden design.
Carefully chosen decorative garden ornaments accentuate garden areas, patios or lawns and add an extra dimension to a garden area. They are like paintings on the walls of a nice house.
Seasonal garden decorations like outdoor Halloween decor can spice up your garden for a while.
Garden decorations can also be used to distract the focus from unflattering situations because they draw the eye away from not so nice sights.
Whether it is a small animal ornament, a garden statue or a fountain bird bath it has to be selected with the garden design and style in mind.
Lawn and garden ornaments have to suit and blend in with the style of the surrounding garden and house. An Italian style garden statue will look out of place in a contemporary style garden.
A sculpture or water feature can for example be placed at the end of a garden path. This creates a great focal point and raw the visitor to this point.
Sundials, statues or bird baths are great objects for crossing pathways or open spaces. They also have a very charming effect if they are surrounded or partly hidden by plants.
Strategically placed garden benches can look very decorative and invite the visitor to sit down and enjoy the beauty of the garden. They should be placed in areas with a good view of a garden area or the surroundings.
Badly selected lawn ornaments like old wheelbarrow, chimney pots or old tires and buckets don't necessarily enhance the look of a garden, in fact the garden might look better without them!
Choose your lawn and garden decorations carefully. It pays to put some thought into designs, colors and materials. And remember: sometimes less is more!
