Lawn Decor /Have you wanted to change your backyard disaster into a beautiful Oasis By: Glenn Mast
Backyard decorations can turn unused, boring, or unattractive space into an area of beauty, tranquility, fun, and more. One of the best ways to beautify a backyard is with colorful flowers and interesting plants. There are decorative items that make it easy to create an impressive flower or herb garden in the backyard. Choosing a theme or style of design is the starting point for creating an impressive and unique backyard.
One theme is container gardening which is a very popular hobby. It is planting flowers or interesting plants in unique 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. 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.
To create a nature themed backyard, items such as bird baths, bird feeders, and a small vegetable, flower, or herb garden help set the tone for a naturalistic back yard retreat. Wind Chimes, a fire pit, and rustic furniture give a back yard a mountain retreat type atmosphere. Gnomes, woodland creature statues, and rustic solar lights all enhance the nature theme.
A classical and elegant look includes figurines and statues. They can be placed in various locations throughout the yard. They can be semi-hidden among the flowers and plants or placed under a tree in the yard. Solar lights create a romantic ambience. Stepping stones and gazing balls add color to a backyard.
Also, container gardening can enhance this theme. Planting flowers and placing them around your space, is not only aesthetically pleasing, but the aroma is relaxing and inviting too and can even be a little romantic as well.
And additional theme is large objects that make a statement in your garden. Fountains are stunning to look at and the burbling water is a soothing influence to any space. Wire or metal sculptures can be artistic and abstract and show off your good taste and concrete statues are classic and awe inspiring..
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.
Another cool theme many choose is to make the yard look like a day at the beach or give it a tropical island feel. This can be accomplished with bamboo torches, tiki items, canvas chairs, colorful lights, shells, sand, garland, and festive tables.
Backyard decorations can make the exterior space of a home as attractive as the indoor area. They are an ideal form of self-expression.
