6 Garden Decor Ideas

Your garden is your little place of relaxation in this hectic world. So of course you’ll want to set it apart from everyone else’s gardens; you’ll want to make it your own, to fit your individual personality and home. Here are six little touches that can greatly add to your garden:

1. Containers – Well-placed and aesthetically pleasing containers or pots will add touches of color and texture to any corner of your garden. The great thing about containers is that if you don’t like the location, move them!

2. Water Features – A water feature can be as simple as a small container filled with water and a few plants, to something complicated like a large pond, with fish, water lilies, bridges, and fountains. It really comes down to how much time and money you’re willing to spend, and how much space you have in your garden. But even a small fountain can greatly enhance your garden.

3. Garden Furniture – There are some great, comfortable, cushioned chairs and couches that are made for the outdoors. A hammock is always a great place to relax as well. There’s a variety of benches also available to accent your garden and provide a great place to sit.

4. Lighting – There are always lots of lighting options available: solar lights, electric lanterns, candles, etc. Solar lamps are perfect for the energy-conscious folk, or candles will create a great atmosphere. You might even want to try a citronella candle or torch to keep the mosquitoes back.

5. Wind Chimes – Wind chimes are made in a variety of styles and materials: copper and other metal, clay, ceramic, etc. They also come in many different shapes and sizes. Find a set of chimes that suites your style and budget. When you’re looking for a spot to place your wind chimes, make sure there will only be a slight breeze there, not a strong wind. You’ll want them to blow gently in the breeze, not clanging together harshly from a powerful wind.

6. Fake Flowers – If you’ve got a spot in your garden where you just can’t seem to grow anything, think about trying a container of silk flowers. They can really brighten up the area and save you a bit of work too!

These are just a few ideas that will greatly enhance your garden and set it apart from everyone else’s, and it really doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money. Just try a few, or create your own. You’ll find more tips at Garden Decor Help.
