Decorating your Backyard Haven

Every garden owner wants to add his or her own special touch, a way of showing a little bit of personality to their special outdoor haven. One of the things so great about growing a garden is that you can do whatever you like, making the garden yours and a place that reflects your lifestyle and personal choices. When it comes to decorating a garden, you will find that you have thousands of options and that anything you choose can make a statement about your originality.

Some gardens are simple flowerbeds with beautiful blooming plants while other gardens have very specific themes such as a water garden, cactus garden, butterfly garden, and so on. No matter what type of garden you have, you will have a great time choosing things to enhance it and bring it to life. One way to decorate any garden is by using pottery made from terra cotta. With this type of pottery, you can actually plant directly inside the pot or use it as individual pieces of art as in this terra cotta birdbath. With wonderful styles, colors, and designs, terra cotta creates a warm and inviting look. Another huge benefit to incorporating terra cotta into your garden is that it is crafted to withstand extreme cold and heat, meaning that it will provide you years of use without falling apart.

Another excellent way to enhance your garden is by using steppingstones. Although steppingstones have been popular for many, many years, within the past five to ten years, people have really grown to love the small accent they provide. You can purchase steppingstones that light up using solar power and many that provide specific designs.

Garden benches are also an excellent way to decorate a garden while creating an oasis where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful plants and flowers around you. Some benches are made from wood, resembling the type of old-fashioned bench you might find at the local park while other benches are made from granite or  stone. The type of bench you choose will depend on the size of your garden as well as the style. For instance, if you have a colorful garden that is a bit on the whimsical side, you could choose a bench with sun catchers built into the design. However, if your garden were romantic and filled with fragrant flowers, an arbor with a bench would be the ideal choice.

A type of decoration that you will find in gardens across the country is the garden gazing ball. These balls come in all sizes ranging from very small and affixed to wrought iron rods or extremely large, about the size of a basketball or larger that sits upon a pedestal. The garden ball also comes in a variety of colors. You could choose from a clear or iridescent ball to one that is bright purple with white or silver swirls. Again, depending on the style of your garden you will choose the type of ball that best enhances the décor. 

Just keep in mind that you want your garden decorations to embellish your garden, not overpower the natural beauty of the plants and flowers. The decorations should add to the beauty of the garden, creating wonderful place where you can relax. Our Our selection of garden statuary includes garden decorative statues in resin or brass.  Regardless of the type of decoration you choose, remember that it does not have to be expensive. With a little bit of ingenuity and time shopping around, you will soon have an amazing garden, making you the envy of all your friends and family.
