Outdoor Decor - create an Outdoor Living Space unique to you


Outdoor decor that is unique to our needs and tastes is perhaps one of the fastest growing trends in the gardening industry. The desire to create a garden or outdoor space for entertaining with outdoor decor that speaks to you cannot be underestimated.

The recent softening of the real estate market, lowered home values, higher gas prices and people putting down deeper roots rather than moving, have lead us to make our outdoor spaces into outdoor living rooms. Creating a personalized outdoor space decorated with outdoor decor that provides additional entertaining, relaxing or dining options is a desire of many of us.

Bird Houses and Garden Art
Enhancing our outdoor spaces with garden art and outdoor decor can be as simple or complex as we would like.

For those interested in bringing wildlife to their backyards, it might include adding a small grouping of bird feeders to attract a variety of birds to the yard. Just for their charm, beauty and insect eating capabilities alone, this is a wonderful way of enhancing enjoyment in your yard.

Over the past few years hand crafted garden sculpture has increased in popularity. More and more artists are creating garden art such as hand blown glass pond balls, hummingbird feeders, butterfly feeders, bird finials, welcome signs, butterfly garden stakes, dragonfly garden stakes, egret and heron garden stakes, copper and tin mushroom art. Garden art serves a delightful purpose.

When we place something unique, sculptural or handcrafted in our garden we add whimsy and a resting place for our eyes. In addition, garden art used in our gardens is an opportunity to break away from tradition and the more sedate confines of our homes and become more playful. Garden decor acts as a comma or semi-colon between the stands of flowers and greenery in our gardens and landscape and adds a light note.


Garden Arches, Garden Trellises and Pergolas
Using garden arches and garden trellises in your garden decor will not only increase drama and elevate a plain-Jane area to something quite spectacular and unique, but will also aid with conservation by shading your AC unit or a wall hit particularly hard by the late afternoon sun.

A garden arch or pergola makes a great transition point or portal to a flower or vegetable garden, a pond, or it might simply offer a transition between two areas of your yard. Left unadorned it becomes sculptural garden art. Adorned with climbing roses, wisteria, or morning glories and it becomes a unique, personal statement in your yard.

Wall trellises placed against a vacant space, such as the back of a garage or out-building, will add instant beauty and help to cool the indoor spaces they adorn. Imagine a lovely arched wall trellis with an espaliered fruit tree or blooming clematis. This simple structure not only creates a visual impact in your yard, but can also provide organic fruits! A garden gazebo planted with roses in a sun-drenched area of your yard will bring a cool calming effect to an otherwise parched area, and offer a relaxing respite from the hot afternoon sun.
Planters and Containers as Garden decor
One of the easiest and most versatile ways for any gardener to create unique garden spaces with outdoor decor is through the use of garden planters. Container gardening offers endless possibilities. Whether you are grouping containers to hide an eyesore or bringing your vegetable garden onto the patio, or are plagued with poor soil or tree roots where you would place your garden, planters can be the answer.
Planters come in wide array of materials from lightweight planters that can be moved to different places in the landscape, or to follow the moving sun on a patio or deck, to stone planters and manufactured stone that evoke a sense of permanence and distinction.
For anyone wanting to try a water feature, using stone or cast stone planters can be the perfect choice. Or for a more light-weight option, resin planters are easily adaptable to small spaces, deck and patios; and requires very little in materials and cost. Plus, it is rather portable and can be moved, if desired. Though small in size this type of garden decor packs a big impact with both sound and visual appeal.

Fountains & Bird Baths
Water gardens transform an outdoor living space into a place to relax, unwind, and enjoy quality time with family and friends. Water features become the focal point of any garden with their melodious tunes and natural ability to attract a variety of birds and butterflies. Whether you tuck a decorative fountain near the entrance of your home or create a backyard habitat with an ecosystem pond and waterfall, you’ll find each day enhanced when you waterscape your landscape. Whether you have an expansive lawn or a small balcony, you can find a water feature to suit your lifestyle and budget.
