Garden Décor Made Easy
One of the most exciting aspects of the increasingly warm days of spring is when we finally get out in our gardens to work the ground. While many gardeners simply plant for the sake of enhancing the natural beauty of the property, others plant gardens in which they can grow fruits and vegetables. Some gardeners plant a mix of both decorative plants and edible plants side by side. If you have a garden in which you would like to sit and enjoy the best that nature has to offer, here are some easy garden décor tips.
Combination Water Fountain and Bird Bath
While the trickling of the water fountain makes for a peaceful environment in your garden, there are other benefits as well. Yes, the sound of running water is quite relaxing, which is why so many gardeners add one to their garden décor, but they also draw in a wide variety of birds who come to bathe and drink the crystal-clear water. The birds are lovely to watch but they also help fertilize your plants by carrying pollen from plant to plant in their bills.
A Touch of Spirituality
People from all faiths see their garden as a place for prayerful reflection. This is why they will add bits of outdoor garden décor to help them center and focus on their prayers and meditations. Some of the spiritual décor is meant to keep their home and garden free from the evils of the world as well. For example, Native American dream catchers are said to be able to capture and contain the evils that infiltrate our dreams, causing nightmares. Catholics like statues of the Virgin Mother or of their patron saint. If you have a friend or family member who has a birthday coming up, why not check out Catholic gift ideas such as those garden statues they are lacking?
LED Ambient Garden Lighting
There was a time when ambient lighting in the garden was a bit difficult to install. It required digging a pathway to the house so that electric wires could be hidden. In today’s hi-tech world with environmentally conscious families, solar powered lights make it possible to add ambient lighting so that you can enjoy your garden day or night. Choose from a variety of colors so that you get a rainbow effect for ultimate beauty with these amazingly energy efficient lights for outdoor use.
A Walkway of Garden Pavers
Although garden pavers enable you to walk safely through your garden so that you don’t slip and fall in the moist soil, they can also add a touch of elegance as well. There are some amazingly artistic garden pavers that are crafted with patterns set in colorful tiny stones. Whether adding pavers to your garden as an item of décor or simply for function, they can be one of the easiest ways to tweak the garden’s natural beauty.
There are really so many ways to add a touch of garden décor that you may have just as much fun designing your garden as you do planting those lovely plants. It’s almost summer, after all, so let’s get out there and have a bit of fun in the sun.
