Garden Accessories to Make Your Garden Look Beautiful and Attractive
A well-tended garden is a labor of love. For some, their garden is a sacred space; a sanctuary. For others, their garden is a place to grow fresh ingredients. Whether your garden is spread across acres, in your backyard, or balcony – you can beautify the space with simple and charming accessories.
You can buy decorative items made especially for gardens. But you can also use utility items such as deep root watering devices and lights as accent pieces in your garden.
Here are some ideas for decorative garden accessories.
Sculptures and Figurines –
Depending on the garden size, choose from big marble statues to small ceramic figurines. You can even place small animal figurines across the garden for a quaint look.
For small terrace or balcony gardens, choose mini glass or stone figurines and place them between planters. You can also use a stacked planter for a layered placement of pots and accessories. For backyard gardens, you can place a unique-looking sculpture in any corner as a centerpiece of sort. For a whimsical touch, opt for geometric metal structures.
Hanging sculptures are perfect for big trees. But you can also find small lightweight hanging sculptures for vines or metal stacked planters.
Garden stakes are available in such creative designs that you can literally create a whole new theme for your garden. Spinner stakes with geometric shapes are perfect for adding some dramatic decorative accents in your garden. Stakes made with stained glass can catch the sunlight for a vibrant garden spread. Stakes with a combination of wrought iron and colorful glass shapes can look rich. Ceramic or glass stakes with designs such as butterflies, flowers, birds, and animals are ideal for giving your garden a lively look.
When it comes to stakes, you can even buy designs that are both utility and decorative items. Opt for deep root watering tool in beautiful floral shapes and colorful hues. You can place them in your garden bed or even house planters to water your plants while also beautifying your space. You can also use them to add some color to your herb garden.
Pottery birdhouses are ideal decorative garden accessories for small outdoor or terrace gardens. Satisfy the whimsical in you with teacup-shaped birdhouses or a small hut covered in moss. Create a cozy nook for birds with carefully chosen accessories. Place a few birdhouses on a tree along with one or two charming hummingbird feeders. Place a water feature nearby along with a few floral stakes.
A garden fountain need not be a large structure. You can buy mini to big fountains depending on the garden size. If you don’t like big water features, use small fountains alongside small animal figurines and colorful flowers to create a lovely garden corner. Small fountains can also add a beautiful touch to a terrace or verandah garden.
Lights can act as decorative garden accessories depending on their style and design. Use pathway lighting features to brighten up a garden path. Choose light stakes in the center of floral circles or under the trees. If you have a gazebo in the garden, decorate it with string lights. Invest in solar-powered planters that light up at night.
Wind Chimes –
Use porcelain wind chimes and bells to bring different nature elements together in your garden. The wind can produce lovely sounds in your garden with beautiful chimes and bells placed on trees, stacked planters, and the gazebo.
Planters are again utility items that can add up as decorative pieces for your garden. Add color to your garden with pottery sourced from different regions around the world. Buy big and small planters in bright hues to create a multicolored garden area.
Metal planters in animal or bird shapes can help you create an idyllic garden nook. These are perfect to place by the garden fountains. Think metal planter shaped like an antelope, duck, or a crane by the fountain or the pond. Buy planters in unique shapes and designs to reflect your personal taste. A beaver holding a pot is ideal for outdoor gardens; while you can use turtle-shaped planters for indoor planters.
