There are so many ways that someone can make a garden a unique visual experience. We’ve covered such thoughts as flower accessories and tools, and artificial plants, but that’s just scratching the surface of what can be found. There are all sorts of ways to fill your yard with a pastoral touch or a fancy tone.
One common decoration that can be seen in gardens are the Gazing Balls. Decorative spheres with a history dating back to the 13th century, these spheres are a fine ornamental option. Usually mirrored and placed on a stand, they normally are about a foot in diameter. We also carry non mirrored, mosaic and patterned gazing spheres, much like the one pictured to the right. We also carry some unique garden statues that incorporate gazing spheres. Try placing them on a stand or in a garden as a unique, colorful stone, and see what these decorative charms can do for your yard.
For ground decorations, there are also options such as Stepping Stones. These decorative motifs are versatile, coming in so many different shapes and themes, from inspirational messages to welcoming signs to visual imagery. Stepping stones, whether placed in the middle of the yard as part of an actual path or as decorative accents, can cover every topic from religious blessings to jokes to sports team supporting to, if the need is there, bereavement and memorial. The most important thing to consider is how they can be used to give your yard a character more in fitting with yourself.
The beauty of working in the garden is that there is always new ideas for how to make it better, more beautiful and more complete. Let our suggestions be just another step on the way to this, and enjoy the warm weather now that it has finally arrived.
