Garden decor

For many of us, our gardens and yards are an extension of our living spaces, so when you think of home decor, don't forget about decorating your garden, too! Here are some gardening decor tips to consider.

Garden Patio


When we decorate our homes, we look at the whole picture. We evaluate each space for its walls, furniture, floors, accent pieces and how all the elements work together in the design. Garden decor should be no different! Look at the whole yard and how all the garden decor elements work together to create a well balanced and eye-pleasing outdoor environment with a welcoming ambience.

Plan it out

Whether you have a sprawling five acres or a small patio garden, it's not the size that matters, but what you do with it. Yes, we've heard this before, and it makes lots of sense in garden decor, too! It's all about planning it out.

When planning garden decor, consider the contour of the land and what you want each area of the garden or yard to accomplish: shade, barrier, play, lounging, etc. Think of your garden space as a blank canvas, and your paints will consist of all the garden decor elements, both live and accent, that you'll include.
