Great garden accents

Great gardens made better

Now that your garden is in full bloom and looking fabulous it's time to accessorize it. From planters to sculptures, check out our picks for must-have accents sure to spice up your green space.

1Bicycle planter

Give your green space a playful touch with this wrought iron planter in the shape of a vintage bicycle (Pottery Barn, $249). Showcase up to six of your favorite summer blooms in wire baskets on the handlebars, seat and over the kickstand. Place amid the garden, or let this whimsical piece stand alone.

2Garden sculpture

Brighten up your yard or garden with a bold, red garden sculpture (CB2, $30). The tall geometric design looks great peeking out from leaves and flowers, or you can place it in a pot and get some vines growing up and through it. Three in a row makes a vibrant statement against lush green space.

3Cascading fountain

Add the soothing sound of flowing water to your garden with this statement-making outdoor accent (JC Penney, $250). We love the antique finish, angled design and underwater lighting that adds a soft glow to the cascading water.


If you have the space, a birdbath can add depth and height to a linear garden layout. We love this elegant, hand-cast stone piece (Restoration Hardware, $349) for its modern design and stately look. It may be simple, but this birdbath makes for a dramatic focal point for your yard.
