Ideas To Decorate Your Backyard Garden
Incorporate your backyard garden as a natural extension of your home by adding elements to it that tie it into your home’s style and architecture. There are some good ideas to decorate your backyard garden. And these are some of them. Embellish a backyard garden for a country home by accenting it with rustic wooden garden benches, antique lanterns and rolling cart planters filled with flowers. If your home is Victorian, divide the yard into separate sections of colored foliage with sculpted shrubs and hedges, iron birdbaths, furniture and fountains, hanging planters and colored gravel pathways coordinated with house colors. A minimalist Asian-inspired garden may feature blooming azaleas, rhododendrons and cherry blossoms, Japanese maple, bamboo and sculpted conifers accented with pagoda lights, stone and pebble water features, arched wooden bridges over small babbling brooks and meditative Buddha statues.
Layers of lush greenery provide aesthetic appeal and in many cases, a sense of privacy to a backyard garden. A wire garden fence covered with berry vines or marked by fruit trees holds more interest than one of just wood or stone. Attract beneficial bees and butterflies to your garden area by covering arched trellises and wrought-iron gates with honeysuckle or other flowering climbing plants that doubles as decor. A variety of foliage with varying leaf shapes and unusual hues of pink, red, purple, yellow and chartreuse keep your garden alive with color in between the bloom cycles of flowering plants.
