To make your outdoor landscape design pop with your particular style and flare, add some accessories! Everyone has a style that can be brought out in an outdoor landscape design. It is time to wake up your style for your pool, patio, garden or landscape!
Try these accessory ideas on for size:
Plants – Choose from different plants that will work well in your climate while making your outdoor landscape shine. Consider using large planters, interchanging plants throughout the year to match the seasons. You can incorporate hanging plants, garden trees and other ideas. Having a spice garden near your outdoor kitchen is a great idea to consider.
Bird Baths – To create a restful scene on your outdoor lawn, install a bird bath to bring life to your landscape. There are types of bird baths that have water features incorporated, or you can stick with a very simple ceramic or stone design.
Stones – Rock gardens can be extremely beautiful. Choose stones that blend with the colors of your landscape design and use different sizes and shapes. Some may have a circular area with rounded stones as the base and then a bird bath or sun dial in the middle. Open up your inner Zen and let your creativity flow.
Lawn Gnomes – These whimsical creatures are almost a requirement in landscape design. Thankfully, you do not have to go with gnomes all the time. Instead you can have ceramic squirrels, bronze birds or other types of garden art tucked away into little corners or around a turn to catch the attention of any passerby.
Playground – A playground, perhaps with a tree house, can be a great addition to an outdoor landscape design. Not only will children adore a play area but you can also turn it into a very attractive part of your garden or lawn area.
Recycled materials – Tires, bed frames, antique furniture and other items can be resurrected as an outdoor accessory. They can be used as garden art, added to a boring brick wall, or used as planters or ivy stands.
Storage – Implement storage containers that blend into your outdoor environment but also serve a practical purpose to store tools, hoses and other items.
