A garden is a work of art in progress. Just by adding some outdoor garden decor here and there, your garden will become the very personal heaven you wanted. You don´t have to use all expensive materials or going beyond your means, after all, we don’t want to beautify the garden at the cost of the house! What are required are just the right touches such as appropriate landscaping ornaments. Just little additions or modifications can turn a mere garden into an idyll which boasts of symphony between flora and art in your yard.
Here Is How You Bring Art Into Your Garden.
#1 Theme – this is the first step to make your garden unique. A theme is what makes a garden stand apart from a traditional garden. You can have a rock garden, a bright colorful flower garden, a tropical, a desert themed garden or go for Japanese outdoor garden decor. The possibilities are endless. You could even come up with some unique garden art theme which complements the overall schema.
#2 Colors – just like everything else in life, correct combination gives out the accurate effect. Have a good look at your backyard and assess the need for adding the right combination or stone or metallic outdoor garden accessories. Combine bright orchids with pastel plants or arrange your pots and plants in around your garden so that the overall picture that comes up is that of a beautifully arranged flower vase – but remember you first have to have the vase.
#3 Water – cooling, soothing and colorless. Water is something which effortlessly blends in any background yet holds out on its own. Make space for a water garden design such as a small pond or a fountain and let the water gently flow down a delicate sculpture. This small addition of art in your garden will bring out the best of beauty around it.
#4 Light – you will be surprised at how much of a difference decorative outdoor lighting makes. Under the sun, all the flowers will look colorful and bright; it is only when you put on the lights after the sun sets that they show their hidden colors. It is as if plants have a separate nocturnal life of their own. Lighting, or solar lights, should be arranged, as well, to highlight special spots in your yard. Explore shades of light available and choose the one that best suits your collection in the garden.
#5 Accessories and art – the very meaning of accessorize is to decorate or to beautify. Your garden is so much more than just pots and plants. There are lots of outdoor garden decor statues and sculptures to choose from. Hanging lamps, wind chimes, painted pots, shades and lights, corner paintings, veils, sculptures, outdoor garden signs, sand and stones; the variety of garden art is exhausting. Choose the objects that fit within your budget and theme and change the way the world looks at your garden.

#7 Compost piles don´t have to be ugly. – A compost bin made of decorative brick creates a more permanent structure that can enhance the look of your property. You can use a simple garbage can and paint it nicely. You can go for a simple wooden or metal one and make a simple screen from bamboo to hide it from view. Camouflage is another option, many fast growing evergreen climbers are ideal for disguising things you’d rather not look at.
The aim of all your efforts is beyond mere beauty. The calming effect of joining nature and exterior house decoration has been known since forever but has now been proved, too. Being close to nature relieves us of everyday stress, adds an element of freshness and brightens to our day and approach to life. A healthy mindset resides in a healthy body. The impact of mental health on our body is far too much too ignore.
