Five Easy Ways to Personalize Your Lawn & Garden Space

Are you looking for easy ways to personalize your outdoor space? Do you want your lawn or garden to reflect your sense of style? Great news, it is possible. Anybody can transform their outdoor space into a personal space that would inspire anyone who visits. Heck, maybe you can inspire your neighbors to be just as creative with their lawn and garden space. By finding the perfect décor that fits your style and wallet, you will discover simple and inexpensive ways to spruce up your outdoor living.
Wind Spinners
What is a Wind Spinner? Imagine a single slab of stainless steel cut into multiple rings inside each other. Then each one individually bent around the axis. All rings equally spaced through a 90 degree arc. Motion of the resulting structure about its axis would also create the illusion of movement of light from the center outward. Thus the stainless steel wind spinner is born. Wind Spinners can be placed anywhere in your yard, garden, deck, porch, patio, garage, work space, inside the house and even in the car. You can enjoy the same motion of wind inside your home by purchasing a motor. These beautiful decorations come in all different sizes, colors and themes. That’s why it makes it so easy to use Wind Spinners to personalize your outdoor space.
Wind Chimes
From the lovely tinkling sound of aluminum wind chimes, to the lower, mystical melodies of bamboo or wood chimes, this is a wonderful addition to your yard décor. Not only can you choose from a variety of sounds that add some of nature's music to your yard, but the style you need to match your decor will be easy to find. Choose a standard chime with pipes, an all-American theme, a décor of crosses or pipe organ sounds, a country and barn piece, or glass chimes in almost any form. Add some melody to your life!
Bird Houses & Bird Feeders
A great example of a simple form of lawn and garden décor that will draw in and give home to wildlife will always remain the bird house and/or bird feeder. While outside you can enjoy the touch of color and personality your chosen bird house or feeder brings, and more importantly, you will love seeing the birds and their families take refuge in your yard. This can be a joy for adults and an especially fun time of learning and watching for children. Add to it a traditional bird bath, or go creative with an entire bird "village" or humorous bird diner. Possibilities are endless!
Stepping Stones, Signs, & Plaques
You can accent your outdoors with a colorful sign or path of stepping stones in your yard. For the front yard, you may want to find a welcoming piece that invites visitors and gives a sense of hospitality. Just a few small signs can give your landscape an individual flair and homey feel. Go with an artistic and whimsical look, or create a theme of birds, butterflies, or country. Since cost on these items is low, you can find just one perfect item or go with several to complete the look you are creating.
Garden Planters & Flower Pots
Your garden may be full of gorgeous flowers, but why not bring a bit of the color and scent to your patio or front entrance? Outdoor pots allow you to have flowers anywhere, while adding the style of the pot itself. From oversized to small, flower pots make it possible to move your flowers to new locations simply for change or to find the best spot of sun or shade depending on the season. Flower pots also make a perfect gift that you can personalize for them!
These are just five examples of easy ways to decorate and liven up your outdoor space. Take advantage of the low-cost ideas today and spruce up your lawn & garden area to make it your own. Your family, friends and all other guests will appreciate all you put into your yard, so have fun with it!
