Just like you accessorise yourself with watches, jewellery and more, any garden decoration is incomplete without accessories and ornaments.
I had a chance of visiting one of my friends recently, who had recently developed a lot of interest in gardening. She had all the essential gardening tools and a lovely selection of plants in her garden. But she still felt that there was something missing.
Can you relate to her problem?
If yes, then this post is for you.
A beautiful garden brings a joy unmatched by any other thing. Fresh flowers, a small orchard of fruits, and a little patch of vegetables – Wow! Apart from flowers and plants, you would love your garden to be filled with an assortment of beautiful things. Garden decoration items, accessories and ornaments is all you need.
Complete your garden with these essential accessories. We have created this ultimate list of garden accessories that you must have in your private eden.
Let’s have a look!
1. Garden Sculptures & Statues
We know that your garden is primarily aimed towards flowers and greenery.
But, who says that a little bit of garden decor cannot be added to further beautify its appearance?
Decorating your garden is all about adding aesthetic beauty. Sculptures and statues have been used for gardens since ancient times. Nothing can go wrong with this timeless version of garden decoration.
2. Decorative Stones or Pebbles
Decorative stones have been one of the go-to elements of garden decoration in recent years. Not only do these stones help in beautification of your house, but they are used extensively in resorts and hotels as well.
For instance, you can use these unpolished white stones to accessorise your nursery. Although these are simple decorations, they contribute a lot towards enhancing your garden. What’s more is that these are long-lasting and highly affordable. These are the two qualities that are rarely found together.
3. Garden Fountain
The third item in our list of garden accessories is a well-structured garden fountain. Either these will run on batteries, or on electricity.
If you ask us, we would recommend the solar-powered ones.
Way to save expenses, isn’t it?
Look for a fountain that comes with a long-lasting pump. Also, try to pick a fountain that allows different patterns of water to be streamed through the nozzle.
As far as possible, the pump should keep the water contained within its boundaries. Always check if there is some unnecessary water spillage.
4. Wind Chimes
It might seem a little too extra to add wind chimes as a part of your garden decor.
However, sometimes nothing can go on with a simple accessory like this bird wind chime. These look especially beautiful when hung alongside creepers or hanging vines. But you have to take care not to get anything too large and gaudy.
These additions are even better when you have an outdoor garden facing the direction of the wind. In this case, you should try getting a set with small bells and ambient colors. Not only are these a symbol of good fortune, but they also add a fun element to your garden.
Another garden ornament which has continued to remain popular through all these years are birdbaths.
Also, it is rightly so after all nothing can beautify your garden more than a pair of little birds bathing in the sun!
If you do not wish to spend too much, you can go for options like this metal and plastic birdbath by Ascent Homes.
In addition, these are rather easy to install and do not require a lot of effort. Clearly, they make for a hassle-free addition to your garden- providing both beauty and function.
6. Garden Wall Art
Who says that your love for paintings and art should only be reflected inside your living room?
Using wall art to add some quirks to your garden is slowly becoming the new favourite trend among garden decor experts.
As a matter of fact, most people have been very accepting of this fresh idea. Hence products like this set of Buddha paintings are becoming one of the highest selling items on Amazon.
Try to buy wall paintings that come with a wooden or coarse plastic frame. If you buy metal frames, make sure they are not very broad.
7. Balcony Planters
These are some of the most versatile and colorful additions you can make among garden decorations.
Balcony Planters are usually made from high-quality plastic. However, there are some variants available in stone and metal as well. If you’re looking for a matching set, then you might want to buy these railing planters by Bulfyss.
It goes without saying that your plants have to get the maximum attention in your garden. Therefore, for people who manage a small nursery in their balconies – no option could be better. Moreover, any list of garden ornaments is incomplete without some hanging planters.
8. Outdoor Candle Lantern
Outdoor candles lantern have made a massive comeback in outdoor home decor in the past few years.
People absolutely love these beautiful red and yellow candle holders that are fashioned after lanterns. In addition, these easily last for a long time and are the perfect addition for garden decor.
You can make full use of the ambience created by candles by planning a home-cooked outdoor dinner. Additionally, you could also go for a set of scented candles if you’d like. The only thing you have to be careful of is that you do not place them near inflammable objects.
9. Solar Garden Lights
This item is one of our favorites in this list of garden accessories. Cost-efficient and durable solar garden lights might be the missing element in your near-perfect garden. You do not have to go for anything fancy and expensive.
For instance, these Solar lamps by IFITech make the perfect addition to your home. Naturally, your garden will receive a good amount of sunshine. What better way to economize on this aspect?
10. Artificial Grass Carpet Mat
The last item in our list of garden decor is an artificial grass mat or artificial turf. For many people, it is impossible to grow grass organically and prune or mow it through years that follow. If you are one such person, then this garden ornament might be the saving grace.
In particular, we liked this turf by yellow weaves because of its quality and cost. But before you decide to make a purchase, examine closely if you want nylon or polyethylene artificial grass.
Well, what are you waiting for?
