Ornamental outdoor objects lend distinction and grace to your backyard landscape.
You`ve planted the seeds, nurtured the blooms, perhaps even arranged outdoor furniture. Now on to the fun part: accessorising your backyard. Accessories in the garden work in much the same way they do inside your home: They provide balance and texture. Use them to fill blank spaces, to add colour or sound, to obscure something unsightly and to delineate spaces.
The base of an attractive birdbath, for instance, could be used to cover a stump; a row of stone pavers beautifully marks a pathway; a wind chime makes a lovely musical announcement of shifting breezes. Use accessories to help define your garden`s style, whether it`s formal (think marble statuary) or whimsical (a grouping of the sunflower-shaped bird feeders would make that statement loudly).
