If you are looking to make some improvements to your garden, then you’re in the right place. Keeping your lawn maintained and in good condition can be a full time job in itself, but there are other ways and means of guaranteeing your outdoor space looks as good as it makes you feel.
You can choose to add stone ornaments or features as a focal point. You can add a variety of evergreen, all-season flora and foliage to add some colour, and you can differentiate sections of the garden for different purposes.
When it comes to ornaments and décor for the outside of your home, garden statues are up there with some of the best. While the plastic flamingos and kitsch garden ornaments of days gone by have had their moment in the spotlight, it is the statues, icons and elegant stone structures that remain on the must-have list.
The trend of extending interior design into our outdoor spaces and gardens is one that has come into its own over the last few decades. With more and more people having an aesthetic vision of what their garden should look like, the more common these focal elements now are.
Ornaments in History
While garden ornaments and statues are commonplace today, this was not always the case. While the obsession with statues is believed to have started with the Greek Gods – (find out more about this here), there is history behind each and every garden ornament today.
Many of the elements we see in gardens these days, including gnomes and water features all stem from fashion trends around the world. However, it is the newer finishes and building materials that breathe new life into the more traditional garden features, transforming them for a modern world, to reflect current trends.
It is becoming more and more common for people to invest in their outdoor space, converting it into a liveable and usable space all year round. With the addition of a few key pieces – a garden statue to draw your eye towards the delicate pond flowers or a stone bench blending seamlessly into the perfect reading spot beneath your favourite tree – you too can reap the benefits.
