Decorating your yard does not have to involve the same tacky pink
flamingos that your grandmother used to have. There are many more options
available to you and are as simple as going to your local store.

The same goes   with Yard figurines as it does for everything else in life.
Too much of a   good thing can cause anything too go bad. Too many yard
figurines can   make your land go from inviting sanctuary to cluttered want
to be outdoor   museum. Moderation is key in decorating outdoors.

Placing reasonably sized statues randomly through out the yard can create
a visually enjoyable experience. Placing a figurine of a small animal
under a bush or by a plant is a cute idea that can give the illusion of
an actual animal peaking out. Yard figurines that involve animals,
fairies or small angels are always a pleasant choice. If the statue is
larger than average height of a person, it is best to avoid it. Think
simplicity when it comes to a yard figurine’s size as well. Keeping the
figurines the size they are in real life is more visually appealing to
the average on looker. If you do choose a large piece keep it simple,
have other plants around it to detract from the size and never ever have
more than one large piece together.

Another aspect to take into consideration is a yard figurines
practicality. A small figurine of a turtle or hedgehog by the door that
also serves as a boot or shoe scraper. This is helpful in so many ways if
you have problems with dirt being tracked into the house. Some yard
figurines can also double as planters bringing in more nature to your
yard in a quirky pleasant way.

Yard figurines don’t necessarily mean just statues of animals and such.
Yard figurines also include fountains. The sound of water can be very
calming adding beauty and a little bit of nature to your yard. Other not
so thought about options are gazing balls. These are glazed often colored
balls that are either on a fountain like podium or placed in clusters
through out the garden
Never underestimate the use of a plain rock as a yard figurine. Yes there
might not be much to it. Of course it is just a rock but a pretty colored
somewhat large rock placed in a flowerbed or on the edge can help create
visually pleasant experience.

They key to yard figurines is to not only keep it simple but to also
think creatively. Let your yard figurines reflect you and your home.
Choose pieces that are visually pleasing and add a reflection of who you
are. Look at other people’s gardens to take in inspiration for ideas.
Taking these steps can help transform your yard into an inviting
sanctuary and keep you from having a yard like your grandmother’s.
