Garden Stakes - Decorative, Butterfly, and Solar Garden Stakes

Updated on January 28, 2017

Garden Stakes

If you are looking for something unique and colorful to add to your yard or garden to add a personal decorative tough, then you may want to consider adding decorative garden stakes to your outdoor scenery. Mostly they are decorative, but the solar type are functional too.

Decorative garden stakes come in many different colors, designs, sizes, and types. You can find decorative garden stakes that are whimsical, funny or just colorful - whatever suits your personality and your yard. Theses types of stakes can add to a flower garden, an herb garden, or you may just want to border them along some shrubs or around a tree. There are many different ways that they can be used to add a little decoration to your yard.

Garden stakes can even be used with plants in the house to add a little color or cheer to any room or plant. You can even find these stakes with solar power.

Solar Garden Stakes

Adding solar power garden stakes creates a unique look in the evening and night light. Obviously powered by the sun during the day, these stakes can be functional by lighting a path or just decorative to create ambiance at a evening summer gathering. They recharge during the day, and light your garden path at night.

They are inexpensive and functional - a rarity these days! Many of the dollar-type discount stores regularly have them as a feature item.

Butterfly Garden Stakes

Butterflies are a favorite of gardeners everywhere. These garden stakes don't really attract butterflies, but they come in some striking glass combinations that capture the light and catch the eye as well. For some, butterflies signify new life and that thought contributes to the popularity of decorating with butterflies in many areas of the garden and home.

Flower Garden Stakes

These flower stakes come in mighty handy if you don't have a green thumb! And if you do, well, they provide color and joy year round. There's nothing like seeing that first bloom of the spring, so instead of waiting for that to happen, provide yourself with year-round blooms and color. Sunflowers and daffodils are just a couple of choices for flower garden stakes.

A current trend is glass flower stakes mostly made by artisans using recycled glass items. Or glass flowers that just sit on the ground, again made by artisans. There are many examples on Pinterest you can learn from.

We use patriotic stakes around our pool area in the summer to add flavor to the summer months.

Lawn Ornaments

Along the same line as garden stakes, you may also want to incorporate lawn ornaments in your overall outdoor decorating plans. Like garden stakes, lawn ornaments come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, sizes and objects. You can find them made out of many different materials such as wood, concrete, plastic and metal. They can be dragons, horses, gnomes, or many other real or imaginary objects. You are sure to find decorative garden stakes or lawn ornaments in a fashion that fits your personality. These types of decorations help you extend your personality into your yard.

      So very sorry to hear about the loss of your husband who initially started this hub. Nice to know that you are carrying it forward.

      Would love to see some of these solar crackle glass ball lights in person in someone's yard. They look pretty in the photo. Thanks for making us aware of such things. Voted up and interesting.

      We use the solar lights and a small variety of decorative garden stakes. They look so pretty when interspersed among the flowers and greenery.
