Garden Water Fountain

Great Garden Accessories For Your Backyard!

Gardening for me is very therapeutic. When I am working in the garden I'm very calm. I like to grow flowers, especially my roses! I had yellow and red roses, together they make a beautiful looking bouquet and they smelled so good in the house. I've tried to find roses to add but they don't smell anymore! Have they been genetically modified for looks and not smell? Strange that whomever is making these changes needs to realize we want our flowers to smell! Whether or not you garden at a professional level or as a personal hobby, you will find gardening accessories here to exercise your creativity.

You can decorate all the different areas of your gardens with almost anything! Water fountains, arbors, outdoor solar lights for color and to keep you warm, a fireplace! Your garden can be as big or little as you want it, think about the time it will take for you to keep up with it, so it thrives.

There is a great DIY wine barrel sink for a project. It's a must have and a must make project if you want a sink outdoors. The options are completely up to you, check it out below!

Depending on the size of your garden, garden paths are functional for maintaining weeds, and can be decorated using stepping stones, brick or what ever you would like to see there. if you would like more privacy in your garden consider using backdrop walls, fences, and hedges, they are all good choices.

For those lucky people that get to use their gardens all year long, you have more options for more decorating. There are also night time accessories which include fire places, candle lanterns, oil lamps, patio torches, and illuminations. Solar powered products are good to have extra colors at night. I have some here so you can see what they look like.

Looking for garden feeders, hummingbird feeders or birdbaths are all good options to invite birds to visit one's garden and also make good ornaments. Want to attract beautiful butterflies to your garden? Visit Attracting Butterflies To Your Garden.

I hope you've found some good ideas here and plan on using them. One extra tip for trellises or arbors is to put sun loving plants on top, let them grow and you have extra shade from the sun.



How Can I Keep birds Away From Tomatoes?!

How Can I Keep birds Away From Tomatoes? I've been searching for just the right answer to that question for years! I was so tired of losing the battle to the birds. So, what is the solution? The best idea I've found is to use big red (shiny) Christmas ornaments keep the birds from pecking into my ripening tomatoes. Birds think the ornaments are something good to eat and quickly find out otherwise. When the tomatoes ripen birds aren't interested.

I personally like fragrant flowers all over my house. I love the smells, colors and the good feeling I get when I look at them or when walking by and catch the smell. I purposely grow scented flowers, I like to give them as gifts or dry them out for arrangements to add to presents or wreathes. I'm pretty creative so I just "play-it-by-ear" when I'm making stuff.

If you grow your own flowers, don't be afraid to cut yours and bring them in the house! Some plants, after you cut them back, will grow stronger and give you more blooms when they grow back. Giving you more blooms to bring in your house! Now stock up on containers and drying supplies.

Water Fountians In Your Garden - Voted Best Garden Accessory!

For adding large accessories in your garden, think about water fountains They have been vote best accessory for the garden due to the water sounds. Your water fountain can sound like crashing waves, rain sounds or just gently flowing water. Which ever sound you like the best, they are all relaxing sounds in your garden.

Water Fountains come in a variety of styles ranging from traditional to modern, table top to really large. Not only do they work as part of your decor but they also have a calming effect. Some of them are made of fiberglass which makes them lightweight and weather resistant. There are also solar-powered fountains with a remote solar panel that can be placed in the sun while the fountain is located in the shade.

Solar Garden Lights

Solar LED Flower Light

I love these solar powered lights, I just think they are beautiful! These lights have a solar panel inside the globe, then converts sunlight into electricity that is then stored in the battery pack. The light comes on automatically when it gets dark outside and turns itself off when it gets light. Just put them in your garden and leave them alone, doesn't get much easier than that! You don't have to just get solar flowers you can Sphears and other solar garden products for your garden or backyard patio. Just figure out where you want to put them so they'll look the best.

      We have four arches so far. I want to add one more in the front yard. Gardening is my therapy too. We're long overdue for a mulch run. Then I'll be busy for weeks.
