Lighthouses for your Garden

Updated on July 17, 2014

Pick a Theme for Your Outdoor Decorations

Do you love lighthouses? Are you looking for a great theme for your garden or patio? If you are a lighthouse lover than perhaps this would be a great theme for you. There are a wide variety of different items available to use in you garden or outdoor area. Some are specifically for the outdoors and others are items that you could adapt to fit your outdoor lighthouse theme. On this page I will give you a some ideas on decorating the outdoors with lighthouses.

I love to decorate with lighthouses both indoors and out. The lighthouse in this photo is from my garden and I also have a lighthouse birdfeeder nearby. On my front porch I have three lighthouses arranged on a block of wood. They serve as a welcome to our guests.

From Welcome Signs to Bird Houses you will find lots of great ideas to make your outdoor living space unique. These ideas are great for those of you on a budget too...most items are under $20 and many are even under $10.

Happy Lighthouse Shopping!

Welcome to Ponce Inlet

This lighthouse welcomes people to a town in Florida. I stopped and took this photo when we were visiting the lighthouse. We were not sure where the lighthouse was located so when we saw this sign we knew we were on the right track.

Signs can also welcome people to your home. They might take the form of a plaque by your door, a colorful flag or perhaps a message on your welcome mat.

Why not have a lighthouse sign to welcome people to your home?

Welcome to our Home

There are many types of lighthouse welcome signs that you can add to your home. You might have a sign with a lighthouse on it or perhaps you would choose one of the colorful flags that are available with lighthouses on them.

The lighthouse welcome touch I have chosen here is a welcome mat. It is both functional and colorful and it adds to your lighthouse theme.

Brightly colored and functional your guests will enjoy this lighthouse mat.

 

Windchimes

Wind chimes are a wonderful way to make your garden special. I love to hear the gentle tinkling of wind chimes. They are particularly delightful in the spring and fall when I have my windows open and can enjoy the wind chimes.

These wooden lighthouses with windchimes attached are another great choice. I love the three little lighthouses.

 

Birdfeeder

This birdfeeder was a gift from my husband.  I love watching the little finches feeding at the lighthouse.

Functional Decorations - Don't forget our feathered friends

Continue your lighthouse outdoors theme with one of these great lighthouse birdhouses or birdfeeders. I have a solar lighthouse birdfeeder in my back garden. It is pictured above.

Here is the solar finch feeder that I have in my backyard. It really attracts the finches.

 

Solar Powered Lights for your Garden

I have a lighthouse sitting in the middle of my garden. You see it pictured in the introductory photo. I love the way it becomes the centerpiece in my garden.

This 39" red and ivory solar lighthouse would also make a great garden centerpiece. The bright red and ivory color will stand out among your plants during daytime hours and then at night the warm glow from the 3 Amber LED's will give your garden an inviting look.

I really like the solar lights for gardens. You don't have to worry about wiring and the rechargeable batteries will give you many hours of enjoyment.

A lighthouse light in your garden will add a festive look both during the day and during your evening entertaining hours.

 

A Touch of the Sea in Your Garden

I love outdoor décor that is done tastefully. I like to pick a theme and then use it in the various touches throughout my garden and yard. I am not really big on an overabundance of outdoor décor. I like for most of the décor to be plants and shrubs, but I do like a touch of my theme to be in among my plants. I think this colorful wind spinner would be a great touch of color in a planting area that is mostly green. It will help to bring your lighthouse theme together.

      I like that solar powered lighthouse! I've been to the Ponce Inlet lighthouse many times, for sightseeing and lectures held there. I used to live in Daytona Beach Shores.

      I think you could have a lighthouse outside - in my garden it would be a great idea because it is so dark.

      I would love to have an actual working lighthouse for my backyard décor! Of course, not life-size.

      Nice photos. I have never seen a lighthouse in one of gardens in Slovenia. We have a lot of dwarfs, some animal figures and that is about all. Lighthouses add a lot of interesting possibilities to make a story... Thanks!

      I think I favor the Decorative Garden Solar Lighthouse in your collection, what a great idea to make it solar. I've always been drawn to lighthouses, we just never get to see them here in North Dakota for some reason.

      I'm so ready for spring. I'm itching to dig in the dirt. I never thought to add lighthouses to my garden theme. Something to think about.

      Thanks for sharing

      I love the Lighthouse birdhouses. When we lived in PA we loved visiting light houses at Cape May. We wanted to start visiting all the light houses on the east coast but moved to CO. Now we have different vacation plans. I love all of your lighthouse lenses.
