Using Inexpensive Garden Statues to Spruce Up Your Yard

Jul 15, 2008
There are a lot of great ways to beautify a yard or garden. A vast collection of colorful flowers and plants often will do the trick. Sometimes lawn decorations such as light posts or rocks are also nice. Others will take the little more extensive route and incorporated a creek or brick path in their garden. Needless to say, all of these methods take a lot of work and not everyone has the time to do these methods.

Some people need to know some quick methods of sprucing up their yard. Their yard may look unsatisfying to the neighborhood, or look just plain simple and not overly eye catching. The owners simply do not have the time and these are the kind of yards that need a quick fix to look attractive until time is available to get some of the heavier work mentioned earlier done.

One easy tip is to water your yard. It is unfortunate how few people take the time to actually for their grass. What color do you think looks better, green grass or burnt yellow? For those with smaller homes and lawns this should not be a problem, however, I could see where those owning larger lots will have difficulty. It is probably a good guess that those owning larger homes probably have kids. Well do your kids do chores? Chores are a great way to learn responsibility and children need to learn that money is earned not just given away. Let them take over watering duties. And if you don't have kids, well hiring someone to care for your lawn is probably your best bet, particularly if time is an issue.

One easy fix is the use of garden decorations. If you want the best bang for your buck, go get some inexpensive garden statues and use them to decorate the yard. They're not difficult to find. In fact, most thrift stores will carry statues. Specialty stores will also have these along with other gardening decor and tools; check these kinds of stores out if you are really serious about your lawn.

What is great about statues is they are usually themed. In other words, you can generally make a scene and place a theme on your yard. You could purchase a lot of inexpensive rabbit, bear and other woodland creature statues and have forest cotton theme. Also, buying lawn gnomes that appear to be working is a great way to accent an area of your lawn.

Long story short, inexpensive lawn statues are a great way to decorate a yard. They're quick to setup, easy to use and aren't very hard on the wallet. I highly recommend using statues as decor for your garden.
