Pink lawn flamingo statues and other lawn and garden curios can be the difference between an ordinary house and a very special home. As funny as it sounds, the pink birds can have a unusual place in the outdoor landscape of your home. Outdoor lawn ornaments are not the only item that can make or break the look of an outdoor garden. Rather, it is one of many things that add to the whole atmosphere and decor of your yard.

Creating an enjoyable backyard can be as complex as removing everything and rebuilding, or as subtle as the simple placement of a hammock or special garden art throughout the space.

First and foremost, you must identify what your open-air needs are and start from there. Do you want a simple back away for by hand? Or do you need space for a family to play games and eat outside? Do you need a covered patio? Do you want water features? A tropical look?

Once you have identified how the freedom will be used by your family, deletion of the unwanted hardscape or landscape can begin. It’s important to stick to your original plan so that the project does not grow too large, too expensive or exceed your time line.

Once the old hardscape and landscape are removed, it’s point to install the new hardscape, whether it be a cement patio, a garden path, a slate or brick patio or mow strips.

Once the hardscape is complete, the fun begins, which usually includes a trip to the nursery or garden supply shop to pick the plants you will place in your garden. In order for your plants to thrive it’s very important to place them in the apposite place in your yard. Before your trip to the nursery, take a walk around your yard and note the shady and sunny spots and pick plant life according to their sun and water needs, and how big you can expect them to get when mature. And remember, if you expect plants to last year-round, you must take into account that the sunny and shady areas of your yard change with the seasons. Make a list of how many shade plants and how many sun-loving plants you’ll need. I always like to leave diminutive spaces for annuals since they usually supply the most vibrant color to your garden.

You also must decide whether your plants will be on a drip system or large-scale sprinklers. Drip systems are a great way to cut down on stream usage which is important these days, and using a drip system also cuts down on weeds. I usually use these most of all except for the small spaces where I plant annuals bunched together.

Once the plants are to be found in your garden, it’s time to add the special touches that add interest to your garden. This is the time to place your bird baths, garden statues, hummingbird feeders moreover other garden treasures that transform the area and give it a special touch.
