What comprises garden décor?Garden décor means different things to different people. Some of us like to think of the greenery too as part of garden décor. For a lot of people, garden décor is a very broad term that encompasses garden furniture, planters, sculptures, garden art, fences and grilles and other garden décor articles like pinwheels, garden globes, trivets, garden stakes and sundials. Whatever the definition, garden décor if used appropriately can really enhance the charm of any garden.
Before you bring in the garden decorIt goes without saying that there is not much you can do with an overgrown, poorly maintained garden even if you have the best outdoor furniture and accessories at your disposal. The first step to decorating a garden is without argument, the care and maintenance of the green patches. This could mean anything moving the lawn, trimming the hedges, de-weeding or tidying up the flower beds. Only once this is done, can you move on to the next stage of furnishing and decorating.
Things to keep in mind when adding decor in your gardenIdentify a focal point – Every garden should have a focal point. It becomes easier to design the rest of the space around it. This could be a gazebo, a fire pit, a rose pillar, a waterfall or a mural wall. You have to decide what works best for your space
Distribute evenly – Make sure every part of your garden has some décor element that enhances that particular area. Overloading one space too much disturbs the natural harmony of the outdoors.
Use height variation - Garden decor defines the space. Taller garden décor pieces add visual appeal in small spaces. Try and use varieties of height to smarten up your garden.
Hide the ugly – If there’s something in your garden that’s an eyesore but you can’t pull down or discard it, block it with climbers like ivy or vines and combine these with grilles or lattices if you can. These look great and will serve your purpose very well.
Create a harmony – Whatever you do, whatever you add as garden décor, make sure its all is in harmony with each other and with the natural surroundings of the garden. Nothing should look forced and out of place.
Don’t overcrowd – As with indoor spaces, filling up your garden with too many things isn’t going to work. Go for a few classy pieces instead of picking up whatever you come across.
Synergize with your interiors – As much as possible, have your outdoor décor reflect the character of your interiors. This doesn’t mean you place a leather sofa in your garden. It could be a synergy of colors, patterns and even materials.
Sustain and Maintain – Garden décor needs some upkeep and maintenance as it is exposed to all the elements of nature. Make sure you do regular wiping, cleaning, washing or polishing or whatever else is required to keep your décor pieces in good condition.
