We've all seen the wrong way to add "art" to a yard; pink flamingos, cement deer, and color gnomes are all examples of what not to do. Yet adding interesting sculptures, fountains, pots, or art is a great way to add detail and enhance your garden. By following a few tips, you can easily bring these elements into your yard.
- Location - Place your art carefully, considering how it will look from all sides and areas of the yard.
- Neighborhood - Consider any possible violations of your homeowner's association rules.
- Prune - Make sure art is always on display by pruning plants away from the peice.
- Lighting - Add some special lighting to show off the art fountain, or sculpture
- Don't Mix Styles - The piece should complement your home and garden. Don't add an ultra-modern fountain to a home built in the Tuscan style, for instance.
- Size and Scale - Avoid small art pieces that are difficult to see. Look for elements of the same scale of your yard.
- Materials - Watch for materials that will last. Plastic fountains and pots will deteriorate over the next few years after exposure to weather.
