Lawn Decoration Types:

  • Stones. Stones are an attractive lawn decoration and are perfect to border pine straw islands and flower beds.
  • Statues. Statues are becoming an increasingly popular lawn decoration, and are a critical part of the Asian decorating influence.
  • Bridges. Another attractive lawn decoration is the stone or wooden bridge that is frequently used in pine straw beds.
  • Flags. Choosing a flag for a lawn decoration allows you to pick from a variety of vibrant styles and colors.

As with any other type of accessory, there are some bad styles; pink flamingoes are a definite no-no. Here are some guidelines that you should keep in mind to keep your lawn tasteful and attractive.

Lawn Decoration Guidelines:

  • Current Styles. Resist the urge to select a lawn decoration that was popular in the 70s or 80s. It's not nostalgic, it's just plain tacky.
  • Overdoing It. Too many squirrel or rabbit statues are a bad idea also. Limit the lawn decoration ideas to just a few.
  • Durability. Your lawn decoration should be durable and long lasting if it is to withstand inclement weather.

When carefully selected and placed, a lawn decoration can give that finishing touch to your perfect lawn. Choose wisely, and please stay away from the pink flamingos.
