Garden Decorations You Need for Your Front Yard and Outdoor Patio
Take your garden decor and backyard outdoor patio game to the next level this Fall with some simple additions that can completely change the look of the exterior of your home.
Potted Garden Plants
Another simple way to up your garden and outdoor patio space is by adding potted flowers and plants around your patio. But regular potted plants take up significant space, especially when you have large support beams throughout your patio area or front porch. You can instantly dress them up with these wrap-around deck post planters from Hammacher Schlemmer.
These wrap-around planters quickly wrap around a patio post, a deck post, or even a mailbox to add colorful flowers and plants in even the tightest spaces. They are easy to install without the use of any hardware or tools. They are weather and stain resistant so they won’t get discolored with the sun or any other harsh elements. And no worries if you have a black thumb- the internal water reservoir has a self-watering feature so you don’t have to worry about constantly remembering to water the plants.
Solar LED Landscape Lights and Decor
These solar LED landscape lights are perfect for front yard decorations. You can use them to line the pathway to your front door or in the backyard to add some light around your patio in the evenings. They add significant curb appeal to your home and give a gentle, relaxing glow in your backyard for all your evening soirees and family nights.
The Hammacher Schlemmer solar LED lights come in a set of 6 so they can easily be paired with a couple sets to create a holistic look for your front yard and outdoor patio decor. They are a generous size at 4.5 inches in diameter and are staked into the ground so they are level with your ground or walkway. This unique design makes them unobtrusive with your other garden decorations in either your front yard and your backyard.
You don’t have to worry about them going out either- eight hours of sunlight can power these lights for up to 10 hours. They will turn on automatically at dusk and can last up to 10 years. It is a simple way to completely revamp your garden decor without complicated wiring or expensive electric bills.
Another way to light up your garden decor is by adding Solar Walkway lights. Not only do these add a great ambiance in the evening and night time but they also add decor to your outdoor space during the day. These Best Solar Walkway lights by Hammacher Schlemmer provide a bright white light, even hours after the sun has gone down, especially when compared to other solar walkway lights. They come in either stainless steel or black to match your backyard garden decor and they are durable against rain, sun, and frost. They are simple to install and don’t add anything to your electric bill.
The types of flowers you put in your planters depend on the climate for your area as well as the amount of sunlight that particular spot gets throughout the day. You also have to decide how high or low maintenance you would like the plants to be. One of the easiest plants to take care of are hibiscus, especially if you live in a warm climate or you get quite a bit of sun throughout the year. The bright colors add a vibrant touch to your garden decorations with the tropical species coming in shades of red, pink, yellow, orange, purple, lavender-blue, white, and bicolor.
Hibiscus grow well when planted in containers, which makes them a perfect plant to add to your wrap-around deck planter. They add bright and bold colors to your front porch or backyard patio, making it look inviting and warm for friends and family. They are great accent pieces for your garden decorations.
Tips for Growing Hibiscus:
- Place them in an area where they can get 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight.
- They need plenty of water, and the internal reservoir of the wrap-around deck planters helps to keep them hydrated.
- General fertilizer works fine for hibiscus plants.
- They can grow anywhere from 2 to 15 feet, depending on the conditions and the species.
Your garden decor doesn’t all have to be outside, though. Hibiscus can grow inside as well, as long as it is in a spot with plenty of sunlight. And if you love to have your garden decor inside as well as outside, houseplants like the ones from Costa Farms are perfect for adding a beautiful touch to your indoor garden.
