Garden Art & Decorative Accessories

Accessories in the garden can add to its beauty, or its usefulness as an outdoor living space, or both. Appropriate decorations can also help to create a theme or mood.

For example, adding an Asian carving to a collection of tropical plants will strongly evoke the Balinese garden style. Adding an abstract modern sculpture or classical figure to the same garden will create a different look. And unlike growing the garden, the effect happens instantly and can be changed easily.

Note that art need not be just for looking at. Items like planters, water features, furniture or arches can be decorative as well as having a useful purpose.
