Get your garden ready to grow with these easy spring decorating tips! While winter weather gives perennial plants and trees time to rest and recharge for the coming seasons, it can leave the landscape looking a bit dreary. Frost warnings force us to hold off on planting tender flowers, yet we long for the joyful colors that come with spring. Simple touches like rain gauges, wind spinners and sculptures add life to your lawn or garden as you wait for warm, sunny days ahead.
Add stakes to flower beds, focusing on perennial plants that will fill out as weather grows warmer. While pollinators are still on their way to colder climates, you can enjoy their presence in sculpted form! Set a decorative garden stake in place while your plants are still dormant, and they’ll surround it beautifully as the growing season progresses.
Treat your feathered friends to their own private spa by adding a bird bath to your landscape. Whether you opt for a simple, hanging model or something a bit larger, they’ll appreciate the opportunity to drink water and take a refreshing rinse-off after their spring migration. Remember to add bird feeders to attract the species you enjoy most. Keep them topped off and you’ll have the opportunity to view lots of springtime visitors!
Statues aren’t just for spring decorating: They can add interest to your garden all year long – even when snow is on the way. Whimsical animals, colorful birds, and stone cairns are among our most popular garden sculptures.
April showers bring May flowers! While you’re waiting patiently for the opportunity to stop and smell the roses, transform rainwater into a flowing fountain. Rain chains replace gutters, and let you add a decorative touch to your home, garage, or shed. Be sure to place a receptacle or some river rocks underneath, so fast-moving water is dispersed safely.
Windy spring weather? You won’t mind it nearly so much when you add wind spinners to your landscape! Available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, these wonderful kinetic sculptures look amazing in a variety of settings. Try surrounding the base with pots to be filled with flowers once weather grows warmer, or choose a wind spinner with a clamp for easy attachment to a deck’s railing.
Decorating with stakes, rain gauges, and other elements is an easy way to bridge the gap between the seasons – and once those decorative touches are in place, you can continue to enjoy them until autumn leaves fall!We’d love to hear from you: Which of our spring decorating ideas is your favorite?
