If ever there was a perfect spot for creative design, it's your lawn and garden. The fencing or gate is usually the first noticeable trait, be it wrought iron, plastic, wooden, ornamental, or modest in appearance. After that, let artistry shine! Even with the smallest allotment of lawn and garden, you can have a sandbox and play space for kids, a highlight of flowers, and an entertainment area for social gatherings. Depending on the exact acreage, a gazebo can designate where parties begin. There may still be a koi or turtle pond to accommodate every size yard, or a wishing well, decorative planters, and trellis of blooms to adorn the area.
Lanterns enhance your lawn and garden, as do a brick walkway, stepping stones, mosaic tiles, and multi-colored mulch. Flags, statues, string lights, fountains (functional for animals or purely decorative), and sundials are also quite affective. The potting bench full of fertilizer, soil, trowel, gloves, and seeds may initiate a comparable size of your lawn and garden, but the overall presentation is the star.
