No, I don’t mean hanging decorations all over the place if that is what you are thinking. We can decorate by adding some window planter boxes with some nice flower arrangements.

You can also put some flower beds around the base of the home in different locations about the yard as well. It gives off a nice look to the yard and adds another point of focus when people are admiring.

    1. That sounds like a good idea. There are many people who are gifted with wood making talents that can really turn a yard into a paradise. Let me see what you come up with.

  1. My mother always likes birds and I am sure she will like your wildlife attraction idea. I can probably find something she will like and it can be a perfect present for her.

  2. Very nice site. I was wondering if you knew anything about maintenance on wicker furniture? Or in your opinion would it be better to stick with wood outdoor furniture? In our case, bird feeders have been fun because the birds come and dive bomb the cats. So far they’ve (the birds) have been winning. Good luck with your business. And if you have a chance, please let me know about the wicker furniture.

    1. I bet seeing those birds dive bomb the cats would be cool. I am not real knowledgeable about wicker maintenance. Me myself if it looks good to me I would pick it. I figure outdoor furniture will deteriorate over time so I would be prepared to upgrade every two or three years. But I will see what I can find out.

  3. This is wonderful for someone like me who loves to be outside. It’s coming into winter in my part of the world, so that fireplace look is exactly what I’m after. Thanks for the great ideas.

    1. Glad I was able to give you an idea Shirley. I bet your yard will be the place to be if you do put a fireplace in. Shoot me a picture if you do. I would love to see the outcome.

  4. That I am aware, in UK people do not like to gather on the front gardens – possibly though this may be due to lack of space, where I am aware that houses in the States have space for a front porch, which can make a nice sit down area. Personally, I prefer the privacy guaranteed by my back garden.
    You propose an array of wonderful ideas Ronnie. From garden furniture to bird feeders, you are right, they make such a nice and relaxing environment. May I add, I have also seen about wooden feeders which attract ladybirds or other wild ‘creatures’. Very nice too!

    1. Thank you for the extra information on feeders. I am sure more people love to hear others ideas as well. Sounds like you are a little bit of a wildlife observer. It’s pretty nice, isn’t it? The birds really do add an attraction to the yard. One other person likes how the birds in her yard dive bomb her cats. Well, have a good summer season and thanks for visiting.
