1. Solar energy lights
During the day, the yard captures the eyes of the people walking by with its beauty. The perfectly grown and cut grass, the flowers, and the bushes. The art that you created around it is going to be something that people passing admire. During the night, though, this can’t be seen.
To make it sparkle during the night, you should install a few lights around the main path leading to your front door. These lights can be solar-powered. What does this mean? You can make them cordless and still shine bright during the night with the help of the sun’s energy.
During the day, their system will collect the sun’s energy and it will be used for the lights to shine during the night. This is completely self-sufficient and you have nothing to worry about it working properly. You’ll have a path in your yard that’s amazingly looking even at night.
2. Old bike with nice flowers
For those who love bikes and flowers, there’s the old bike planted with amazing flowers. All you need is a bike that you were about to throw out because it’s not used anymore. If you don’t have one but you like the idea, go to the flea market and find the worst-looking one that they’ll sell you for peanuts.
Equip it with pots wherever you can fit them. Make it look like it’s carrying products for the market. Don’t forget to make sure it’s perfectly anchored into the ground so that wind won’t take it down. When you do it, you’ll have wonderful-looking art in your yard.
3. Pallets turned into a table
Whenever you have a large object delivered to your door, it is done so on a pallet. We usually throw these things in the garbage but it’s smart not to. Get a few of them and turn them into a table used for your yard.
The wood is strong enough to withhold different weather conditions and at the same time, it makes a perfectly looking vintage table. Get some adequate chairs, and you have yourself an amazing item. See a little more about how to make this yourself here.
Don’t go overboard with spending thousands on a gigantic fountain that looks more like a pool than a fountain, but getting a small one that will keep turning the water up and down is amazing.
There are lots of options in stores selling them and you can find one for a fair price. They use the same water which they rotate in a circle. It looks like spring coming out of your yard. The noise it produces can be so calming.
Seeing birds come and drink from it from time to time can also be beautiful. This is an item that will turn your yard from a quiet boring place, into a lovely yard where you can mediate listening to the sound of water falling.
5. Stone lines around your flowers
Have you seen how some people placed white rocks around their flower furrows? Place perfectly clean white rocks around them and check out how amazing the place turns. The rocks are also great for birds not to eat the seeds that you plant.
Pouring water over it is not a problem as the rocks will not absorb any of it. You end up having a great place looking stylish and modern, and you protect your plants from outside dangers, too.
Installing a birdhouse on one of your trees, or near the front door can make the place look amazing. Not just because the item looks interesting, but because this will surely attract birds in your yard. Their chatter and singing can be so relaxing and amusing.
Don’t forget to place a little food on the front entrance of the house. This is going to attract birds to come and make it look like it’s truly their house. Over time, the birds will eat it and you’ll need to put in a little more. However, this shouldn’t be a problem because you’ll always have these lovely visitors around your place.
7. Old wheelbarrow planter
Everyone who lives in a house has a wheelbarrow. It’s a must for many reasons. You probably have one that needs to be replaced with a newer model, right? If so, don’t throw the old one away. Instead, make a few tiny holes in it, fill it up with soil, and plant some flowers.
