Often, when people hear the old phrase "lawn ornament," they immediately think of a pink flamingo. There is nothing wrong with that since the history of the pink flamingo lawn ornament is very detailed, filled with excitement, romance and intrigue. Well, maybe not all that, but in the 1950s, many pink flamingo lawn ornaments were not made of plastic like those today. They were big, highly durable metal creations weighing up to 9 or 10 pounds each! In the old days their bodies were made of cast aluminum, their legs out of steel rods.
Today, even though the pink flamingo will always be close to our heart, there is now a much larger variety of lawn ornaments. We always handpick our decoratives and have a fun time opening the boxes when the shipments arrive. Come in and see our selection.
When designing a garden around the house, its rewarding to consider different areas of the yard as additional rooms or extensions of rooms in the home. Plants both devide and define the rooms, while well placed works of yard art focus attention and set the mood.
For most gardeners, going to the nursery can be a thrilling experience because we love plants and nurseries are, in essence, large gatherings of plants. It's like a plant convention where the plants gather, looking good and they hang around, waiting to be seen, to be found and adopted by humans with green thumbs. It's an odd event because the plants aren't in the ground, but are transient, looking and waiting for homes.
