6 Unique Garden Art Pieces

By Patti Plummer

Garden art is designed to enhance a home and outdoor setting’s overall appearance. Yard art primarily includes items that are placed around outdoor spaces and swimming pools. Statuary and fountains are primary examples of garden art, but it can also include other beautiful items that serve a more functional purpose like outdoor rugs, bird baths, ceiling fans, and planters. Keep that in mind when doing yard work: take every opportunity to beautify your home and property!

Here are a few products to consider for your backyard:
