Whether you have a small lawn or a large one, a landscaping mistake you want to avoid is excessive lawn ornamentation. Decorative items can enhance the look of your yard, however, if you overdo it, the decorative pieces will only serve as a distraction from the natural beauty of your landscaping. So to help you decide how much is enough, here are three questions to ask yourself before you set out those lawn ornaments:
1. Why am I putting this here?
2. Will it fit into the context of the overall design?
3. Does it compliment my plants and plant materials?
When decorating your lawn, sometimes less is more. One solid ornament choice can do wonders for your landscaping rather than 10 random distracting pieces.
