When considering lawn and garden decorations we often go toward what we like. That could be the way a fountain flows or the way a frog tilts his head on the paver. But when choosing these items it is important to consider three main things. These three things are style, function, and durability. When you find something that you love check these features. If it has the best of all three features you know you have found the perfect lawn and garden decorations.

Style

Choosing a specific style is very personal. Just like the sense of style that you used when you chose how to decorate the interior of your home, this is the same sense of style you will use to decorate the outside of your home. Style is different for each individual, what I like you may hate and vice versa. You could lean towards the more modern look or even go toward shabby chic. Both ways it should be what speaks to you and ultimately what tells others about the type of person you are. After all our style is the outer reflection of our inner beings right?

Function

Before purchasing lawn and garden decorations it is important to consider the function that you want the items to have. If you are looking for something that allows you to have an outdoor party atmosphere, lots of seating will be needed. Whereas, if it needs to be more family friendly you will definitely want to look into an outdoor swing set, sand box, trampoline, and other children’s materials. Some just want it to be an area they can go to for privacy and relaxation, this should take be taken into account when you choose your lawn and garden decorations. After all you will not get any enjoyment out of these items unless they provide the function you desire.

Durability

The old saying you get what you pay for couldn’t be more accurate with lawn and garden decorations. It is important to remember that these items will be outside exposed to variations in temperature, rain, and freezing. This is where durability comes in. By choosing items that are durable you will extend the life of your lawn and garden decorations immensely. This not only saves you time and money it also allows you to enjoy the same product for an extended amount of time.
