Put your personal touch on your front porch, patio, backyard and more with outdoor decor accessories
A splashing fountain doesn't just lend an elegant touch to any outdoor space. It also creates a soothing, serene atmosphere with the sound of flowing water. Imagine the relaxing sound of a bubbling brook, transported right to your backyard. Sears has many different styles of fountains so you can choose the one that best matches your outdoor decor. If you love to accessorize with country-style antique decorations, the Garden Oasis Lighted Rock with Wheel fountain is for you. The natural-looking stone face combined with the rustic waterwheel evokes fond memories of days gone by. Those looking for a more modern style will love the clean lines and angles of the Fountain Cellar Sand Stone Cascade. Equipped with lights for nighttime viewing, this contemporary fountain would look right at home among a Japanese-style rock garden arrangement. Paired with a Garden Oasis Lighted Arbor, it creates a look that's classic, yet modern.
Lawn and garden statues are a whimsical way to put your personal touch on an outdoor space without being too labor-intensive. Picking out a statue that suits your sense of fun is easy with Sears' great selection. The classic garden gnome adds a touch of whimsy to any front garden or walk-up path, and Design Toscano has you covered with a charming collection of gnomes in a variety of poses. Animal lovers will love to put a cute Sculptural Gardens rabbit statue in the vegetable garden, while cartoonier animal welcome statues like Goofy and Pluto are available from Disney's Garden collection. And don't forget seasonal statues either, because International Wholesale Gifts has Santa, angel, snowman, pilgrim, turkey and Easter bunny statues to help you ring in every holiday of the year.
The outdoor lighting you choose should be based on what you are trying to accomplish. Harsh, white security lights are designed to light up intruders in a flash, which is very different from the soft, inviting glow of pathway and other decorative lighting. For a good mix of safety and beauty, it's best to install both on your home's exterior. For home security, it's tough to beat a Designer's Edge home motion activated floodlight. This powerful unit mounts high up on an exterior wall and switches on when detecting motion in the vicinity. A more energy efficient manual option is the Reusable Revolution LLC 108 Solar Powered Grount Mount LED, which stores up solar energy during the day to release brilliant white light at night with the flip of a switch. For front porch mood lighting on the other hand, a San Rafael Solar lantern provides soft, energy-efficient light with traditional looks. And for nighttime outdoor entertaining, your guests will be able to stay on the path and off your flower beds with discreet and elegant Westinghouse Stainless Steel Solar Pathway lights.
