#1 Colorful Urn Water Features
A water feature is a clever way to add color and atmosphere to your garden. Bubbling water can be so relaxing, and it’s simple to find a few colorful urns to create a fantastic display. Just make sure to add a few river rocks around them to aid in drainage.
#2 Recycled Tin Can Planters
A cheap way to add color is to recycle old soup cans or coffee cans. You can paint the cans to suit your style. Drill some holes for drainage in the bottom and add some colorful plants, like the geraniums above, and you’ve got a great, colorful display.
#3 Colorful Sectional Cushions and Throw Pillows
If you have space, try adding a colorful outdoor seating option. Shown here is a curved pair of sectionals covered in bright blue cushions and a rainbow of accent pillows. The accents pick up color from each of the plants surrounding the seating area.
#4 Craft a Cute Rock Caterpillar
If you have kids who you’d like to embrace, try creating one of these adorable rock frogs. You just need glue, paint, a couple of sticks, and some rocks to get started on your own “garden protector.”
#5 Hang a Cozy Hammock
For those who like to relax, add a bright hammock to your patio or between a few sturdy trees in your yard. It’s a perfect place for napping or sunning on a beautiful day.
#6 Add More Colorful Plants and Flowers to Your Existing Display
The most obvious way to add color to your existing garden is to simply plant more varieties of flowers!
#7 Add or Craft Your Own Decorative Stepping Stones
Placing a few decorative stepping stones throughout the garden can add a sense of unity to your different displays. Try making your own out of broken pieces of china, or painting a concrete stepping stone to fit your desire.
#8 Mosaic Solar Stake Lights
A small, subtle way to add color to your garden is to line the pathways with small solar lights, like these mosaic lights. Solar lights are a great pick to save on energy costs and stay green.
#9 Build a Display of Bright Birdhouses
A cluster of bold, brightly painted birdhouses can be both a fantastic display and a great craft to do with your kids. Find different designs and group them together amongst your flowers or trees. Or, you can hang them on a tall privacy fence to dress it up.
#10 Painted Concrete Statuary
Without the paint, these concrete snail shells wouldn’t be nearly as cute. And although snails are not usually welcome in a garden, these brightly colored statues dress up an otherwise neutral water feature.
