Garden Accessories in Classic Black
Garden accessories are a nice addition to the landscape, but many times they start to look cluttered. Although some people can bring together various materials, colors and finishes and have them look good together, I'm not so confident in my ability to pull that off. So I'm sticking with basic black.
The fountain and birdbath are from the same collection and both sit in the backyard.
This combo on the back patio looked OK in the spring . . .
. . . and better in the summer with the addition of a chair and a backdrop of filled out plants.
The front porch sports a bench in the same style as the chairs in the backyard.
And the side yard includes black metal trellises that tie it in with the rest. Since each side of the yard has a different plant palette and color scheme, the similar styles of the accessories are helpful in unifying all the parts.
