Wind Chimes - Enhance Your Outdoor Decor

by Guest on Jan 23, 2010

To beautify the front of your home and enhance your landscape decor, why not use the benefits of beautiful sounding wind chimes? They come in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and price ranges, and are sure to be the perfect compliment, regardless of the design.

Most homes are especially flattered by such yard features as trellises, decorative mailboxes, birdhouses; unique garden planters and wind chime designs that add a distinct country home décor charm.

Outdoor lawn décor can be enhanced by a more natural looking landscape, one harmonious with the eco-system. Use large garden planters of native plants or interesting semi-succulent flora, strategically placed in a section of the yard made up of natural stones, bark chips, mulch, or native ground cover.

Your garden is the perfect place to hang wind chimes. They catch the breeze and provide a relaxing counterpoint to the day. While you are gardening, you can enjoy their music, and when the work is done, you can relax to their gentle chime.

Wind chimes in the garden help create a peaceful place to rest and enjoy the outdoors. Your garden is a sensual experience. You see the greenery and the color of flowers and vegetables. You taste the sweetness of the produce. You smell the soft scent of flowers and herbs. You feel the cool breeze or the warm sun. You hear the sound of a water fountain and the tinkle of wind chimes. You are in a place of peace.

Wind chimes can also create a visual accent in your garden. Bamboo or wood windchimes add to the natural feel of the garden. Metal wind chimes catch and reflect the light. Some wind chimes have glass or crystal components that enhance their beauty. Some are large enough to be sculptural elements in the garden.

There are many ways to incorporate wind chimes into your garden, both visually and musically. There are many kinds of wind chimes to choose from. You can be very intentional about choosing and placing wind chimes to take advantage of feng shui411. Or you can place them wherever they are pleasing to you. However you choose to do it, wind chimes bring charm and peace to any garden, and enhance your outdoor living.

This type landscape design is not only unique and attractive, but low-maintenance; an added bonus that busy homeowners will surely appreciate.

Wind chimes can be used as an enhancement and to create a certain mood or compliment design in a variety of ways. A set of small diameter pipe wind chimes suspended from an elaborate hanger by the front door can replace a doorbell or door knocker during mild weather months. Such an arrangement could enhance an otherwise plain porch. A natural wood or lattice or fan trellis, embraced by flowering vines, could complete the quaint scene. That way, when the chimes “sing” you know you have a visitor.

Use decorating ideas that compliment the front of your yard, beautifying what you have to work with, instead of competing against it. Finely tuned wind chimes are a sure way to add a relaxing note; complimentary, therapeutic, and feng shui enhancing.
