What are you planning for outdoor decor this year?

I'm probably going to do the same as last year... container gardens. I'm looking for the pink cotton candy grass this year though. I know for sure I will NOT do another self contained pond with fish. That was a PITA!

  • Mostly just the leaves that have fallen off the trees. :) I can't really do anything with my yard because I am surrounded by trees and the leaves kill everything and the trees block all sunlight. Which works great for electricity costs but not so great for growing things.

  • I love container gardens and hanging baskets on my deck. It's the only way to keep the flippin' deer out of my flowers! I planted some pansies I bought from the scouts outside the grocery store the other day. I am a big fan of wave petunias and sweet potato vine. DH always gets me some big showy begonias for mother's day. Oh and chickens...lots of chickens this year. :)

  • I just have my patio, which is pretty much decorated in a preschooler theme. A porch swing, a kiddie pool, a sandbox and water table, a bike with training wheels and a Dora the Explorer tricycle, bubbles, sidewalk chalk ... I have all the accessories.

  • Hanging baskets, front and back porch. Planters with geraniums. We'll be getting new patio furniture as well.

  • PMS, what kind? I've been drooling over a set of wire furniture with cushions over at Home Depot. Chair, coffee table, glider, and chaise lounge. It's not going to happen this year I suppose, but maybe someday.

  • I have an acre and quarter lot, and only one fruit tree, (Mango) a young one, so this year I want some more fruit trees and a herb garden so I can go pick them when I cook....I have had other fruit trees destroyed by hurricanes....this is why I gave up!

  • We are in the process of selling our home so all I am doing this year is the window boxes on the back deck and containers near the front door.
