4. Gnome Statues

Trends in statuary come and go. Pink flamingoes used to be the rage; they're still used, but now make a counter-statement ("I'm so chic, I can even get away with displaying pink flamingoes!"). The hot item now is the gnome. Perhaps their popularity is due to their evocation of the beloved fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. Displaying a gnome is a quick way to inject Old-World charm and playful fantasy into your yard. Excellent gift idea for friends and relatives with an imagination.

5. Wishing Wells for Lawn and Garden Decor

Wishing wells fit nicely into the cottage landscape style. Picture a yard marked off by a white picket fence and boasting a profusion of colorful perennial flowers. Wouldn't a rustic wishing well look nice, situated in the middle of such enchanting surroundings? But wishing wells complement other styles, as well. They're helpful in establishing focal points. Many homeowners use them as planters and, when bedecked by vines, they seem as firmly rooted in the landscape as revered old trees.
