Today’s gardener wants to find great ways to add garden art to complete their work. I know. The garden looks great. The Periwinkles are cute. The clump of Boston Fern adds a soft touch to the corner. The Japanese maple in the corner adds a swatch of burgundy. But, we need that one last piece to put your stamp on it. A yard flag with your name is proving to be the perfect touch. Here are 3 garden art ideas from happy gardeners.
Why aren’t there more customized yard flags in America? I’m always amazed when I drive through neighborhoods at the number of cheesy yard flags I see. Does anyone really see those at the home improvement store and say, “Oh Yes, that’s exactly what I’ve been looking for!” A giant butterfly yard flag? I don’t think so. These big box retailers don’t get it. My 12 year old daughter might think it’s cute, but I do not.
