Another outdoor decorating idea to improve your home's curb appeal is landscaping. Choose your plants carefully and they'll reward you by thriving with very little care. Add different textures, heights and colors. Trees also provide shade and are eco-friendly by cooling your home and decreasing energy costs. Make a statement with colorful flowers. They make beautiful accents and can direct the eye to the front door.
One of my favorite outdoor decor pieces is bamboo water spouts. A beutifuly designed Japanese bamboo water fountain like a Shishi Odoshi (Deer Scarer) bamboo fountain creates zen-like back yard. A perfect compliment to a Shishi Odoshi fountain is a tea stand and fragrant Asian herbs.
If you have a deck or patio, there would be a great assortment of outdoor deck lights to enhance this area. Even the grill could use the outdoor bar-b-que light. One which would clip on to any work station of the grill or you might want one of the outdoor floor lamps. The patio furniture could make use of the umbrella's with the outdoor string lighting or the outdoor lighting designed to fit any umbrella's post. The use of outdoor garden lighting, outdoor post lights could be used to bring the sense of warmth and security to your property.
