Garden decor, what does it mean? Do sad-looking vegetables and a tree in your garden suffice?
Garden decor for your homeIn a period where people are embracing the exterior of their home, and where we are often glued to the screens of our devices, garden decor is a fun and fulfilling way to ensure that your garden is interactive and stimulating.
This ensures that your garden is not restricted to the limited hours of sun exposure, and that you can optimise the usage of your garden for social events with friends and family. It will likely make your nosey neighbours more envious too, which is a bonus.
Origin of garden decorGarden decor has existed as early as the Ancient Roman period. This was found especially in the excavations of Pompeii. It peaked again in Europe during the Renaissance period in France and Italy, where high art and kitsch interpretations were in their prime. The English took it a step further, adding hermitages and temples to make a statement on status and to allocate an outdoor space for leisure.
What about outside Europe? Let’s not forget in China, Japan and Korea, rock gardens have timelessly been constructed for symbolic meaning. Their intimate gardens were often created by scholars, poets, government officials or soldiers for reflection and escape from the outside world. It was an idealised setting to promote harmony that should exist between man and nature.
