THE MOST NOTICED
ORNAMENTS IN A GARDEN ARE: BIRD BATHS, BIRD FEEDERS, FOUNTAINS, CHIMES, BIRD HOUSES, SUN DIALS, HUMAN OR ANIMAL FIGURINES AND WA MASKS.
Bird house: Birds have different physical and behavioral needs. A bird house is the most versatile as it is the most adaptable. When you’re constructing your little bath, keep in mind accessibility and ease of maintenance. The roof of the bird house should be slanted to allow rainwater to drain. And the direction should depend on the direction of the wind. The best option is to place your bird house near a tree or bush, away from prevailing wind.
Figurines: select figurines to add meaning and highlight your garden’s theme and bring a new look to your landscape design. A sitting rabbit, crawling snake, deer, swans, turtles and a number of aquatic figurines not only beautifies the garden design but also revives the natural instinct within the layout.
Sundial: To set up your sundial correctly you need to know both the longitude and latitude of its location. The gnomon should be set the angles in degrees which is equal to the latitude of your location. The sundial can then be fixed with the gnomon pointing to the pole star. The time indicated by the sun wills vary with the location of the dial.
