Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. In this section we're going to talk about how to make your garden feel more welcoming. Garden art is an important factor to your garden it's what shows up in the winter when all your plants are dorment and it's something that really accents your plants in they are in bloom. When there are many different types of art that you can collect for your garden, there are many different cement statues that you can purchase that can reflect your personality or your own experiences. I love Buda heads and I love all different types of art from the Orient just because I spent time as an exchange student in Japan and it reminds me of the time when I went to the top of the buda, I just love them. A lot of times because they are cement they are really not expensive and they'll hold up for years. So a lot of times you'll find art that you got in your closet that you collected over the years in your travels. Just set them out in your yard and you'll be amazed how much it will add to your yard. Stepping stones for me are very welcome cause they invite you to the garden although I usually don't step on them. But they are just beautiful and you can find all different types. This one has a celtic cross on it. Those who plant the seeds of kindness harvest a bounty of love. What is more welcoming than that I find that when I'm gardening to and you are kind of rushed and it's just a way to calm down. Just reading that reminds me why I do the things that I do and I think that is what the garden does for you in your life. It puts you back down into earth and it makes you appreciated. So we have our garden art and we have our water features the best way that we can showcase them is with lighting.
