How The Weather Affects Garden Decorations
Areas with a lot of rain and acidity levels corrode materials installed on the roads; heavy snowfall accumulates easily, and can cause mechanical pressure on equipment; warming and cold temperatures can cause decorations to contract, resulting in cracks over time; strong winds can blow off decorations in open areas. This is especially true during a strong windstorm. So considering so many weather factors, what are the best weatherproof garden decorations for your garden?
3 decorations can help your garden
- Solar garden lights
These beautiful lamps have a reflected light coming off the glass lenses- making them better for areas with less light. The metal is a good conductor for electricity, resulting in brighter lights. Additionally, if you install a solar panel, the output of these lights become even more bright and attractive. At the same time, select the material of glass and metal lights can effectively withstand bad weather. There are lots of solar garden lights for you to choose but I recommend solar pathway lights the most.Because solar garden lights can successfully survive bad weather in addition to giving a different accent to your garden, its light spots are usually very attractive. But as mentioned above, remember to choose metal material, if it is plastic or other material solar lights may not be able to resist bad weather.
- Garden Wind Spinners
Garden wind spinners are durable, good for children. They’re made of nylon, which makes them resistant to abrasion. Nylon is easy to clean and tough, retaining its color over many years. Polyurethane can waterproof it completely if brushed on. Nylon wind spinners are a popular outdoors decoration because of the memories they conjure for people and will adds eye-catching color, movement, whimsey, and charm to our garden.
- Statues for outdoors
A life-like statue, such as a pair of bunny rabbits or a woodpecker can be placed in your garden. Life-like statues make you feel like you have an avian or terrestrial animal that is not normally present on your property.
Durable and heat resistant, resins are a great material for sculptures or art installations that will be in the elements. Epoxy resin is one such resin which doesn’t experience structural deterioration even when exposed to freezing weather.
Decorating your garden often comes with challenges, like degradation, repairs and escalating costs. Yet there are solutions that can be implemented to avoid these problems. Outdoor lights can be made more durable with an epoxy coating or polyurethane. Putting decorative items of nylon or acrylic will help weatherize them against the wind, rain, and snow. I hope everyone can find the right garden decoration.
