Garden Gnomes

Garden gnomes can be used to add a bit of fun and whimsy to your garden. They can be especially fun for children. Garden gnomes originated in Germany in the 1800s and are considered to be good luck.

The traditional garden gnome has brightly coloured clothes and a pointed red hat. While this might look cute in the store, a family of garden gnomes in your yard can end up looking tacky.

Use these ornaments sparingly and try to blend them into your garden. A gnome or two peeking out from amongst brightly coloured flowers can be cute, but 20 scattered about your yard is overwhelming.
