Scare Your Neighbors with Garden Decorations!

shiny ball gone
replacement décor follows
yard to scare neighbors?

An unknown mischievous brat darling neighborhood cherub smashed the gazing ball I put in my front flowerbeds for height. I did some shopping around Design Toscano for a replacement garden decoration. I didn’t find a replacement for my gazing ball, but I did find some garden décor that would scare my neighbors.
Nothing says, “Welcome to My Home” like a two foot tall Garden Yeti!

Need something to fill in that 2 1/2 foot bald spot in your garden bed while you are waiting for that ground cover grow? Try this happy little Raptor skeleton. Look, he’s smiling…!


Maybe digging a moat around my flowerbed would save my garden from
bratty rude
mischievous children. In that case, my moat would need a dragon.

Need to add some height to your garden? Try these on for size.
A 2 foot tall T-rex.

238 pounds of brontosaurus glory.

A 22 pound of resin Wooly Mammoth.

I’d only add this alien guy if he comes with his own ray gun and shoots trespassers.

Nothing SAYS GET OFF MY LAWN better than a 2 ½ foot tall gargoyle named Scatheus.


If you decide to scare your neighbors with any of this garden art (?), then you should probably add this sign too.

I vote for the gargoyle! So sorry. Who knows why people do things like this.

Haha. I like the 3pc dragon. Sorry you have to put up with having vandals as neighbors.

I LOVE the yeti. Get the yeti. And then get an electric fence.

In Florida my Mom has a mirror with a big alligator on it. She has a rock and tropical garden down there. The alligator looks very real, especially on the water/ mirror.

Enjoyed this post. Hope that brat is scared out of your garden.

What about a killer guard cat, I do this for our garden pretty effectively. I wait for the kids on the way to school, roll on my back so they lean over to tickle my belly ... then I bite them. FAZ
