Do you find yourself gazing at houses and lawns more frequently in the summer than you do at other times throughout the year? Have you noticed that the inclusion of decorative, patriotic and military theme flags has become a popular outdoor decorating trend?
No lawn, no problem
If you live in an apartment or a condominium that leaves you without a lawn space, you can still enjoy some of the colorful decor that accompanies the summer season. In even the smallest outdoor space, you can plant some colorful flowers in containers and display them with pride. With the use of brackets, outdoor decorative flags can be attached to a porch or deck rail. Poles are available in various sizes and with some creative thinking, you may be able to blend a flag pole and flag into your small outdoor space.
A flag pole with a flag fluttering in the breeze is considered by some to be the ultimate form of garden art. Patriotic and military flags are an exquisite element in any landscape design. Summer themed flags that feature a beach theme, birds, a picnic scene, flowers or colorful hot air balloons can enliven the appearance of garden space or landscape design. You can add solar lights to the area where you place the flag so that your garden art can be admired after dark.
Hobbies and passions
You can display flags in your garden, at your door, from your roof or in any area of your landscape to let people know what sports team you support or what type of pet you have or adore. You may simply want to place a flag in your landscape design that depicts something that makes you happy such as birds or sunflowers.
