Some people create a fairy paradise while others are more into gnomes. When it comes to really getting the neighbors exited there are the folks who add a dinosaur or two into their outdoor decor.
Kids love these beasts and they truly are decorative and fun. What's not to love? These giant lawn ornaments won't chase you around the yard, don't bite, and they'll provide a little shade if you want to sit in the shadow of one.
You are only limited by what your imagination can create and this is never more true than when it comes to lawn and garden decor. So throw out any preconceived notions of what the perfectly manicured lawn should look like and start envisioning a pathway leading through a prehistoric green space filled with giant creatures straight out of the long ago past.
It is definitely a non-traditional green space decor but going prehistoric does have its own unique charm. They are a history lesson for young and old alike. For a budding paleontologist it can be the perfect playground.
Brontosaurus, T-Rex, Stegosaurus, or raptors, these Jurassic size lawn ornaments will garner your yard more than a little curious attention. The larger your yard space the more creative you can be.
Rocks, trees, leafy bushes, ponds, flower beds, and the garden area can all be displayed with these beautiful beasts existing there. There are many ways to incorporate a little of the ancient past into your yard area.
It can be a fun humorous touch to add a dinosaur into a more modern yarn landscaping decor. A brontosaurus peeking over the fence or a Brachiosaurus munching out on a decorative tree would be a great location to set one of these ornamental statues. Large size rocks painted white make ideal dinosaur eggs and an extra large egg shouldn't be too difficult to create. You can place it low to the ground or use lighter eggs and place it up high in the branches of a tree.
If you are the type of person who loves to decorate with unique ornamental plants then a Jurassic park theme for your yard would be ideal.
Large or giant size flowering plants such as Hollyhocks, Boltonia, the Giant Lily (otherwise known as
Cardiocrinum Gigantium), Delphinium, Lavender, and the Hibiscus are delightful decorative.
Ornamental grasses such as Switch grass, Japanese Silver Grass, Hakone Grass, Plantain Lily, Feather Reed Grass, Blue Oat Grass, White Sage, and Frost Grass can be used to create a jungle like look.
Ferns are beautiful in a natural garden space. Hosta is one popular variety but there are many to choose from. The Boston, Macho, Korean, and Lady ferns are ones you may want to take a look at also. There are many ornamental plants, flowers, bushes, and trees that will suit a prehistoric theme lawn or garden space. Peek around online or at your local crop store to see what you can discover.
