Garden decor comes in all shapes and sizes, but all are intended to add a special interest to the garden. While there are plenty of attractive items you can buy at the garden center it is often more personal and fun to create something yourself. And what better material to use than stone which you may well have in the garden? These eight ideas come from an article by Kathy Woodard which I found on The Garden Glove website.

Its a trendy and modern way to re-purpose in the garden, and its so creative!
