Spruce up your Lawn and Garden with a Decorative Windmill

A well manicured lawn along with flowers and bushes are one way to spruce up your lawn but so are lawn decorations. And a very popular one these days are decorative windmills. Whether you want to create a specific style to your yard, change things up a bit or just enhance what you already have, these windmills are the perfect tool to so just that.


Sizes usually range from 4 feet to 30 feet and prices can vary from 100 dollars to the thousands.

It all depends on what look you are going for in your yard. A decorative windmill does not pump water. They are meant only for viewing and adding a vocal point in your yard.  They are perfect if you are trying to create a certain focal point in your lawn and the spinning fan blades can sometimes scare away animals from your vegetable garden.


Determining what size is right for your lawn or garden is the first step. The second is determining where to place it. It is important to consider where the most wind is generated in your lawn or garden. People do enjoy seeing the wind blowing and turning the windmill fan blades.  Proper placement will not only bring lots of compliments, but it can also serve as a great conversation piece.


There are many different types of windmills but you may want to consider purchasing an aluminum wind mill with stainless steel nuts and bolts.  They will not rust and never need painting. You also want to make sure that when you assemble your windmill that it is properly anchored.


So if you are looking to spruce up your lawn and garden a decorative windmill may be right for you. Just be sure to do a little research regarding the different types and sizes and scope out the perfect spot in your yard.
