But have you thought about the impact a glass piece might bring to your back yard space? Glass is often lightweight, easy to install and available in a myriad of colors at varying prices points. Glass offers something for every taste and budget. It is an easy to care for item that won’t rust or need refinishing.

While not new, it is a craft that continues to evolve with some amazing pieces coming from contemporary artists, such as Dale Chihuly And while you might see fused glass being used much more frequently in interior home designs, it is also a great addition to outdoor spaces.

The glow of the glass and soft night sky create a stunning, magical world. Another area to consider using fused glass is creating a handmade stepping stone. (There are many websites with instructions on how to create your own.) This could be an enjoyable weekend project to do with your family and a unique keepsake.

Not only attracting remarkable birds but also creating a charming space for them to enjoy. Fused glass is versatile and can be used to create garden sculptures, bird baths, water features and privacy screens. Used in conjunction with sprinklers and wind chimes, you can create a soothing relaxing space to enjoy all season long.
