The Backyard Gardeners
Gardening for Fun!





Y'Art Gallery

While plants, shrubs and trees provide the structure, shape and color of the garden, yard art or y'art adds the "bling" that makes the garden shine year round. The Backyard Gardeners create unique and individual pieces of art to display in your garden.  Handcrafted by the members, each is different and adds just the right amount of sparkle to your gardens.  Glass pieces are used to create topiaries, hanging topiaries, hummingbird feeders and bird and butterfly baths that can be used indoor or outdoors. Gazing balls covered with glass beads are interesting and artistic in your landscape.  They also remove the concern about the fragility of other gazing balls-they are heavy, tough and essentially hurricane proof!  In addition to the glass art, The Backyard Gardeners create concrete leaf castings of a variety of types of leaves.  Coming in sizes that vary from the size of a playing card to ones that can be used as side tables, these pieces of art are unusual and beautiful.  TBG members also create hanging wire creations that adorn your trees, patios and decks; bird feeders made from teapots and teacups; and concrete garden signs. Proceeds from the sale of Y'art support the group's community education programming.
