The Lovely Sounds of Garden Wind Chimes
If you are a gardener and enjoy the sound of chimes, garden wind chimes may be perfect for you. Or, if you like to sit outside to look at your beautiful flowers and plants, garden wind chimes may be the missing link to your total relaxation. Garden wind chimes are a wonderful accessory for the outdoors, and they promise to be a soothing musical interlude for your garden and lawn labors.
Any wind chime can be used in the garden, but recommended garden wind chimes are made from more durable products, like a bamboo wind chime, copper wind chime, pewter wind chime and brass wind chime, in case of storms or bad weather. It is also recommended that you bring your garden wind chime inside when it may storm or if you are leaving on vacation.
You can turn any creatively-designed chimes into a garden wind chime, including a frog, a hummingbird, a cat, a cardinal, a butterfly or a ladybug. A basic wind chime also sounds just as beautiful!
To hang garden wind chimes, use a nearby tree to hang a hook from. There are special stained glass hooks available. One style will hook over a tree branch. Another style that works well hangs vertically and has a metal hook on the top for tying a string around it and the tree branch, and the bottom has another hook to hang the garden wind chimes from. If you don't have a nearby tree, use a potting shed or another building to use a regular wind chime hanger.
Garden wind chimes make an easy-to-install and fulfilling accessory for your garden. Try one for yourself!
