Lawn Ornaments That Should Stay in Storage

Flowers blossoming, children playing, and families getting together for barbecues are just a few of the wonderful things happening in yards this time of year. But you might have noticed something else happening in yards too. Something that's a little cringe-worthy or maybe even a little creepy: crazy lawn ornaments are coming out of hiding.

Maybe you've spotted a few evil-eyed gnomes on your way to work or noticed a fire-breathing dragon made of concrete while walking your dog. You might think to yourself – "Why?" – but don't bother. Strange lawn ornaments just happen. If your neighbourhood or street is afflicted by these inanimate objects, do not fear. No matter how wacky they are, we'd bet they aren't as crazy as the ones featured in our list. If they are, you might want to subtly suggest a new place for these unique pieces to haunt: a CubeSmart storage unit.

  • I think that some of these great looking gnomes would look wonderful when it comes to unique gardens. There is something that really just brings a person feel when there are these kind of gnomes. I would love to be able to have this in my garden. Thank you for sharing great ideas. http://www.mamasmink.com/default.asp?dept_id=30110

  • Some of this stuff is actually quite cute and while the rest should stay in storage, they wouldn’t be too out of place if they were decorations for a the Halloween season!
