Beautify your lawn with rustic Amish décor

by Tom Grimes

Your lawn says a lot about you. It is where passersby draw their first impression of you and your home, and as such, great care should be taken to ensure it is well-maintained and attractive. If you are looking for that little extra something that will truly catch the eye, consider an Amish lawn accessory.

An old-fashioned Goat Wagon will sit elegantly on your lawn. These wagons are reproductions of early German construction, using mortise and tenon joinery for strength and durability. They are quite handsome, too. Made from solid wood, they will match the rustic charm of the outdoors. In the autumn, fill them with straw and a pumpkin and watch people on the street stop to admire your work.

For something a bit different, consider a vintage whiskey fountain. Weathered through years of storing Southern whiskey, these pieces are fully functional should you decide to store beverages in the winter. With one of these in your yard, you'll be sure to barrel over curious onlookers with your tasteful Amish sensibilities.
