On one of our daily walks through our Manhattan Beach neighborhood, Klunkers and I nearly passed by this amazing trick that cleverly rid an otherwise lovely planter from the dreaded eye sore of sprinkler controls. At first, I saw this lady’s angelic head as just another artfully crafted lawn ornament. Being just steps from the beach, this looked to me like a mermaid who had come to shore to nap a while amongst the succulents.
As we stepped closer to admire the “mermaid”, I was more interested in how beautiful she was and how this sculpture added sophistication to the landscaping. I thought I would capture her image for inspiration in hopes that I might come across something as stunning somewhere down the line for my home. And then…surprise!
She was actually a disguise for this ugly sprinkler control system! Brilliant! I never even saw the pipes and wires from the street, allowing this family’s curb appeal to stay nicely in tact. I knew I had to share this wonderful tip with you all, so after snapping of these photos, I mentally “high fived” the owners. I found interesting lawn sculptures here that range from whimsical to artful.
Do you have any thoughts about this DIY curb appeal tip?
