Hanging plants can really tie a backyard together and let you feature beautiful flowers near eye level. Using a shepherd’s hook to dangle them from makes displaying the plants simple and easy. Whether you’re keeping them in the front of your house, backyard, near the pool or next to the deck, there are shepherd’s hooks that are the size you need. You can hang a bird house or feeder, thermometer, or clock from the hooks and they’ll stay firmly in place, adding decorum to your setting. Since there are many different kinds, we’ve selected three to tell you about to help accent your yard.
