I'm a fan of Yard Art. I think it is amazing when people have the balls to put ridiculous things around their houses. (hice?) I admire the people that can pull it off because, in reality, it is a super tacky thing to do. I think about 99.999% of it misses the mark. But when it is done right, man is it inspiring. Both of these winning homes are on the same street if you can believe it. One has a permanent concrete blue squirrel in the back yard; the other an ephemeral inflatable Easter chicken in the front. Both are quite big. I think that is what makes it so good. Don't sweat the small stuff, and just put one big crazy thing in the yard. It makes it look less like crap is trying to run away from home, and more like a sculpture garden. Very Jeff Koons.
