Brighten on a Budget An inexpensive way to brighten a dark corner is to hang a mirror that reflects light from sunnier parts of the garden. Here, not only does the looking glass remedy a black hole, but it also makes plants and flowers seem to stretch into an adjacent space.
mirror backdrops...this is a clever idea IF your intention is to watch the birds break their necks. Also take care what direction you prop it in, on a sunny day, you could do more than scorch something.
