Seeing a windmill conjures up thoughts of open plains, warm breezes, and corn stalks and sunflowers swaying in those warm country winds. The images are so vivid you can practically inhale and smell the moisture in the air. Windmills themselves are used for generating power, pumping water, and indicating wind direction and speed, but those are certainly not their only purposes. When a large life-sized one is not an option, look for something ornamental, with leaf or spoon-shaped sails for example. Give your garden or lawn a more whimsical or artistic flair with a horizontal windmill found on eBay from reliable sellers. You'll find the classic aermotor style, fabric insects and flowers, LED lighted styles, and even vintage styles. If both form and function interest you, many of them can be converted into an aerating system. Bring the feeling of the wide open plains and farmland charm you've been missing to your yard with your own windmill.
