Which Stone Garden Sculpture Looks Best in Your Backyard?

Madame & Monsieur EscargotWhen it's time to decorate the garden with backyard decor, we sometimes realize that it's also time to buy a new garden statue or two. That realization might come from noticing that the backyard looks rather empty with just one or two sculptures, that the statues currently on display in the garden look old and worn, or that the backyard would look better with a new decorating theme. However, once you realize that the garden is in need of new statuary, you then have to pick out the best statuary for the yard.

The easiest way to find the best animal yard sculpture, fountain, or other garden statue is to browse the Design Toscano site. There are literally hundreds of unique garden statues that are arranged in several distinct categories, and an easy to use search function. For example, if the backyard could use an animal statue for the side of the pool, check out our collection of wild animal statues. The Baby Fur Seal Statue is a nice option as is the brightly colored Madame & Monsieur Escargot, Enormous Garden Snail Statue Set.

If the backyard trees could use a bit of decor, you might want to decorate them with striking greenmen sculptures like Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture or even "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue!

However, if a classic garden statue would look best, we have a large selection of classic statuary to choose from including a large sculpture of Thalia, Muse of the Garden.

Unique Statues for Garden and Gothic Décor for the Home

Zen, Garden GnomeIt's easy to find decor for the home and garden but it's not so easy to find unique, high quality items for low prices. Well, not so easy unless you already know where to shop for them. You won't find detailed, beautiful animal garden statues, the best selection of stone garden angels, nor unique objets d'art for the home at the nearest big box store. You might find a few nice items after scouring stores for hours but even then, they are going to cost more than you probably want to pay. The easiest place to shop for high quality decor is at Design Toscano simply because we have a huge selection of unique, high quality items for great prices.

For example, if you feel like buying a new garden gnome but would much rather have a gnome that stands out from the crowd, you just might like the cute "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue. Although this gnome would rather meditate than work in the garden, he hasn't relinquished his white beard, pointed red hat, and other typical gnome attire. Complement his search for higher consciousness with the "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue.

As for interior decor, you will find hundreds of exquisite and stunning items in our Basil Street Gallery as well as such high quality Gothic-themed decor as the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table and the Chateau St. Roche Sculptural Wall Mirror.

Saturday is a Perfect Day to Decorate the Garden with Sculptures for Outside

Zairen, the ZebraToday is Saturday and many of us dedicate much of this day to the garden. After a long week of work, the garden is a welcome, relaxing place for rejuvenation, especially now that the warm weather has come back to town. How nice to sit out back on a favorite bench to read a good book, sip on a cold drink, or just watch the birds come to the feeder. However, most of us also have to spend some of that time trimming plants, taking care of vegetables, and just decorating the garden. That can be hard work at times but it always pays off and is usually much more relaxing than working at the office.

You will know when the backyard needs a new statue if one or more of the other statues start to look "old" or if the garden looks sort of empty. When that happens, the garden will probably look much better with a new statue or two. The best statue for the garden depends on your likes and how you feel like decorating it. That new sculpture might end up being something along the lines of a functional religious statue like the Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis Sculpture, or perhaps a beautiful animal yard statue like Zairen, the Zebra.

A quality stone garden angel can add a dramatic, classic look and we also have striking collection of greenmen sculptures to put a face on your favorite Maple, Oak, or Basswood.

The Beauty of Big Animal Outdoor Statues

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe StatueThe animal yard statue comes in many shapes and sizes. It can take the form of a small, cute sculpture of a pig, be displayed as a captivating sculpture of a stalking panther, or be a huge, life-sized sculpture of a wild animal. The grand-scale animal statues in our collection are some of the most impressive statues you will ever see and are a wonderful addition to any backyard.

They also act as great decor for a business, especially restaurants and the service industry. The Giant Male Silverback Gorilla Statue is even bigger than the Lowland and Mountain Gorillas that frequent the jungles of Africa. This highly detailed statue shows the same characteristics as the real animal except that it has a hand large enough to be used as a seat. It will also act as a big, beautiful conversation piece no matter where it is put on display.

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue is a spectacular sculpture that reaches a height of close to eight feet. The long legs, very long neck, and beautiful reticulated pattern are closely modeled after the actual giant herbivores that roam the savannahs of Africa. Put this majestic animal sculpture in the garden or a place of business and guests will be talking about it for years.

Three Reasons to Put Gargoyle Figurines in the Garden

Florentine GargoyleWe all have our favorite garden statuary items. Some of us put the focus on garden fairies because we love their blend of detailed beauty, nature, and magic. Others stick to replicas of stunning antique sculptures, and some people prefer to decorate the yard with an animal yard statue or two. However, no matter what you might prefer in terms of statues or decorating themes, a gargoyle statue will make the backyard look better. The following are three reasons why this is the case:

  • Gargoyles are in a class of their own: Created to intimidate evil spirits and frighten Medieval peasants, gargoyles rank among the more unique of sculptures. Put something like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue on display and you will have the most unique backyard on the block.

 

  • Gargoyles are conversation pieces: Unique statuary is always going to spark conversation, and gargoyles are no exception. Not only will the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue protect the garden, but it will also entertain guests and be the talk of your summer party guests.

Happy Mother’s Day from All of Us at Design Toscano

Frances the Flower GirlHappy Mother's Day! We hope that this special day is a good one for both mothers and their families no matter where they may live. Since May is such a beautiful month, we also hope that the weather is nice enough to enjoy the beauty of a garden, park, and the outdoors. Perhaps Mom will receive one of our resin garden statues as a gift. The lovely "Frances, the Flower Girl" Statue is a fine gift to receive and give. Although this child statue looks lovely enough on its own, it can also be used to showcase fresh flower cuttings or an ornamental plant. Frances looks even better when complemented with the Fanny & Frank Farmer Garden Statues.

If Mom happens to like birds and you have yet to give her a garden statue, she will love the Great White Egret Statue. This animal yard statue is crafted with fine details that make it look just like the actual elegant egrets that wade in the waters of coastal marshes, southern bayous, and other wetlands. Pair this beautiful animal sculpture with the hilarious "Delightful Dancing Ducks" Welcome Sign to put a smile on the face of Mom, or to give your own garden a bit of summer cheer.

Statues for Garden Can Be Anything from Fountains and Angels, to Animals and Urns

Iggy the IguanaThis is garden decorating season and while some of us are veterans at finding the best animal yard statue for our backyards, other people are just getting started with a new garden. They may have just moved into a house with green space, or recently decided to decorate the backyard. Either way, getting started with garden decor can be as frustrating as it is rewarding. Much of that frustration comes from looking for garden decor in places that have very limited collections of low quality items. However, shop for garden decor at Design Toscano and those frustrations will be eliminated because we only deal in beautiful, unique, and high quality items.

We also have a huge variety of decorations for the garden that go far beyond a few angel and gnome statues. For example, if the backyard could use a fountain, we have a big selection of beautiful outdoor garden water fountains. The L'Acqua di Vita Sculptural Fountain is one of several stunning fountains in our collection and looks even better when complemented with a classic urn or two.

Folks new to garden decorating might also be surprised by the number and quality of our animal garden statues. Our collection includes everything from highly realistic items like Iggy the Iguana Statue to such dynamic, fun decor as the Snapping Swamp Gator Statue.

A Stone Garden Sculpture for a Unique Backyard

Blushing Babel, The Bashful DragonUnique garden statuary is needed for a unique backyard. An average, everyday sculpture just won't do for gardens that are decorated with carefully sculpted Bonsai vegetation, that make use of an exquisite Japanese rock garden, or have greenmen statues on some of the trees. The same can be said for backyards that already make use of our beautiful animal garden statues or one of our classic Bigfoot statues. Such backyards look best with statues that are both enchanting and unique, and the best place to find them is at the Design Toscano site.

The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue adds an intriguing Medieval touch to the garden. Put this lawn swimming dragon next to one of your fountains or on a stone garden wall for full effect. It can be complemented with any number of equally fantastic resin garden statues, including such unique sculptures as Apex, the Winged Dragon and "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue.

The "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue is a one of a kind animal yard statue that will put a smile on your face every day of the week. This fun frog is just about guaranteed to be a topic of conversation at all of your summer garden parties and looks even better when paired with the exotic "Jungle Forest Tree Frog" Statue.

Give the Backyard a Unique Down Under Look with Australian Animal Garden Statues

Kouta, The Climbing Koala SculptureThe garden decorating season is here and most of us mark this time of the year by planting vegetables and flowers in the backyard and shopping for new resin garden statues. We all want to find the best deals on garden statuary and make use of decor that lends a unique look to the backyard but this can be a challenge when you already have a good selection of statues to choose from. This year, instead of buying a new stone garden angel, you may want to consider statues of Australian animals. There are few places on the planet that have as many unique and signature animals as Down Under and any of those creatures will give your garden a unique, exotic look.

Instead of putting a statue of a mischievous squirrel in your favorite backyard tree, decorate it with Kouta, the Climbing Koala. This realistic animal garden statue is nearly as adorable as the actual Eucalyptus munching animals that add charm to Australian woodlands. It can also be displayed on a garden wall.

Complement Kouta the Koala with another wild, signature animal of the Australian outback, the kangaroo. The Kangaroo and Joey Australian Outback Statue is as large as the actual hoppers that spring across the Australian landscape. Put this life-like beauty in the garden and neighbors will wonder where you managed to find such an amazing pet.

The Top Two Places to Put a Tiger Sculpture on Display

Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger SculptureTigers are one of the most fantastic creatures on the planet. These charismatic predators mesmerize with a blend of beauty, power, and grace. Their beautiful orange and white, black-striped coat helps keep them hidden as they stalk the tall jungle grass, and they use sheer, raw power to take down animal prey as large as Water Buffalo. For many people, these big cats are both respected and revered, and act as inspiration for a variety of art forms, including the stone garden sculpture.

Although a quality statue of a Bengal Tiger will make a statement no matter where it is put on display, it takes on a truly regal appearance in the following situations:

  • Just past the entrance to the garden: A tiger statue is a spectacular means of welcoming any garden guest but it will have even more impact when placed 20 or 50 feet past the entrance. Place a cherub or some other, more easy-going statuary at the entrance to the backyard to get their guard down,and then confront guests with a big, spectacular tiger statue like the Grand-Scale Wildlife Animal Collection: Bengal Tiger Statue.
  • A tiger to welcome guests to a business: The other best place to put a tiger on display is at or near the entrance to a business. If the reception area is large enough or has some green space, the same big Bengal Tiger from the backyard can be put on display. For smaller areas of green space, try the Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger Sculpture or a super cute Bengal Tiger cub.

Dinosaurs Are Garden Statuary for Children of all Ages

Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur StatueWe have a wide variety of animal garden statues in our collection. There are cute statues of bunnies and dancing geese, highly detailed sculptures of majestic wild animals, and more than a few mythical creatures. However, we also carry beautiful, realistic statues of spectacular beasts that went extinct millions of years ago. These incredible animals are the dinosaurs and although they haven't been around for more than 60 million years, they are as popular as ever, especially among kids of all ages.

Most kids love dinosaurs and as adults, many of us can't help but be fascinated by those ancient, extinct behemoths. This is why realistic sculptures of dinosaurs are an excellent choice for decor in family-oriented hotels, restaurants, and other businesses. Put an incredible Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statue at the entrance of a business and it will become the talk of the town. Kids will literally come running to the doors and customers will keep flocking back to get a look at this very realistic dinosaur.

If our Jurassic sized dinosaurs are a bit too big for a home or business, we also have smaller, high quality dinosaur statues like the Brachiosaurus Dinosaur Statue and the fun Pterodactyl Statue. These smaller dinosaur statues will entertain customers and guests of all ages whether displayed in the backyard or in the foyer of a place of business.

Some Design Toscano Décor Is for The Birds

Summer's Splash Sculptural BirdbathA garden doesn't just act as a place for relaxation and maintaining flowerbeds. It's also invaluable green space in increasingly urbanized surroundings. In addition to providing us with a tree or two for hanging a swing and showing unique greenmen decor, the green space in the garden can be home to several types of birds. Sparrows, grosbeaks, goldfinches, cardinals, and chickadees are regular garden visitors in many parts of North America. It can be fun to watch them, listen to their songs, and see them interact with choice resin garden statues.

One of the easiest and most common types of bird-friendly statue is the bird bath. Birds love to bathe in small pools of water, especially on hot summer days and they can add just the right touch of natural, animated decor to such fine garden statues as the Summer's Splash Sculptural Birdbath. Put this beautiful decor in the backyard and you will be surprised at the species of birds that show up. To see the most birds, place it about five feet from vegetation so they have a safe place to fly to if they feel threatened.

Providing birds with a place to live will also bring House Wrens, sparrows, and swallows to the backyard. Get the "Laughing Greenman" Birdhouse Statue to watch birds raise their young in the most interesting birdhouse on the block!

Find Fantastic Animal-Themed Décor in the Basil Street Gallery

Heads Above Giraffe Floor LampInspiration for decor comes from many sources. The ancient Egyptians based much of their art on their belief system, daily royal life, and the wildlife that occurred in the valley of the Nile. Sculptures of Greek deities were also based on a belief system while Greek statues of fauns and other mythical creatures came from their legends and folktales. Despite the passing of hundreds of years, Egyptian art continues to be popular in many parts of the world, and many a garden boasts a statue of a Greek deity.

Another source of inspiration that has endured since people made paintings on cave walls is that of the animal. The variety and beauty of life on this planet has given rise to countless paintings, sculptures, and wall decor. Several beautiful animal-inspired works are featured in our Basil Street collection, including the realistic Leopards Lair Sculptural Wall Frieze. This unique sculptural wall decor mirrors the behavior of an African Leopard at rest.

Another animal that has inspired many a work of art is the Indian Peafowl. Glad in shimmering blue, green, and bronze, it almost looks too extravagant to be real. Our Peacocks in Paradise Statue captures the incredible beauty of these amazing birds and is a regal addition to home and business.

At Basil Street, we also have animal-themed decor that blends lighting with animal sculptures. The Heads Above Giraffe Floor Lamp is one such unique decor item.
