Animal Garden Sculptures for a Wild, Green Backyard

Shadowed Predator Black PantherWhether big or small, a lot can be done with a garden. Even the smallest of backyards can have space to grow vegetables and display a couple of resin garden statues. Big backyards have the benefit of a lot more space to work with and that also makes it easier to let some corners of the yard "go wild". In other words, we can allocate some parts of the backyard for natural regeneration of grasses, shrubs, or trees to provide habitat for birds and other animals, and punctuate the yard with a bit of natural texture.

Such "wild" spots can, in turn, be highlighted with an animal yard statue or two. Although the Shadowed Predator Black Panther Statue makes a wild and beautiful statement wherever it is put on display, this lurking cat will nearly come to life when placed in the shadows of tall grass and flowering shrubs. Pair this feline with the Call of the Wild: Growling Gray Wolf Statue to put another beautiful predator sculpture in the garden.

The "Climbing Cubs Black Bear Statue" will also look at home in a wild corner of the garden. This fun sculpture captures the curiosity of young bears with fine, realistic details.

Take 20% Off Greenmen, Gargoyles, and Detailed Dragon Statues

Bacchus Wall SculptureStatues for the garden can be more than a cute animal yard statue, or classic sculptures that would look right at home on the grounds of a Victorian estate. Gargoyles, greenman sculptures, and other types of Gothic decor also have their place in a summer garden, and we are pleased that our collection is graced with several of these mysterious statues.

Greenman decor is a wonderful way to give the garden a bit of personality. The Bacchus, God of Wine: Greenman Wall Sculpture makes for fun, classic wall decor, whereas the Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture puts an enchanting face on a favorite tree. These and other greenman decor always make nice additions to backyards that are solely decorated with sculptures.

Gargoyle statues lend a classic, contrasting touch to every type of garden. Although many people categorize gargoyles as Gothic sculptures, they also look right at home in a Victorian garden, or a backyard decorated with cute animal statues. Gargoyles fit in because there are cute and funny statues like The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set, climbing gargoyles like Catgoyle on the Loose!, and powerful, intimidating sculptures like the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount off these, dragon sculptures, and any of our garden statues when purchased by April 17th, 2015.

Unique, New Outdoor Garden Water Fountains at Design Toscano

Pelican's Seashore RoostA fountain is a fantastic addition for any garden. The beautiful combination of art and falling water can put the crowning touch on a fine display of garden decor, and lends a soothing, peaceful look to the backyard. Garden fountains come in many forms and we love them all but today, we would like to showcase a few of the latest additions to our collection.

The "Pelican's Seashore Roost" Sculptural Fountain pays homage to the shore with a combination of a white pelican, weathered pilings, and an old anchor. This unique fountain is the perfect complement to a garden statuary display with a maritime theme, and looks perfect when placed next to the pool.

Fountains can also work well with Gothic decor, especially when the fountain in question features a dragon. "The Viper Dragon" Sculptural Fountain does just that by merit of a sculpted, bat-winged dragon that spits water into a dark cistern. This unique decor also comes with a LED light kit to highlight its mysterious appearance on warm summer nights.

We also have new fountains that fall into the "adorable" category. One such new addition is "The Puppy Pail Pour" Garden Fountain. This lovely fountain blends super cute animal statues with the beauty of falling water for an endearing addition to the yard.

Three Tips for Decorating with Garden Statues

Goddess AuroraFebruary is over and although it might be cold outside, most of us have just one or two months to get our decor ready for a spring garden. Whether you happen to already have a fine collection of garden decor, or are new to decorating the yard, we hope that the following three tips will help:  

  • Don’t settle for average sculptures: Statues that look generic don't really make the garden look special. As opposed to making an exceptional impression on guests, average statues will make them feel like they are walking into an average place. Instead of settling for average, try unique, stand-out sculptures like the Goddess Aurora Statue and beautiful garden fairies like Fiona, the Fairy Sculpture

 

  • Consider animal garden statues: Animal sculptures lend a fun, natural look to any yard. There are also dozens of animal sculptures to choose from, including animal statues to fit every decorating theme. An animal yard statue like the American Mountain Cougar gives the yard a wild, beautiful look.

 

  • Some sculptures are also suitable indoors: When shopping for statues for the yard, pick out some that can also be used inside the home. That way, you will also have fantastic interior decor when the weather turns cold. Such statues also work as wonderful decor for a business.

Give the Garden a Distinguished Look with Outdoor Elephant Statues

Catch of the Day Grand BearGarden statues come in many forms and are suited to many decorating themes. While some people prefer modern decor, others enjoy decorating the backyard with Greek garden statues and other classic sculptures. When it comes to animal garden statues, some folks go for a wild, dramatic look with decor like the Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture, others prefer cute and well known animals like a Billy Goat Statue, and other folks put unique and extraordinary animal statues on display like the "Death Valley Jake, the Jackalope" Statue.

Many of us also like to put animal statues on display that fit in with a classic decorating theme. One such type of sculpture that makes an ideal fit with classic decor is the elephant statue.

Where to Put a Large Garden Gargoyle Statue on Display

Florentine Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are classic decor in a category of their own. Those of us who love to decorate our homes with dragons and other types of Gothic decor also have a strong appreciation for high quality gargoyle figurines. However, many folks who do not generally decorate with Gothic items also have a gargoyle statue or two because these interesting sculptures fit in with a variety of decorating themes. For example, a large, high quality gargoyle like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue adds a nice touch to a backyard with a few Greek garden statues, and Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture can fit in with garden gnomes and cute animal statues.

When purchasing a large gargoyle, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out where it should be put on display. For example, you might want to reserve one side of the backyard for an angel statue, and put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on the opposite side of the yard. Or, Talysus might look best when placed in a dark, shaded corner of the backyard.

Entranceways are another perfect place for gargoyles because these intimidating stone beasts were meant to act as guards and greet certain guests with cold stares. The Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue will look right at home when placed next to the back door, or as a centerpiece item.
