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.

Wall Decor in the Form of a Garden Angel Statue

Brixton Abbey AngelWhen we think of angel sculptures, most of us have classic angel statues in mind. These are the majestic angels that we see in churches, in Italian courtyards, and in many a garden statuary collection. There are many fine angel statues like this but there are also angel sculptures that look like children, that can be used to remember loved ones, and that can be used as wall decor.

The Santa Croce Angel Wall Frieze is one of the more magnificent wall decor angels in our collection. Available in small and large sizes, this replica of an 18th century Italian work of art is a stunning display of angelic beauty. Although some angels stretch their wings, this angel nearly envelopes herself in a pair of highly detailed, huge, feathered appendages. This stand out decor can be hung on the inside of a large garden wall or used to add unique charm to the interior of home and business.

If the garden walls work better with a smaller garden angel, the Brixton Abbey Angel Wall Sculpture is a wonderful, functional piece that is modeled after an antique, Victorian angel statue. The beautiful little angel featured in this sculpture holds a large seashell that can be used as a bird bath, to showcase flower cuttings, or hold potpourri.

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.

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.

A Few Stunning, New Garden Statues

Beautiful Black SwanThese are the days when most of us get back out into the backyard to do a little cleaning, get the garden ready for planting, and contemplate how we are going to decorate it. While looking over the garden statuary collection, we can't help but pick out some of our favorite statues from previous years and think about the ones that we need to replace. Although it can be tough to part with certain garden statues, if they aren't going to fit into a new decorating theme, it's probably better to buy new ones.

One of the best places to look for statues for the backyard is in our selection of new garden statues. This is where we put our newest angels, animal statues, unique gnomes, and other statuary on display. Not only is "Axle Grease, the Biker Gnome" Statue one of our newest gnomes, but he also shows that gnomes can be far more than cute, little creatures with pointed hats.

Our "Beautiful Black Swan" Statue is one of our many new and unique animal statues. This animal yard statue demonstrates the noble mystery of the Black Swan from its "S" shaped neck to the fine details in each and every feather.

Resin Garden Statues to Honor the Memory of Loved Ones

Angels of Alghero Religious StatuesGarden statuary can be used for more than decor. While we do put high quality animal garden sculptures, garden angels, and other classic sculptures into a garden or backyard to help beautify it and give it character, we can also use religious statues for inspiration and paying homage to our belief systems. We can put in outdoor garden water fountains to bring the soothing sound of falling water into the backyard, and the permanence and beauty of sculptures make them perfect for remembering loved ones who have passed away.

The Angel of Grief Monument Statue is a classic piece that was designed by William Wetmore Story in memory of his dearly departed wife. Similar sculptures are seen in cemeteries and gardens to this day because they encapsulate the grief we feel upon losing a loved one. This statue pairs well with the Angels of Alghero Religious Statues and the stunning Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue.

Cast stone memorial garden benches are another excellent means of remembering loved ones with garden decor. We have a variety of cast stone benches in our collection that can be personalized with the name of the dearly departed. The In Our Hearts Forever Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is one such item that reminds us of the love we still feel for the departed with a beautiful phrase.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Enjoy 20% off these sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Buddha Outdoor Statues on Sale

Great Buddha Garden SanctuaryNot all religious statues are depictions of garden angels or sculptures related to Christianity. Several of the religious-themed sculptures in our collection are depictions of the Buddha. When one travels to eastern Asia, sculptures of sitting, standing, and even laughing Buddhas are a common sight in temples, gardens, and parks. The serene look on the Buddha's face compliments an already peaceful garden and seems to blend in with the natural surroundings. For this reason, statues of the Buddha are often placed in grottos and other beautiful natural places.

A Buddha statue can have the same peaceful effect on backyards no matter what their size. The beautiful two and a half foot tall The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue adds a peaceful touch to a backyard when placed by the back door, placed next to a pond, or displayed inside the home.

If the garden would look better with a large Buddha statue, our Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture is a perfect fit. This large, four foot, seated Buddha is modeled after similar Buddha sculptures from Thailand and has the same, very peaceful appearance. For a Buddha with his very own grotto, put the classic Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture in the backyard.

Which Sculptures for Outside Are Suited for a Natural Garden?

Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal SculptureAs our backyards come back to life after the long, cold winter, we can reflect on some different types of gardens. Large estates can host a menagerie of classic garden statuary, animal garden sculptures, and other garden decor. More common, medium-sized gardens can show sculpted hedges, a stone garden angel here and there, and a few other resin garden statues. Small, urban gardens might not have as much space for grand scale statues but do have enough room for a few garden gnomes and potted flowers.

There are also gardens that put the focus on nature. These are the backyards where invasive plants are removed and native plant species are cultivated. Some garden space might also be left to grow on its own and provide more habitat for birds and small animals. Certain types of garden statues are well suited for these types of gardens and include such animal statues as the Mother Doe and Fawn and the Mother Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal Sculpture. Both of these realistic and beautiful garden statue sets look right at home in a wilder, more natural garden. Another statue that looks right at home in a wilder garden is the Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

Three Tips to Pick Out the Best Animal Yard Statue for your Garden

Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub StatueAnimal garden sculptures come in many forms and sizes. With so many types of statues to choose from, it can be challenging to pick out the best decor for the garden. The following are three tips to help everyone from beginning gardeners to veterans in backyard decor pick out the best animal statues for their decorating needs:

  • Think about the size of the garden: Whether looking for an animal statue or a stone garden angel, this is one of the most basic things to consider. Size the statue accordingly because you don't want to pick out a statue that ends up dominating the entire garden. Instead, choose animal sculptures that will highlight the beauty of the yard without "taking over". A medium sized animal statue like the Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub Statue is a good bet.
  • Cute or fierce?: While you don't have to choose between the cutest statue and the scariest, gardeners do need to think about the type of animal personality portrayed in their garden. A Meerkat statue is ideal for those in search of a a curious, cute animal.
  • Wild or domesticated: In general, animal statues can also be separated into one of these two categories. Keep this in mind to decide if you would rather see a Swan of the Lake statue in the garden as opposed to a Prowling Spotted Jaguar statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of the animal garden statues in our collection when purchased by today, March 28th.
