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.

Three Ideas for Spring Garden Statuary

A Cherub's PrayerThe weather might still be cold in some places and hot in other locales but spring is definitely here. Finally, we can venture back outside and enjoy the beauty of the garden. We can plant our favorite flowers and vegetables, and decorate the backyard to our heart's content. If you aren't sure how you would like to decorate the backyard for spring, we hope that the following three ideas will help:

  • New garden statues: Spring is about celebrating the end of winter and getting a fresh start. Celebrate the warmer weather by treating yourself to new garden decor. Those new sculptures can take the form of lovely, small decor like A Cherub's Prayer Statue, or you could go for large statues like the Majestic Horse Sculpture.

Unique Garden Statuary Gnomes for Spring

Handstand Henry Garden GnomeSpring is the perfect time of the year for renewal. Another year's winter has finally come to its long-awaited end and it gives us a chance to clean out the house, hold a yard sale, and get a new start on the garden. It's also a wonderful opportunity to pick out new garden statues for the backyard, including unique sculptures for a different decorating theme.

Sometimes, the new decorating theme can be a new take on classic decor. Garden gnome statues are one such example. These colorful little characters have become a modern, garden decor classic because they add an easy-going, cheerful touch to any backyard. However, they also come in more varieties than the common gnomes seen in the average yard. Handstand Henry the Garden Gnome Statue shows that these little guys can be a lot more acrobatic than we think. This unique gnome statue lends a fun, active look to flowerbeds and at the entrance to the backyard.

You can also show the mischievous side of gnomes with the Up the Ladder: Climbing Garden Gnome Statue. This fun sculpture looks great when placed at the base of a favorite tree, or even next to a dog house. Complement your collection of unique gnomes with the "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue.

Big Animal Garden Statues for a Big Backyard

Mombasa, the Graden Giraffe StatueFolks who are fortunate to have their own backyard are lucky indeed. They can reserve part of that green space for vegetables and flowering plants, have the opportunity to install a pond or beautiful outdoor garden water fountains, and can relax by the pool on hot summer days. However, folks with a huge backyard are even more fortunate because they might have sufficient space for a soccer field, volleyball court, and plenty of room for a big display of garden statuary.

Greek garden statues can lend a classic look to one corner of the big backyard, the opposite corner can host a grove of trees decorated with greenmen and a Bigfoot statue, and garden fairies can lend an enchanted touch to the flowerbeds. Although grand-scale animal statues will work in any yard, they look most at home in the biggest of backyards.

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue punctuates the yard with an exciting, naturally artistic look. The kids will love it and pretend that they are on an African safari. Once the safari is over, kids of all ages can relax in the "paws" of the amazing "Sitting Pretty" Oversized Brown Bear Statue with Paw Seat.
