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.

Beautiful Bronze Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Man with Shell Bronze SculptureA fountain is always a fine addition for a backyard. In fact, for many gardeners, it's the most important centerpiece decor in the backyard because it blends the soothing sounds and sights of running water with beautiful sculpted forms. Some of the most magnificent fountains are bronze and this is why we include a variety of these beautiful, classic fountains in our collection.

The Man with Shell Bronze Sculpture is a classic bronze sculpture that would be right at home on a Victorian estate or on the grounds of an ancient Roman villa. Although it can stand on its own as centerpiece decor, it looks best when water flows through the bronze shell and into your pond or pool.

Our Mermaid of the Isle of Capri is another classic bronze sculpture that looks simply magnificent. This bronze also works best as a fountain and has a shell that is piped for this purpose.

Smaller yet just as beautiful bronze fountains are also available including the Giant Jumping, Spitting, Leaping Frog Bronze Garden Statue. Caught in time as it leaps into the air, this bronze frog also spits a stream of water into your pond or pool. Pair it with the fun Darn Frog on Lily Pad Bronze Garden Sculpture for full humorous effect.

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.

Dinosaurs: The Ultimate Animal Garden Sculptures!

Jurassic Sized Allosaurus DinosaurBig cats like lions and tigers make beautiful and stunning animal garden sculptures. We admire these top predators for their beautiful patterns and colors, their grace, and their power. However, as big and strong as these felines might be during the present day, in prehistoric times, they would have been outmatched many times over by the top predators of the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Those massive beasts comprised a variety of fierce dinosaurs, including the likes of Allosaurus and the famous T-Rex.

Although they went extinct millions of years ago, those ultimate land animals live on in museums, books, and on film. Thanks to the imagination and skill of artists who work with resin garden statues, you can also pay homage to dinosaurs with statues of them for the yard. Given their long lasting fame and amazing appearance, dinosaur statues are strong contenders for being the ultimate in animal garden statues. Our Jurassic-Sized Allosaurus Dinosaur Statue is a big, highly detailed dinosaur sculpture that shows the same predatory shape and demeanor of the actual, fanged beast (as far as we know!). Pair it with a small yet powerful Scaled Jurassic T-Rex Raptor Dinosaur Statue. Since such predators also need something suitable to chase, you might want to also buy the realistic Jurassic-Sized Parasaurolopus Dinosaur Statue.

A Gargoyle Sculpture to Guard the Backyard

Leo the Laughing GargoyleGargoyles have been around for ages. In ancient times, sculptures of gargoyle like creatures and symbols were sometimes placed on or near sacred sites to act as a form of spiritual protection.

Similar gargoyles are used to this day to decorate gardens and home interior. Due to their classic, protective appearance, a quality gargoyle statue can look good in any type of garden.

If your backyard could still use a gargoyle or two, it might be time to buy one of our detailed gargoyle sculptures. Leo the Laughing Gargoyle Statue is one of the more cheerful gargoyles in our collection. This unique canine-gargoyle hybrid will be a hit at parties whether you put it on display inside the home or in the garden.

A Meerkat Statue for a Beautiful Spring Garden

Meerkat Gang SculptureSpring is in the air and few statues match that happy feeling better than cute animal garden sculptures. The more adorable, the better and this is why a Meerkat sculpture makes such a good match for a warm spring garden. The Meerkat is as cute as its  name indicates. A bit like a small cat, this itsy bitsy mongoose lives in large colonies in arid environments of southern Africa. In the wild, the colony spends most of their time foraging for bugs and other small animals while a few other meerkats keep watch for potential predators. They do so while standing up on their hind legs and give an alarm call if they spot an eagle, leopard, python, or other possible danger. If that happens, the chirping alarms send the entire colony scampering back to their burrows.

In the backyard, adorable, realistic Meerkat statues don't have to wory about any predators but they are still shown standing on their hind legs because that makes them look incredibly adorable! For example, it's hard to find animal garden statues that are more adorable than the Meerkat Gang Sculpture and the Meerkat family. The Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Into Hole & Out of Hole makes for another very cute addition to any yard and the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture just might be the cutest way to welcome guests to the garden.

Stone Garden Angel Statue Sets

Pescara Proclamation Angels Religious StatueThe angel statue has been classic garden decor for more than a thousand years. Travel to Europe and you will see tall, robed angels on the ramparts of Gothic cathedrals that date back to the Middle Ages, majestic, winged angel statues in Renaissance era churches, and a variety of angels in cemeteries and Victorian gardens. Sculptures of these heavenly beings capture our attention with their winged, other worldly appearance and add a classy touch to any garden. The only thing better than putting one angel statue in the garden is putting two angel statues on display and when those two statues work with each other as a set, they double their angelic splendor.

Angel statue pairs are often designed to welcome guests to a church or garden in stunning, regal fashion. That tendency is wonderfully demonstrated by the Pescara Proclamation Angels Religious Statues. These magnificent angels were cast from 19th century originals found in an Italian cathedral and show the same detailed robes, raised wings, and long, glorious trumpets. At over 6 feet in height, these breathtaking angels are suited for the biggest of gardens.

If the Pescara Angels seem a bit too big for your garden, the smaller yet no less stunning Majestic Angel Guardians of the Gate might be a suitable solution. These beautiful gateway angels are also cast from 19th century Italian originals and can be leveraged to provide lighting in the form of candles.

New Garden Statuary for Spring

Spring means warmer weather and a welcome respite from the cold but it's also all about renewal. After the long, cold winter (and this year was particularly brutal), it's a relief to see green grass, fresh flower buds on backyard trees, and birds singing in the garden. The backyard looks fresh, revived, and ready to be decorated with your favorite stone garden angel, animal garden sculptures, and other cheerful decor. To mark this natural celebration, match the garden's fresh, new look with new garden statues from Design Toscano.

St. Fiacre, the Gardener's Patron Saint Statue is a nice addition for folks who are serious about gardening. Legend has it that Saint Fiacre was able to create a huge, beautiful healing herb garden with little effort. Hopefully, some of that gardening prowess will rub off on those who put his statue on display.

Another good candidate for a new spring garden statue is our Cherubs d'Amour sculpture. This cute little statue blends an angelic appearance with the innocent beauty of children and is a nice addition for a garden decorated with classic statuary or religious statues. Pair it with the equally adorable "Basket of Treats" Cherub Statue for full effect.
