Three Perfect Places for Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Greetings from the Garden GnomesHigh quality garden statues make a fine statement in any backyard but garden decor can have a bigger impact when put on display in the right places. Fountains in particular, stand out for their unique, dynamic appearance, and lend a touch of class wherever they are put on display. That said, these are three of the best places for showcasing a beautiful garden fountain:

 

  • In a quiet corner of the backyard: If the garden is used as a place for meditation, decor like the Cathedral Rocks Cascading Fountain can help. Put this natural-themed fountain in a part of the garden that could use the sound of falling water.

 

  • The entranceway to a restaurant or hotel: When clients or guests walk into a place of business, we want to give them the best possible impression. Exquisite decor like the L'Acqua di Vita Sculptural Fountain shows that they have entered a place that wants to treat them like royalty.

Enjoy 20% off any of the fountains in our collection until May 19th.

However, even the best of Buddha statues look better when accompanied by beautiful Asian-themed decor.

Outstanding Contemporary Bronze Garden Sculptures

Nymph Dancing on LiliesA variety of sculpting mediums have been used throughout history. At present times, most high quality garden statues are made from resin. One hundred years ago, most statues were made from marble. However, before marble came into use, sculptures of the highest quality were cast in bronze. The qualities and beauty of this copper alloy made it an ideal choice for sculptures in the ancient past and it has continued to be an important material for sculptures today.

Some of the finest sculptures in our collection are cast in bronze and were made with the same lost wax method that was used for statues in the empires of the ancient world. Although several classic bronze sculptures can be found in our collection of garden statuary, we also offer modern day bronze decor fir for art galleries and the most distinguished of gardens. The Nymph Dancing on Lilies Cast Bronze Garden Statue is lovely, energetic, and piped to lend an enchanting touch to a backyard pond. This fine sculpture and the endearing Mother's Moment Cast Bronze Garden Statue both use a beautiful antiqued emerald verde patina to give these heirloom pieces additional color. Equally outstanding is the wonderfully detailed Fishing Family Cast Bronze Garden Statue.

Find the best selection of heirloom-quality statues and garden decor for the best prices at Design Toscano. Free Standard Shipping on Purchase of $75 or More through Sunday!

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.

Gothic Decor or Classic Garden Statuary?

French Pleurant StatueIt can be a dilemma. We realize that yes, the garden does need new statuary but do we buy a new Victorian-themed sculpture, another angel, or maybe even a gargoyle? Although gothic sculptures and classic statues might seem to be at two ends of the decorating spectrum, actually, such statues can have more in common than we think. Instead of settling on a classic statue, or a sinister gargoyle sculpture, why not get both?

Several gargoyles fit right in with classic sculptures and more than one classic item looks right at home in a garden that features a dragon statue, gargoyle, and other Gothic items. One such garden sculpture is the beautiful, yet haunting, French Pleurant statue. The intricate folds and faceless appearance of this decor give it a striking yet organic, natural look. Display this work of art next to a vibrant flowerbed or in the same field of view as your dragon sculptures.

Although the Odin Greenman Tree Stump Sculptural Table provides a fitting touch to yards decorated with Gothic items, it will also be the hit of the party in backyards decorated with classic statuary. Likewise, the Angel of Patience Sculpture and other angel statues act as inspiration no matter where they are put on display.

Animal Garden Statues from the Forest

Catch of the DayMany of the most interesting animals live in forest environments. Charismatic animals like Giant Pandas and Tigers live in the dense forests of eastern Asia. The misty, tall temperate zone rainforests of the Pacific Northwest are home to bears, deer, and (according to some people) Sasquatch. Hike in a tropical rainforest and you might see monkeys, exotic birds, and other jungle wildlife. No matter which forest you visit, you are bound to see an animal or two, and many of those forest animals look wonderful as animal garden sculptures.

In the backyard, statues of forest wildlife can make a wild, dramatic statement, and pay homage to the photogenic animals that live in national parks, national forests, and other wilderness areas. They remind us that majestic, wild creatures still exist in a modernized, industrial world, and encourage us to head into the wilds to see them. The Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture surprises garden guests with its fine details and realism. Just like the real bears in Alaska, this brawny bruin loves to catch salmon from a pristine stream.

A touch of mystery can be added to this wild scene in the form of Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture. Both of these wild sculptures also look great when shown with the Big Rack Buck Deer Statue and the beautiful "American Mountain Cougar" Statue.

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.

Sculptural Plinths as Garden Statuary

Grande Laurel Sculptural Plinth BaseHigh quality, classic garden statues look fantastic on their own but they look much better when they are given a place to stand on. The ancient Greeks and Romans realized this and is why they placed most of their sculptures on top of columns or plinths. These sculpted bases elevate fine sculptures to proper heights, help them stand out as centerpiece decor, and also add an extra, classic touch. Although any of the beautiful garden sculptures in our collection are fit to stand on their own, like the ancient Greeks and Romans, we also believe that such fine decor looks even better when placed on top of a classic plinth or elegant column.

Several sculptural plinths grace our collection including such classics as the Grande Laurel Sculptural Plinth Base and the Versailles Cherub Plinth. Both of these plinths are modeled after classic decor seen in museums and at the palace of Versailles. Use them to showcase any of your favorite sculptures, including magnificent angels like the Grand Cathedral Angel Sculpture.

The Rococo Sculptural Plinth can also be used to give a favorite sculpture a classic flourish. This beautiful plinth works especially well with statues of angels and the Lighting the Heavens Grande Cherub Sentinel Statue. We also have medium and large Classic Statuary Plinth Bases to fit all of your classic garden sculptures.
