A Few Decorating Tips for Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Young Poseidon Sculptural FountainSummer is the best season for decorating the backyard with an exquisite fountain or two. The quiet, soothing sound of bubbling water is relaxing, refreshing, and can also act as a bath for backyard birds. A beautiful fountain can also act as centerpiece decor but we might not know the best place for putting it on display.

Although an impressive classic like the Young Poseidon Sculptural Fountain will look fantastic no matter where it happens to be displayed, most classic fountains look best when shown in a prominent place. As with the fountains seen in Italian plazas, beautiful, majestic fountains are meant to be seen and admired from every angle.

Easy-going and earthy fountains like the Tranquil Springs Pagoda Garden Fountain and the Chapoteo Del Sol Sculptural Fountain might be better suited for a quiet garden corner, or peaceful, shaded part of the backyard. Over at the pool, the "Cascading Aloha Tiki" Three-Bowl Garden Fountain is a fun, easy way to give it a bit of South Pacific flair.

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:

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. They will also love the Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statue.

Save on Beautiful Animal Garden Sculptures of Birds at Design Toscano

Birds also make wonderful subjects for garden statues. Beautiful Indian Peafowl have strolled through the big gardens of Victorian estates, Roman villas, and royal grounds for hundreds of years.

Dolphins Statues and Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Monumental Five Dophin Spitting Bronze StatueDolphins rank among the most beloved of animals. These intelligent marine mammals seem to enjoy playing in the waves of the sea as much as or even more than people, can learn a wide variety of tricks, and have even saved people from drowning. It's hard not to admire dolphins as they swim next to a boat and jump into the air with spinning leaps. Not surprisingly, these sleek animals have been featured in art for literally thousands of years. Depictions of dolphins can be seen on frescos and pottery that date back to ancient Greece, and they have been frequently immortalized in sculpted form.

Given their aquatic nature, they also make wonderful, fitting sculptures for garden fountains. The Monumental Five Dolphin Spitting Bronze Garden Statue is one of our most impressive fountains. Each of the beautiful sculpted dolphins in this bronze heirloom piece spit water from their mouths and are carefully modeled after the real Bottlenose Dolphins that play in the waters of the Caribbean.

The Dolphins in Tandem Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture is another stunning fountain that depicts everyone's favorite marine mammal at play. This beautiful bronze statue is a powerful, stunning addition to any garden, and works especially well as hotel decor.
