Two Main Reasons for Putting Outdoor Water Garden Fountains in the Backyard

Medici Lion Four-Tier FountainA backyard can be such a special place. Whether you work in the cement and brick canyons of the city or in the great outdoors, it's always a pleasure to come home to your own, personal green oasis. Mark your garden with beautiful garden statuary, vegetables, and brilliant flowers and it takes on higher degrees of personal importance and becomes that much more capable of healing the stresses of the day. Fountains help accomplish healing with the happy, soothing sounds of gentle bubbling water. Two other good reasons for putting fountains on display in the backyard are:

  • Fountains are classic, functional decor: Sculptural fountains have played a very important role in the plazas of many European cities, they have graced the villas of nobility, and were an important centerpiece item in Victorian gardens. These works of art that blend sculpture with water continue to be lovely decor in any type of garden and can be a magnet for backyard birds that come for a drink and a dip.
  • The modern garden fountain comes in many shapes and sizes: Fountains can be classic, sculptural pieces such as the regal Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain, solid bronze garden statues, combine bronze and animal garden sculptures by taking the form of a bronze turtle, or be a bit more contemporary in appearance like the Cascading Garden Fountain.

Order these and other fine garden fountains from today until tomorrow, May 20th and get 20% off the regular price.

The Bubbling Beauty of Ceramic Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Clearwater Cove Ceramic Koi Fish FountainA fountain is a wonderful addition for a backyard. In blending the art form of sculpture with the natural beauty of water, a fountain mesmerizes with its graceful, refreshing appearance and peaceful, bubbling sounds. In fact, some might say that the sounds made by a fountain are more important than its appearance because without the water, a fountain converts back into a dry statue. The movement and intriguing sounds of flowing water bring a fountain to life and the modern Clearwater Cove Ceramic fountains accomplish this with unobtrusive, easy-going lines.

Each of the three Clearwater Cove fountains are unique ceramic sculptures that somewhat resemble vases that feature a bit of sculpted decor. In actuality, they are ceramic fountains designed to add a gentle touch to their surroundings while putting the focus on the sounds of bubbling, flowing water. Bring the soothing sounds of bubbling water and good luck to the backyard with the Elephant Fountain, a cheerful touch with the Frog Fountain, and the fun, classic garden look of Koi with the Koi Fountain. Each of these beautiful ceramic fountains are fired twice in a very hot kiln to give them a durable, waterproof glaze and are an excellent, peaceful complement to decks, and indoor and outdoor garden at both home and office.

Get 20% off these beautiful ceramic fountains and any of our new arrivals when purchased from today until tomorrow, May 15th!

The gentle gurgling water in outdoor water fountains provide us with the much needed sound of nature's voice. Life in the garden is also expressed by the voices of cheerful birds as they give their morning songs and the happy chirping of sparrows at a beautiful backyard feeder.

Outdoor Garden Water Fountains with a Natural Touch

Ridge Point Garden Fountain SculptureThe main goal of most gardens is growing various types of greenery. The garden acts as a private sanctuary where we can tend and show off beautiful flowerbeds, carefully pruned hedges, and stately trees. Nevertheless, the backyard always looks better with a bit of garden statuary. The right type of animal garden statues can give the yard a natural touch of drama and beauty, and garden fairies provide a mystical, magical touch. However, even if a garden is decorated with the best and most beautiful of sculptures, the decorating isn't truly complete until a water feature has been installed.

This can take the form of a small pond although most people settle for the beauty and natural grace of a fountain. A fountain takes still water and brings it to life. It gives it voice in the form of bubbling laughter and when you listen to that refreshing sound, it cleanses the worries and stress from the soul. It's an invaluable, natural form of therapy that can be expressed by any type of fountain. The Alpine Approach Garden Fountain has an impressive natural appearance that resembles steadfast Alpine granite being washed by clear, cold streams of water. Counter its impressive faux stone appearance with the weathered wood and stone look of the Ridge Point Garden Fountain Sculpture.

Order any of these sculptures along with anything else on our site between now and February 14th and get 20% off the regular price.

Beautiful Bronze Asian Garden Statues

The Asian-themed garden often plays host to bamboo (both living and sculpted forms), Koi ponds, and Buddha outdoor statues. There might also be a stunning Panda animal yard statue or even a Ninja Gnome but the most spectacular of Asian gardens usually showcase a bronze sculpture or two. Asian-themed sculptures tend to look more impressive and authentic when depicted in bronze because sculptures crafted from that ancient medium have adorned Chinese gardens for more than two thousand years.

Asian Dragon with Power Orb Solid Bronze Garden SculptureThe solid bronze Asian Dragon with Power Orb is one such spectacular sculpture. This writhing Asian water dragon is sculpted in the same style as classic dragons that adorn Chinese temples. The power orb is a modern touch but gives this beautiful bronze sculpture a magical, captivating appearance. Although it can be shown on its own, this fantastic, piped bronze sculpture is at its best when placed in a pond or fountain.

The Tranquil Buddha Statue is another stunning Asian-themed bronze sculpture. Carefully crafted in the traditional lost wax method, this Buddha statue is beautifully detailed and resembles many Buddha sculptures that grace temple grounds in Thailand and China. The peaceful, contented look on the face of this Buddha is timeless and inspirational.

Save on these fantastic bronze sculptures and hundreds of other statues for the backyard and the interior of your home and business at Design Toscano.

Garden Statuary for a Spa

The Goddess Harmonia: Stone Finish Contemporary Nude Life-Size StatueThe spa is a place we escape to for rejuvenation and regeneration. The stress free nature and relaxing activities of a spa are just as healing for the mind as they are for the body and for many of us they can represent a little piece of Shangri-La before we head back to the work and toil of our everyday lives. For these reasons, the decor used in a spa is just as important as the massages and other healing processes that take place. In a sense, they are a bit like a well maintained and decorated garden only much more extensive in nature.

Those people who own a spa are certainly aware of this and most make efforts to endow their business with appropriate decor. Statues usually take the form of graceful, relaxing pieces that add to the peaceful, pleasant atmosphere. These are sculptures like the lifesize and lifelike Goddess Harmonia sculpture. This five and a half foot statue is lifecast and shows why the human body can be the most beautiful and graceful of works of art.

The peace and reenergizing nature of flowing water also makes it a common component of spas. Outdoor garden water fountains are therefore an important aspect of spa decor and sculptural fonts like our stunning Hebe, the Goddess of Youth Garden Fountain are frequently seen.

Which Meerkat Sculpture for the Garden?

Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Out of HoleHow can you not like Meerkats? Animated and entertaining, they stand on their hind legs to scan their surroundings for both friend and foe. Their black-tipped fingers and dark markings around the eyes give them a wonderfully mischievous, cartoon-like appearance. It's too bad that these beautiful little animals only naturally occur in southern Africa but at least you can add them to your yard in the form of realistic, detailed animal garden statues. The main question is which one to put in the garden?

The Meerkat Gang Sculpture is a classic depiction of these noble little creatures and looks beautiful in any yard.Try putting it near the flowers so the Meerkats can guard them with bright, watchful eyes.

You can also mix Meerkats with outdoor garden water fountains when you buy the Meerkat Family at the Watering Hole Sculpture. Just as they would do in their dry Kalahari Desert homeland, a family of Meerkats hangs out at a precious watering hole and stand on their hind legs to get a better view of their surroundings.

For one of the cutest of Meerkat statues, see the Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Out of Hole. Just as the name of the statue implies, a cute Meerkat peeks its adorable head out of its burrow to inspect your garden.

Make Your Backyard Sing with Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Heavenly Moments Angel Sculptural FountainThe garden should be a quiet, relaxing place but it doesn't need to be absent of sound. In fact, it can't and shouldn't be absolutely silent because the subtle sounds of nature are one of the benefits of any backyard. Birds sing from the tops of trees in spring and early summer, and chirp and chatter at other times of the year. On warm summer evenings, crickets and other insect sounds can act as natural lullabies. Even during the dead of winter, sound is still present as wind blows through the trees. The natural sounds should be there but you do yourself and the garden a favor by installing water fountains to add to the backyard symphony .

Fountains have played important roles in European plazas for hundreds of years. Locals came to them to fill their water buckets but they also enjoyed the sights and sounds of beautiful sculptures that blended water and stone. The water in a good fountain gurgles but the splashing and flow of a great fountain positively sings. These are pieces like the Cherubs at Play Sculptural fountain and the Heavenly Moments Angel Sculptural fountain. Both are as beautiful for the ears as they are for the eyes and will fill any garden with the happy sounds of laughing water.

Garden Statuary for Enchanting Backyard Soirees

Mystical Unicorn of Avalon SculptureThe summer winds down in August and those dog days make more than a few of us ready for the refreshing winds of autumn.

Summer is the Time for Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Pondering Cupid Garden FountainThere are decorations for every season. Garland around the windows and pumpkins on the porch are unheard of during the warm, lazy days of June whereas fountains are usually turned off as soon as the weather starts to dip into the 60's. After the water is turned off, their basins fill with the detritus of autumn and it's as if fountains go to sleep for the winter. They can still act as beautiful resin garden statues but they become that and nothing more. However, when the temperature start to rise again, fountains come back to life as centerpieces for gardens across Canada and the USA.

No longer the inanimate statue of winter, fountains laugh with bubbling water as it rushes through the veins of the sculpture. Birds visit to splash and cool off in the basin and the sound of the water becomes as soothing as the sight is refreshing.

The Pondering Cupid Garden Fountain demonstrates why fountains are more than either art or function. That blend is beautifully shown in this classical replica of an eighteenth century fountain.

Fountains that follow nature-inspired themes also work well in just about any backyard. The Rocky Mountain Splash Black Bears Garden Fountain will be a reminder that animals enjoy the summer months just as much as people.

The Elegance of Japanese Garden Statues

The Nara Temple: Asian Garden Pagoda SculptureGardens are an essential part of Japanese culture. While people from just about every culture plant and care for vegetables and other plants near their homes, the Japanese garden is in a class of its own. A high population density, Shinto philosophies, the challenge posed by the elements, and other factors have worked together to turn the Japanese garden into a veritable artform.

Gardens of course vary by owner and circumstance but in general, every statue, outdoor garden sculpture, rock, and bush seems to have been situated in the garden as part of the overall design. Each plant is trimmed in a manner than accentuates the beauty of the garden, and sculptures incorporated into the green space are nothing short of exquisite.

Sculptures like the Nara Temple Pagoda are an ideal choice for Japanese gardens given the caliber of details and quality that they demand. As graceful as it is elegant, this statue will be one of the highlights of any Japanese garden.

Water is elegance all on its own and is probably why liquid H2O is incorporated into most Japanese gardens. One fountain in particular that works well for even the most detailed of these gardens is the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain. It's height (nearly four feet) and ability to create natural "music" earn it a coveted spot in any Asian-themed backyard.

Garden Statuary for the Backyard Naturalist

Mother Nature: Maiden of the Forest StatueGardens are places to grow plants that help feed the family and add beauty to your backyard. We plant, clip, and manage the vegetation that shoots up out of the ground but it's also worth it to let some parts of a big backyard grow wild. While many would refer to certain species of fast-growing plants as "weeds", botanists and nature lovers might call them, "early successional plants". Let those grow in the corner of a backyard and you might be surprised at the birds that show up. Letting the trees grow large and wild will also attract different types of birds and provides homes for squirrels and, sometimes, bats (easy, natural insect control).

Put up bird boxes and they will be used. Set up outdoor garden water fountains and you will be amazed at the numbers and types of birds that show up for a bath. Sculptures that help wildlife are always appreciated by those who love a natural backyard, but animal garden statues also work as exciting, detailed decor.

Another statue that is perfect for every nature lover is Mother Nature: Maiden of the Forest. Holding doves of peace and wearing a berry and ivy decorated gown, she is a representation of the enchanting, magical side of nature.

Find these and objets d'art for every backyard at Design Toscano.
