Picking Out the Perfect Garden Statues for Mom

The Daydream Fairy SculptureTime is running out to find that perfect Mother's Day gift! Sure, you could always put it off and do some last minute shopping but is it worth the risk of settling on some average gift or cheap, everyday decor? We think not and that's why we want to help you find the best gift for Mom. If she likes to spend any amount of time in the garden, she will love one or more of our resin garden statues.

However, since we have such a huge collection of high quality sculptures, we know that it can be a challenge to pick out the ideal gift for such an important person. Here are a couple of tips on picking out the best garden statue gifts for Mom:

  • Complement a decorating theme: If Mom's backyard already follows a decorating theme that includes animals, you might want to buy a cute animal yard statue like Pancho the Burro Planter Sculpture.
  • Think of her interests: Think about the books she likes to read and the movies she likes to watch. If she enjoys fantasy novels, you might want to give her the Daydream Fairy Sculpture or another of our beautiful garden fairies.
  • Buy a statue that can be used in the garden and inside the home: She will like the statue even more if it works inside the home just as well as it does in the garden. The Thoughts of an Angel Sculptural Wall Roundel is one of several such items in our collection.

Enjoy our Mother's Day sale with a 20% discount on any of the beautiful resin garden statues and unique decor on our site until April 28th.

Some Design Toscano Décor Is for The Birds

Summer's Splash Sculptural BirdbathA garden doesn't just act as a place for relaxation and maintaining flowerbeds. It's also invaluable green space in increasingly urbanized surroundings. In addition to providing us with a tree or two for hanging a swing and showing unique greenmen decor, the green space in the garden can be home to several types of birds. Sparrows, grosbeaks, goldfinches, cardinals, and chickadees are regular garden visitors in many parts of North America. It can be fun to watch them, listen to their songs, and see them interact with choice resin garden statues.

One of the easiest and most common types of bird-friendly statue is the bird bath. Birds love to bathe in small pools of water, especially on hot summer days and they can add just the right touch of natural, animated decor to such fine garden statues as the Summer's Splash Sculptural Birdbath. Put this beautiful decor in the backyard and you will be surprised at the species of birds that show up. To see the most birds, place it about five feet from vegetation so they have a safe place to fly to if they feel threatened.

Providing birds with a place to live will also bring House Wrens, sparrows, and swallows to the backyard. Get the "Laughing Greenman" Birdhouse Statue to watch birds raise their young in the most interesting birdhouse on the block!

Modern Bronze Garden Sculptures from Design Toscano

Going for ParBronze has been an important sculpting medium for thousands of years. Although the original sculpture is actually made in wax, it gets transformed into a beautiful bronze statue via the lost wax method. This is the same process used to create the bronze pieces in our collection, including some of our modern bronze statues. Our Going for Par bronze statues are cast in this manner and are a beautiful addition to the garden of any estate. They also act as excellent sculptures for country clubs and any golf course.

The Dancing Girl of the Wind Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture is another fine sculpture cast in the lost wax method. This striking work of art will become a centerpiece item in any Victorian-themed garden. From the windblown cloth to her ruffled hair, every movement in this beauty of a sculpture seems to be frozen in time and turns it into heirloom garden decor.

If you would like to showcase African-themed art, the African Water Maiden Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture will be a perfect fit. The multi-toned verdigris patina of this solid bronze sculpture, five foot height, and artistic lines make it a prized centerpiece item for the backyard or office garden.

If you would rather put a more simple bronze statue in the garden, you might like the Winged Salute to the Sun Bronze Statue. This verdigris bronze work of art is fine decor for any garden.

New Outdoor Garden Water Fountains at Design Toscano

Spirit of the Ocean Two Tier Seahorse FountainEvery garden could use a fountain. Garden fountains put the crowning touch on backyard decor because these sculptural works of art incorporate both artistic and natural beauty. They also add that extra bit of natural soothing sound that helps us relax at the end of a long day. At Design Toscano, we offer a large selection of sculptural fountains because we are well aware of the important role they play when it comes to garden decor. We also regularly update our selection of garden fountains to fit a wide variety of decorating needs.

The "Spirit of the Ocean" Two-Tier Seahorse Fountain is a striking, unique piece that pays homage to the sea with several sculpted seahorses. This fountain works very well in a garden that features other ocean-themed decor, including the "Giant Red King Crab" Sculptural Chair.

The "Copper Falls" Cascading Garden Fountain is modern decor highlighted by beautiful burnished copper, flowing water, and smooth river stones. This artistic fountain will look great in any garden but looks especially nice in backyards with garden fairies, and contemporary decor.

A Few Stunning, New Garden Statues

Beautiful Black SwanThese are the days when most of us get back out into the backyard to do a little cleaning, get the garden ready for planting, and contemplate how we are going to decorate it. While looking over the garden statuary collection, we can't help but pick out some of our favorite statues from previous years and think about the ones that we need to replace. Although it can be tough to part with certain garden statues, if they aren't going to fit into a new decorating theme, it's probably better to buy new ones.

One of the best places to look for statues for the backyard is in our selection of new garden statues. This is where we put our newest angels, animal statues, unique gnomes, and other statuary on display. Not only is "Axle Grease, the Biker Gnome" Statue one of our newest gnomes, but he also shows that gnomes can be far more than cute, little creatures with pointed hats.

Our "Beautiful Black Swan" Statue is one of our many new and unique animal statues. This animal yard statue demonstrates the noble mystery of the Black Swan from its "S" shaped neck to the fine details in each and every feather.

Resin Garden Statues of Beautiful Desert Wildlife

The Great RoadrunnerThe desert is a stark, beautiful place. The vegetation might be covered in spines and thorns but it has its own sort of unique architecture, the sunsets are fantastic, and scenery is inspirational at every turn. The lack of water has also resulted in animals just as interesting as the Saguaros and tumbleweeds. Putting sculptural representations of those animals in the garden is especially fitting in places with an arid climate, in rock gardens, and in backyards that already show a fun display of animal garden statuary.

One of the signature species of the American deserts is the Greater Roadrunner. While most people might only be familiar with this funny bird as a cartoon character, in real life, it happens to be a common, ground dwelling bird of the American southwest. This terrestrial cuckoo species trots along dry creek beds to hunt for small lizards, mice, and even small rattlesnakes. "The Great Roadrunner" Statue captures the determination and speed of this funny bird with fine details and accurate colors.

Another unique desert creature that makes a fine addition to many a backyard is the "Frill-Necked Lizard" Statue. Closely modeled after the frilled lizards that live in the hot, dry deserts of Australia, this high quality animal yard statue is a very close representation of the real thing.

Enjoy 20% off these fine animal garden sculptures and any of the garden statues at Design Toscano from today until April 14th.

This symbol of the National Audubon Society is carefully crafted and painted by hand to look just like the actual, elegant bird that wades in coastal marshes and wetlands.

Realistic Alligator Animal Garden Statues

Stalking Swamp PredatorAlligators are one of the most respected and interesting animals of the southern swamplands. They are almost entirely native to the United States of America and are a common sight in the waterways of Florida. In Louisiana, locals even use Alligator meat in several Cajun dishes. Although most of the Alligators in the bayou are small and rarely grow bigger than five feet, monsters that reach lengths of eight feet or more still occur in a few of the more remote swamps.

Those big gators are the perfect inspiration for a ferocious animal yard statue. The Stalking Swamp Predator Statue captures the tough and fearsome appearance of an angry Alligator with a sharp, toothy maw, scaly hide, and other accurate details. The eight foot length is also going to make an impression on all of your garden guests! Put it next to the pool for full effect!

Pair the stalking predator with the Snapping Swamp Gator Statue to make every pool party an exciting one. The Gargantuan Garden Gator Statue is another full-sized fearsome Alligator statue that will make anyone think twice before venturing in to your backyard!

Resin Garden Statues to Honor the Memory of Loved Ones

Angels of Alghero Religious StatuesGarden statuary can be used for more than decor. While we do put high quality animal garden sculptures, garden angels, and other classic sculptures into a garden or backyard to help beautify it and give it character, we can also use religious statues for inspiration and paying homage to our belief systems. We can put in outdoor garden water fountains to bring the soothing sound of falling water into the backyard, and the permanence and beauty of sculptures make them perfect for remembering loved ones who have passed away.

The Angel of Grief Monument Statue is a classic piece that was designed by William Wetmore Story in memory of his dearly departed wife. Similar sculptures are seen in cemeteries and gardens to this day because they encapsulate the grief we feel upon losing a loved one. This statue pairs well with the Angels of Alghero Religious Statues and the stunning Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue.

Cast stone memorial garden benches are another excellent means of remembering loved ones with garden decor. We have a variety of cast stone benches in our collection that can be personalized with the name of the dearly departed. The In Our Hearts Forever Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is one such item that reminds us of the love we still feel for the departed with a beautiful phrase.

Enjoy 20% off these items and all garden statues at Design Toscano from today until April 14th.

How to Decorate the Garden with a Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot the Garden YetiA legendary creature is said to roam the wild lands of North America. Tales and many a witness describe a huge, hairy beast that walks on two legs and haunts the deep forests and swamps of the Pacific northwest, the southern states, and even the river valleys of eastern Ohio. It only comes out at night and although no one has ever taken a definitive photo of the creature, hundreds of people insist that they have seen it and many have also made casts of its giant  footprints. It has been called "Bigfoot" on account of those huge feet but that's just the most recent name given to this cryptozoological beast. Different Native American cultures also refer to it as Sasquatch and Genoskwa, and some believers call it the Great North American Ape!

No matter what you call Bigfoot, a statue of the large, hairy Hominid is a unique, wonderful addition to the backyard. While you could put Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti Statue on display right in the middle of the yard. a more realistic spot for a Bigfoot sculpture is under the shade of a large tree or in the recesses of the garden. This more closely matches its shy, retiring nature and will add realism to your collection of resin garden statues. Compliment the standing Bigfoot sculpture with the equally unique Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Enjoy 20% off these sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.
