Greek Garden Statues or an Animal Yard Statue?

Hebe, the Goddess of YouthMid summer is here and it could be time to change some of the garden statuary. Those garden fairies that were a perfect addition to a backyard during the spring just don't seem to fit in with the other summer decor. Or, it could be that you just didn't get a chance to buy any new decor before summer kicked into gear. Whatever the reason, when it's time to go shopping for new statues for the garden, even if you already know where to buy high quality decor for the best prices, you also have to figure out what to buy.

For example, do you go with a new stone garden angel or other form of classic statuary, or a realistic animal garden sculpture? It would be nice to buy all of the above and more but since most of us are on at least some sort of budget, we have to settle for one or two of our favorite choices. If you are looking to add a touch of class to the garden, you might want to go with something like Hebe the Goddess of Youth or Thalia, Muse of the Garden. If the backyard could stand for a more natural look, we have a large selection of animal garden statues, including such wild animals as the Lioness of Namibia.

How to Choose Asian Garden Statues for Your Backyard

Far East Garden Fighter Ninja GnomeResin garden statues are wonderful, essential decor for many situations but it can be a challenge to pick out the right statue. We usually start by asking ourselves a few key questions like "Which type of statues will look best in the garden?", "How many statues should I buy?", and "Which decorating theme should I follow?". In addition, if you haven't done much shopping for garden statues, you might not even know where to look.

Whether just getting started with garden decor or looking for another addition to your personal collection of heirloom quality items, the best place to shop is Design Toscano. Take a brief look through our extensive collection and it won't take long to see that we have the best selection of unique, quality decor for the best prices. If you were thinking of putting Asian-themed decor in the backyard, browsing our Asian garden statue collection is the first easy step in finding the best Asian decorations for the garden. Here are two other questions to consider when looking for the best Asian statue:

  • Is this the first Asian statue for the garden?: If you already have Asian-themed garden decor but lack a dragon, the Asian Dragon of the Great Wall could be a suitable addition. Or, if this will be the first Asian-themed decor in your backyard, the Enlightened Buddha Sculpture will make an impression. 

 

  • How do you use your garden?: For example, if the backyard is dedicated to fun activities and parties, a Far East Garden Fighter Ninja Gnome could fit the bill. However, if the backyard is a quiet retreat or place for meditation, you would be better off with something along the lines of a solid bronze Tranquil Buddha Statue.

Entertain Garden Guests with These Animal Garden Statues

Saddle Up Horse BenchWe use our gardens for everything from quiet meditation to big backyard celebrations. Even if the garden is mostly reserved for the birds, trees, and peace of mind, it's still going to see an occasional guest. This is partly why we strive to find high quality, fun decor, and statues that will lend character to our personal green space. The following animal resin garden statues are just a few of many entertaining sculptures in our collection:

  • Death Valley Jake, the Jackalope Statue: When European settlers moved into the western frontier, they were entertained with tales of an odd creature that was half Jackrabbit and half Pronghorn Antelope. Although this oddity has never been seen in life, you can keep up the tradition of the Jackalope by putting this life-like statue on display in the backyard.

 

  • Terrence the Terrier Digging Pet Dog Statue: This fun sculpture shows a terrier doing what it loves to do best. Give a terrier an opportunity and it will happily put a large hole right in the middle of your garden.

Give a Boost to Summer Business with Garden Statuary

Three Amigos Spitting DolphinsThe warm days of summer are wonderful for many reasons. They act as a welcome respite from winter (especially when it's a brutal one), encourage us to take full advantage of the outdoors, and are a great time to explore and experience sites close and far from home. For many a business, summer is also an important time of the year. With more people outdoors and eager to enjoy time outside the home, more customers walk through the doors of restaurants, hotels, and a wide variety of stores.

Every business owner knows that it pays to use strategic marketing that brings customers into a place of business during the summer months, and garden statues can be an excellent, high value part of the marketing equation. However, not just any garden sculptures will do. We aren't talking about putting a gnome or two on display at a hotel but unique, spectacular statuary like the Lion of Florence Sentinel Statue and Base to welcome guests at the door of your hotel or restaurant. Majestic sculptures like this and the Grand Stone Egyptian Sphinx Statue make a place of business stand out from competition and will keep customers talking about their experience long after they have gone home.

Bronze sculptures like the beautiful Three Amigos Spitting Dolphins Trio can also do wonders for hotel decor and adds a regal touch to any place of business. Essentially, fantastic sculptures like this make people want to go in, stay for dinner or shopping, and come back with friends on another day.

Fantastic Flying Resin Garden Statues

Wingspan Seagull StatueGarden statuary has become much more than classic sculptures, angel statues, and gargoyle figurines. Thanks to advances in resin technologies, we can also decorate the yard with beautiful, realistic animal garden sculptures, exquisite garden fountains, and a host of unique statuary for a fraction of the cost associated with marble and other sculpting mediums. Statuary can also be engineered to hang from trees and even look as if it's flying through the backyard. 

What? Flying garden statues? Yes, decor like the incredible Prehistoric Pteranodon Dinosaur Statue can be hung from trees or rafters to help it "fly" through the yard or place of business on wings that span ten feet. Put this incredible garden sculpture on display in one corner of the yard and the equally life-like Pteranodon Scaled Dinosaur Statue in another part of the backyard for full flying effect.

If the garden or home would look better with a flying sculpture of a modern-day animal, you might like our Wingspan Seagull Statue. This realistic statue of a gull has a big, six foot wingspan, and can be hung from a tree in the backyard or inside the home. It also looks great when displayed near a pool.

Colorful Sculptures for Outside

Garden statuary has been crafted from such varied mediums as wood, bronze, plaster, and stone. For centuries, marble was the preferred medium of choice because this type of stone is hard yet easier to work into detailed curves and shapes than granite and other stone sculpting mediums, and is also available in a beautiful range of colors. The popularity of marble as a sculpting medium has resulted in many modern day garden statues being made with the same suite of pale colors. Although there's nothing wrong with garden statues painted with the same range of pale shades as actual marble sculptures, there's also nothing wrong with decorating the garden, home interior, or business with much more colorful statues.

Giant Garden Gecko LizardOur new Leaping Bengal Tiger statue adds a striking touch to any garden with the orange, black, and white colors of this legendary big cat. Display this colorful sculpture near flowerbeds, bushes, or other vegetation to highlight its realistic appearance.

The Giant Garden Gecko Lizard is another of our more colorful animal garden statues. The bright, shiny green of this unique wall decor is highlighted by bright yellow toes. Complement this beautiful lizard statue with Iggy the Iguana. Although Iggy won't be climbing the walls of your home, he does lend a colorful, realistic touch to the entranceway of any backyard.  

Shop at Design Toscano today to find the best deals on high quality resin garden statues for every home and business.
