Backyard Birds Love Outdoor Water Garden Fountains

Portare Acqua Italian-Style Sculptural FountainGarden green space is a place for rejuvenation, relaxation, and much more. We decorate the backyard with beautiful resin garden statues, use this green space to cultivate herbs, flowers, and other plants, and admire the sights and sounds of nature. Birds are some of the most obvious visitors to the backyard and entertain us with bright colors and pleasant songs. They are natural living decor and one of the best best ways to attract and keep them in the backyard is with a fountain.

Many birds will come to bird feeders but they also love to visit fountains. They will drink the water, bathe in it, and play in the fountain, especially during hot weather. Birds will visit just about any fountain, including classic fountains like the Portare Acqua Italian-Style Sculptural Fountain. This exquisite decor is a fine addition to any yard although the birds might feel more at home at the St. Francis Life-Giving Waters Fountain.

If a modern fountain would look better in the garden, no problem, birds also love to visit those. The Cathedral Rocks Cascading Fountain and the Chimney Canyon Garden Fountain Sculpture are two of several beautiful, natural-themed fountains in our collection. Watch birds at these soothing fountains during the day and enjoy the illuminated appearance of their waters at night.

How to Decorate a Bigfoot Statue for the Fall

Bigfoot the Garden YetiAugust might be a lazy, hot time of the year but autumn is just around the corner. The kids will be headed back to school in a few weeks, and Halloween is just two months away! Fall is also a fun time of the year for garden decor, especially if you have a Bigfoot sculpture. Statues of Sasquatch look great any time of the year but look even better as the leaves change color and fall from the trees. It becomes easier for neighbors and guests to notice that Bigfoot in the yard and this acts as the perfect incentive for decorating your Bigfoot decor.

Nevertheless, Bigfoot doesn't have to stand out in the garden all on his own. The large, hairy biped can also be decorated in a number of ways for the autumn season, including the following:

  • Give Sasquatch a hat: Baseball season and cooler temperatures make hats popular during the fall. Adorn Bigfoot with a baseball cap showing the local team and he will fit right in.

 

  • A flannel scarf: To keep him warm on those first nights of frost, put a scarf on your Bigfoot sculpture that matches the colors of the fall foliage.

Resin Garden Statues of Kittens

Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome SignGreek garden statues and solemn stone garden angels lend a beautiful, dramatic look to the garden. When put on display in restaurants and hotels, they can also welcome guests in classic, elegant fashion. However, as much as we love classic garden statuary, few folks would refer to such sculptures as being "cute". There are other sculptures that are much more suited for giving a cute touch to the yard, and one of the best is the kitten statue.

Big imploring eyes, a cute little face, and funny antics make kittens incredibly adorable and that same heart warming look is shown by several of our baby cat statues. If you would like to welcome guests to the garden in super cute fashion, put out the Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome Sign. Your guests will love it but watch out for cat lovers because they just might try to steal it!

Complement this cute kitten welcome sign with another fun kitten statue in our collection, the Kitten Crowd Family Statue. This sculpture shows a realistic portrayal of a family of happy house cats and looks "purrfect" when placed near the back door or in a library or living room. While acquiring kitten statues for the garden and home, you won't go wrong with the "Cherished Cat" Persian Kitten Statue for the desk. These kitten statues also make great gifts!

Welcome Guests to the Backyard with Unique Garden Statues

Garden Iris Cast Stone Welcome SignThe backyard is an extension of the house but also acts as a separate, unique place. It's where we do our gardening, relax in a natural setting, swim in the pool, and host outdoor parties. When guests walk into the backyard, we want them to realize that they are entering a special place. One of the most straightforward means of accomplishing this is with "welcome decor". This is the decor that meets everyone who walks into the garden and can literally welcome them with a lettered sign or be a sculpture that acts as the first thing they see.

How guests are welcomed affects their overall experience and could make an impact on their views of the home owners. To give garden guests a unique, first class welcome, put the Garden Iris Cast Stone Welcome Obelisk Statue near the back gate. This wonderful cast stone obelisk is beautifully detailed with engravings of Iris plantings, a dragonfly, and two bees.

For a fun, easy-going garden, you might want to greet guests to the home or even front door of the house with the Delightful Dancing Ducks Welcome Sign. If you would rather show people that you aren't afraid at all of being creative and imaginative, you could also greet guests with a Bigfoot Statue.

Beautiful Weathervanes as Functional Garden Statuary

Strutting Rooster Full SizeAt Design Toscano, we carry far more than unique Bigfoot Statues, dozens of high quality stone garden angels, and beautiful furniture. Our collection also includes such functional decor as fountains, drain spouts, and weathervanes. Weathervanes in particular are wonderful decor for any home. These fun items hearken back to old fashioned times before any weather forecasters or electronic gadgets could tell us if a storm was headed our way. Instead, we had to rely on almanacs, educated guesses of community elders, and a good, strong weathervane.

The weathervane had to be strong enough to stand up to the biggest gusts of wind, hail, and winter snowstorms, and this is why they were crafted from metal. Our weathervanes follow that classic tradition, are fully functional, and will last for decades (if not centuries). Not to mention, they also look fantastic! Our Windblown Wicked Witch Metal Weathervane is beautifully detailed and is available as a garden stake or as a weathervane for the roof. For even spookier decor, get the Crescent Moon Vampire Bats Metal Weathervane!

We also have several beautiful copper weathervanes in our collection. The Strutting Rooster Full-Size Copper Weathervane shows the same classic rooster form found on old farmhouses in rural New England. If the house or garden would look better with a weathervane that has a more modern look, you might like the Celebration Wine Bottle Copper Weathervane.

New Gargoyle Gifts for a Late Summer Garden

Ashes, the Gothic GargoyleThe dog days of summer are approaching and that could signal a time to make a few changes in backyard decor. Although we already have a huge selection of unique animal garden statues, beautiful garden fairies, and other decor to choose from, we also have several new arrivals that will add a unique touch to any backyard. Among those new arrivals are gargoyle figurines that add a fun look to the garden in addition to making wonderful gifts.

Victor the Vicious, Giant Gargoyle Sentry is a rough and tough, two foot tall gargoyle sculpture that looks right at home when set beside the back door. Get this detailed, intimidating gargoyle to entertain guests at your summer garden parties, or as a gift for a special person who appreciates everything Gothic. Victor also acts as wonderful decor in a night club, restaurants, and other places of business.

Ashes, the Gothic Gargoyle is another recent arrival. This classic, seated gargoyle is carefully crafted to resemble the old, weathered stone gargoyles that perch on old castles and Gothic cathedrals. Ashes will look right at home when set on top of Gothic furniture in the home, when used as decor in a bookstore or library, or as a cute little gargoyle sitting in the garden.

New and Unique Garden Statuary Gnomes

Bogey Burt Garden GnomeGnome statues are one of the more popular types of modern garden decor. We see those cute, friendly little beings in our neighbor's flowerbeds, many a backyard in town, and in our own gardens. It's easy to see why gnomes are popular because after all, what's not to like about gnomes? They sport brightly-colored clothes, have a cheerful appearance (except for our Zombie Gnombie), and wear funny, pointed hats. In other words, they are quaint, pleasant garden decor. However, the common nature of garden gnomes can also make it tough to find garden gnome sculptures that stand out from the crowd. This is why we carry a variety of garden gnomes that will always make a fun, unique statement in any yard.

Two of our new arrivals are no exception and make a fine gift for anyone who appreciates garden decor. The Bogey Burt Garden Gnome Statue has traded his garden spade for a driver and has the same look of concentrated hope on his face as the most serious of golfers. Bogey Burt will look perfect in the backyard of anyone who loves to walk the greens, on a putt-putt course, or at a country club.

Gezundheit Gunther Sneezing Garden Gnome Statue makes for a cute change from the hard working, smiling garden gnome. The bird on his finger better get ready to fly because it surely will with the huge sneeze coming its way!

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.

The following animal resin garden statues are just a few of many entertaining sculptures in our collection:
