Which Sculptures for Outside Are Suited for a Natural Garden?

Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal SculptureAs our backyards come back to life after the long, cold winter, we can reflect on some different types of gardens. Large estates can host a menagerie of classic garden statuary, animal garden sculptures, and other garden decor. More common, medium-sized gardens can show sculpted hedges, a stone garden angel here and there, and a few other resin garden statues. Small, urban gardens might not have as much space for grand scale statues but do have enough room for a few garden gnomes and potted flowers.

There are also gardens that put the focus on nature. These are the backyards where invasive plants are removed and native plant species are cultivated. Some garden space might also be left to grow on its own and provide more habitat for birds and small animals. Certain types of garden statues are well suited for these types of gardens and include such animal statues as the Mother Doe and Fawn and the Mother Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal Sculpture. Both of these realistic and beautiful garden statue sets look right at home in a wilder, more natural garden. Another statue that looks right at home in a wilder garden is the Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

Get Ready for Spring with Colorful Animal Garden Statues

The Regal Peacock Garden SculptureAfter a winter that has been one of the coldest on record, the warm airs of spring will be a welcome change indeed. It might be cold outside today, but we can expect much warmer weather in a few weeks. When that happens, it will be high time to check out the garden and think of how we can decorate for the season. Putting garden fairies in the backyard or decorating with a cute baby animal yard statue is always a good bet but bright colors are even more important when decorating for the spring.

Yellows, shades of orange, and bright cheerful blues can compliment the same hues of the rainbow that show themselves on the branches of flowering trees, bushes, and tulips. The Regal Peacock Garden Sculpture is a good choice to showcase these and other colors during spring and on through the summer. Pair it with the bright blues and yellows on the Polly in Paradise Parrot Sculpture to add a dash of spring color to your favorite backyard tree.

The "Giant Garden Gecko Lizard" Statue will also add a touch of very welcome green to an early spring backyard. This sleek and unique animal garden statue also acts as beautiful wall decor for the garden or inside the home.

A Pair of Spectacular Sculptures for Outside

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe StatueSome garden statuary lends a bit of extra color to the flower beds, other garden statues are meant to be cute but unobtrusive, and outdoor garden water fountains combine the beauty of a sculpture with the natural music of falling water. However, a few choice garden statues have such a spectacular bearing that they seem to fall into a category of their own. These are the statues that act as a centerpiece work of art for any garden, and are the sculptures fit to be decor in the finest of hotel lobbies and dining establishments.

We have several such works of art in our collection of resin garden statues. One of those magnificent sculptures is the Giant Scale Easter Island Ahu Akivi Moai Monolith Statue. This magnificent sculpture is carefully and closely modeled after the huge stone head statues that dot the countryside of the most remote inhabited island on the planet. Put this garden statue in the yard or in a place of business and people will be talking about it for years.

It might be tough to match the stunning appearance of an Easter Island Monolith statue but our Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue comes close. This fantastic animal yard statue literally stands out in any yard on account of its eight foot height!

Find these and hundreds of other fantastic sculptures for outside at Design Toscano today.

Garden Statuary Ideas for Libraries and Reading Rooms

The British Reading Fairy Garden StatueSpring might be just around the corner, but for many of us, it's still just as freezing cold as it was a couple weeks ago. Although you shouldn't let the cold weather fool you into not getting ready for spring with new resin garden statues, it's easy to understand why it can seem pointless to look for sculptures for outside. If the cold weather is putting a damper on shopping for outdoor statues today, you might want to look for sculptures suited for other areas of the home or place of business. One of those places is the library or reading room and the right types of garden statues can be wonderful for augmenting the quiet, enchanting atmosphere of those and other places dedicated to books.

The British Reading Fairy Garden Statue is perfect decor for the library. With open book on her lap, the attention of our little garden fairy is absolutely taken by reading her favorite story. Display this beautiful, classic statue in the library to help put the focus on books.

Busts are also very much suited to the library or reading room. The Caesar Augustus of Prima Porta Grand-Scale Sculptural Bust may inspire visitors to read up on ancient Roman history while the William Shakespeare Grand-Scale Sculptural Bust pays homage to one of the all time theater and literature greats.

Find these and other high quality resin garden statues that look just as good inside the home as in the garden at Design Toscano today.

Sculptures for Outside Include Animals, Angels, Fountains, and More

Zairen, the Zebra SculptureOne of the beautiful things about garden statuary is the huge variety of forms they take and themes they can follow. While one can always stick to decorating the backyard with garden gnomes and garden fairies, nowadays, we can also put such statues on display as gargoyles, beautiful angels, and highly detailed animals. If the garden could use a change in decor, and lacks an animal yard statue, you might want to consider putting something like Zairen the Zebra Sculpture on display. This striking, realistic sculpture adds a beautiful, exotic look to any backyard and looks even better when complimented with a fun animal statue like "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue.

If you already have enough animal statues in the yard, you might want to go for a statue or two that is a bit more classic in nature. A stone garden angel such as the Angel of Patience Sculpture and the cute In God's Grace Angel Statue are just two of many fine angel statues in our collection.

Or, perhaps the time has come to put a sculptural fountain in the backyard. The Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is a majestic fountain fit for the most elegant of gardens while the Quenching a Big Thirst Sculptural Fountain entertains with its big, thirsty Saint Bernard.

Get Ready for Spring with Greenmen Sculptures

Oak King Greenman Wall SculptureIt's never too soon to get ready for spring. Although the front yard might be covered in snow, and the backyard trees look leafless and gaunt, spring will be here before you know it. It will be a relief to walk outside without having to wear a winter coat and an exciting time to get reacquainted with the backyard oasis. Although we have to wait for warm weather to do any degree of work in the garden, we don't have to wait to buy new resin garden statues. In fact, it's better to buy them now while you have plenty of time rather than when the garden needs your time during the spring.

When looking for new garden decor, there are literally hundreds of garden statues to choose from but some of the most evocative are the greenman sculptures. This unique type of decor literally puts a face on trees and dates back to pre-Christian times in northern Europe when people used to worship nature. The Oak King Greenman Wall Sculpture is a classic greenman item that lends an old, enchanting look to any garden. It will also look right at home in conjunction with Gothic decor. To decorate the walls with a pair of haunting greenman sculptures, put the Somerset Greenwoman & Greenman Sculptures on display.

The Best Garden Gargoyle Statue for a Gothic Garden

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel StatueAs the snow falls outside and we wait out the cold grip of winter, why not warm the heart by making plans for a spring garden? One idea is hosting a Gothic-themed garden instead of a backyard dotted with friendly garden gnomes and innocent animal garden statues. If you feel bad about keeping the gnomes in storage, you could always put a few, choice gnome statues on display while other parts of the garden are dedicated to fine Gothic statuary. However, no matter how you decide to decorate the backyard with Gothic-themed decor, don't forget the gargoyle sculpture. One or more of these classic Gothic statues are an absolute essential aspect of any Gothic-themed garden.

For a look that blends the storied appearance of a Medieval gargoyle with details that pay homage to horror classics, buy the Chained Cathedral Gargoyle Statue. When guests see this eerie sculpture in the garden, they will realize that they aren't walking into any ordinary castle. If you would like to add a regal yet somewhat intimidating Gothic touch to the backyard, put Gargoyle Sentinel Statues on display! Try the fantastic Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue and the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue for full effect. No matter which gargoyle statues you choose, don't forget to add another gothic gargoyle touch with Roland the Gargoyle Rain Gutter.

Find these and dozens of other fantastic garden gargoyle statues at Design Toscano today.

The Garden Fairy Statue as Interior Decor

"Dreamland Fairy" StatueGarden fairies are, despite their name, not just for the the garden. Sure, those lovely little statues do look wonderful in a garden setting but they can look just as enchanting in other places. Tales of the little folk don't just take place in gardens, woods, and fields. They also occur inside the home and even in places of business so it shouldn't come as any surprise that certain garden fairies look right at home as interior decor. With her innocent, child-like demeanor, the "Dreamland Fairy" could easily be mistaken for a cherub if it weren't for her butterfly wings. After she spends a summer of peaceful slumber in the backyard, bring this fairy inside to add an enchanting touch to a sun room or quiet den.

Fanny the Fairy Sitting Statue is another fairy sculpture that looks just as beautiful inside the home as she does outside in the garden. With dreamy eyes and relaxed posture, Fanny is clearly caught up in some magical day dream and thus helps to foster an atmosphere of peace and relaxation when put on display in a library, den, or other quiet corner of the home. Seat this beautiful little fairy statue on a bookshelf, pedestal, or other suitable spot.

Save 20% on these items, other resin garden statues in our fairy collection, and any of the quality decor on the Design Toscano site when purchasing today, December 16th.

The Top Two Places to Put a Gargoyle Sculpture on Display

Gargoyle figurines have been used as decor for centuries. At first, they played a role as functional decorations used for scaring off supposed evil spirits and enemies of churches and Gaston, the Climbing Gothic Gargoyle Statuecastles but since then, have morphed into Gothic decor meant to act as classic decorations for home and business. That said, as with any type of decor, you can't just put a gargoyle on display and expect it to look both intimidating and incredible. The place where a gargoyle is displayed affects the nature of the decor just as much as the level of experience and imagination of the artist who made it. The best duo of places to put a gargoyle sculpture on display are:

  • Next to an entranceway in the backyard: Gargoyles are sentinels and guardian statues by nature. Take advantage of those characteristics and put gargoyles just past the gate to the backyard and just outside the back door of your home. Gargoyle statues like the Florentine Gargoyle and the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel are perfect for this purpose.
  • Hanging from a wall: Gargoyles are at home on the ramparts and walls of a castle, old cathedral, and your home. They like to hang out in high places to better intimidate and maybe even swoop down upon anyone who dares enter into their territory. Buy Gaston, the Climbing Gothic Gargoyle Statue to decorate the walls of your home or business with a fantastic classic climbing gargoyle.

Exquisite Sculptures for Outside and the Interior of Home and Business

Empress Josephine's Dancer SculptureAlthough most garden statuary looks best when surrounded by the greenery of a big backyard, some statues look just as good inside the home. Certain outdoor sculptures can also act as fantastic, important decor for a business. After using such statues to help beautify the backyard during the summer, bring them inside to add character and charm to both the home and your business. Animal garden statues that look great in the backyard and then just as good or better as interior decor include such resin garden beauties as the "Veiled Chameleon" Statue and the Black Forest Bear Pedestal Table. The chameleon boasts textured, realistic details and several shades of green that add a unique natural touch wherever it is shown. Display it at a local business and kids of all ages will be talking about your unique decor. The bear table is excellent, fun, functional decor that helps bring life to any party. It also acts as a perfect drink and snack holder while watching football and basketball games in the comfort of your home.

Classic statues that fit the bill include Greenmen such as Bacchus, the God of Wine, and Emperor Josephine's Dancer Sculpture. Bacchus is excellent wall decor whether watching over a summer garden party, placed on the wall of a fine restaurant, or when used as fine unique decor for a dinning room. Emperor Josephine's Dancer adds a fun, cheerful touch no matter where this beautiful replica sculpture is displayed.

Outdoor Animal Statues that Look Just as Good Inside the Home

Playful Puppy Dogs StatueAnimal garden sculptures make for eye catching decor that can fit into any decorating theme. Statues of wild animals such as lions, tigers, or deer celebrate the beauty of the natural world while statues of squirrels, roosters, and other familiar animals give the yard a cozy, wholesome touch. Although animal statues tend to be viewed as outdoor decor, some sculptures can make just as beautiful a statement when displayed inside the home. Brutus the English Bulldog is one such statue. This fine resin statue captures the fierce yet comical appearance of an English Bulldog intent on protecting its favorite chewing shoe, bone, or flower patch. Put this quality animal yard statue just outside the back door during the summer and put it next to the television during the winter.

The Playful Puppy Dogs Statue also looks just as cheerful when placed in a sunny summer garden or admired inside the home. This beautiful little statue captures the cute and happy appearance of puppy dogs at play with fine, realistic details.

Climbing animal statues can also make excellent wall decor inside the home after they have graced the walls in the garden. One such sculpture is the Giant Garden Gecko Lizard. The glossy green hues and bright yellow toes of this striking, three foot long plus gecko sculpture will add a bright bit of color and character to the walls of your home.

Gargoyle Gifts for Halloween

Draga the Gargoyle Vampire StatueIt might still be warm outside but the cool, crisp days of autumn are just a few weeks away. As the weather gets cooler, many of us start to think about putting our favorite garden fairies, gnomes, and other resin garden statues back into storage. However, at the same time, we also need to start thinking about how we are gong to decorate the backyard for one of the most entertaining holidays of the year. Halloween is going to be here in the blink of an eye and a big part of that fun holiday is turning the backyard into a temporary display of haunting, frighteningly good decor.

This Halloween, instead of sticking to the same old cut-outs of ghosts, glow in the dark skeletons, and pumpkin-themed decor, reward yourself and friends with the gift of gargoyle figurines and get serious with your spooky display. Shock and impress guests with detailed and realistic gargoyles such as Draga the Gargoyle Vampire Statue. Not only does this finely carved fiend watch over your Halloween party guests, but it also wants to bite their necks and shows it with a sinister look and sharp fangs.

While Draga watches guests from a corner of the yard, greet them at the door with fantastic sentinel gargoyles such as Argos and Boden. The sharp, regal details, toothy maws, and impressive appearance of these gargoyle statues will tell guests that they have just walked into the best Halloween party in town.

Resin Garden Statues for People Who Love the Great Outdoors

Howling Lone Wolf Garden StatueThe summer months are ideal for getting outside and exploring parks, wildlife refuges, and national forests. The warm weather makes it much easier to experience the natural beauty of woodlands, grasslands, mountains, and marsh than the winter months. There are also more birds to see, you might catch a glimpse of baby deer or even a Black Bear, and camping with the family beneath a star-studded sky is priceless. After coming back to civilization and home, you can put a bit of that wild, natural beauty into the backyard with the right type of animal garden statues.

These are sculptures that capture the essence of Earth's wild places with detailed depictions of animals that only occur in wilderness areas. Bears are one such animal and although populations of the Black Bear have increased to the point where they sometimes show up in suburban neighborhoods, this large mammal is most common in wild, road less regions. This crafty animal eats just about anything it can find or catch, including fish from a clear mountain stream. The Expert Fisherman Black Bear Statue shows this animal's love for fish with amazing, realistic details.

One of the best symbols of the great outdoors is the Gray Wolf, an intelligent canine only found in the wild, untamed forests of the north. Although it's difficult to catch a glimpse of this shy, clever animal, the howls of the wolf are frequently heard during nights in the boreal forest. Get the Howling Lone Wolf Garden Statue to add a wild and dramatic touch to the backyard.
