Save on Tropical-themed Garden Statuary for Summer

Tiki Gods of Fire and WaterSummer days are here and these warm, lazy, fun-loving times are meant to be experienced outside the home. This is a well-known, practiced fact for anyone who loves the outdoors or enjoys spending time in the garden or backyard. Those of us who also love garden decor know that certain statues and other items are perfect for these wonderful summer days. Although just about any sculpture looks great in a summer garden, this is the best time of the year to put tropical-themed statues on display.

Tropical sculptures like the Tiki Gods of Fire and Water love the heat and show it with exotic, Polynesian flavor. With its blend of fire and water, this tropical fountain sculpture will act as centerpiece decor at any summer garden party.

Tropical decor also adds life to the backyard with bright, vibrant colors. The Tropical Crabs Wall Sculptures are painted with realistic reds, yellows, and blues shown by their live counterparts on tropical shores. These fun decorations add a colorful touch to garden walls, patios, the side of the pool, and vacation homes.

Complement the bright colors of those Tropical Crabs with the equally colorful and exotic Scarlet Macaws Wall Sculpture. This fine wall decor shows the same bright hues as the wild, spectacular macaws that fly over the jungles of Costa Rica, Brazil, and other tropical destinations.

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.

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.

Religious Outdoor Statues for a Christian Home

When adding decor to the backyard, we tend to use garden statuary that is a reflection of the things we enjoy, our attitudes, and our beliefs. For a Christian home, this decor can take the form of works that features phrases from the Bible, a white dove carrying an olive branch, sculptures for outside that feature a number of Christian symbols, and other types of decorations.

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenOur Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture is a wonderful, high quality, Smiling Christ statue that adds a cheerful touch to any garden. Put this happy, endearing sculpture in a prominent place as a reminder of your Christian faith. Complement this fine statue with a classic Holy Family Sculpture. This beautiful garden decor is closely modeled after similar Holy Family statues that have graced the peaceful gardens of Italian churches and estates for hundreds of years.

Many Italian gardens also display Christian-themed sculptures in miniature grottos and other quiet corners of the backyard. Our Meditation Grotto of Sorrento evokes the same sense of wonder with fine, hand-painted details.

No Christian-themed garden is complete without a stone garden angel. The Angel of Ravenna is one of many fantastic garden angels in our collection. Like the beautiful Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue, it was directly cast from antique statues found in an Italian cathedral.

Saturday is a Perfect Day to Decorate the Garden with Sculptures for Outside

Zairen, the ZebraToday is Saturday and many of us dedicate much of this day to the garden. After a long week of work, the garden is a welcome, relaxing place for rejuvenation, especially now that the warm weather has come back to town. How nice to sit out back on a favorite bench to read a good book, sip on a cold drink, or just watch the birds come to the feeder. However, most of us also have to spend some of that time trimming plants, taking care of vegetables, and just decorating the garden. That can be hard work at times but it always pays off and is usually much more relaxing than working at the office.

You will know when the backyard needs a new statue if one or more of the other statues start to look "old" or if the garden looks sort of empty. When that happens, the garden will probably look much better with a new statue or two. The best statue for the garden depends on your likes and how you feel like decorating it. That new sculpture might end up being something along the lines of a functional religious statue like the Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis Sculpture, or perhaps a beautiful animal yard statue like Zairen, the Zebra.

A quality stone garden angel can add a dramatic, classic look and we also have striking collection of greenmen sculptures to put a face on your favorite Maple, Oak, or Basswood.

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.

Put an Outdoor Garden Sculpture in the Backyard, and a Mounted Trophy Fish in the Den

"Swordfish" Wall Mount Trophy SculptureEvery backyard looks better with resin garden statues. It's important to keep this in mind with spring being right around the corner. Once that warm weather comes back to town, we can put our favorite stone garden angel on display, and showcase our latest additions to our animal garden statue collection.

Or, you could always just tell the truth and talk about how you picked out these incredibly life-like fish sculptures at the Design Toscano site.

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!

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.

I love this little girl so much that I couldn't put her outside. The quality is excellent.

The Doves of St. Mark's Square Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I first saw her in a friends garden in Dayton, Ohio. I couldn't stop looking at her. I asked the owner where he purchased her and he gave me the name of the catalog. I thought she would cost more than I could spend. I could not believe that she was under $4oo.oo. I ordered her that day. I received her within four days. I placed her in my sunroom where she remains today. Every morning I look at her and feel like she is letting the birds fly free. She reminds me of myself when I was a little girl.
