Remember Loved Ones with a Garden Angel Statue and Garden Marker

Always in our ThoughtsWe remember loved ones in a number of ways but one of the most intimate is with garden decor. Although you could put beautiful garden statuary on display that reminds you that special person, there is also garden decor designed to pay tribute to loved ones. Such remembrance decor can take the shape and form of angels, benches, and other statues. Garden markers in particular are a suitable, easy type of remembrance decor to put on display because they are just the right size and demeanor. They are also inscribed with endearing messages that remind us of how loved ones have touched and affected our lives.

The Mother's Garden Memorial Garden Marker is shaped like a heart, etched with a detailed flower, and inscribed with words that connect the loving bond shared between mother and child. Like other memorial garden markers, this cast stone item will last for decades if not centuries. Our garden markers also range from the simple yet sweet Always in our Thoughts Angel Wing Marker to the larger and more elaborate I Thought of You with Love Angel Cast Stone Memorial.

Of course, you could also go with any number of angel statues including memorial angels like the beautiful Angel of Grief Monument Statue, and the Divine Memories Angel Sculptural Monument.

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.

Quaint Resin Garden Statues for a Peaceful Yard

We might use the backyard to go for a daily swim, to host fun garden parties, and other activities but at the end of the day, it is first and foremost a place of peace. The garden acts as a sanctuary not just for plants and animals that live there, but also for people. We go to the garden to revive our senses and relax, and this is why quaint garden statues make such an excellent fit for any backyard.

Pancho the Burro Planter SculpturePancho, the Burro Planter Sculpture is fun, easy-going garden statuary that blends the adorable look of a baby Burro with the natural beauty of flowers. It's up to you to put the flowers or other plants in the planter but once you do, Pancho will show them with pride.

The Carrot Crew Rabbit Statue is another adorable sculpture that adds a fun, quaint touch to any backyard. Put this cute little animal yard sculpture near your carrots, next to a flowerbed, or wherever it can put a daily smile on your face. Pair those bunnies with the Rabbit with Box Birdfeeder Statue to feed the backyard birds and act as a reminder that the garden is a peaceful place to rejuvenate and enjoy nature.

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.

The Soothing Sounds of Garden Statuary

Spirit of the Ocean Two Tier Seahorse FountainMany resin garden statues are static, high quality depictions of animals, deities, fairies, and other interesting subjects. They showcase their beauty and details in fine, still form and are meant to be admired at length from every angle. However, some garden statues are more dynamic in nature and make use of sound just as much as the fine appearance of a beautiful sculpted form. One such type of sculpture is the garden fountain. Outdoor water garden fountains combine the soothing sounds of water with intricate sculpted details to add a naturally elegant touch to any backyard.

The Spirit of the Ocean Two-Tier Seahorse Fountain makes use of two basins, gently falling water, and sculpted seahorses to add a soothing touch to the garden. The sounds and appearance of this unique garden statue will remind guests of quiet seashores, and the sounds of the endless sea.

Buy and save on the Bright Waters Otters Garden Fountain Sculpture for a work of art that combines gentle falling water, illuminated basins, and detailed sculptures of inquisitive otters. The natural appearance of this fountain makes it ideal for backyards that are decorated with animal garden sculptures, abundant vegetation, garden fairies, and fantasy-themed decor.

Three Reasons for Using Garden Décor with a European Flair

European gardens are well known for hosting beautiful garden statuary, sculpted hedges and topiary, and stunning fountains. Large, extensive gardens in major cities also display a variety of antique sculptures, some of them from the Victorian era, others from older times. There are several reasons for using similar decor in your own garden, including the following three reasons:

Ascending Angel SculptureA classic, classy appearance: Few garden statues are as distinguished as a classic stone garden angel or other sculptures that would look right at home in the garden of an old European estate. The fantastic Ascending Angel Sculpture is just one of several classic angels in our collection.

 

  • They add character to any backyard: Even one European-style garden sculpture will transform the character of your backyard. Put statues like Hebe, the Goddess of Youth, or a fine replica of the famous Venus de Milo sculpture in the yard and your place takes on an entirely different, more distinguished appearance.

 

  • Wonderful resin statues for a great price: Although the statues in our collection are fit to be put on display in large estate gardens throughout Europe, they are far more affordable than any antique sculpture. Our Marcellus Sculpture, a high quality replica of a Roman era work of art, is one such statue.

These factors, along with the legends that accompany them, also turn dragon statues into striking, stand-out decor for any backyard. Put a dragon in the yard and your place will look a bit more like a regal keep than an average home. It will show guests and neighbors that you appreciate the fantasy genre, Medieval decor, and ancient tales.

Animal Garden Sculptures that Leap into Action

Jungle Cat Leaping Bengal Tiger StatueAnimal sculptures can show easy-going, peaceful scenes from nature, the majesty of a maned African Lion, or cute farm animals. Although there is nothing wrong with animal statues that happen to be adorable, cute, or depictions of animals at rest, some of us would also love to have animal sculptures that celebrate their energy, speed, and other wild qualities. Such dynamic statues add personality to the garden in the form or wild, savage beauty and natural drama, especially when they seem to leap into action.

The "Jungle Cat" Leaping Bengal Tiger Statue is one such sculpture. Although few people have witnessed the leap of a Tiger and lived to tell about it, this stunning statue allows you to put that rare display of strength and beauty on display in your own backyard. If you would rather go for an animal sculpture with a more classic appearance, the "Unbridled Power" Equestrian Horse Statue shows the powerful elegance of a stallion rearing back on its hind legs. Both of these animal statues make an impact when placed near the entrance to the backyard or when showcased as centerpiece items.

Although the two sculptures mentioned above are certainly majestic, the Large Leaping Sea Dolphin Statue is one of the most stunning animal statues in our collection. This wonderful depiction of a leaping dolphin is an excellent sculpture for the lobbies of hotels and restaurants, and big backyards.

See our extensive collection of animal garden statues to find the best animal statue for your home or place of business.
