Which Stone Garden Sculpture Looks Best in Your Backyard?

Madame & Monsieur EscargotWhen it's time to decorate the garden with backyard decor, we sometimes realize that it's also time to buy a new garden statue or two. That realization might come from noticing that the backyard looks rather empty with just one or two sculptures, that the statues currently on display in the garden look old and worn, or that the backyard would look better with a new decorating theme. However, once you realize that the garden is in need of new statuary, you then have to pick out the best statuary for the yard.

The easiest way to find the best animal yard sculpture, fountain, or other garden statue is to browse the Design Toscano site. There are literally hundreds of unique garden statues that are arranged in several distinct categories, and an easy to use search function. For example, if the backyard could use an animal statue for the side of the pool, check out our collection of wild animal statues. The Baby Fur Seal Statue is a nice option as is the brightly colored Madame & Monsieur Escargot, Enormous Garden Snail Statue Set.

If the backyard trees could use a bit of decor, you might want to decorate them with striking greenmen sculptures like Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture or even "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue!

However, if a classic garden statue would look best, we have a large selection of classic statuary to choose from including a large sculpture of Thalia, Muse of the Garden.

Unique Statues for Garden and Gothic Décor for the Home

Zen, Garden GnomeIt's easy to find decor for the home and garden but it's not so easy to find unique, high quality items for low prices. Well, not so easy unless you already know where to shop for them. You won't find detailed, beautiful animal garden statues, the best selection of stone garden angels, nor unique objets d'art for the home at the nearest big box store. You might find a few nice items after scouring stores for hours but even then, they are going to cost more than you probably want to pay. The easiest place to shop for high quality decor is at Design Toscano simply because we have a huge selection of unique, high quality items for great prices.

For example, if you feel like buying a new garden gnome but would much rather have a gnome that stands out from the crowd, you just might like the cute "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue. Although this gnome would rather meditate than work in the garden, he hasn't relinquished his white beard, pointed red hat, and other typical gnome attire. Complement his search for higher consciousness with the "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue.

As for interior decor, you will find hundreds of exquisite and stunning items in our Basil Street Gallery as well as such high quality Gothic-themed decor as the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table and the Chateau St. Roche Sculptural Wall Mirror.

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.

A Stone Garden Sculpture for a Unique Backyard

Blushing Babel, The Bashful DragonUnique garden statuary is needed for a unique backyard. An average, everyday sculpture just won't do for gardens that are decorated with carefully sculpted Bonsai vegetation, that make use of an exquisite Japanese rock garden, or have greenmen statues on some of the trees. The same can be said for backyards that already make use of our beautiful animal garden statues or one of our classic Bigfoot statues. Such backyards look best with statues that are both enchanting and unique, and the best place to find them is at the Design Toscano site.

The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue adds an intriguing Medieval touch to the garden. Put this lawn swimming dragon next to one of your fountains or on a stone garden wall for full effect. It can be complemented with any number of equally fantastic resin garden statues, including such unique sculptures as Apex, the Winged Dragon and "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue.

The "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue is a one of a kind animal yard statue that will put a smile on your face every day of the week. This fun frog is just about guaranteed to be a topic of conversation at all of your summer garden parties and looks even better when paired with the exotic "Jungle Forest Tree Frog" Statue.

Give the Backyard a Unique Down Under Look with Australian Animal Garden Statues

Kouta, The Climbing Koala SculptureThe garden decorating season is here and most of us mark this time of the year by planting vegetables and flowers in the backyard and shopping for new resin garden statues. We all want to find the best deals on garden statuary and make use of decor that lends a unique look to the backyard but this can be a challenge when you already have a good selection of statues to choose from. This year, instead of buying a new stone garden angel, you may want to consider statues of Australian animals. There are few places on the planet that have as many unique and signature animals as Down Under and any of those creatures will give your garden a unique, exotic look.

Instead of putting a statue of a mischievous squirrel in your favorite backyard tree, decorate it with Kouta, the Climbing Koala. This realistic animal garden statue is nearly as adorable as the actual Eucalyptus munching animals that add charm to Australian woodlands. It can also be displayed on a garden wall.

Complement Kouta the Koala with another wild, signature animal of the Australian outback, the kangaroo. The Kangaroo and Joey Australian Outback Statue is as large as the actual hoppers that spring across the Australian landscape. Put this life-like beauty in the garden and neighbors will wonder where you managed to find such an amazing pet.

The Top Two Places to Put a Tiger Sculpture on Display

Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger SculptureTigers are one of the most fantastic creatures on the planet. These charismatic predators mesmerize with a blend of beauty, power, and grace. Their beautiful orange and white, black-striped coat helps keep them hidden as they stalk the tall jungle grass, and they use sheer, raw power to take down animal prey as large as Water Buffalo. For many people, these big cats are both respected and revered, and act as inspiration for a variety of art forms, including the stone garden sculpture.

Although a quality statue of a Bengal Tiger will make a statement no matter where it is put on display, it takes on a truly regal appearance in the following situations:

  • Just past the entrance to the garden: A tiger statue is a spectacular means of welcoming any garden guest but it will have even more impact when placed 20 or 50 feet past the entrance. Place a cherub or some other, more easy-going statuary at the entrance to the backyard to get their guard down,and then confront guests with a big, spectacular tiger statue like the Grand-Scale Wildlife Animal Collection: Bengal Tiger Statue.
  • A tiger to welcome guests to a business: The other best place to put a tiger on display is at or near the entrance to a business. If the reception area is large enough or has some green space, the same big Bengal Tiger from the backyard can be put on display. For smaller areas of green space, try the Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger Sculpture or a super cute Bengal Tiger cub.

New Outdoor Garden Water Fountains at Design Toscano

Spirit of the Ocean Two Tier Seahorse FountainEvery garden could use a fountain. Garden fountains put the crowning touch on backyard decor because these sculptural works of art incorporate both artistic and natural beauty. They also add that extra bit of natural soothing sound that helps us relax at the end of a long day. At Design Toscano, we offer a large selection of sculptural fountains because we are well aware of the important role they play when it comes to garden decor. We also regularly update our selection of garden fountains to fit a wide variety of decorating needs.

The "Spirit of the Ocean" Two-Tier Seahorse Fountain is a striking, unique piece that pays homage to the sea with several sculpted seahorses. This fountain works very well in a garden that features other ocean-themed decor, including the "Giant Red King Crab" Sculptural Chair.

The "Copper Falls" Cascading Garden Fountain is modern decor highlighted by beautiful burnished copper, flowing water, and smooth river stones. This artistic fountain will look great in any garden but looks especially nice in backyards with garden fairies, and contemporary decor.

If you have an Asian-themed garden, or want to stick with nature-themed decor, the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain is ideal. This soothing work of art uses seven, sculpted resin bamboo pillars of different heights to fill the garden with the gentle sounds of falling water.

Resin Garden Statues to Honor the Memory of Loved Ones

Angels of Alghero Religious StatuesGarden statuary can be used for more than decor. While we do put high quality animal garden sculptures, garden angels, and other classic sculptures into a garden or backyard to help beautify it and give it character, we can also use religious statues for inspiration and paying homage to our belief systems. We can put in outdoor garden water fountains to bring the soothing sound of falling water into the backyard, and the permanence and beauty of sculptures make them perfect for remembering loved ones who have passed away.

The Angel of Grief Monument Statue is a classic piece that was designed by William Wetmore Story in memory of his dearly departed wife. Similar sculptures are seen in cemeteries and gardens to this day because they encapsulate the grief we feel upon losing a loved one. This statue pairs well with the Angels of Alghero Religious Statues and the stunning Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue.

Cast stone memorial garden benches are another excellent means of remembering loved ones with garden decor. We have a variety of cast stone benches in our collection that can be personalized with the name of the dearly departed. The In Our Hearts Forever Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is one such item that reminds us of the love we still feel for the departed with a beautiful phrase.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Animal Garden Statues as Garden Benches

Gothic RoundaboutThose of us who have gardens are fortunate indeed. We can use that green space to grow vegetables, try our hand at cultivating rose bushes, feed the birds, throw wonderful backyard parties, or just sit back and read a book under the shade of a favorite tree. No matter how we like to enjoy the beauty of the backyard, it will always be a welcome sanctuary for rest and relaxation. Certain types of decor can aid with relaxation, especially beautiful sculpted benches. An ornate steel bench like the Gothic Roundabout makes a classic artistic statement in any backyard but if the garden could use a stone bench that also acts as an animal sculpture, you might want to add the Giant Neoclassical Swan Garden Bench to your garden statue collection. The fine details and swan-sculpted arms of this big Victorian bench will turn it into centerpiece garden furniture decor.

For a smaller, yet equally regal place to sit and read a book, put the Grand Lion of St. John's Square Sculptural Bench into the garden. The powerfully sculpted lions that make up the legs of this bench give this garden decor a truly royal appearance. Get this wonderful garden bench for the backyard or put it in the reception area of a hotel or restaurant to make clients feel like royalty.

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.

Three Tips to Pick Out the Best Animal Yard Statue for your Garden

Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub StatueAnimal garden sculptures come in many forms and sizes. With so many types of statues to choose from, it can be challenging to pick out the best decor for the garden. The following are three tips to help everyone from beginning gardeners to veterans in backyard decor pick out the best animal statues for their decorating needs:

  • Think about the size of the garden: Whether looking for an animal statue or a stone garden angel, this is one of the most basic things to consider. Size the statue accordingly because you don't want to pick out a statue that ends up dominating the entire garden. Instead, choose animal sculptures that will highlight the beauty of the yard without "taking over". A medium sized animal statue like the Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub Statue is a good bet.
  • Cute or fierce?: While you don't have to choose between the cutest statue and the scariest, gardeners do need to think about the type of animal personality portrayed in their garden. A Meerkat statue is ideal for those in search of a a curious, cute animal.
  • Wild or domesticated: In general, animal statues can also be separated into one of these two categories. Keep this in mind to decide if you would rather see a Swan of the Lake statue in the garden as opposed to a Prowling Spotted Jaguar statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of the animal garden statues in our collection when purchased by today, March 28th.
