Hi. These are imported by a company called Border Concepts that sells only to retail nurseries. They, or something very similar, should be available in most good garden shops and nurseries. If you don't see them, they can probably order them for you. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Unwind in Your Own Private Garden Escape
Establish rhythm in your garden. We all have an internal rhythm. Some of this is static, a part of who we are, and some of it changes according to our circumstances and moods. Heart and breathing rates are two of the most noticeable forms of internal rhythm, but your natural stride and style of walking and that melody that continually plays in your head are other forms of your own personal rhythm. You can introduce the concept of rhythm in your garden by repeating certain key elements, as was done with these sculptural ceramic orbs. By spacing them farther apart, you can slow down your rhythm, creating a more leisurely garden experience. Closer spacing may actually decrease your sense of relaxation by making the space feel busier and more congested. Since these orbs alternate from side to side along this path, the eye is drawn down to a hidden part of the garden. Why? Because rhythm is established, and this rhythm resonates with your internal rhythm. If you've ever thought to yourself, "This garden speaks to me," rhythm is probably the reason.Tip: When doing a rhythmic installation such as this, odd numbers of items are always more pleasing to the eye.
Becky Harris added this to Cobalt Gets the Red Carpet Treatment
Cobalt goes to the garden. Glass spheres transform this rustic path into an art walk.Cobalt works with all sorts of garden styles, from traditional to contemporary. Test it out: Fill cobalt planters with red geraniums.
