When considering a piece of garden art, ask yourself these questions to help you pick out the perfect sculpture for you.

Where should I place the statue?

Is this piece going to be the focal point of a courtyard or scattered along a path? Is your garden pocket-sized or a grand estate? The amount of space that you allocate for your statue should help you decide which size garden statue to buy and the location that you intend to have your statue will help you decide which style as well. If you’re looking to decorate a lawn, consider some oversized garden spheres. Decorative trellises would complement a field of flowers nicely. For a more formal courtyard or parterre, perhaps a one-of-a-kind sculpture or ornament.

How do I decorate with garden sculptures?

Garden sculptures are available at all price ranges and in all styles. Make the decision a personal one. Carefully collect and curate pieces to create your own outdoor sculpture garden. Garden sculptures are also commonly used as religious symbols for outdoor meditation or prayer; and even good luck. Garden sculptures are fun hidden distractions that reveal your personal preferences and tastes in a way that vegetation and hardscape doesn’t. It can even reflect the decor of the interior of your house.

How do I care for my statues?

Depending on the material you select for your garden sculpture, there should be no real maintenance at all. These pieces are designed to withstand outside conditions, and the materials reflect that. For the most part, a high pressure wash with some mild soap is all that is necessary in order to cleanse the statue of dirt or other build up that may accumulate.
