50 Fun and Eclectic Garden Sculptures To Add Character To Your Garden
Gardens don’t have to have only flowers, trees, and plants. They can also have eclectic garden sculptures.
One of the good things about gardens is that, like your homes, they can be designed according to your tastes too. You can make them as elegant as you want them or even as fun as your personality.
In this case, garden sculptures can add a personal touch to any garden.
Garden sculptures are three-dimensional artwork that is created from hard materials such as stone, metal, glass, or wood. Its size and shape depends on the owner, and can be as creative as you want them to be.
For some, garden sculptures can be made with deep meaning, others are simply chosen for aesthetics purposes. Some homeowners even find happiness when they see eclectic garden sculptures adorning their gardens. No matter what the reason is, garden sculptures are a great addition to any garden.
How To Choose The Perfect Sculpture for Your Garden?
With the wide variety of eclectic garden sculptures, choosing one (or two) can be overwhelming. That said, you have to know how to choose the perfect eclectic garden sculptures. Below are some helpful tips to choose the right eclectic garden sculptures:
1. Choose something you love. One of the best advice you’ll get when decorating your home, or your garden is choosing something you love. Otherwise, you wouldn’t get that satisfying feeling when you already have it.
2. Choose one that sticks with your home and garden style. Your garden may adopt exquisite flower bed designs with Asian influence, or perhaps you have adopted a modern home. Whatever your choice is, remember to choose your eclectic garden sculptures with a design that will complement that.
3. Choose the placement of the eclectic garden sculptures. Your garden sculptures will need the perfect location in your garden. That said, you need to consider where to place it. Larger pieces tend to become the focal point and will draw people’s eyes. Smaller sculptures on the other hand tend to bring people inside your garden. You can easily create a path to lead people to them.
4. Choose the right material. As mentioned before, eclectic garden sculptures come in a variety of materials. This includes marble, stone, bronze, slate, and even glass. The material of your sculpture has an impact on the garden design that you are aiming for. For example, marble and stones are well-suited for traditional and formal gardens. Metals like copper will add a wilder and look to any garden.
5. Decide on the size. Eclectic garden sculptures need to be proportional to the size of the garden. They also tend to make the garden feel smaller or larger.
6. Choose the lighting properly. The lighting in your garden will add a wow factor to your garden design. It will put your eclectic garden sculptures in the spotlight.
How To Preserve Garden Sculptures?
When deciding on having a garden sculpture, you must preserve it well. That said, here are some basic preservation tips to preserve your eclectic garden sculptures:
1. Check your local hardware stores to see what’s available in your area. If you intend to import from other areas/ country, remember that you’ll need to maintain them. It is then important to have the proper maintenance material on hand.
2. Pay attention to the material of your garden sculptures. Each material has unique properties and equally unique ways of being taken care of. Check that the weather (for example) is appropriate for them. Ceramic can break when exposing to extreme heat or cold. Same with porcelain.
3. Constantly clean your garden sculptures. It doesn’t have to be done every day. Just enough that the dirt, dust, and grime won’t stick and corrode with the material and its finishing (if any).
4. If broken, immediately have it mended. Often, when left unattended, breaks, tears, and cracks can get bigger. By then, it will be impossible to repair them.
