Outdoor Garden Sculpture Types
A garden sculpture is a centerpiece and center of attraction of the garden and plays an important part of the garden exterior. There are some very elegant options available, and they come in many different materials, from metal, wood, or stone to poly-resin. It is important that garden sculptures can stand up to the elements, so choose a material that will provide long lasting beauty. Wood sculptures are attractive, but if you choose wood, make sure it is treated regularly with a good sealer. A garden sculpture run the range from functional to ornamental, and some are dual purpose, such as faux rocks that contain lights. Other options include birdbaths, fountains, statues, and even sculpted school mascots to be displayed in gardens or courtyards. Garden sculptures can also be custom made or homemade. Have one designed especially for your garden and incorporate your own designs, a favorite object, or a monogram.
Some people fashion “junk” into garden sculptures, which proves that one man’s trash can easily become another man’s, or woman’s, treasure. Artists use all sorts of objects, from copper tubing and other metals to wood, glass, and mosaic tiles. A garden sculpture can add another dimension to your already beautiful garden, whether they do so by adding something more whimsical or by lending an air of formality and elegance.
