Why should you buy a garden statue?
As you’re creating your garden and landscaping plans, you might find that you want a decorative accent like a garden statue. It can showcase a theme or vibe that you want your entire garden to be about. Or maybe it’s a fun tradition to add something new to your garden each year. Whatever your reason may be, a garden statue can spruce up your garden.
What should you consider when choosing your garden statue?
- Garden Theme/Vibe: The theme and vibe of your garden should be the first criteria when you’re looking for a decorative statue. Are you looking for fun and whimsical, loud and bold, or simple and classic? Do you want something realistic or natural, or maybe something cartoonish? Whatever theme you are going for, you can find a statue to fit in your garden perfectly.
- Size: Garden statues can be large, but there are several options that are smaller and can either serve as accent decorations or main features in a petite garden.
What comes first, the flowers or the statue?
Often, people add statues to their garden of plants and flowers. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with choosing a statue first and getting your planting done later. Since most of these garden statues are light enough to move around, you can switch up your layout as you like.
