Garden statuary and ornaments can greatly enhance the finishing touches of any garden if they are used appropriately.

There are several factors to take into account before determining the type of ornaments or statues for your garden.

The size of your garden will dictate how big of a sculpture or ornament to fit the area. Draw the eyes to a focal point instead of cluttering the garden with too many ornaments. Ensure that both the plant selections and ornaments blend well with each other.

Decide a theme or style for your garden. This will help to simplify the selection process on buying the right garden ornaments. Styles can be classic / traditional, country style, Asian or even a fairytale themed. It all depends on individual preference, personality and the mood you aim to achieve in your garden.

Garden gnomes have been very popular among gardeners as well. They are usually small bearded male made of ceramic and commonly found in country-style garden decoration.

Contemporary ornaments can be simple yet modern and classy. Artistic gardeners may also opt for abstract sculptures or perhaps recycled objects such as old bicycle frames.

Bird feeders are great for supplying bird food to attract birds into the garden and in return, enjoy delightful birdwatching sessions at your very own yard.

Garden ornaments and statues are made of various materials from ceramic, stones, metal to timber and so on. Prices differ from each material but there is certainly something to suit your budget. However, it is helpful to find out how different materials can withstand various weather conditions and climate. While each may have its pros and cons, brass or stainless steel metal or stone seem to be more long lasting among others.
