How to find the best garden sculptures 

Choosing the best garden sculpture isn’t tricky—with a few tips and tricks. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the choices of garden sculptures available, here are some things you should consider before buying one. 

Style: Before choosing a garden sculpture for your home, ask yourself how you would describe your personal style or the style you want to be reflected in your garden. Do you have more of a humorous outlook on life? Would you rather choose a sculpture that’s more decorative than one that tells a story? Choose a sculpture based on these questions to start your journey to choosing the perfect sculpture. 

Weather resistance: Since your garden sculpture will live outside, you will need to make sure it is completely weather resistant. Make sure your sculpture is made from materials like resin or stone and is painted in UV-resistant paint so that you can get the longest life out of your sculptures. 

Solar power: If you would like to choose a garden sculpture that lights up during the night, choose one that is either solely or partially powered by solar energy. Looking for an item like this ensures you won’t have to replace the batteries in your sculpture too often. It is also an environmentally-friendly thing to do. 


Now that you know how to choose the right garden sculpture for your garden, you can now sit in your yard and enjoy it. Show off your newfound purchase to friends and family members. You could even surprise them with a neat-lit garden show before bed.
