Are We Selecting The Right Statue for Our Garden

In spite of the fact that there are numerous statues to choose from, but the truth is that not all will fit well in your garden. You can end up choosing the wrong statue size, material or even design.

So the biggest challenge is to choose the right kind of statue for your garden which is in tune with your garden looks and theme as well.

It should not look awkward or rather unwanted in your garden space. Rather you need to choose one which will simply be an addition to your other garden elements.

Appropriate Planning: Before you buy the outdoor statue appropriate planning is a must. You need to consider specifically the area where you would like to place the statue. The space leading to the statue too matters.

You need to decide whether you would like to see the statue at the end or in the middle of the garden. Your main focus in this regard should be to let the statue get the best sight for maximum effect.

Give Emphasis on Nature Too: When it comes to having a beautiful lawn or garden it is important that it should also have lovely birds, butterflies, bees along with the plants and flowers. Your aim should be to enhance all these aspects of nature.

So grow some plants closer to your statue which in turn will attract these birds and butterflies to the statue. It will look not just beautiful but have a pleasant effect too.

Size and Material of Statue Too Matters

The size of Statue Matters: In a way this is the most common mistake which people make when it comes to choosing the garden statue. Too big statue in a small garden won’t look good and vice versa. The secret is to choose an appropriate size of statue may be just 3-4 feet statue if your garden is small with low growing plants. Apart from that, never make the mistake of having too many statues in your garden. It is best to just have one or two.

Material of Statue Matters: You need to choose statues which are able to survive outside in different weather conditions without spoiling the look and beauty. Quality garden statues are made from stone, resin and metal which though are costly but give a classical look to the garden.
