1. Throwing a garden party without some appropriate outdoor garden art would be a real tragedy. That's why we've got a stellar collection of garden art, featuring outdoor sculptures, outdoor wall art plaques, hanging wall art, fountains and sundials to spice up your garden better than your home-grown jalapenos.
2. Garden art is not a specific kind of art, but everyone follows their own conventions. Some might say they wouldn't display some kind of contemporary outdoor sculpture among their flowers and vegetables, but would lean toward something more conservative. Think small animals and dwarfs. Of course, it's all a matter of taste. So, please, go for cubist impressionism if you are so inclined.
3. A recent trend in garden art and outdoor art in general is windblown or otherwise mobile art. This genre, called kinetic art, really draws attention to itself and is available in varieties suitable for all kinds of tastes.
4. But if you're more of a traditionalist, don't fret, you'll still have scores of outdoor yard art in more common themes to choose from. Browse our offerings and read some of our informative articles about how to choose the right garden sculpture or outdoor garden wall art for you.
5. Many opt for the stone, concrete or synthetic stone sculpture for their garden. Often these are the least expensive, because they can be made with relative ease via forms and modern production techniques. If you truly want to distinguish your garden, though, take a look at our outdoor bronze sculptures, and brass and copper offerings, too.
6. Bronze is very popular with cast metal sculptures and, as such, are often the least expensive. When properly treated they retain their color indefinitely, but you may prefer the natural patina they assume with age.
7. Copper, as we're sure you are aware, is likely going to be the most expensive option you consider. Copper outdoor wall art consists of durable and attractive pieces that can be colored in many ways and are relatively easy to form. Because of this, the breadth of possible shapes make it a perfect choice for creative, impressionistic sculpting.
8. Iron is also a common material when it comes to outdoor garden art, and because of its abundance, you won't feel it quite so heavily in your pocketbook. Often steel (an iron allow) will be lightly rusted and then treated to maintain that look. The resulting appearance is akin to leather, making for a truly interesting visual impact.
9. Contemporary outdoor sculpture has taken off in recent years and there is no reason you shouldn't reap the fruits of this sculpting renaissance. With a little information at your disposal and some careful searching, you can find a piece that will not only enhance your experience with your garden but also increase the value of your home.
