Different types of garden ornaments and garden statues
Introducing variety into your garden is the whole point of buying outdoor ornaments, so it wouldn’t do if all of the products in this category looked the same. We’re product to say that the garden ornaments and garden sculptures category is one of the most diverse around! We’ve got endless variety here.
Many of our garden ornaments are based in some way around nature. You’ll find many appealing flowers, shrubs and animals in this category. Some are domestic animals which might visit your garden for real, like hedgehogs, chickens and rabbits; others are exotic creatures from warmer or colder climes.
Our range of garden statues ranges from contemporary, abstract pieces that will fascinate your garden party guests to reproductions of classical statues from antiquity and the European Renaissance. If you want to imbue your garden with rustic pagan charm, why not pick one of the garden ornaments based on English and Celtic folklore like The Green Man.
And of course we have that perennial favourite among garden statues, the garden gnome. There are tons of these diminutive yet characterful garden ornaments for sale in this OnBuy category! Some of the garden gnomes you’ll see here keep it classic with a pointed red hat and sea blue surcoat, but others are less traditional. Keep your eyes peeled for sunbathing gnomes, gnomes glammed up for a dance club and more!
Places to put your garden ornaments and garden sculptures
Deciding on which outdoor ornaments to buy is only half of your garden architectural journey. The other half is deciding where to put them! One of the best tips for placing garden ornaments is to group them thematically around an appropriate part of the garden. For some outdoor ornaments, the location obvious. If you’ve bought an ornamental fountain, you’ll need to place it so that it can access a source of water. (Check out our ponds and water features category for products that can help you with this!).
This isn’t the case for most garden ornaments, but not to worry - we can give you some quick placement tips! For instance, garden gnomes will look great winding their way down a garden path if you have one. If you’ve invested in some wooden mushrooms or toadstools there’s no better location than close to a compost heap. There are too many different types of outdoor ornaments out there for us to create a comprehensive guide, but rely on your instinct, paired with a dollop of creativity and your garden will soon look astounding!
Garden ornaments and sculptures FAQs
What kind of garden ornaments look good?
Birdhouses and bird feeders make good garden ornaments in two ways. First, they look great by themselves; secondly, they attract birds, which also creates a peaceful outdoor ambiance. A bird bath will also help attract birds as not all birds will live in birdhouses. Ultimately, these kinds of garden ornaments serve two purposes - giving both yourself and nature the best of both worlds!
What are some examples of garden ornaments?
Some common garden ornaments include benches, pots, statuary objects, fountains, birdhouses, sundials, etc. You can find a wide range of garden ornaments on our website for both purely aesthetic and practical reasons.
What is the best way to clean garden ornaments?
A soapy bucket of water and a sponge will work just fine. Use dish soap and ensure it's suitable for wildlife - especially if you're cleaning a birdbath or bird feeder. However, most items meant for the garden are waterproof and can be easily rinsed with a hose to budge built-up dirt.
Which type of garden sculptures are unaffected by weather?
Metal sculptures do nicely in outdoor settings, but some of the most long-lasting garden ornaments are bronze sculptures. Having stood the test of time, they weather beautifully and acquire an attractive patina finish over time. Bronze sculptures are also heavy and will not be affected by strong winds, but they can be quite expensive due to their metallic construction which is made up of a combination of copper and tin.
How do you weatherproof garden ornaments?
To ensure your treasured garden ornaments last as long as possible (regardless of whether they're made from wood, metal, plastic or concrete), we recommend using some kind of waterproof barrier to prevent the elements from ruining them. With a choice of waterproof paint, waterproof sealer or wall sealer, there's a wide range of tools and solutions you can snap up to protect your outdoor ornaments.
