FAQ’s Garden Ornaments

Where should garden ornaments be placed?

The best place for a large garden ornament is to make it a focal point at the centre of the garden or at the end of a path. Alternatively place it in an area that might otherwise be missed.

How do you organise garden ornaments?

Buy ornaments which suite the style of your garden or create a little space where you can set a theme, for instance buy some Japanese ornaments to create a relaxation corner or fairy ornaments like mushrooms and little houses to make a secret garden.

What are the best materials for garden ornaments to be made out of?

Stone, resin or metal ornaments are durable and fairly weather resistant as they can survive the elements and will look more rustic over time. If you buy plastic ornaments or other less durable materials try to find shaded, roofed areas to place them.

I hope this list of the best metal garden ornaments was helpful.
