Garden Statue Buyer’s Guide
The design of your garden statue very much depends on where you are going to put it and what style suits your space. Our list has a wide range of designs and styles so I’m confident you will find something that fits your space well.
Garden statues come in a range of sizes from cute little fairies to giant horses so you can choose a design that suits your space perfectly. Having fine details really elevates the look of the statue helping to draw the eye and create a nice focal point.
There are a few main material choices that make garden statues.
Firstly, a common way to make a garden statue is with cast stone. This is an artificial stone that creates a very effective looking statue. It also creates a strong and durable statue suitable for outdoor use.
The second way is similar to cast stone however real crushed stones are used in the casting process. This gives a really natural look because the real stones will have natural variations in them which will show through in the finished product.
The third main material used is metal. Commonly used metals include aluminium for its strength, rust resistance and lightweight nature to steel which is very strong and weather resistant. Metal also gives you a stylish contemporary finish.
Weatherproofing is an important part of ensuring that your garden statue can cope with the elements for many years to come.
For statues that use crushed or cast stone, an extra component called designer’s resin is often added. This is important as it adds frost protection to the stone. When water freezes it expands and could crack a stone statue. The designer’s resin takes the space that could be occupied by water and prevents this happening.
Metal statues are naturally strong and durable allowing them to withstand the elements well.
Both metal and stone statues can be coated with special protective paints or varnishes. This helps them to even further resist the effects of weather. Often these coatings makes them easier to wipe clean too.
The durability of your statue will depend on the material and coating used. All of the statues in our list are durable and weather resistant.
