They can be set amongst shrubbery, partly obscured from view or highlighted and placed on columns or pedestals at various points throughout the garden. Choosing garden ornaments is an art, but it has its own set of rules. Here are some simple guidelines to help you chose the right garden furniture and decorations for your garden. Statues Statues can be used subtly throughout your garden, or in a more formal manner, depending on the figure. To make them stand out, consider the following:
- Keep in mind the plants you have. Arrange in a way that both figurine and plants work together and do not compete for attention.
- Limit the number of pieces per area. Make sure every piece can stand on its own and is easily viewable.
- Formal pieces, such as busts, are best in a formal setting, while charming little pieces are better in informal or country style gardens.
