As one of our staff put it, "Garden décor is the beautiful application of the practical." Birds need baths and vines need something to climb on, but there are many unique and creative ways to make that happen, and it's those details that will give your garden a special intriguing twist, an interesting and inviting addition.
Often, the addition of a piece of statuary that compliments your garden - be it contemplative or whimsical - will add year-round interest and a nice textural contrast in your landscape.
Both locations have an assortment of beautiful and creative solutions and additions for your garden:
We have many different types of plaques and wall ornaments; from nature-themed reliefs made from molded resin, to cut-out bird and plant images made by Haitian fair-trade artisans from recycled metal; from stars in metallic tones to richly painted fanciful mask wall planters. Something to accent your garden, whatever its style!
Classic wooden Adirondack chairs; round, metal bistro tables made for one or two with chairs to match; curved or formally rectangular concrete benches. However you want to linger in your garden or on your patio, we have the designs and materials to satisfy.
Fountains / Birdbaths
What is more soothing than the sound of water? One of the best bird-magnets, next to a feeder, is a bird bath. There are many different styles of both fountains and birdbaths available, from classical to modern, concrete to glazed stoneware. No matter if you have a backyard expanse or only a corner available; there are plenty of attractive sizes and shapes to choose from (no ground? How about a small wall fountain?)
To see the water of our Northwest skies dancing down the length of a rain chain maybe makes all that rain not so bad, after all. Different styles, different metals. Traditionally from Japan and hundreds of years old, a rain chain can capture and display this inevitable Portland weather in a beautiful way; a decorative alternative to a downspout, it disperses the rainwater in such a way that it is more gentle on the surrounding landscape and your house foundation!
Trellises & Arbors
Want something a little more fanciful than a plain wooden trellis? We also have elegant metal trellises in various shapes and sizes. Looking for an arbor to put at the entrance to your garden, or to separate one area from another?
We have some of strictly warmly stained wood, or more elaborately fashioned with metal in shapes reminiscent of tree branches. Though you could grow vines on some of these, you may find them too beautiful to cover up!
Find Great Statuary
Whimsical or contemplative, animal or architectural, classic or contemporary, the hard surfaces of statuary can lend a beautiful contrast to the plants in your garden, create focal points, express your personality.
