Are you looking for great gatekeeper statues for your garden? It is crucial to choose a lovely piece that creates a focal point in the garden while providing enjoyment. That means paying attention to the characteristics of the statue to ensure you have nothing but the best.
Here are five tips to help you select the best gatekeeper statues for your garden:
Gatekeeper statues are often created from various materials like clay, metal, concrete, plaster, cast stone, and stone. Some even combine multiple materials like bronze, lead, and rock. In colder climates, you need statues with durable materials like cast stone. Additionally, you may choose to buy sculptures made from bronze to garden in any climatic conditions. Bronze withstands the ravages of the elements by creating a protective layer, helping it last longer.

Statues for the garden come in all imaginable shapes, sizes, and styles. That's what you should look for, and pick a figure that matches your home and garden's style. If you have a preferred garden statue style, you have every reason to purchase it. It could be something created using the Asian style, abstract, art deco, and geometrical finish. That also applies to the heavily-ornamented human figures, classical motifs, and majestic animals from the classical style. In summary, you could choose anything between the religious, casual, fanciful, realistic, abstract, and classical.

How big would you like your gatekeeper statue to be? The primary determinant should be the space's size (garden or driveway) where you intend to install it. If the sculpture is too small, it may turn out to be too underwhelming. On the other hand, gigantic statues can also be overwhelming. So, proportionality should be the primary consideration when choosing gatekeeper statues. Even as you create a focal point, ensure it fits squarely in your space.

Instead of using just one statue, you could install several of them to create a sense of rhythm in your garden. In most cases, gatekeeper statues are best installed in pairs to add a unique curb appeal. You can also use groups of figures (in corners or the perimeter) to restrict your garden. Using groups of statues creates something similar to the artwork in a gallery.

Where do you intend to position the statue in your garden? You can use your location choice to add value and bring balance to your space. Finding the best location can only happen considering the immediate surroundings and matching with or complementing the statue. You should ensure that the sculpture is not blocked by existing hedges, bushes, plants, and trees. After all, the purpose of installing gatekeeper statues is to showcase them. If you have flowers, place the sculpture close to them to create a greater sense of prominence.
Now you have an idea of what you can do to pick the right gatekeeper statue. The material, size, style, location, and the possibility of combining several figures determine what you should choose. Call us today and take a look at our wide selection of gatekeeper statues.
