Landscaping With Sculptures
Landscaping Tips

Landscaping with one or several sculptures is a great way to enhance the design of your front or backyard. Large or small, sculptures add an element of interest as well as artistic effect to your landscape. Blade Landscape Design has shared some tips below on how to select and position a new sculpture for the landscape.   

1. Plan 

Before selecting a sculpture, consider and conceptualise how you would like the sculpture to compliment the design of your landscape. If your garden is traditional, a simple and traditional sculpture may suit the style of your landscape best. On the other hand, if your garden is modern, a contemporary sculpture would suit your landscape better.   

2. Choose a location 

Another element to consider is the sculpture’s potential location. If you are envisioning your sculpture as the focal point of your landscape, choose a sculpture that won’t look out of place at the centre of your garden. Conversely, if you’re looking for a sculpture to simply compliment your design, consider a location where it will be noticeable yet subtle.   

3.  Select your sculpture 

Consider the material of your potential sculpture. A good material to look out for is corteen steel, as it develops an aesthetically pleasing rust-coloured patina after several years outdoors. 

Cultured stone is also a good option as it is versatile and can be made to appear like natural stone or carved marble.   

When selecting a style, it is important to choose a sculpture that resonates with both your garden, and yourself personally.   

4.  Install your sculpture 

Before installing your sculpture, ensure that the location has a solid, level foundation if the ground is not even. Consider that a concrete base for support may be needed. It is also important to be aware of the weight of your sculpture. If there will be children who might play around the sculpture, it must immovable if it weighs over 200 pounds.   

When it comes to larger sculptures, mounted instructions are normally included in your purchase. Where an artist has been commissioned, the artist will normally provide assistance in installing the sculpture or providing a base for it.
