Planning Makes Perfect
Remember, statues are three-dimensional, so you won’t view it only head-on. When choosing a location, look for an area that can be seen from multiple angles, or consider an entry point to your garden or home.
Plants shouldn’t overwhelm the statue or prevent people from seeing it in the garden. Clip back foliage if it becomes profuse, consider which seasons you’ll see blooms, and figure out whether year-round leaves will block any part of your statue.
You want good lighting if your statue is the center point of your garden. Re-arrange solar lighting at night to ensure you achieve the exact look you desire for night time.
When placing birdbaths, make sure you choose a low traffic area, with lots of flowers near by. Birds are attracted to a variety of flowers. Placing your birdbath in a high traffic area will keep birds from even considering to stop.
If you are purchasing statuary for the cemetery, we highly suggest that you contact the cemetery before making your purchase. Every cemetery has different rules and regulations as to what is allowed and not allowed.
