When you’re transforming your outdoor area to be an extension of your indoor living space, don’t forget the art! Just like the artwork and sculptures inside your home help showcase your unique style, the artistic elements you include in your landscape should do the same. And garden art can be anything that you want it to be, from a freeform sculpture installed in one of your flowerbeds to a one-of-a-kind piece that doubles as both art and seating.

Everything is an Opportunity
When designing your landscape, every element presents an opportunity. Here, the homeowner's mailbox doubles as a planter, creating a sense of whimsy.
Your home's garden and outdoor space is an opportunity for you to showcase your unique style and tastes. Here, a beautiful cherub rests atop a limestone retaining wall; her natural patina will only become more interesting and beautiful over time.
Consider adding garden art elements that serve dual purposes. Here, the homeowners commissioned the design of a metal butterfly whose wings provide the perfect opportunity to sit and enjoy the outdoor space.
Your Outside Art Gallery
Consider your landscaping and outside space as an extension of your home, adding pieces that speak to you and your design aesthetic.
A Focal Point
When designing formal gardens for your outdoor space, consider selecting a meaningful piece of garden art to serve as a focal point.
Part of the Landscape
Sometimes, the most amazing garden art are those pieces that look like an almost natural part of the landscape. Here, the homeowners opted for a custom-designed urn surrounded by long, lush grass.
The Garden as Art
Sometimes, the garden itself serves as the artwork! Here, the homeowners' formal garden is done in an intricate design with neatly-groomed shrubbery forming spirals and curlicues.
Whether you use them to create privacy, provide shade, or simply serve as an accent, garden arbors add visual interest to your outdoor living space. Here, garden arbors crafted of concentric circles serve as frames for the landscape's various plantings.
