Inspired by the beauty of the olive tree, believe it or not, this detailed garden statue has 300 leaves! The best part: water streams over the branches, creating a beautiful shimmering effect as the light catches the surface. It's as though this tree has been caught in the rain, though hopefully the weather will remain sunny and bright so that the design can be fully appreciated this summer. 

A modern garden sculpture

If you want your garden to have a contemporary, abstract look, why not opt for this dynamic 'tranquillity' sculpture design. The glossy surface appears to be a mix of blue and black shades that changes in the sun to stunning effect. Simple modern designs such as this look best in minimalist gardens with paved areas or wooden decking. 

Bronze rabbit statue

Be inspired by the likes of Watership down and the Wind in the Willows with this elegant bronze rabbit statue from Denton Arts Limited.  Perfect if you like subtle statues that blend in with the natural environment, whilst still possessing that special quality guaranteed to catch everybody's eye. Bronze animal statues such as this are a great addition in a traditional English garden, as they provide texture and character without being overbearing or straying from the natural, pastoral themes found in these designs. 

Swanning about

This regal swan statue is perfect for bird lovers, especially those with larger gardens to accommodate a sculpture of this size. The swan watches stoically over the stream, keeping an eye on the stunning grounds, itself playing a central role in the beauty of the area. Made of bronze with a white finish, this statue is ideal for making a big impact in a large open space.
