Looking for something to spruce up your front yard, backyard or pool area?
How about adding some lawn ornaments? Today, you can find lawn ornaments and statues of all sizes, shapes and styles.
From wild to quirky to classical, from small to life size, you will find the lawn decor ornament which suits you and conveys your individual personality and style.
One of the most popular lawn ornaments – the smaller versions – are pet statues, both dogs and cats. Do you love your dog or cat…so much that just having them around is not enough? You would like to have a permanent statue resembling your favorite pet in your garden so that you can enjoy their presence permanently. Or maybe you have dreamed of having a particular breed of dog but have yet to get one.
Dog Breed Ornamental Statues
You can purchase an adorable life sized lawn ornament for various popular dog breeds – including but not limited to French Bulldogs, Puggs, Yorkshire Terriors, Chihuahuas, Boston Terriers, Spaniels, Schnauzers, German Shephards, Labrador Retriever puppies, Bulldogs, Dalmations, Shih Tzu and even the statuesque Greyhound breed.
Cat Lawn Ornaments
Cat lovers can also rejoice in that they can find lawn ornaments in various cat breeds. While not as prolific as the available breeds for dogs, cat breed statues include Siamese, tabby cats, American Shorthair tabbies, Persians and more. And of course, you will find varying cat poses from sleeping (of course) to lounging to climbing a fence or tree.
Horse Lawn Ornaments
If you aren’t lucky enough to live on a ranch but you love, love, love horses, then this life sized horse statue – wild stallion to be precise – is for you.
Nature lovers can decorate their yards with other creatures who may or may not frequent their lawns and gardens for real. Large sized deer statues along with life size raccoon, rabbit, fox and even bear ornaments can be added to give your yard a closer-to-real nature wildlife scene.
Personally, some days I would prefer to have a statue of these little critters as opposed to the real thing – ONLY because they sometimes enjoy my garden a little too much. Otherwise, I do love the real deal.
Are you the type that likes to walk on the wild side. We have you covered as well….really covered. You won’t believe what wild things you can put in your garden or backyard…or for those who like to mess with people, maybe even your front yard.
Tropical Wildlife Lawn Ornaments
For Floridians who can’t get enough of their local real wild life (may not be everyone), add a real taste of the swamp with a life size alligator. Who knows, it may scare away the real ones?
Another little critter – well maybe I should not say little – found in some backyards – when they are real – are reticulated pythons. Yes, you can add a python ornament, of the 20 foot persuasion, to your grassy backyard. Not really my cup of tea but, some people love their wild life. I am not sure about the science behind it but, it may just scare away some other little pesky critters.
If you prefer a lighter, less ominous backyard critter friend, you can opt for a pretty pink flamingo. What can make you smile – a pretty pink flamingo standing in amongst your green garden pond plants.
Jungle Creatures as Lawn Ornaments
If even these snake and alligator ornaments are not quite wild enough for you, how about taking a trip to South America for some wild inspiration – i.e. adding a black panther statue to your jungle garden. Get that South American jungle feeling right in your own yard. Not sure how a domestic cat would react to this panther statue…if your neighbor’s cat is doing their business in your garden, this may just be a deterrent.
More South American animals you can add to your outdoor space – without owning an exotic pet – are some beautiful and colorful parrots. Hanging these on your outdoor wall or gazebo will add a dash of color and whimsy to your garden…and you won’t have to worry about any funny back talk.
African Wildlife Lawn Ornaments
For another less scary version of the out of continent wild life, you can add a large turtle or tortoise. The more peaceful and gentle African giraffe or elephant statue lawn ornaments – probably not of the life size version – can also be integrated into your garden.
Go even further away and add a gorilla statue, an adorable panda bear or even a life size Komodo dragon – the largest (and that means large) of the lizard family found in Indonesia.
Dinosaur Lawn Ornaments
If you prefer to live in a fantasy land, we have you covered as well. Want to feel like you are living in a prehistoric world, add this Velociraptor to your backyard.
While we know that Raptor dinosaurs actually existed, we are still not sure about some other creatures which can become part of your fantasy backyard garden.
If you are a believer, a Yeti, Sasquatch or Bigfoot statue can be added to add both a touch of wonder and whimsy. Will this be proof that Bigfoot does exist?
Whimsical Lawn Ornaments
On a much more whimsical side, fantasy creatures which can become an interesting addition to your garden are unicorns and dragons.
Not only does this dragon statue make a statement, it is designed with an artsy whimsical quirky feel. Many other garden statues and ornaments can be found in this quirky style.
If all of these garden ornaments and statues are a bit over the top for you and you prefer a more classical look for your home, fear not. There are numerous classical and traditional statues available.
Zen Garden Statues
If you are into yoga and want to create a peaceful backyard environment, add a Buddha statue to your garden. With so many styles and sizes to choose from, you are certain to find the perfect one for your yard.
If you have more room for a larger statue in your yard or garden, opt for a full-on standing Buddha statue. With this peace and serenity surrounding you, you may never be stressed again.
This beautiful classical peacock statue adds color and an air of exotic, while still adding classic sophistication to your garden.
Iconic Lawn Ornaments and Statues
Probably the most classic statue of all time is the lion on a pedestal or lion heads. For a strong presence, mixed with a classic feel, opt for a lion statue. Pair 2 lion statues at your front entrance for a strong but welcoming entry.
As you can see, there is no shortage of potential decor objects that can be added to your backyard, pool area, patio, garden or any outdoor space.
Whether it is a classical statuesque lion statue for your front entrance walkway, a life sized alligator statue for your backyard, an ornament of your favorite dog or cat breed placed in between garden plants, a set of graceful life size herons occupying your patio, or a large sized dinosaur statue walking on your garden path, you will easily be able to add some personal decor flair to your outdoor space.
