How do I take care of my garden stake or rain gauge?
When your stake or rain gauge arrives from Happy Gardens, it may come with special use and care instructions that can help you extend the life of your product. We always recommend that our customers read these inserts carefully to ensure a happy, beautiful product for years to come.
That being said, some of our customers choose to let their garden decor age naturally—and we love that look, too. After all, garden decor belongs in a garden, not a museum.
How do I install my stake or rain gauge?
Fortunately, most garden stakes and rain gauges are truly a cinch to install. And a thoughtful, appropriately deep plunk into sturdy soil will usually do the trick. Still, you’ll want to check your garden stake or rain gauge’s box carefully for installation instructions or any necessary hardware.

Our best-sellers change pretty frequently, so feel free to check out our up-to-date list to see what’s popular these days.
