There are tons of reasons to add a handcrafted garden statue to your outdoor space. Perhaps you’ve got a grassy area that just needs a little “something.” Or maybe you’ve got a flowerbed that’s so colorful, you’re looking for an earthy, calming sculpture to balance things out. Or perhaps you’re looking to add charm and character to a walkway or landscape area.
Well, no matter why you choose to decorate your garden, Happy Gardens has a vast selection of hand-made, top-quality garden statues in every shape and size. And whether you’re feeling playful, serious, traditional, or abstract, each statue in our curated collection is sure to become quite the conversation piece.
How Do I Pick A Garden Statue For My Garden?
Picking the perfect garden statue for your outdoor space is both a science and an art. Yes, there are technical, functional considerations. For example, you’ll want to think about how much exposure to the elements your garden statue will get, where it will be staked, and whether you wish to display it seasonally or year-round.
But there’s also quite a bit of space to just select a statue that “sparks joy.” Just like you’d pick out a new vase or a new coffee table book, selecting garden decor is really about choosing something that speaks to you. Most of our Happy Gardens customers don’t really come to our shop looking for one specific thing. Instead, they browse our collection—and find that their next garden statue chooses them. They are also popular when making a rock garden.
Don’t be afraid to go with your gut or take some risks. All of our garden statues are backed by our Happy Gardens guarantee—so if you’re unhappy, we’ll do everything we can to make it right.
How Are Garden Statues Made?
Every garden statue in the Happy Gardens collection is handcrafted using top-quality materials like reclaimed river stone and forged steel.
And many of our stone garden sculptures are actually made by some genuinely incredible artisans. These stone sculptures are made in Honduras by our supplier’s socially conscious business. The company was founded after Hurricane Mitch in 1998, and has since been donating proceeds from the (often adorable) statues to provide sanitation services, potable water, and equipment for and training to artisans.
Some of the statues this supplier helps us stock? Our best-selling dog river stone garden statue, or our beloved natural 8 stone cairn garden statue.

How Do I Care For My Garden Statue?
For precise information on how to care for your unique garden statue, refer to the information provided to you with your product.
But, in general, there’s not much to it. Our biggest recommendation? Take care to protect delicate garden statues from the elements, if necessary. But don’t stress too much. Even if your garden statue does begin to show signs of aging, don’t despair. Understand that an aged, patinated garden statue is a thing of beauty—and that slowly, just about everything will develop a unique charm. (Yep, even you and me.). We also have a great article on how to refurbish a stone garden statue.
What Are Your Most Popular Garden Statues?
Our best-selling garden statues include our 8 stone cairn garden statue, our caterpillar garden statue, our downright adorable dog river stone garden statue, and our equally cute cat river stone garden statue. All of these statues also happen to be sourced from our socially conscious supplier in Honduras.
But remember, while every single statue we sell is beautiful, only you can decide what’s right for you—or your mother-in-law, or your nephew, or your coworker. So have a look, shop our collection, and feel free to reach out to us if you need any help at all. We've always found that any ormnament you add to your garden, the icing on the cake are large wind chimes.
