How to Personalize Your Garden with Accents

A garden is a truly special place to celebrate the changing seasons, enjoy the sounds of nature and find serenity. Think of your garden as a sanctuary — a stone’s throw away from your house, but a magical universe of your own creation. In essence, a garden can be whatever you want it to be. And you don’t even need a green thumb to bring a stunning garden design to life and make it bloom!

Certainly, plants and flowers are the heart of most gardens, but unique accents will truly set yours apart. If you don’t know where to start, think about delightful gardens you’ve seen and the details that made them memorable. Perhaps a tranquil outdoor fountain, gorgeous statue or playful garden gnome captivated your heart.

Design Toscano is proud to offer a globally diverse selection of creative outdoor décor. These great garden statues don’t require getting on a plane or leaving your own backyard to be transported to an exotic locale! Here are a few inspiring ideas to help you plan your dream garden.
