If you are looking for some landscape design ideas, look no further than the garden clock. Sounds too simple? Well, just think of how interesting you were of sundials and garden clocks in the past. The idea of an outside clock can make people stand up straighter and take notice, because the normal place we expect to see clocks is inside – usually in the kitchen. It’s a little more interesting, a little more offbeat to see a garden clock and that’s why garden clocks will make your garden stand out from the rest.
Some garden clocks are very elaborate. Some people even go out of their way to create a garden that forms the clock face, as can be seen in some prestigious gardens around the world. The flowers or hedges or foliage actually forms the shape of the clock and the numbers, and a huge powered dial moved around in the centre. It is a piece of art to create something like this but may not even be hard, with an appropriate clock kit and the patience required to wait for garden plants and flowers to reach their potential and/or maturity, it is possible to have a wonderfully innovative living clock in your garden.
Of course not all people want to go this far and some will be going for other styles. Garden clocks come in all shapes and sizes, after all, and you are going to love some of the sundials, terracotta clocks,. solar clocks, Kensington clocks, antique garden clocks, Italian garden clocks, stone clocks and other intrigues that can be found in the right places when you look.
If you’re after something unusual, chances are that you will find what you are looking for online. Online stores include antique stores and garden centres these days, and because of huge warehousing capabilities that these companies have, they will be able to stock all manner of garden clocks from which you will surely find something to your liking. Many small online stores can operate out of their own home businesses and provide a very unique selection, due to their low overheads and ability to refine their customer service for special customers like you who are looking for that something really unique and different.
If you are going to get a garden clock, one that will set off your entire garden space, make sure that you show it off to its highest potential. Arrange the garden beds and pathways, rockpools or fountains, gazing balls or statues, and other garden elements that you have chosen in such a way to point to and highlight your special garden clock. If you choose one that you really love, it will mean more to you than just a timepiece – it will set off your garden space and make it a place that you enjoy to just be in, whether using your lemon juicer to make cocktails for the summer party, or rugging up in woollies to play snowballs in the garden with your kids in the middle of the wintertime.
