Choosing antiques for the garden

From front gates to walled courtyards - consider adding antiques pots, urns, finials and statues to your garden.

Medici urns on gates

This garden gate is made all the more beautiful with a large pair of cast iron Medici urns planted with iceberg roses. 

French finials garden gate

Reconstituted stone finials are also lovely choice for gates and a classic way to emphasize symmetry and axis in your garden.

Driveway lined with Medici urns and lanterns

A long driveway provides an opportunity for pattern and symmetry. Mounted Medici urns are a timeless choice.

Antique Garden sculpture

A classic French garden with topiary and hedging is the perfect backdrop for a weathered garden sculpture.

Anduze urn French garden design 

Anduze urns are quintessentially French and no matter how large the urn, they will always add a touch of elegance to your outdoor space. Here they are planted with oleander, boxwood and citrus. Lemon trees and kumquats are traditionally planted in Anduze urns

Antique biot jar French garden design

Biot jars (on the right) are more like a piece of sculpture when left un-planted. This way they can be displayed both inside or in the garden as they can be moved easily.
