A common mistake gardeners make when ...

A common mistake gardeners make when buying a piece of garden statuary is one of size and quantity, according to Peter C. Cilio, creative director of fine garden accessories for Campania International. "Purchasers tend to choose pieces that are just too small for their space or they overload their garden with too many pieces," he says.

...
According to Cilio, the most important consideration to keep in mind when choosing the right piece of statuary is the overall style of your home and garden.
"Whether you have an urban, contemporary or country garden, the statuary you select should be compatible with the style and feeling of your house and garden," he says. "Most likely, you wouldn't place a classical statue in a contemporary-style garden. However, classical statuary makes wonderful features for a more traditional home or garden."
This is not to say that you can't mix it up a little bit. There is always the opportunity for personal expression. Eclectic mixes of styles can create original and exciting garden compositions, but Cilio believes that this is most effectively accomplished by the gardener with a sure sense of his or her own personal style.
Tres Fromme, planning and design specialist of Mesa Design Group in Dallas, suggests cutting a piece of statuary out of cardboard and placing it in different locations throughout your garden. "This will help you get a feel for where the piece looks it best," says Fromme. "It will also give you some time to think about why you want to add an ornament to your garden setting."
Cilio suggests thinking about your garden as a blank wall in your living room.
...
Personally, Cilio prefers the simplicity and versatility of garden containers such as jars and vases, but believes following the simple guidelines of style, color and proportion will lead you to a choice of statuary that will enliven your garden without overpowering it.
