Wind spinners and wind chimes are two exciting ways of using the breeze which is in such plentiful supply in this country! Get ready to greet gusty days with glee with our selection of kinetic creations.
From the tinkle of glass to the mellow notes of bamboo pipes, there is a sound to please everyone in our range of wind chimes. And with an enormous array of designs, there’s a look to suit every garden too.
Since the spring seems to have deserted us, why not let the meditative resonance of bamboo from the Hibiscus Natural Chime transport you to a faraway tropical beach? At least it will sound like summer is coming!
Or, if you want a more energising sound, take a look at our lovely recycled glass collection. These colourful decorations sparkle in the light as well as tinkling merrily in the breeze and are sure to bring cheer to any garden. Available in leaf, fish, rectangle and squiggle shapes, the glass is frost proof, so they can stay outside all year round.
Alternatively, a well-placed wind spinner can bring sparkle and movement to a dark corner. These elegant wind dancers turn gracefully on a breath of breeze, catching the light as they spin. Check out the mesmerising Double Nova or Butterfly, both crafted in rustproof stainless steel to make sure they keep their shine.
The gusts seem to be with us to stay, so why not try to catch the wind?
I have always loved Garden Decoration and Wind Chimes by Woodstock Chimes was what I coveted most, back in 1992! I am so proud to that we at Home to Garden carry the Woodstock Chimes line of beautiful hand-tuned chimes. Wind Chimes are the Grandaddy of garden decoration and have been part of Eastern culture for thousands of years.
Garden Decorations can enhance any area of your garden. Fences can be decorated with mirrors or stainless shapes that become reflecting pools of all the colour in the garden and adding a feel of extra depth to the area. Wind sculptures bring the unseen element of air movement alive as do wind chimes and brightly colored flags. Hanging Crystals catch the sunlight and turn walls and patio pavements into rainbow polka dotted landscapes!
There are practical uses for Garden Decorations, as they are used widely in Sensory Gardens at schools for disabled children and in Hospices for the terminally ill. For the disabled they provide stimulation of the senses. For terminally ill patients they provide relief from the confines of being indoors and the static environment of being confined mostly to bed. At Home to Garden, we donate many of our products to schools and hospices that want to provide outdoor Sensory Gardens for their patients and students who are in schools for the disabled and are wheel chair bound.
There is so much choice now, in the sector of garden decoration, one could turn their garden into a vertible Dysneyland! This may appeal to some and would certainly be a hit with the children or anyone who is very young at heart! Really though, just a few well chosen pieces, whether a beautiful wind chime or wind sculpture, reflecting mirrors, glass rainbow bubbles, will be all the focal points needed to bring a wonderful sense of interest and vitality to your garden.
