If you are looking for a way to add that extra something to your garden decor, think about choosing from among the variety of interesting garden clocks available on the market or add an attractive garden thermometer. These items serve a functional purpose, but can also be a great way to create a focal point in your garden with an object that is unexpected and artistic.
When it comes to choosing a garden clock, you have a number of different options. You can choose a garden wall clock, which is one of the most popular options and this type of clock can be placed amongst your garden hanging from a fence, the side of your house, a garden building, or just about any vertical surface. Garden wall clocks can be made from a variety of materials, including ceramic, metal, copper, wood, or just about any type of material that can withstand outdoor use.
One of the nice things about garden wall clocks is that they can be hung up in a similar fashion to how you would hang a piece of artwork inside. The outdoor garden clocks can blend right into the surroundings and have a very natural look, or you can opt for a style that is bold and eclectic to really draw your eye to the clock and add a bit of whimsy to your garden.
Another option, if you don’t have a wall to hang a clock from in the proximity of your garden, is to instead buy a hanging garden clock that hangs from a post. In most cases, the post and the garden clock come together as a set, along with a bracket to hang the clock from, but otherwise, if you already have a post, you can simply buy a decorative bracket or hook so that your outdoor garden clock can delicately hang from any available post. Hanging a clock or thermometer near your favorite garden bench can be visually appealing and can add to the quaintness of your outdoor decor.
If you have a space with a bit more room and want to opt for something more unique, there are tabletop garden clocks as well. Some come in the form of a sundial, so that you can tell the time like they did in ancient times, based on the positioning of the sun, while others are regular clocks that are set within the top of a table to provide an interesting alternative to a small outdoor table set within the garden.
As for garden thermometers, many of them come in the same styles and options as garden clocks do and they can also create an interesting focal point in your backyard and garden, while also serving as a good indication of what the temperature is like outdoors. Some come with added features, such as barometric pressure readings, as well. You can, of course, just buy a cheap garden thermometer (or cheap garden clock for that matter), that is not really decorative but just serves a functional purpose if that’s all you need.
If you are interested in getting both a clock and a thermometer in your backyard or garden and don’t want two different accessories hanging out there, you can find some models of garden clock thermometers that will both tell you what time it is and also tell you what the temperature is as well. Finding a garden clock thermometer in a style you like may be a bit more difficult, since there are not as many options available, but with a little searching, you should find something that will go well with your garden decorating style.
While some people love to head out in their gardens to forget about time for awhile as they putter away amongst their plants and flowers, others love to be able to keep tabs on the time or to simply have an attractive focal point to catch their eye – and for those that do, a garden clock is the perfect solution!
