Frog Gardens

A unique take on garden decor

Frog garden art is an ideal way to liven up your garden. In addition to being a traditional symbol of garden fertility, frogs have achieved a certain media success, what with frogs being featured in Budweiser commercials and of course, there's the first frog superstar, Kermit the Frog. Real-life frogs, however, eat bugs that might attack your garden. While a frog statue won't eat bugs, and might not even scare them off, frog statues can be highly decorative and add to the sense of well-being that your garden provides.

Frogs are amphibians. Their long and storied natural history includes a very important milestone, in that they are considered to be the first vertebrate to leave the water and live on land. Today, they can be found just about everywhere on earth, in just about every climate.

There's also a little confusion about the differences between frogs and toads. To help clear that up, remember that frogs are sleek, sometimes brightly colored jumping animals, whereas toads are dry, wart-covered, lumpy, walking animals. A toad also tends to be plumper and larger, and thus can be a little more comical in appearance than the smoother, colorful frog. Consider this when choosing between a decorative toad statue and a frog garden statue.

Frog garden art is available in a wide variety of styles, from the realistic, whimsical and cartoony, to the sleek, modern and abstract. Frog garden art is also available in a wide variety of styles and sizes, and can fit just about any price range.

Most frog garden art is made from highly durable materials that will stand up to the weather and the elements and remain attractive for years to come. Frog garden art is often made from ceramic, concrete or stone. Wood frog garden art is also an option, and while it won't wear as well as stone, weathered wood tends to retain its attractiveness. Attractive frog garden art can also be made from modern materials, like polymer resins. Overall, the function of a frog garden statue is purely decorative, so while casting an eye toward the statue's durability, focus primarily on finding a frog garden statue that suits your taste and sensibility.
