Before you settle on your ideal frog statue, you should consider a few things: design, placement, and plant life.
Frog decor has long been a blank canvas for bringing a touch of personality, with anthropomorphized amphibians adopting a range of hobbies, careers, and poses to reflect the preferences of their proud owners.
If you want to keep your landscape more naturalistic, choose designs that reflect the lifelike characteristics of nature’s best flycatcher or showcase your lifestyle with outfitted options engaged in human activities.
While some frog stone statues are ideal for ground level, more miniature figures or those in certain poses might require special consideration if you want them to look just right.
For example, a lounging frog catching a few rays would look far more appropriate atop a tree stump or relaxing on the pool deck than nestled amongst a sea of fountain grass.
However, a more realistic design would fit swimmingly near the border stones of your backyard pond.
Many examples of garden frog decor include floral elements or serve as planters. You can mix and match your plant life to correspond with the colors and flora featured in your froggy figures, helping create a more cohesive design palette that won’t clash once your garden is in bloom.
Alternatively, you can create a web-footed wonderland by focusing on plants that can help attract living specimens to your landscape. Examples of frog favorites include water lilies, hosta, marsh iris, and ferns, as they make an ideal shelter for protecting their sticky egg sacs during the breeding season.
