Stone Bird Baths Reviewed

Stone Bird Baths make handsome features in any garden, not forgetting their primary purpose of providing water for birds to bathe in and drink. Nathan James Dodd reviews the range available to gardeners.

Stone Bird Baths Reviewed

As with their other cast stone ornaments, stone bird baths are an interesting mix of traditional and contemporary styles, all finely crafted and expertly designed. Available in a range of colours including Bathstone, Portland, Terracotta, Slate and Coade.

Baluster And Arcadian

Both the Baluster bird bath and Arcadian bird bath are undecorated yet very elegant. Their supporting columns look as though they have been turned on a lathe below generously sized wide rimmed circular bowls. The same two styles can also be bought as bird tables.

The Arcadian is also very popular in store due to its competitive price, which means you can pick up a stone bird bath for under £100. The display models sell out quickly. Customers love being able to collect them, saving a delivery cost, whilst also having a hand loading them into their vehicles.

Regency

The Regency bird bath has a distinctive yet simply decorative water bowl located above a plain square pedestal. It is also available as a Memorial bird bath as the name suggests, a memorial plaque can be attached to the latter's pedestal and there is a receptacle for ashes.

Georgian

A Georgian bird bath has a strigillated baluster decorated with leaf mouldings in the classical style. Gracefully proportioned with a refined appearance, this one does not need garish decoration to be a notable addition to your garden. The Georgian has proved extremely popular among customers on GardenSite purchasing them for stately homes.

Hazelwood

Going forward to the Victorian period, the Hazelwood bird bath departs from classical decoration. Its base is covered by an attractive sea shore motif that laps up the pedestal like a wave, no doubt inspired by an era when seaside holidays were gaining popularity.  

Highland Park

Finally, if you want contemporary style that would not look entirely out of place in a formal garden, the angular Highland Park bird bath has a hint of art deco with decoration replaced by sleek styling. TecStone is used in its manufacture, a form of cast stone that ensures an entirely appropriate smooth finish.
