Sundials are no longer used for telling the time, but they make superb garden ornaments and Gardensite sell some of the world's leading manufacturers stone sundial pieces. 

Acardian (Wall Mounted) Sundial

Stylishly enhancing any south facing wall, the Arcadian Wall sundial has a striking linear decoration that traces the sun's journey throughout the day with a shadow that falls on finely detailed roman numerals.

 Arcadian (Freestanding) Sundial

The baluster shape of the freestanding Arcadian sundial is accentuated by its smooth cast stone quality. The dial is highly decorated, featuring a stainless steel gnomon and sun motif at the centre of a scene depicting the moon and stars.

Roman Sundial

A recent addition to the range, the Roman sundial has an elegant wine glass shaped plinth. It is an ornament with classical proportions that will be an graceful focal point suitable to be located on a lawn or courtyard.

Doric Sundial

Unmistakably with style origins dating back to ancient Greece, the Doric sundial has a fluted plinth below a flared capital fitted with a brass dial. Truly an imposing piece that will make an impact in any location.

Baluster Sundial

A fine garden ornament, the charmingly styled Baluster sundial features a beautifully inscribed brass dial and distinctly attractive moulding on the supporting column. This distinguished piece will undoubtedly add character to any garden or terrace. The image shows this birdbath.

Georgian Sundial

Inspired by one of Britain's most graceful eras, the Georgian sundial has wonderful decorative elements. A curved strigillated design covers the plinth up to leaf mouldings below the exquisitely inscribed brass dial. 

Crescent Sundial

The Crescent sundial takes its name from the delightful crescent shaped stainless steel gnomon. There's an inscription on the dial that reads 'Hora quasi umbra' that translates as 'Time is but a shadow', an appropriate aphorism that is proved true by any sundial in this impressive selection.
