I wanted to replace a 10 year old resin bird bath that was falling to pieces with a better quality stone one. After a failed attempt (the company manufacturing my order went out of business due to Covid-19) I saw this and liked the simple, stylish design. It's available on several websites but, in a field evidently littered with charlatans (according to online reviews), Gardensite seemed to have better ratings than most. The delivery, which occurred yesterday, was slightly quicker than the 20-40 day timescale quoted, however I was given no warning that it was about to arrive. Luckily I had just returned home and was able to instruct the driver where to put it. It comes in two parts due to the heavy overall weight - they fit seamlessly together. The bird bath has met my expectations in terms of the quality of the product and overall appearance. The bowl is wide and shallow, which I think will be optimal for both large and small birds. The hardest decision was whether to chose the Portland or Bathstone finish - in the end I plumped for the former. Overall I think it was the right choice and it looks beautiful in the afternoon and evening light with a slight greyish hue coming through. However I have to say when I saw it this morning in bright sunlight it looked almost artificially white. I guess it's not reasonable to pass a final judgement until it has naturally weathered a bit.

Delightful and functional focal point for the garden
Photos are on the website - a 60th birthday present for a close friend ( per engraving, shown) Was "christened" within minutes of installation by a delightful blackbird, as also shown. This item is stylish - contemporary - we are all very pleased. Special thanks to Halls and to Haddonstone to swiftly provide a replacement within a couple of days, the day before the birthday, when first order was delivered damaged after a one month order. Much appreciated.
