ARTHUR MENNIGKE’S TIPS
Choose one good piece rather than several smaller ones and buy the best that you can afford.
Let the sculpture speak for itself. Don’t overcrowd it.
If appropriate, light it up softly at night.
Plant according to the sculpture. For example, if it’s a fish you could use Euphorbia tirucalli to simulate coral; if it’s an elephant, choose large leafed, indigenous plants to place around it rather than plants such as roses.
Place a sculpture in the foreground to create depth in the garden.
