Concrete statues have been an important part of landscaping for centuries, dating back to ancient Roman times in elaborate gardens and even as interior decor. Landscapers have recognized the importance of balancing the lush floral beauty of a garden with concrete statuary, fountains and other ornamentation that provide structure, contrast and decorative interest—even after the blooms fade. Stone has long served that ornamental purpose because of its natural weathering qualities and its ability to be carved into intricate forms and shapes. But today there's growing interest in a concrete alternative to stone that offers even greater aesthetic value at a fraction of the cost.

Statues, fountains, benches, pond blocks and a vast array of other decorative pieces made of cast stone—a fancy term for sturdy, reliable precast concrete—are showing up in gardens everywhere in every form imaginable, from quaint patio retreats accented with cast stone urns to palatial courtyards with water cascading from towering cast stone fountains. See these tips for buying concrete statuary and ideas for using these pieces to enhance your landscape.
