Garden Critters

Ingeniously made from recycled iron, horse shoes, scrap tin, recycled shovels, rebar, and saw blades, and other recycled metal pieces, these charming garden sculptures bring smiles in every garden they inhabit, and help to reduce the tonnage of metal waste in landfills.

Yearly, 25 metric tons of steel are not recycled and are dumped in landfills. Americans throw away enough iron and steel to supply all the nation’s automakers on a continuous basis.

The great news about using scrap metal to create garden art is that metal takes a long time to break down: up to 1,000 years.  So if you choose, this can be a whimsical family treasure for years to come.
