How do you choose the right Garden Wind Vanes Designs for your home?
It really depends on how you want to use it.
Many people mount their garden wind vane or weathervane on their home roof top to show the wind direction. I usually mount mine on a pole in the garden, on the deck railing or on the garden storage shed. I have even put them inside my home for decoration. Some of these are so cool looking, why wouldn’t I?
To choose the right wind vane design for you, you must first decide where you want to put it. I chose mine based on memories of ones on my great grandparents home and barns. I loved watching them spin around.
All garden wind vanes can be used in the home, but not all garden wind vanes can be used on the roof top. So look closely at the details report on each one you are interested in to be sure it will hold up on the roof top or in the garden. With rain and snow and winds, your poor garden wind vane may die if it is not made for outdoor use.
Choose a garden wind vane design that shows your personality. If you are very traditional, you will find an assortment of ones that typically wouldn’t have been used on homes centuries ago.
If you are a little bit to the right in your likes, you will find an assortment of fun wind vanes that will tickle your funny bone every time you see your wind vane.
With so many great garden wind vanes designs to choose from, you may decide to put one in all three places; your home, your garden and your roof top.
