Buying Guide

Among the many lovely items and accessories you can buy for your garden are beautiful metal pinwheels. You have probably seen these before but perhaps made from paper or plastic. Situated on a long stick, these pinwheels are shaped like flowers and spin in the wind to create an interesting effect. Before buying metal pinwheels for your garden, let's look at what you should consider first.

One of the questions many people have is, “How many pinwheels should I buy for my garden?”
This is a common and valid question since you may want several pinwheels or you may just want a single item. The answer is generally down to you – it's a matter of personal preference. However, it's important to think about the following factors:

  • The size of your garden: Small gardens won't look great with many pinwheels, while homeowners with larger gardens can get away with several pinwheels in various locations.
  • The plants and shrubs that you have: Gardens which have many plants and shrubs may not be suitable for more than one or two pinwheels. Avoid placing your pinwheels where they may interfere with your plants.

Metal garden pinwheels come in many different heights, so before you go out shopping, step into your garden with a tape measure or measuring stick and start experimenting. Guesswork is never a good idea, particularly if you're investing a fair amount of money into your new garden accessories. For large gardens and bigger patches of lawn or soil, pinwheels of around 20-30 inches are often the most suitable. Smaller gardens can be overshadowed by larger pinwheels, so a shorter size of 10-16 inches is ideal.

The word 'metal' initially suggests that all of the pinwheels will be silver and plain metal. However, this is not the case, and once you start shopping around, you'll see many different colors. You may think that silver is the most suitable color for your garden, or perhaps you don't want to add any extra color in addition to your plants. If you want some color, though, there are plenty to choose from, with many accessories available in two-tone patterns. Dark blues, reds and greens are popular colors, although brighter purples, yellows and oranges can also be found.

The most common shape for metal garden pinwheels is a floral shape, although you will find plain circle shapes and also pinwheels in the shape of a sun with sunbeams. Within these categories there is a lot of variety, such as flower pinwheels with many petals or very few petals.

The petal shapes may be larger on some pinwheels than on others, which can make them heavier and therefore more resistant to bad weather and less likely to fall over. Some pinwheels look like miniature wind turbines, and others are in the shape of a star. Whatever shapes you prefer, there's something for each and every garden.
