Bespoke cast stone garden features transform any outdoor living space. We’re spending more time in our own gardens than ever before and adding cast stone garden products in amongst a perfect lawn and a spectrum of coloured flowers, shrubs and foliage adds practical functionality and stunning aesthetics to any garden improvement project.
Whether you are working with a professional landscaper or you’re taking on a DIY project to ready your garden for the summer months, the Acanthus Cast Stone range of stunning garden features has products to suit every style and design.
Here are our top five trending cast stone garden features for summer:
5. Fountain and pool surrounds
Water fountains are one of the most sought-after garden features for UK homeowners. Incorporating the calming sounds of running water into your garden is straightforward and simple with one of our stunning cast stone fountains.
We manufacture a range of beautifully detailed garden feature water fountains, in a full choice of sizes to suit most gardens. No matter how big or small your outdoor living space is, there’s always room for a relaxing garden water feature.
Take a look at our detailed product drawings to see our circular, semi-circular, square and oval pool surround design options, available with plinths to create deeper pools. For smaller gardens and courtyards, our additional decorative cast stone features such as our Lion Wall Mask is the perfect choice for a stunning wall fountain. We also offer a bespoke design service so you can have a pool and fountain specially designed to fit in with your new garden design.
All of our cast stone fountains are supplied with all of the pipework needed plus the fittings and pumps. We also supply stone pool surrounds that perfectly complement your fountain, which are available in a selection of styles and almost any size and shape.
Our impressive cast stone balustrades are perfect for edging staircases and steps, terraces and balconies. A popular choice in our building, landscaping and garden products range, balustrades are the ideal decorative finishing touch to your home. Our most popular choice of balustrade is based on 18th century style with slender piers that are matched with beautifully moulded rails and plinths. Balustrades can be introduced into your home on balconies, terraces and steps to add Italian style flair to your property’s aesthetics.
All of our designs can be made bespoke for any project, whether that be a new build, a replica or a restoration. We work closely with you alongside our CAD team to create the perfect balustrade design in your choice of cast stone colour.
3. Sundials and plinths
Our range of cast stone sundials and plinths are a very popular option in new garden designs.
Our plinths can be manufactured to suit an existing sundial plate or armillary sphere you already have. We also offer a range of ornamental pressed brass plates or very accurate stainless steel so you can purchase your whole sundial and plinth kit from Acanthus.
Our sundials and plinths make fantastic gifts too – for special birthdays, anniversaries or just because! You can make it even more personal with an engraved plaque displaying your message of congratulations.
2. Urns and planters
Our detailed stone urns and planters are another trending product for summer that lots of homeowners are choosing to adorn sunrooms and orangeries, as well as their outside space.
We have a selection available in a full range of detailed designs to create impressive focal points, or add decorative planters to garden walls or around paved outside areas.
Handcrafted at our factory in Derbyshire, our urns and planters are completely frostproof to withstand the worst of the great British weather, and the stone will age beautifully to add more character to your garden, year after year.
You can buy our range of urn and planter garden features through our online shop. The most popular designs this year are Athenian Vase, Florentine Trough and Bay Box Planters, which are the perfect fit for a bay tree either side of your entrance door.

1. Cast stone Benches
No garden renovation is complete without creating a beautiful seating area where you can sit back with your friends and family and enjoy your outdoor living space. Whether you like a Sunday morning coffee in the sunshine, or relaxing afternoons with a BBQ and a glass of wine, our cast stone benches are ideal for creating these relaxing spots in your garden.
Our straight bench designs are a great choice for quiet corners, where you can enjoy the last of the day’s sunshine. We also offer curved bench options to create impressive seating areas for friends and family.
We offer a range of traditional and modern bench designs for your project and, unlike wooden benches, our stone benches require no maintenance. They age and weather with time, creating a stunning and practical feature that will last for years to come.
