About Us

Founded in 1988, New England Garden Ornaments is the insider's source for rare and authentic garden antiques, architectural features, and fine handmade reproductions. With a 6,000-square-foot showroom and an outdoor display, New England Garden Ornaments is the largest purveyor of decorative garden elements in the northeast.

From its bucolic beginnings on a rustic farm, NE Garden has been an imaginative and energetic force in reestablishing ornamentation in American landscape design. Now a destination for garden lovers everywhere, proprietor Gray Baldwin and her design team have curated a collection of American and European antique ornamentation, furniture, armillary sundials, custom fountains, statuary and other treasures.

We pride ourselves in our extensive selection, created for us by exceptional small foundries, dry cast stone makers, and artisans across England and beyond.

Our gardens and gallery in lovely Sudbury, Massachusetts, feature finds by local artisans, stone carvers, metal workers and potters. New England Garden Ornaments is the leading marketplace for important garden antiques or unique handmade artisanal reproductions.

ABOUT GRAY BALDWIN

Sourcing the most beautiful, timeless, and weather-hardy garden accouterments is Gray Baldwin’s passion as owner and manager of New England Garden Ornaments. A long-time gardener – orchids are her amore – Gray combines her love for antique ornaments, history, and travel to satisfy clients’ requests, from traditional classics to the more unexpected eclectic flourishes. Gray combines a business background from MIT’s MBA program with a skilled eye for fine garden ornaments.

She travels far and wide to find the extraordinary pieces she’s known for – with over 2,000 pieces in inventory, there’s something for everyone.

Gray personally oversees the delightful selection of inventory, many from auctions, farms, salvage yards, and period homes from Italy, France, England, and more. One of a kind pieces – statuary, benches, armillary sundials, urns, pedestals, birdbaths, English lead, and cast stone fountains – arrive several times a year from Europe, exemplifying craftsmanship and care that simply doesn’t exist today. As well, contemporary pieces are carried to complement the traditional and antique ornaments.
