As Gertrude Jekyll the famous English garden designer pronounced firmly "There can scarcely be a doubt that the happiest material for our garden sculpture and ornament is lead. Lead has been used to decorate and shape English gardens for centuries. It's a wonderful and durable material that is naturally resistant to any type of corrosion and cracking as well as impervious to harsh winters, sea-salt air, and inclement environments. When left exposed to wind, weather, and time, it will develop a beautiful grey patina that will last generations.
