Dog Garden For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal dog garden for your home. Frequently made of metal, iron and stone, every dog garden was constructed with great care. There are 259 variations of the antique or vintage dog garden you’re looking for, while we also have 6 modern editions of this piece to choose from as well. Whether you’re looking for an older or newer dog garden, there are earlier versions available from the 18th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 21st Century. Each dog garden bearing Mid-Century Modern, Neoclassical or Victorian hallmarks is very popular. A well-made dog garden has long been a part of the offerings for many furniture designers and manufacturers, but those produced by Willy Guhl, Donald Deskey and AMK for Patricia Kagan are consistently popular.

How Much is a Dog Garden?

Prices for a dog garden can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $325 and can go as high as $39,000, while the average can fetch as much as $2,425.

Finding the Right Building and Garden Elements for You

Choosing the right antique or vintage building and garden elements can prove pivotal when you’re working to beautify any room in your home or just put the finishing touches on a garden or other outdoor area.

It takes time and effort to improve your outdoor space or merely to bring an air of tranquility to an indoor area set aside for private relaxation or gathering with friends. The good news is that 1stDibs can help.

To introduce a sense of timelessness to a back patio or interior common area, choose cast-stone statues or sculptural busts for a dose of drama or select ornate architectural elements such as corbels, plaques or panels made of marble or iron. Elsewhere, find a focal point in your living room and create a “feature wall” by bringing pops of color into a corner with handmade antique ceramic tiles.

It helps when design changes like these have a practical upside too.

Victorian cast-iron stair treads hearken back to a time when adding decorative details to your property was a priority. While lending an attractive appearance to an exterior staircase, these safeguards render the steps slip-resistant for those coming and going. And as one good stylistic choice usually leads to another, pairing your sophisticated treads with a coupling of 19th-century hand-forged andirons would be a thoughtful, durable touch for any courtyard or comfortable lounge space, be they intended for an indoor fireplace or a patio firepit.

Where the garden is concerned, any sophisticated garden ornaments you select should work with nature, not against it. Wrought-iron garden gates will simply refuse to be relegated to the background. Instead, they’ll draw attention to your painstakingly sculpted hedges and colorful flora. When paired with a sparse arrangement of other tasteful additions, such as a stone planter, garden stool or other welcoming pieces of outdoor seating, the effect can be transformative.

On 1stDibs, find a sprawling collection of antique garden furniture and architectural elements that meet every need. Our offerings include everything from sculptural bathroom fixtures to flooring ideas to pedestals and columns designed in a variety of styles and much more.
