Famous Windmills the World Over
All over the world, windmills have delighted and inspired artists as well as gardeners. From the beautiful coloured windmills of Holland, to the famous red windmill on the Moulin Rouge in Paris, and the start white windmills built by the Venetians in Mykonos, what’s not to love about these dynamic works of sculpture.
Of course, windmills were once used to grind grain, pump water, and even cut wood, but their seamless movements drew the eye of creative designers.
Today, we still use windmills to generate electricity on wind farms, but the most common kind of windmill or wind spinner you will see are garden artworks that come alive, spin and dance at the slightest breeze.
Home Garden Windmills
From kinetic designs to traditional shapes and styles, we have some of the most stunning garden windmills in Australia. Here are just three of our favourites, but you can see the entire range on our online store.
Spinning Leaf Windmill
The amazing kinetic effect of the Spinning Leaf Windmill is generated from the 10 individual spinning leaves. If you’re looking for a statement piece, this is it. This windmill comes in 3 unique colours: red, bronze and champagne.
Rust Aussie Windmill
The iconic Australian Windmill is now available for all to enjoy. The pre-rusted metal finish is the perfect focal point in any garden. Whether you live in the outback or the inner city, this is a classic design that every Australian knows and loves.
The Double Windmill is one of our most popular products thanks to its mesmerizing rhythm and movement. This sculpture has 2 alternate spinning blades that add a dynamic sense of movement to your garden. The pre-rusted steel is subtle but attractive.
Where Should I Put a Wind Spinner in My Garden?
If you’re wondering where to put a wind sculpture in your garden, then it helps to know that you can put a wind spinner almost anywhere it’s safe to do so! The main thing to remember is that the blades really do turn in the wind, so you want to make sure that there’s nothing they could hit or get snared on.
For this reason, open lawns are often best for wind spinners and other garden sculptures, or other parts of the garden where your plantings are not very tall and there are no overhanging branches.
Windmills make fantastic garden features along pathways, or in place of a fountain!
