Amie, Clocks, How To, Make over, Solar Clocks

If you’re stuck on which garden clock to buy, be sure to consider these factors when making your next purchase.

1. Size of your outdoor space

A garden ‘station clock‘ would be ideal if you need a clock for a porch, entrance or small external area. A popular choice is the Paddington clock, measuring 27cm, ideal for perching in cosy spots, whilst adding traditional elegance to your garden. Many station clocks, such as the Paddington are easily fixable using screws, as they come complete with a mountable bracket.

Station Clock

However, if you’ve a large garden or perhaps an open area such as a school yard, where you need a much bigger clock to fill the space, you should opt for a large clock so you can easily tell the time without having to get binoculars out. A big time clock measuring 90cm in diameter would stand out and look great in a large open space

2. Indoor or outdoor

Most garden clocks will be used for the garden and outdoor space, but they often make a great addition to your indoor space too. Skeleton clocks look superb in a living or dining room area, as they are simplistic in design and will work with most colour schemes thanks to their neutral colours. Small clocks also work well in most indoor spaces too.

Indoor Clock

The best clock for a garden would be waterproof, made from a resistant material such as metal. This way, no matter what weather conditions the skies throw at your clock, rest assured time will keep on ticking by.

3. Want to know the weather?

Many people are keen to know the temperature in their gardens; perhaps to protect plants from frost, or to record a peak summers day. One might just be curious as to what the day holds in store for them.

Thermometer Clock

As such, many clocks now feature thermometers measuring in Celsius and Fahrenheit, which is the ideal solution. Double sided clocks will often show both time and temperature on either side of their faces, whilst single sided clocks often have a small temperature gauge near the centre of the hands.

4. Forget to change the clocks twice a year?

Spring forward, fall back; we all know the phrase but we still often forget to change the time. Radio controlled clocks, which automatically provides the correct time by synchronising to a time code via radio transition, are an ideal solution.

Radio Clock

Varying in size and design, outdoor radio controlled clocks are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. They are slightly larger than small station clocks, yet still look elegant in any space.

5. Colour of your garden scheme

Many of you will have a colour of clock which would suit your garden perfectly. If you’ve a white winter wonderland patio, then a white clock would look perfect.

White Clock

Perhaps you’ve a vintage ambience, so a copper garden clock would be more suitable.

If you have no colour scheme going on (which is perfectly ok too, as you may be planting spontaneously or experimenting with your palette), then a black clock is a neutral colour, which will work and fit in any garden.

Bell Clock

Many clocks also feature additional design features, such as cuckoos, horse and bell, other animals, sundials and so forth. If you’ve a garden set up to focus on enticing birds to your garden, then a cockerel and bell clock would be the perfect fit.
