Set in Stone

storestone1What do the Biltmore Garden Collection, Galloway Garden Collection, and historic Charleston Collection have in common with the Cummer Museum? Your first guess might be the beautifully landscaped gardens and flowering plants. However, it is also an assortment of unique stone pieces. For the past 16 years Unique Stone has been “uniquely” beautifying gardens one stone piece at a time. Their numerous pieces are exquisite examples of old world reproductions. Did you know each finish is hand applied by skilled artisans? The Cummer shop features a variety of these pieces. Come see for yourself the assortment of birdbaths, benches, urns, and statues currently on display. Our knowledgeable shop associates will gladly assist you in selecting the perfect garden accent pieces and beautiful accessories to enhance your garden decor. Embrace Garden Month at the Cummer and be the topic of conversation at your next gathering.

“The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for mirth, one is nearer Gods heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth.”
Happy Gardening!
