Are you looking to add a touch of magic and whimsy to your garden? Wind spinners, those enchanting, twirling sculptures, may be just what you need. These mesmerizing garden ornaments not only bring visual delight but also create a sense of tranquility as they sway in the breeze. Let's embark on a journey into the world of wind spinners and discover the proper care to keep them twirling gracefully.
The Magic of Wind Spinners
Wind spinners come in all shapes and sizes, from delicate butterflies to radiant sunbursts and celestial moons. The way they catch the wind and reflect light is simply mesmerizing. They're like garden dancers, gracefully pirouetting with the elements, and adding a sprinkle of enchantment to your outdoor space.
Choosing the Perfect Wind Spinner
When selecting a wind spinner for your garden, consider the following:
Material: Wind spinners are typically made from metal, glass, or even durable plastics. Metal spinners are sturdy and weather-resistant, making them a popular choice. Sill and Sage windspinners are made from sturdy metal, powder coated to protect from the elements, and hand painted to finish.
Size: Choose a size that complements your garden's layout. Smaller spinners can fit nicely in flower beds, while larger ones can become a focal point.
Design: Select a design that resonates with your personal style and the overall theme of your garden. Bright and cheerful, or subtle and elegant, we have something to suit every garden!
Proper Care for Wind Spinners
Wind spinners are relatively low-maintenance, but a little care can go a long way in ensuring they continue to dazzle in your garden:
Regular Cleaning: To keep your wind spinner looking its best, give it a gentle cleaning from time to time. Use a soft cloth or sponge with mild soapy water to remove dirt and grime. Rinse it thoroughly, and let it dry.
Seasonal Checkup: As seasons change, inspect your wind spinner for any signs of wear and tear. Look for loose parts or rust spots. We suggest applying a protective coating to keep it looking vibrant. Australian weather is harsh, so protect from the sun and rain with a coat of clear or matt polyurethane spray, silicone spray or anti-rust spray to keep you spinner looking like new!
Maintenance for Moving Parts: If your wind spinner has moving parts, like ball bearings or swivels, check them periodically. Lubricate them with an anti-rust lubricant like WD-40 to ensure smooth spinning.
Wind Positioning: For optimal performance, position your wind spinner in an area with good air circulation. They are not designed for cyclones so avoid placing in very windy spots, and take down in high winds. Most of our windspinners are designed with tops that quickly lift off for ease of removal in high wind situations.
Wind spinners are like the icing on the cake of your garden, adding a sprinkle of joy and beauty to your outdoor space. Proper care ensures that they continue to dance with grace and charm. So, why wait? Choose the perfect wind spinner that resonates with your style, give it the care it deserves, and let it spin its way into the hearts of all who visit your garden. Embrace the whimsy, and let your garden become a true masterpiece of delight. Happy spinning!
