1 Sculptural Beauty
The voluptuousness of this nymph suggests the fecundity of a healthy garden. The circa-1950 Classical-style stone figure (31” high) strikes a commanding presence, be it in the garden or on a patio or porch. $1,600, Donna Parker Habitat, 631-726-9311,

2 Canned Goods
These 1920s English watering cans, fashioned of zinc, copper, tin, or brass, add panache to any vegetable patch. $175 each, English Country Antiques, 26 Snake Hollow Rd., Bridgehampton, 631-537-0606,

This circa-1960 wrought-iron settee (44” wide), which comes in a set with three matching chairs, appears to be all tied together, with arms that end in knots and fanciful tassels. $3,000 for the set, Croft Antiques, 11 S. Main St., Southampton, 631-283-6445,

4 Web Site
Some might liken this circa-1950 white-enameled fiberglass garden chair, one of a pair, to a spider web, albeit a comfy one with no eight-legged residents to worry about. The ornate pattern reflects an early expression of modernism, when structure was celebrated rather than concealed. $3,600 for the pair, Apsara, 631-329-3553,

5 Ripe for the Picking
This 19th-century cast-concrete French topiary, one of a pair (20½” high, 12” diameter), will make any garden seem more fruitful. $2,900 for the pair, Gustavo Olivieri Antiques,
74 Montauk Hwy., East Hampton, 631-537-2811,
