Ideas for using an old cupola in the garden

by Wendy Cochran
I would like to use the cupola in the flower garden somehow. Anyone have any ideas? It's 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide, made of tin. From an old barn that my husband and I tore down.

    Sounds amazing. If there are openings in this I would put solar lights inside. I think that in self would make huge focal point.

    If you have the room turn it into a gazebo with a garden around it. I think that would be awesome!

    Oh my! What a great opportunity to have a stunning centerpiece to a small or even large garden. I can imagine a walkway circling by this that leads to a patio! Or sitting in the middle of lots of flowers...even tall flowers like day lilies would not overshadow it! Have fun and post pictures!

    I would build a stone and concrete base to set it on in the garden and do a rock garden around it. with a path made of pavers through the garden. Some solar lights would give it special lighted ambiance in the evening. Also find an old metal weather vane to put on top of it.

    My cupola ... the well had just been worked on so the yard was just beginning to get 'done' ...

    Thanks for all the ideas. I have a area with some trees and don't care to be mowing around. Plants don't grow well there because were on gravel. The cupola will be there with a path. rocks and a fence made from the barnwood.
