I love how a garden sign can set the tone for an entire garden. It’s a simple way to infuse your personality into your little piece of the world—however sarcastic, salty, sentimental, romantic, or tell-it-like-it-is you want it to be.

Garden Signs for Unique Gardens
What’s your sign?
This collection of ideas should help you zero in on the perfect sign for your garden unless you’re like me and have a terrible time deciding.
Some of sweet, others are funny, a few are dark in humor or a tad sarcastic.
I’ve listed shopping sources wherever I’ve been able to.
I hope you find what you’re looking for.
