Embrace a change of decoration this season and add the gentle lustre of copper to your outdoor living space with Modern Garden's pick of the best copper accessories for your garden.
Exterior brass and copper lighting became all the rage during the Edwardian and Victorian times due to brass and copper being easy material to work with.

Despite having none of these issues now, there is something so stylish and classic about copper décor, and they make great statement pieces indoors or outdoors.
Here is our pick of copper pieces from chairs and candles to plant tags and lamp posts to give your garden that extra something this season.

How to clean copper decor?
The best way to clean any copper furniture or objects is to take a soft cloth and dampen it with some warm water. Then the object with some soap and use the cloth to wipe across the object's surface two or three times. Then wipe it clean with a new cloth.
Another method of cleaning and polishing smaller copper items is to boil some water and add some vinegar and one tablespoon of salt. When the salt has dissolved, place the copper item in the water, then the tarnish will come off, and you will be left with polished copper.
