Garden urns and vases are beautiful, upright and unique flower pots with distinct shapes that are hard to miss. They are easy to spot because of their unique bowl shapes that sit on a pedestal.
Garden urns can add grace and beauty to any garden (large or small), and they make perfect additions to your garden. They are not only graceful and elegant but naturally draw the eyes toward them and upward to something on a higher level such as a staircase or a doorway.
Garden urns can be made from a variety of materials including fiberglass, terracotta, stoneware and plastic.
Urns in the garden will look wonderful paired together, lining a walkway, at the entrance of your front door or on either side of garden benches.

An urn can also look quite striking if it is perched on a pedestal and can serve as a wonderful centerpiece for a garden.
They can come adorned with beautiful patterns including leaves, vines, Greek patterns, garlands, shells and many more intricate designs you could ever imagine. They can also have handles on either side for easy handling in the garden.

Garden Urns Versus Garden Vases
An urn and a vase are very similar to each other, which is why (in general) the two terms are used interchangeably. The smallest difference between them is that urns originally came with covers or tops and were first used to hold the ashes of the dead. Vases on the other hand, are usually uncovered and can be adorned even more than an urn with intricate designs.
Either way you look at it, these two are virtually the same kind of planter because their shapes are the same.
