When searching for the perfect addition to your outdoor space, you may have come across Campania International.  One of the largest manufacturers in the United States of cast stone fountains, statues, planters, and other accents.  One of the most unique things about Campania International is their pairing with different historical institutions and museum to create garden collections that not only look beautiful, but bring a sense of history right into your own outdoor space.  One collection by Campania International highlights originals that were found in the estate of Pierre du Pont, who was the main founder and designer of Longwood Gardens located in Pennsylvania.

The Longwood Gardens collection by Campania International includes reproductions that date back to as early as the 20th century. These reproductions date back to the 1920s and 30s which was known as the Golden Age of American gardens. Each of the pieces within the collection is made out of cast stone. Ranging from fountains to planters and statues, this stone collection has a certain sense of sophistication and beauty.  The designs taken from Pierre du Pont’s collection showcase his extensive world wide traveling.

Today’s the Longwood Gardens Collection offered by Campania International includes planters planters, one statue, two fountains, and one bench.  This classic collection is designed to work in any outdoor space. From the simple, yet classic design on the Longwood Main Fountain Garden Bench, to the beautiful Longwood Arabesque Urn, each piece in this collection can showcase and dress up an area.  These wonderful pieces allow you the opportunity to enjoy the sites and beauty that Pierre du Pont saw when he created the horticultural legacy.

When choosing a garden accent for your space, you may be overwhelmed by the choices.  A piece from the Longwood Gardens collection is not only beautiful, but also adds a certain sense of history.
