Metal Garden's FAQs
You can protect your sculptures with a product called Penetrol found at Bunnings. It’s recommended to apply on your sculpture once a year. If you live near the sea and get salt exposure, it’s recommended to apply every 6 months.
Yes, we deliver in all states and territories, including Tasmania.
We use Mild Steel because this is the most cost effective to keep prices low for our customers. Our steel is also Australian made and readily available to ensure that our sculptures are made on time.
We used to have a shop at the Mill Castlemaine, but we closed it due to being too busy with our online store. We do have a workshop in Marong that customers can visit by appointment.
No, we use a plasma cutter.
No, we are so flat out that we only have time to concentrate on online retail orders.
We only do sculptures up to 1 metre square. These dimensions are limited by Australia Post. We found that sculptures that are bigger need to be sent via courier which is very expensive and not worth the price for the customer.
Yes, all our sculptures are made in Australia, near Bendigo by multi-award winning sculptor, Richard Kloester. Metal Garden has been officially verified by ausowned.com.au.
Metal Garden is proudly a small business and the quality of your sculptures is guaranteed because just one award winning sculptor creates your sculptures from start to finish. Because we aren’t a big company you can be assured that your sculptures are made with love.
All sculptures are handmade to order. It takes an average of 2 to 3 weeks for your sculpture to be made. Then 1 to 2 weeks to be delivered. However, if your order is urgent we can accommodate and send your order within days. When you place your order write in the comments that you need your order urgently and we will make your order a priority.
We are so confident with our unique sculptures, we will refund your money if you are not happy with your purchase. Your sculpture must be returned in good condition and this guarantee is only valid if you change your mind within 30 days of receiving your sculpture. Also, if you receive your sculpture in a damaged condition we will replace with a new sculpture as long as you return the damaged sculpture to Metal Garden.
Metal Garden used to do markets for many years. But with online shopping there is no need to travel to find us. We are so busy we no longer have time for markets.
