To fully understand why the stone urn is so popular, we must understand where it came from and the history surrounding it.

Urns in History

Urns are traditional vases that are a very distinctive shape and are ornately decorated. Larger urns are less likely to contain anything other than flowers as they are designed with decoration in mind. These ornamental urns are a focal point in any garden but given the right setting, they are perfectly able to accent your garden in style.

There are other types of urn that have a much more practical use, for example burial urns have been used for centuries to contain the ashes of loved ones. There are many other types of urn that the public will be familiar with – such as the infamous cricket prize The Ashes. (Source)

Large ornamental urns are often associated with and have been used to decorate popular places such as Buckingham Palace which gives the urn that regal feeling. If you’re looking for a way to give your private garden - or even commercial garden – a make-over fit for royalty, then a stone urn might be just what you need.
