Copper does not rust, which makes it suitable for outdoors. As it ages its color will change, too; from rusty red, through deep brown, to noble looking, green patina, -so enhancing, in any garden setting.
If you come across existing copper objects (see organ pipes on the right), try recycling them into your own, unique garden statue, or just use new plumbing pipes, and put them together into fences,
trellises, and other forms, that might capture your imagination See more Copper Pipes Ideas, here.
