You can choose your copper for the garden from assorted finishing options. Copper looks fantastic when paired with enamels for color. Many love natural copper which will develop a fine patina over time when used outdoors. Or seal your copper pieces with a clear protective coating that will always keep the warm luster and shine. It all depends on your style.
