With spring upon us and summer coming soon, many people start to think about improving their landscaping and developing their garden. Steampunk decor doesn’t have to remain indoors; it can also be added to your garden decor. Whether you just add a few small touches, create a steampunk fairy garden or turn your entire backyard into a steampunk wonderland, you can find some great ideas here to steampunk your garden decor.
Depending on how large your garden space is, your choice may be limited by size. I hope you enjoy browsing the garden decor on this page.
Lighted Steampunk Dragon Sculpture
This dragon sculpture is designed to go outdoors. It is from Wind & Weather and according to them, “He looks like he could spring to life at any moment, gears turning, flapping his mechanical wings to fly off into the night and shoot bursts of fire into the air. Fortunately, he’s just a particularly stunning piece of art and, we assure you, completely inanimate. That said, he is definitely the kind of dragon Jules Verne or H.G. Wells would have imagined and totally embodies the steampunk look.”
Wind & Weather has created a sculpture that is handcrafted from 100% black iron, ready for display indoors or out. His body cavity is filled with white LED string lights so that even in the dark, his majestic presence dominates the landscape. You do have to assemble it and add 3 AA batteries which are not included. Still, awesome!
Dragon Garden Sculpture With Solar Globe
Or maybe you’d rather have this dragon guarding your garden. This Dragon Garden Sculpture is less Steampunk, but still made of metal which blends well with a Steampunk theme. Also from Wind & Weather (so you know it’s made for the outdoors), it comes with a solar-powered globe that lights up after dark. You can save a lot of money if you buy this from Amazon. Wind & Weather currently has this for $119.00, while on Amazon it’s $79.95.
According to Wind & Weather, in some cultures, dragons represent nature, spirituality and the universe. A dragon is sometimes depicted holding a “flaming pearl.” Our two-foot tall solar iron dragon statue is ready to keep watch over your home or garden, while lighting your path, with his solar powered globe. During the day this dragon’s plastic “pearl” will collect the sunlight, to release a color-changing glow at night. Place this colorfully painted, weather-durable dragon sculpture at your driveway, on your deck or patio or among your flowers, and collect compliments on this unusual piece of outdoor art. For brightest glow, place this mighty beast’s globe in full sun.
Adding Victorian Architecture to Your Garden with a Gazebo
For large gardens, a gazebo instantly brings out the Victorian ambiance, which can be enhanced with the right flowers and plants. This gazebo is from Design Toscano, an instant gathering point and statement piece for any garden for time alone or a social gathering.
This delightfully ornate, more than 10-foot-tall, octagonal garden gazebo has a 43-square-foot interior space ideal for a table, a bench or as the perfect spot for a special ceremony. Its solid, durable, classic arches of quality curved steel are accented with metal florette detailing and crowned with a stately finial. Constructed of rust-resistant, powder-coated, 7/8″ tubular steel in a lustrous chocolate brown finish, this classic piece of garden architecture is pure French style. Its bracketed feet allow for optional permanent installation. You do have some assembly to install it.

Add Steampunk Style Lighting to Your Garden
Smaller garden and patio spaces can take on the steampunk vibe with new lighting such as these shown here available on Wayfair. Each has an antique style that is reminiscent of the Victorian era. You can choose to buy them in several different finishes including the black and copper shown here. These can be installed near doorways or along the walls of your patio or garden space.
Or Under Your Awning or Pergola
If you have an indoor patio or a patio space that is covered with an awning or pergola, you might prefer these types of lights shown below. A pendant light in industrial style can hang from your pergola adding both light and style to the outdoor area. String lights can be used on a regular basis for added lighting or just for entertaining when you want to have additional lighting for guests. The unique bulbs add to the steampunk atmosphere without much fuss or time to install.
Smaller Steampunk Touches for Your Patio or Garden
You can also add smaller decorations to your home or garden such as the 3 shown below. Each is eye-catching and will add another detail to your steampunk patio and garden decor. You don’t need a large garden for these type of decorations, because they don’t take up very much room. It is easy to create nooks and crannies for smaller decorations, sculptures or hidden creatures to be discovered in and around your outdoor space.
