What is a wind spinner?

Also referred to as wind rockers, wind spinners are beautiful and characterful additions to any garden, a fact that makes them a vital aspect of garden design and decoration. Traditionally, wind spinners had a more practical purpose; they were used to identify wind direction.

Consisting of a solid pole that’s easily staked into soft ground, wind spinners and rockers are topped with a unique focal point, which sits at the centre of two balanced balls or weights. 


How can a wind spinner enhance your garden?

Featuring a range of delightful, geometric and aerodynamic shapes, our wind spinners are designed to enhance the garden in the simplest and most mesmerising way.

Easy to install and able to gracefully spin, tilt and turn to follow the wind, spinners are well known for their aesthetic appeal and therapeutic benefits. Wind spinners are a joy to watch on those windier days when using your garden isn’t always practical. They also provide an elegant display during more pleasant conditions, dancing softly in those spring and summer breezes.
