A gentle breeze not only cools you down pleasantly in spring and summer, it can also sound wonderful. Chimes for the garden make the wind audible and are the ideal garden accessory. You can find out here which materials are available, how they sound and which place in the garden is suitable for the new chime.

The material of the chime influences the tones. Models made of metal sound different than those made of wood or a mix of materials.

Apart from the material, the size and shape of the chime also determines the sound.

Sound cylinders are open tubes of different lengths. They are reminiscent of an organ, because the length of the cylinder determines their pitch. A chime has harmonious, coordinated tones that create a beautiful sequence of tones. As soon as the wind causes the chime to vibrate, the tones are created. On the one hand, because the sound cylinders hit against each other or, on the other hand, because of a clapper in the middle of the chime.

Also known are chimes in the form of a glockenspiel. The sound elements are reminiscent of bells and are also set in motion by the wind and made to sound.

Chimes can be placed anywhere where the wind can move them. You just need something to attach it to. This can be the eaves of the house or the branch of a tree. If you don’t have either, you can help yourself with a practical stand that simply sticks into the ground.
