Since our humble beginnings operating out of the back of a hardware store in 1981, our company has been built on innovation and dedication to affordable garden décor. Little did we realize that we would one day become the world’s largest supplier of hand-blown glass gazing globes.
Having introduced the hose guide to America among other innovative firsts, our history is a testament to the company’s pioneering spirit. Before the company started selling gazing globes we developed the first wrought iron stand to hold them back in 1993. This was novel to the industry at the time, as gazing globes had always been sold in conjunction with concrete or terracotta birdbath pedestals. This innovation opened the door to a realm of accessories and the introduction of new materials such as lightweight polystone, ceramic and wood.
In 2004 we launched the hugely successful line of Echo Valley® Illuminaries® – glow in the dark gazing globes, garden stakes, pot stickers and more. Patented luminescent crystals found within our glass accents set them apart from the crowd and make them unique. These crystals absorb light energy from the sun during the day and emit a soft green glow for hours after dusk. We have since taken this technology to the next level by combining it with metal and resin garden sculpture to create distinctly different product lines under the Illuminaries® umbrella.
Building on the success of Illuminaries, we introduced the LunaLite™ “active solar” family of products, which greatly extends the duration and brightness of the luminescent glow.
As one of the earliest adapters of solar technology for use outdoors, we were the first company to employ active solar technology in a line of birdbaths that double as fountains thanks to a solar driven water pump that sits in a hidden reservoir. The beauty of the Echo Valley® solar birdbath is the fact that it requires no batteries or wires to operate, making it an environmentally friendly product.
We have long-standing reputation for beautifully crafted hand-blown glass products. Our stylish and functional Genesis™ glass birdfeeders, birdbaths, and hummingbird feeders are prime examples. At the epicenter of Echo Valley’s glass capabilities, however, is our selection of gazing globes. No where will you find a wider variety of sizes, colors, and designs to choose from.
Here at Echo Valley® we are dedicated to giving you the highest level of customer service as we push the limits of form and functionality to bring you the coolest products under the sun (and moon!).
