Metals and Nature reviews
We have driven past this place a few times and decided to stop today. They have so many unique items and I could have spent several hours here. We took our 4 kids and they enjoyed the animals and all.... more »
Such an interesting place! And Diego is quite a character -- he is making a custom gate for our courtyard. The pig is adorable and the peacocks are beautiful. more »

Metals and Nature was my favorite destination in Plant City! We met family members in Plant City and visited a few places. I loved this cute Garden Center. I had so much fun walking the paths filled with concrete statuary of all shapes and sizes, along with the beautiful metal artwork. While walking the paths we had pet peacocks follow along fanning their beautiful tales, we also came across an amazing Large Pet Pig, so cute hanging out with his friend the rabbit. It was really shaded by the tree canopy so no chances of burning in the sun. What a great way to spend an hour visiting with family from out of town! We could not resist and ended up bring home a couple of friends, a cute frog and owl! We will definitely be returning for more treasures. We visited from Venice, fl.
