Using obelisks as architectural elements in your garden is a technique used by designers to add structure to the most sophisticated of flower gardens, the effervescent informal cottage garden, or the kitchen garden.
Obelisks come in all sorts of sizes and various styles to suit most situations, and can even be designed to suit most slopes and inclines, so are very adaptable in where they can be positioned. So if you need a petite one for a small flower bed or several large ones to add
structure to a long border, you will find an obelisk to suit almost any situation. On wintery frosty mornings the obelisk stands tall and glistening as the light plays on the frost and icicle clad vertical and lateral obelisk ties and struts and in the early morning mist they appear as ethereal shades, adding interest into an otherwise
dull and dreary winter garden.
Come the springtime your plants become alive, twining themselves around the legs and the cross struts, bringing the obelisk to life, with clematis, roses or the vines that you have chosen to plant around the obelisk.
Wooden Garden Obelisks are, for me, the ideal. Beautiful and (ours at least) strong. I don’t think there is anything more beautiful than timber, which also has a natural affinity with all garden plants as well as being the only material that is a renewable resource used for the manufacture of Obelisks. So about as green as you can get.
