A flagpole is a great way to add a little color and variety to your landscaping design. Whether you choose a small flag pole or a large flag pole, here are three choices that are sure to inspire.
If you just want to add a little seasonal splash of color to celebrate the best of what every month has to offer, the garden flag stand is the perfect way to do it.
This flag stand is constructed of steel, and its “H” foot allows for easy installation and stability. It’s easy to install and swap out the flag of your choice on its sturdy crossbar, which accepts flags with looped seams or hook-and-grommet style arrangements.
One of the most iconic flagpole installations is the porch posts of many American craftsman-style homes. The issue with this style of flagpole is that, because of the angle of the pole, the flag tends to furl itself around the mast.
But the best way to fix that is to get a NeverFurl kit for your 45-degree or horizontal flagpole. The mounting points swivel as the flag catches high breeze. It maintaining freedom of motion and keeping it unfurled in the most unpredictable and random of gusts.
If you want to make an impression, there’s no better way to do it than with a vertical halyard flagpole. The commercial variety is well built. With aircraft-grade aluminum which is constructed of several pieces, depending on how tall it is designed to stand overall.
The halyard mechanism makes raising and lowering the colors an easy task. Most commercial vertical poles also come with a bronze finial, or topper, to trim the tip.
It all comes down to what you want to do and how much you want to spend. A vertical pole might be the way to go if you want to make a statement. Just make sure your homeowner’s association (HOA) doesn’t prohibit or limit flagpole installation.
If you want a flag as a finishing touch, the 45-degree angled flagpole is a timeless way to display yours.
