Ideas for Front Yard Flag Pole Landscaping
According to SFGate: “Although the flags themselves should be the point of focus, narrow, erect poles tend to stick out and benefit from landscaping to soften the dramatic pole height. Your landscaping design should accent the flag without stealing focus and should provide adequate access for raising and lowering the flag as needed.”
#1 – Make your flag pole the center of a circular design.
#2 – Create a unique shape to showcase your flag.
#3 – Use height to make your flag the center of attention.
#4 – Your flag is the main attraction when accompanied by minimal landscaping.
And here are a few of our favorite options from SFGate.com:
- Erect a small fence, such as one with iron posts connected with chains, around the flag pole flower bed to evoke a greater feeling of reverence with your flag pole landscaping.
- Add medium to large rocks or boulders among the informal plants to balance the soft plant textures with some hard texture. Bury at least one-fourth of the bottom of each rock so the rocks appear as natural fixtures in the flower bed.
- Place stepping stones in the flower bed to provide a dedicated path from the yard to access the flag pole, if desired.
- Install a spotlight in the flower bed to light up the flag pole and flower bed at night.
