Usually specialty garden structures like these are built over the winter when things slow down. My husband and I run GreenCraft. Our schedules are completely full now, so I couldn't see being able to build anything until late June or perhaps July. Again, we've never really shipped these before and they are quite large (taller than me!) so I really need to spend a little time researching the best way to do so, and if that is something we even want to delve in to (the ones pictured above are made of mahogany; they are very heavy. We have made others with cedar, which are significantly lighter). If you're in a rush, you could try a carpenter or fencing contractor. Show them images of things you like and see what they could do for you. Best of luck and I will certainly get back to you if we do have good results with shipping options, etc...

Do you have a suggested plant list? Looking to do something similar with my Harvard, MA garden.

mark bracket locations; core drill into wall; set custom bolts into drill locations with two part masonry epoxy. Recommend top of stone wall to have hand selected flat wide stones to minimize grout lines and provide secure top that has less chance of popping.

Wow!! So beautiful. That is really a master piece of traditional landscape. After seeing this image I also though to making this type of garden.

Obelisk - I too have been on the hunt for attractive Obelisks. Yours are fabulous! Can you tell me if you have plans for the Obelisks shown in your photo? We can make it, but it would be helpful to have dimensions. Thank you.

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for showing interest in these custom obelisks. I am in the process of developing these and other items for production and I am experimenting with several prototypes. The Tall obelisks shown here were constructed from recycled mahogany deck wood that was ripped and sanded to size. There were no original plans, I just winged it. However the overall dimensions are: 4'-10" tall to the upper plate (not the acorn), by 1'-2" square top and 2' square at the bottom. I used stainless steel screws countersunk and predrilled the holes. Hope this helps!

Good luck

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Climbing plants can either cling or vine. Clinging plants have special roots or sticky growths that can adhere to almost any surface. Twining vines twist around objects tightly as they grow.

1. Make garden plans. Check out gardening books from the library, start a garden journal, research choices for an edible garden, plan for seasonal color, make sketches and start ordering seeds. Round up your garden tools, pots and other supplies, and keep a list of things you’ll need for the spring so that you’ll be ready to go. It’s the next best thing to getting to dig in the dirt. Don’t have a garden? Research community gardens in your area, or look into volunteering at a local botanical garden. Attend a local garden show or conservatory in the meantime, and make plans to visit a botanical garden or take a spring garden tour when the blossoms begin in your zone. It will be something nice to look forward to.Planting Time! How to Order From the Garden Catalogs
