Garden Obelisk I

From £528.00


Metal Garden Obelisk I

Vertical stakes made of 0.79” (2 cm) steel profile tubing, horizontal loops of 2 cm 0.79” (2 cm) steel band. Hot-dip galvanised and powder coated in black. Pinecone finial aluminium hollow cast, powder coated in black. Recommended anchorage: directly in the soil without a concrete plug. It is delivered in two large, completely welded parts. Other colours on request. 10 years guarantee against rust. The rounded shape of this obelisk allows roses and vines to wrap around it as they grow, creating a beautiful spiral effect. For a simple design, plant only a few flowers around the obelisk. However if you’re looking for something more bold, plant lots of flowers so they can intertwine with each other for a busy statement piece.


Material Garden Rose Obelisk I

This obelisk is made from steel. The metal has then been hot-dip galvanised and powder coated in our standard jet black colour. Other colours are available at an additional cost. The pinecone finial is cast in aluminium.



The vertical stakes are made of 0.79” (2 cm) steel profile tubing, and the horizontal loops are made of 2 cm 0.79” (2 cm) steel band. We recommend that this obelisk is placed directly into the soil and hammered in, without using a concrete plug. It will come delivered in two parts, both of which are completely welded. This piece also comes with a 10 year guarantee against rust.




Metal Garden Obelisks for Climbing Plants

A sturdy, truly classic plant obelisk that makes even smaller gardens seem loftier and structured. Whether as solitaires, or in pairs or groups, these distinctive garden obelisks create charming vistas, transforming less remarkable corners of a garden into reveries of fragrance and colour. Installing two garden obelisks, each on either side of a garden path, is an attractive alternative to the classic Rose Arch. Gardens need decorative elements to capture attention and provide orientation. As with any eye-catching structure of this height, it is important to choose a good strategic location. In summer, under the opulent embrace of roses, clematis, woodbine or other climbing plants, the robust metal obelisk recedes from view for a time, only to come into its own again during the winter months. With its clear, elegant lines, it not only compensates the loss of leaves and flowers. Topped with the traditional Classic Garden Elements emblem – the Etruscan pinecone – it becomes an ornament of almost poetic beauty, especially against the background of a garden powdered in frost or snow.


How to train Climbing Roses on Garden Obelisks

Climbing roses tend to shoot to a great height, only to become bare lower down. To ensure the growth of sideshoots at the base of the garden obelisk, train the canes to grow around it in a spiral and to tie them in position. You will be rewarded by abundant flowering from the ground up. This also applies to shrub roses, which will be grateful for the support that prevents them becoming straggly and unkempt. Bear in mind that it is much easier to train, prune or remove roses if they are secured only at the outer side of the garden obelisk. Healthy, vigorous plants will cover this plant obelisk amply, but they should not be so luxuriant that they smother it completely.


Choose the higher, 300 cm park version of the Garden Obelisk I for Rambler Roses

Repeat-flowering roses growing to a height of up to 2.5 metres are ideal for the Garden Obelisk I. For taller climbers, especially ramblers, it is better to choose the larger park version of the obelisk. Should you prefer to use once-blooming roses, late-blooming clematis is the perfect accompaniment which enables you to prolong the flowering season.




Short Description

Climbing roses have a tendency to shoot upwards and remain smooth at the lower end. They will however blossom evenly from the ground up, when bound in a spiral around this Metal Garden Obelisk.  Hot-dip galvanised and powder coated black. Pinecone finial cast in aluminium.
