I chose one that is 6’ above the ground in the end, i thought the one 3-4’ above would be too short.
I’ve bought Clematis Niobe and planted it to grow through it.
Having assembled it and erected it i’m now thinking it’s actually too large because it looks very tall and very naked where it is, i may well replace it with a 5’ one and put this 6’ one into the front garden (shucks, this means buying another climber for it!
When i look at it, it looks too close to the 2 small steps (within the wall) that lead onto the top lawn and when walking up there your right arm has to be moved into your body or you’d touch the obelisk.
I’m thinking i’ll get the small wigwam one but i noticed on those that the amount that gets pushed into the ground is minimal and therefore, would the wind shift it ?
I’d be very interested to hear from other obelisk owners !!!
