We’re having a seriously dry summer here in New England. Our grass was basically hay when we got back from the lake. And of course our back yard and side yards are still rolling on 60+ years of overgrowth, so naturally I’m dreaming of a tamed, verdant garden.
One thing that’s caught my eye lately on Pinterest are garden obelisks. The fancy Martha Stewart-y name for them is the French, tuteur. Garden obelisks are a great mix of form and function. They add visual interest and height but they’re also functional, providing a climbing surface for plants.
I like the idea using them to bring year-round color to the garden.
Be still my heart…..black with an artichoke on top.
These weathered wood ones are cool too.
These aren’t a pyramid shape but the idea is the same and they’re gorgeous.
This one is simple and lovely.
I need to start scoping a spot in our yard for one of these beauties. And it looks like you could DIY it easily too.
Do any of you have vertical elements in your garden?
