Great for Clematis

Better than tomato trellises
By Linda at Fingers in the Dirt

About Me Avid Gardener, Master Gardener
Comments about Plowhearth Classic Garden Obelisks:
I had been looking for a replacement for ugly, flimsy tomato cages and bought three obleisks three years ago. They are fabulous for tomatoes (the 5 ft size) and look wonderful in the garden when the plants are gone. I'll never go back to the cages.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Prepared to Paint in a Couple of Years
from Wirtz, VA
About Me Getting Started
I am using the product in area where it is hard for anything to grow- its purpose is primarily for decorative enhancement to house. Since I am not a handy person, the assembly instructions for me were poor. It consisted of just pictures. The product was well packaged, but the coating still scratched-which is a complaint that I read in other reviews. For the price and the outside garden purpose of the product, I expected a heavy duty paint covering. The product will most likely rust in a relatively short time where it was scratched. Overall I like the design of the product, and I would recommend it to a friend with the warning that they may have to repaint it in a couple of years.

smaller height better design

About Me Avid Gardener
5 ft height allows for more perfect design. The 7 ft obelisk was not aligned so looks defective.

Beautiful garden structure
Beautiful in my garden as is, but can't wait for the vine to fill it in. The finish is just as pictured and looks durable. Great way to add height to your garden. Goes together easily if you start at the top to attach each band. I will be ordering another. Great value.

Perfect support for a climbing rose
By I Luv Roses
from Northern California
This is the second Obelisk I have purchased from Plow and Hearth. The first was the 5' and the second the 7'. These are easy to put together and should last a long time. My only suggestion: The web site does not make it easy to distinguish the difference between the two color choices. For some this will matter.
excellent addition to small garden
By randy's garden
from alexandria, virginia
This 7' obelisk is a great product, very sturdy, easy to assemble, bought it to support large dahlia blooms on tall stalks, and it works very well. Nice feature of the 7' model is that it assembles in stages, so you can start with a shorter version and add stages as your plant height increases. Unlike other similar products which are more expensive, this one has appropriate assembly hardware (bolts are long enough to fit assembly requirements). Highly recommended for good plant support and nice appearance.

The product came in a box full of styrofoam that had been beat to bits. Fortunately there was a return label so I could mail this back. They don't warn you it comes in 11 pieces (not including hardware). The holes line up for me but all the bolts give it a Frankenstein look. The coup de grace was the too-short finial screw that has sent me to the hardware store. I expect to have it assembled soon but this has been a disppointment
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The obilisks are to be used in container gardening at an apartment complex. They will be much more dramatic then the small flat ones I used in the past. Very sturdy constuction, ease of assembly with an "as advertised" finish. Delivery was fast, within 7 days, to my door. I will be a repeat customer.
from Vancouver, WA
Just bought all three of the obelisks...Love them!!! I've been looking at them for years and finally got them. Can't wait for Spring so I can plant them. Haven't decided whether to do veggies or flowers...or both!!! The 5' was definitely the easiest to assemble, but none of them was that difficult! Love them!!!
Solid and Lovely. Not an easy combo
from Mapleton UT
I'm using this more as a deck item rather than in my garden. I had to modify it, but the quality of the product was great and allowed me to do just what I needed. It looks great and the quality of the product shows.

It's helpful to have a dancing partner when assembling this lovely obelisk. It's lovely, sturdy and practical in our SoCal climate.The obelisk perfectly displays a spreading mandevilla amidst a variety of other flowers. It provides a nice focal point.

from Waymart, PA
I was very pleased with the product. I would suggest some roughness to be added to surface to give vines a hold. I was pleasantly surprised on how sturdy the obelisk was and how easy to place in ground.
loved this product
By happy girl
from long island, ny
Product is beautiful. Just what we have been looking for. We planted clematis and used this to vine the plant. Price was right and delivery was done in a timely fashion. First time we ordered from you and it will definitly NOT be the last. Thank you.
from Georgetown, KY
Nice product. Sturdy and very easy to assemble. Perfect for my clematis.
Great addition to my rose garden
By Garden Nana
I ordered the 5' obelisk to support a shrub rose that has canes that need to be supported. The finish is nice. It was easy to assemble in about 20 minutes. It is very sturdy, but only time will tell tell how well it survives the outdoor's elements. I looked quite awhile to find something suitable for my rose garden. The price is reasonable compared to everything else I could find. I am considering adding the taller model for a climbing rose. The only thing I am unsure of is the legs are "spiked" for inserting into the ground, but I am not sure if this will be enough to keep it from tipping as the rose puts more weight on the unit.
Great Yard & Garden Accent
from Fostoria, OH
I bought all three sizes of these Obelisks in the bronze. I planted Honeysuckle and Clematis vines which are climbining nicely on these frames. They look really nice in my landscaping. I definitely recommend these Obelisks!
Used the 5 ft. obelisk for a climbing tropical plant for indoor planter. Very sturdy and well made. I ordered in april, just received 6-24-12. So be prepared to receive it months later after you order. But was happy with purchase.
bronze vs. antique copper
from Cincinnati, Oh
So what's the color difference between bronze and antique copper? The two colors aren't identified in the photos. Bronze and antique copper are very similar colors in general, so which obelisk in the photo is which?

Great product/terrible shipping package
The product itself is great. But the shipping package was absolutely horrible, though. The box was damaged and the styrofoam inside was completely crumbled. It made a huge mess when taking the product out. We had tiny pieces of styrofoam everywhere. Very cheap shipping package.
Attractive and easy to assemble
By cat lady
from Linden, MI
It's very attractive and easy to use. I'm using it in a container for my bougainvillea on my deck. The only problem I see so far is the finial on top started rusting withing a couple of weeks.
We love our Garden Obelisk!
from Auburn, IN
The Garden Obelisk was very easy to assemble and looks great with my Autumn Clematis climbing on it! This is our second purchase - arbor last year is covered with trumpet vine!
GREAT!!!!! GREAT!!!!! GREAT!!!!!
from Coram, NY
Really nice and sturdy. Easy to put together as well. Will come back for another one in a different size.
Elegant Addition to Your Garden

Easy to assemble and looks classy. Fairly solid construction that stays upright even with heavy plants on it. Nice range of sizes.

Pending, due to backorder
We have great expectations regarding the (backordered) 7-foot garden obelisk we ordered, once you actually deliver it. In the meanwhile, we await your ability to restock the shelves -- the economy could use more in the way of available merchandise for potential customers to act on. You either help or you are part of the problem.--Steve Porter
A Great Addition to My Garden!
I purchased all three sizes of this Obelisk in the bronze color! Though it took a little time, they weren't hard to assemble. They look great in my landscaped areas. I planted honeysuckle and clematis vines and they are looking great on these obelisks! I definitely recommend this item!!!
from Siren, WI
About Me Avid Gardener, Getting Started
This is a great product. It's sturdy enough to stay up and undamaged through strong wind and storms. It's tall enough to support taller growing perennial vines. The color is a rich shade of brown & the details on the horizontal bands are very attractive.
Good quality and easy construction
from Little Rock, AR
Was very pleased with weight of metal. Especially liked the decorative design on the metal bands. Quick to assemble.
basket doesn't fit
Just put together my first 7' Obelisk, and ordered the basket which I thought went with it too. Ordered it in-store, and the cashier thought the basket only fit 5' & 7' models - not so, only the 8' model. I hope there is no issue with me returning these.
