Adding a Flag Pole to Your Outdoor Space

Creating the perfect outdoor space for your home or business requires a careful combination of hardwork and artistic design. There is a whole range of different features that you could add to your outdoor space to improve it, including things like outdoor dining areas, barbecues and flagpoles.

Although many people wouldn’t even think about adding one to their back – or front – yard, flagpoles can actually make a great addition to your landscaping design. They offer a huge range of benefits, and can really compliment other features of your yard. Think about the following 4 reasons why you should consider adding a flagpole to your yard:

  1. Flagpoles can be used to draw the eye

If you want to draw people’s eyes to a certain part of your yard – or indeed, away from a certain area – then the best thing to do is place something large and commanding in their line of sight. Flagpoles are tall, imposing and are great for drawing people’s eyes to certain parts of your garden.

For example, if you’ve got a special garden bed or some sort of feature that you want to make the centerpiece of your garden, then you should consider adding a flagpole nearby so that people naturally look in that direction.

  1. Flagpoles let you display your patriotism

Most people use their flagpole to display their favourite flag. Many people choose to display the flag of their country of origin. If you’re a particularly patriotic person or are simply proud of your heritage, then consider adding a flagpole to your yard so that you can show the world.

  1. Flagpoles can be used for advertising too

If you own or run a small business, then you might choose to use your flagpole as an advertising medium. A lot of people will hang their national flag or the flag of some organisation at the top of their flagpole, followed by a flag advertising their business underneath. However, you don’t necessarily have to do this, and some businesses use their flagpole for the sole purpose of advertising their services.

With this in mind, we’re going to outline the main styles of pool fencing, the benefits and disadvantages of each and a few things we think you should know before you choose a style for your home. The main styles of pool fencing on the market today include:

Frameless Glass Pool Fencing

Frameless glass pool fencing is an extremely attractive option which is becoming common throughout Australia. Frameless glass fences are usually made from tough glass panels which are secured at the bottom with some sort of shiny silver stainless steel fixtures. Although they don’t always look very strong, frameless glass fences are just as secure as other styles when they’re built right.

Frameless glass is a very attractive option if your swimming pool and outdoor entertaining areas are seperate. It allows you to clearly see between the two areas, which makes summer entertaining easier than ever. It is also relatively low maintenance and very easy to clean.
