These pages (Page 6 and Page 7) are only price corrected.  As we get nearer to the conclusion of the price edits I will go back and look at the layout.  If anyone has some nice photos that they think may look nice for a cover send them my way. Here is what the 2008 cover  looked like.

Landscaping with Flagpoles or Where should I put the flagpole?

When you purchase a flagpole to fly the American flag you should consider the installation as a landscaping project. First take a look at your yard and home in combination with garage and driveway, the big picture.

 Now ask the question, where should I put the flagpole?  Remember balance!  Different height flagpoles will look better at different distances from the home.  Some homes lend their features to the right or left of the home, some right in front, with others in front of the breeze way. All in all this is you first and main consideration. Please consider the first and second rule when determining a location.

First rule: Flagpole should not put the flag above the roof line.  Certainly a 35′ flagpole in front of a small ranch will not look as good as a 35′ flagpole just off the side of the same house creating its own display with maybe a garden around the flagpole.  Second rule: Keep the flagpole away from obstructions, ie tree branches, gutters etc.  With this rule remember trees grow. After flagpole installation remember to dress up the base of the flagpole with your choice of vegetation from landscaping blocks, flowers to bushes.  Let your imagination go!Home with Flagpole For all your flag and flagpole needs visit Flag-Works over America
