 Obelisks are a quick and easy way to add visual interest to your garden this summer. I especially love them in the middle of raised bed (like the image below)...but let's be honest they look good just about anywhere! They make such a statement...just like the focal point of a room, obelisks command attention! I'd love to *someday* add a few of these to our yard! 

Here are some of my inspiration photos:

Build trellises, obelisks, or tuteurs into your raised beds or buy one or two to grow vining crops such as peas, beans, cucumbers, and even tomatoes. The extra height brings more visual drama to your plantings, especially if most of what you grow is relatively low.

Who wouldn't be inspired by this stunning garden? Find more beautiful outdoor spaces:
