Height of a Flagpole : How to pick the right height

Spring is here! The trees are budding and the tulips are peeking up from the frozen soil. Yard work and landscape jobs are a priority as we enjoy a beautiful lawn and garden for the summer. Thinking about an in-ground flagpole?  We offer many types and finishes of in-ground flagpoles. We can help you determine what type of flagpole works best for you.

First, lets determine how tall of flagpole  would best enhance your property.

  • Do you live in a single story or two-story home?

  • Do you live on a traditional neighborhood with standard size lots?

  • Do you live on acreage?

  • Will the pole be set near the house or away from the home?

  • If you live in a one story home & want the flagpole close to the house – no more than 20’ flagpole

  • If one story set away from the house 20′ or 25’ flagpole

  • If two story close to the house or a single story home on acreage – 25’ flagpole

  • If two story set away from house 25’to 30’ flagpole

  • If two story set away from house on large lot or acreage — 35’ or tall

      The height of the pole is dependent on the size of your flags. Are the 3’x5’? If so, you could fly 2 flags on a 20’ flagpole or taller.

    It was mentioned to take into account if you live in a 1 or 2 story home when selecting a flagpole. My father has always wanted a flagpole in front of his house. I will have to save this article for him.
