Timber Obelisks
Finding the right focal point for your garden has never been easier.

Colin and Kay Thompson design and hand craft some of the most delightful  timber obelisks available for use in the garden. This is proven with the fact that their finished products can be seen in some of the most beautiful private and open gardens anywhere.
 
The design and craftsmanship shown in the oak or western red cedar obelisks is meticulous at every stage. The finished surfaces can be either left untreated to weather naturally or treated with paint or a coloured stain. 
 
The tallest units to be made so far are eight feet high and would provide a dramatic focal point in a larger space.  The Thompsons are keen to supply the correct obelisks for the right location and work closely with their clients to achieve this. Part of the service is delivery and where requested the installation into position on site.

As a direct result of visitor comments on their Hampton Court Flower Show stand in early July this year they went back and designed an obelisk with an integral planter unit built into the base, this was launched at the Sandringham Show in late July and now has ‘registered design status’. A quote on their website highlights this, “If you can’t find what you need, please call us and we will make it for you”
