A reference guide for first-time flag owners
Many homeowners have decided that there is no better way to show their American pride than to proudly display a US flag in their own yard. The flagpole experts at EZPOLE Flagpoles, a manufacturer and distributor of 100% American-made flagpoles, discuss some items to consider before you start flying the Stars and Stripes.
Choosing the right flagpole
For a single story home, decks, docks or for traveling purposes, a 13’ flagpole will suffice. A 17’ flagpole is recommended for mid-size homes or 2-story structures, and a 21’ flagpole is recommended for large homes or areas.
When judging the quality of a flagpole, you will want to choose an flagpole that uses 16-gauge aluminum to prevent your flagpole from bending or breaking during severe weather. To prevent your flag from becoming tangled in the wind, look for a feature like EZPOLE’s “No Wrap” Swivel System.
Finally, you can choose between a sectional flagpole, which comes in pieces and needs to be assembled, versus a telescoping flagpole like the EZPOLE telescoping flagpole that expands from 9’6” up to 21’. telescoping flagpoles are more expensive than sectionals but are much easier to use.
How to install a flagpole
- Check for underground sprinkler water lines and electrical lines before you dig.
- Dig a 22'' hole with a tapered diameter (see diagram).
- Put 2'' of gravel under base of sleeve, (allows for drainage) tamp stone.
- Place aluminum sleeve (bead down) with bottom section of flagpole into place so cement won’t fill bottom of sleeve.
- Mix bag of cement (40 pound bag) and pour into hole.
- Mound up concrete around sleeve to allow for water runoff.
(Add rocky fill to increase concrete volume).
- Use level to square vertical. Stabilize for 24 hours. Insert remaining sections.
Adding a flagpole to your yard offers a great opportunity to do some creative landscaping. Stonework is often popular around the base of a flagpole and can be combined with a variety of flower bed arrangements.
