Flag Pole Base



Brick and mortar planter base for 24' flag pole in our front yard.
1. dig hole 3'x16"x16"
2. set cinder block on it's side in bottom of hole - level it
3. set flag pole sleeve in one cinder block hole, fill with small stones around it and bubble level it often
4. put in ballast stones and fill with cement (mixed w hammer drill) - level cement
5. build up bricks on cement. I went from 8x8 under ground to 10x10 bricks at ground level so plants drain well. I used bricks I had around so alternated the color to get enough. I got lucky!
6. celebrate fourth at home around our new flag this year
