Sundials are made to be seen – both by the sun and the gardener. The dial face needs to be readable to the gardener and above the height of small plants, flowers and shrubbery that may otherwise interfere with the gnomon’s shadow. We offer a range of pedestal bases that start at 14” height and go up to 32”. Material choices range from wrought iron/steel wire to cast aluminum and cast iron pedestals. Except for our armillary sundials which only mount on 3 cast iron bases, all of our sundials work with all of our bases. You simply need to find the base that suits your budget and style.
