Cricket Hill Garden
Bob Keating Trefoil
We are delighted to offer another of Bob Keating's fuctional sculptures for the garden. The Trefoil is a graceful support made of steel that will gently hold the foliage of your plants upright. Designed for dahlias or perennials, these structures will add whimsical beauty while corralling errant stems.
We first came to know Bob Keating's work on a visit to the New York Botanical Garden to see the newly renovated Matelich herbaceous peony garden a few years ago. He is a lifelong gardener and metal artist with a studio in Southbury, CT. His whimsical yet sturdy and functional works live in many of the fine gardens of northwestern Connecticut. Read a profile of Bob and his work in the Litchfield County Times here.
The Trefoils will last a lifetime!
Here are the details:
* Constructed of carbon steel, they will acquire a rust patina with age.
* The rings weigh 6lbs each and are very stable, the legs only need to be pushed a few inches into the ground.
* The opening's diameter is 18" wide, the legs are 24" tall.
About shipping: Shipping on the trefoils is quite expensive. These are shipped in a heavy duty, high-crush test, doubled walled box which adds to cost of shipping one ring. We are not making any money in the shipping. It is simply quite expensive to ship these garden supports.
Shipping 1 Trefoil is not an economical option. 3 Trefoils fit perfectly into the box, so we are only offering sets of 3 for shipping. Single Trefoils may only be PICKED UP at the nursery.
