Planting – Installing
For installation of a symbolic granite peace pole, all that is required is a 32″ deep post hole. No cement is necessary. Once the pole is in it, tamp the earth that came out of the hole back in around it. It makes the peace pole more or less invisible in the earth, which is good, by having what is holding it up just be more of the same earth that is surrounding it.
Above and below are closeups. The distance away and the light shining on them make these differences in appearance.

A larger Symbolic Granite Peace Pole also is available
This one also has 7 sides but is 12 feet long, 14 inches in diameter, weighs 3,200 pounds and costs $20,500 delivered to your site.
Below is a granite peace pole that is larger than the one described above. It is unusual in that the translations are on granite monoliths surrounding the peace pole providing surfaces on which people can sit. People say “Meet you at the peace pole” and then sit on the monoliths. A couple of standard benches would suffice for this and would be much less expensive. But the effect of the monoliths is to encircle people in the embrace of the peace pole making it a very nice destination.
This granite peace pole garden is in Beech Acres Park in Cincinnati, Ohio. It cost $65,000 (a couple decades ago) with the landscaping and monoliths and the several winding walkways providing different paths leading to peace.
