Building a Functional, Attractive Column Mailbox

Understanding the Basics

But before removing a single blade of grass, we examine the location to make sure it has sufficient drainage. Mild inclines can be accommodated by tiering the bottom rows. More abrupt inclines may require both drainage and a footing.

The range of materials that can be utilized for column mailboxes is astounding. Brick can be mixed and matched into any pattern; and everything from block stone to flagstone can be fitted over the column mailbox core. Also popular are cast stone and stucco creations.

Multi-Purpose Column Mailboxes

Many of the column mailbox innovations we see today can be attributed to a resurgence in practicality. Collectively, our nation has been influenced by the amazing homes restored under the Historic Preservation Act. Those folks certainly had it right… whenever possible, an item should serve more than one purpose. Thus, today we see column mailboxes that are planters, which hold planters, or are home to sundials, whirligigs, or light fixtures.
