Material


One of your first considerations should be the material of the stand itself. Gazing ball stands need to be able to survive outdoors without being damaged by the weather. The metal also needs to be reliable enough to hold the ball in place in windy environments.

For these reasons, wrought iron is considered one of the best materials for outdoor gazing ball stands. Stainless steel is likewise durable and heavy enough to maintain a constant position.

Brass and copper are both excellent choices as well because they are strong, durable, and resistant to corrosion. A brass gazing ball stand will be slightly more expensive than iron or stainless steel, but it adds an extra aesthetic element that will impress anyone who sees it.

Height


The height of your gazing ball stand is another important consideration. Ideally, your gazing ball should have full visibility throughout the year. This means investing in a ball stand that is at least several inches more than the height of the plant itself. Many stands range between 20 and 30 inches; however, there are some stands that are designed to sit much closer to the ground.

Size


Finally, you want to consider the diameter of the stand where the ball will be situated. Gazing balls come in a variety of sizes and you need to choose a stand with a similar diameter. Most stands are able to accommodate gazing balls in a very small range of 2-to-3 inches of a specific diameter.
