Whether you use them to hang bird feeders, lanterns, or flower baskets, shepherd's hooks conveniently allow you to add another layer to your garden with minimal effort. Shepherd's hooks are usually made of steel or wrought iron. Different hooks have different weight capacities and this is often determined by the thickness of the pole and whether it's solid or hollow. Height can vary drastically as well, and it's also worth noting that you'll lose a few inches once your shepherd's hook is staked. While shorter models can work of lightweight flower pots and lights, you might want something taller for bug zappers or bird feeders. As far as rust protection goes, a powder coated finish will help your shepherd's hooks withstand the elements.
