Landscaping Peace Poles:
Anything done to the landscape helps; anything that shows thought and attention beyond sticking it in the ground; anything that points to it or leads to it; anything that frames its presence, like surrounding it with a circle of mulch or gravel or pavers. One rock could be set in the ground a few feet away on each of its many sides, or lights could point at it (or be inside of some peace poles), or contours made in the ground, or barriers like hedges, or a circle of saplings around it can help.
