If your bell has the “A” frame mounts, you can mount the “A” frames on treated 4 x 4s and place it on the ground or concrete patio blocks. If you want a more sturdy mount, you can weld steel “I” Beams to 3-4 inch steel posts that can be sdet into the ground at whatever level uou desire. These can be fabricated by any metal fabricator for $100-$200. If your bell has a “U” shaped bracket, it can be mounted on a treated wood 4 x 4 post or mounted on a steel post. An 18 inche bell could have either type of mount. You should also plan to provide a protective paint coating since this bell is cast steel and will rust if exposed to the elements without a rust retardant coating.
