You can do something similar, but square, with landscape timbers. If it extends much beyond the basket, some people are going to step on it.

I've also seen a wider terrace, so that a disc that lands within 5' or so of the pole is on it, and so the basket isn't above ground level unless you're far enough out for it to matter.
Kind of what David is referring to. This is hole #18 at Turkey Hill in LaPlata, Maryland. They made a second level so player can stand and putt out or retrieve their discs.

spearfish in sd has some elevated baskets hanging by two close trees (course had at least 3 of this)

brp has the hanging basket hole suspended by a branch and a stump to jump on to retrieve your disc

We have hired a concrete sculpture/artist to do tees and rocks on many of our elevated baskets in Charlotte. Here are a few examples at hornets nest and Sugaw creek.

I second this, especially if you're wishing to make the hole harder. A mound that has a peak a few feet before the basket makes approaching extremely difficult.
