How to create impressive topiary

Ideas for topiary

Making a statement in any garden, topiary is a truly green art. Whether you want to draw the eye to a specific area, create some distinctive definition or simply have some fun, you can consider a topiary shape or figure as a piece of living architecture.

To create topiary shapes it's best to choose densely growing, typically evergreen species such as box or yew. Thick branches, branching into finer and finer twigs form the main lines of the finished shape. To train the branches in the right direction, fasten the flexible twigs with wire.
