Topiary

Topiary is the art of clipping or trimming live shrubs or trees into decorative shapes. The earliest topiary was probably the simple development of edgings, cones, columns, and spires to accent a garden scene.

I must assume that the gardeners had a considerable amount of "free-time" on their hands, in order to do this extra work.

Topiary is an awesome art and it requires a lot of imagination and some practice. It has been an aesthetic element in the garden design for many centuries. Everyone can create his own plant sculpture only with a proper frame and suitable plants. There is endless choice of forms and the figure can be positioned practically anywhere – in the garden, in a greenhouse, indoors.
