Topiary Garden

Elegant square pots, featuring cone-shaped topiary, frame the door and bring the planting right up to the house. The subtle purples, lilacs, and pinks in this border contrast with the sharp outlines of the dark green spheres.

Morning Lit Topiaries

Boxwood spheres are laid out in a strictly formal pattern, and cast intriguing shadows across the smooth lawn.

Boxwood Garden

Contemporary style doesn’t have to mean steel and glass; it can, as shown here, mean a new interpretation of a traditional topiary and flower garden.
