There are 2 types of people in the world, those who love topiary trees and gardens and those who don’t.
Okay, that’s a bit simplified, but there’s a ring of truth to it. I fall in the first camp; I enjoy the ingenuity and manicured nature of topiary designs. Some even construct
elaborate mazes from carefully trimmed hedges. However, I can understand how people find them artificial and perhaps even an affront to gardens.
For all of you who love looking at stunning topiary
trees, gardens, plants, animals and other shapes, enjoy our 53 topiary pictures below.
