Topiary from Ornamental Trees Ltd
<p>Ornamental Trees offer a great range of topiary plants for formal planting schemes and striking garden features. Topiary trees are an art which fall under the category of living structure. Topiary trees are normally made from evergreen plants with dense foliage and a compact habit. Popular topiary tree species include: Box (Buxus sempervirens), Photinia, Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis) and Holly (Ilex).</p>
<p>Topiary requires a skilled hand capable of creating precise, clear shapes. However, topiary shapes can be created using metal frames if you wish to cheat! Our Topiary trees have been carefully trained over time to create attractive, balanced forms by experienced nurserymen.</p>
<h2>History of Topiary Trees</h2>
<p>The use of topiary trees in formal gardens can be traced back to Roman times when a member of Julius Ceasar’s circle introduced topiary to the Roman gardens. Since then topiary trees have since gone in and out of fashion a number of times, as things do, but experienced a European revival in the 16<sup>th</sup> century parterres and terraces of the elite classes. Geometric shapes, such as balls, cones and cubes along with more whimsical forms, such as animals are used to add structure to gardens.</p>
<h2>Famous topiary trees and gardens throughout Europe:</h2>
<li>Levens Hall in Cumbria, England which is the oldest topiary garden in the world, was started in the late 17<sup>th</sup> century by the French gardener M. Beaumont.</li>
<li>Parc des Topiares in Belgium boasts over 250 topiary figures.</li>
<li>The Guggenheim museum in Spain hosts the largest topiary dog, a west highland terrier, designed by Jeff Koons.</li>
