Living Sculpture Collection

Our Living Sculpture Collection is expertly handcrafted to add dimension and delight to your landscape design. From traditional topiary shapes to more contemporary forms, our range is grown to perform in the garden.

Clouds

Popular Japanese style topiary where rounded shapes (clouds), usually balls, are clipped on the ends of a branching irregular plant structure. Perfect for Japanese gardens, they also make a striking sculptural addition to any style of garden. Ideal for creating a sense of stature without obscuring dominating the landscape.

Available varieties: Olive, Luma, Lillypillies, Sansanqua Camellias

Pleached

Create a modern statement with a hedge on stilts. Makes an ideal selection along fences and pools. For a layered effect, incorporate planting underneath. For a more informal look, allow the top to grow out, while maintaining bare trunks.

Available varieties: Lilliypillies, Laurus, Evergreen Magnolia.

Spirals

If you’re creating a formal look for your garden, make a statement with a spiral. This striking topiary shape makes a great talking point, and is ideal for adding vertical interest to the landscape. Placed in pairs on either side of an entrance creates a feeling of grandeur and oppulence.

Available varieties: Juniper Spartan

Balls & Cones

These topiary shapes are as versatile as they are interesting. Place a buxus ball or cone in an urn for a classic formal feature, or plant multiple balls in varying sizes to create a new popular landscape look. For a formal Modern native garden, try Syzygium Big Red balls with Westringia clipped hedges and Correa alba clipped swaves.

Available varieties: Buxus, Lillipillies, Sasanqua Camellias, Michelia

Hedging

Hedging forms the backbone of a garden, and can be used in different ways to create structure. Create a classic garden room, or play around with hedge heights and foliage combinations to add interest. Don’t be daunted by trimming a hedge...there are many health benefits that come from the exercise, as well as the emotional connection which comes from shaping your garden!

Available varieties: Unlimited options, including Lillypillies, Laurus, Prunus, Ficus and Evergreen Magnolias.

Standards

This traditional favourite resembles a ‘lollipop’, and makes a great garden bed feature. Underplant with low-medium shrubs to suit the style of the garden. For example, a standard Olive or Cumquat could be underplanted with Rosemary for a Mediterranean feel; Camellia or Azalea standard underplanted with Helleborus for a traditional touch; or a standard Bay tree underplanted with Rhaphiolepis for a modern twist.

Trellis

Small space? No problems. Trellis, or espaliers, are a stylish solution for small gardens. Create the ultimate inner city food garden with edible varieties. Choose a warm, sunny aspect, or keep them in pots for portability. Choose from Citrus, Pomegranates, Figs, Persimmons and more.

Living Pergolas

Released by Warners in 2015, Living Pergolas have become the ultimate contemporary shade solution for high end landscape design. Grown from deciduous Plane Trees,

Living Pergolas stand approximately 3m tall and are created by training foliage horizontally to create a living roof structure that provides shade in summer, and dappled sun in winter.
