Topiary Balls & Topiary Domes
You can use ball shapes as single pieces to give structure, interest and form to your garden. They give an added dimension to your herbaceous borders and the benefit of an evergreen presence for winter enjoyment. You can also place them either side of your front door in planters.
Box (Buxus sempervirens) ball shapes can be as round as footballs or similar to the London Dome shape. Box balls are measured and priced by diameter and start at 20cm diameter going up to 170cm diameter.
Balls and domes are available in:
- Box (Buxus sempervirens),
- English Yew (Taxus baccata),
- Holly, Portugal Laurel (Prunus lusitanica)
- Ilex crenata Dark Green
Insider knowledge - Garden designers use Box balls to form cloud hedging, (as often seen in the RHS Chelsea Flower Show) to create different patterns of balls to create the illusion of clouds on or around the lawn.
