TopiaryThey say that one of the best times to plant new trees, hedges, or shrubs in Baltimore is in the early spring. So, if you have been thinking about finding yourself a new hobby that is relaxing, beautiful, and a little obscure then this is probably what you’re looking for. Topiary is the ancient practice of sculpting foliage into fantastic shapes. This tradition has been practiced since Ancient Rome and it became very popular in medieval times. However, it began to fall out of fashion when people began to prefer more natural gardens that appeared wild, like nature itself. These days it seems like people are combining the old and new. So, it might be a good idea to introduce some sculpted gardening into your yard.

You have infinite options.

Remember that topiary is an art form. Artistic expression has an infinite scope of what can be done with it and thus, topiary is also nearly limitless. You could implement a themed set up for your yard or you could use the sculpted foliage to accentuate some of the hardscaping features you already have. If you wish to create scenes or some kind of building using foliage then you totally can. Why not grow a topiary maze or a menagerie of animals? Why not? You’d certainly have the most interesting yard in Baltimore.
