This series of pictures demonstrates how John Brooker of UK has managed to use Topiary art, which is the art of trimming and growing hedges, into beautiful designs to come out with a dragon shaped green hedge. It has taken him 10 years to shape this 150-ft-long hedge into his chosen form. He said he did it since he was tired of looking at a straight hedge; it was pretty boring; then he decided “It’s going to be a dragon”. And he did it all without anybody’s help, too! This is an art that has evolved from traditional box hedges to later Japanese Zen gardens.
