Topiary with a Softer Side
by Janet
September 24, 2012

Hidden underneath my preference for natural-looking gardens, I have a weak spot for topiary. Relaxed topiary, that is.

Relaxed topiary; is that an oxymoron? Topiary is defined as "the horticultural practice of training live plants by clipping the foliage to develop and maintain clearly defined shapes." There is a category of topiary that offers the elegance of controlled shapes with a more natural feel. Here's a round up of favorites on the softer side of topiary.

Maine Home + Design - Snug Harbor Farm June 2008

Dressed in chinos, windbreaker, and wool fedora, the man trains his little camera on the scene: a handful of sheep and miniature horses mixing in a rambling paddock alongside a small, granite-lined pond full of quacking ducks. A massive weeping willow, its serpentine roots exposed at the pond's edge, droops over the menagerie of beasts.

Beyond the paddock and the low-slung, Cape-style white farmhouse and attached barn, Snug Harbor's modest three acres are teaming with activity. Five greenhouses overflow with annuals, perennials, tropicals, trees, shrubs, and topiaries. Herbs and flowers bake in cold frames. And countless birds scurry about, crisscrossing the crushed-stone and slate-slab walkways: chickens, ducks, swans, peacocks, pheasants, and on this day—as the retiree from Pennsylvania snaps away—one angry, head-bobbing turkey and a raft of fluffy brown week-old ducklings. ...

for a taste of what snug harbor farm is all about...

The Farm.
Snug Harbor Farm gets spooky around Halloween! Established in 1991 in Kennebunk Maine.

At Snug Harbor Farm the intent is to provide plant enthusiasts with healthy, well grown, interesting plant material and unique garden accessories all with an "old world" style. In following this shf grows a wide variety of unusual annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs. Open year round there is always something to find whether it's from out of one of the greenhouses or "The Shop". The topiaries at The Farm are grown in custom hand thrown terra cotta. Imported terra cotta and cast stone planters are always available. An integral part of the business also includes landscape consultation/design and installation as well as landscape gardening.

The Farm is open 7 days a week Mon-Sun 9-5 (Nov-March 9-dusk)
