Designing with Topiary Spheres: Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

One can’t help but think of Dr. Seuss’s whimsical trees when they see a topiary boxwood ball. But their fun design only belies a more classic, manicured design accent that has become a popular choice for the modern designer. Here are just a few ideas on how to style our no-maintenance artificial topiary spheres for residential and commercial spaces.

Place Them in Planters

The sophisticated style of the boxwood topiary is a natural fit for modern, streamlined planter styles. And since our faux boxwood spheres require zero water, trimming, or sun to maintain their perfectly coiffed and vibrantly green appearance, they can be placed anywhere—including indoors and shady outdoor spaces that get no direct sunlight. When “planted” in a planter, they are also work as elegant privacy screens and space dividers.


Work Them into Walkways

Many people don’t realize how customizable our topiary spheres are: we can create virtually any design (hanging spheres, single- and multiple-ball trees, etc.) you desire. A chic way to direct foot traffic with style, while concealing street and other unwanted views, is by using a few topiary sphere trees. These natural-looking beauties can be configured in the design of your choice for greenery that doubles as a work of art. Line them on either side of your entryway, around a pool or private area, or around an outdoor eatery. You can place them inside or out—they are UV-protected so they won’t fade quickly.

Dazzle with Them in Displays

There are so many ways to incorporate boxwood topiary spheres into retail displays. Whatever the design, these lush green beauties won’t require any maintenance and can be placed anywhere—even in the darkest of corners where sunlight never reaches—and they will still remain lifelike and fresh-looking. Use hanging topiary spheres in varying sizes and hang them at different lengths for a display with cohesive style and visual interest.

Style Them for Special Events
