Here's a really unusual feature for the garden. Topiary shapes in the form of deer. Small-leaved privet has been trained around a metal framework and bound with wire to create these realistically posed lifesize deer, standing, grazing, feeding.
Ever dreamed of your own deer park? You could have one, or even a small herd...
Position against a lighter background if possible, so the wonderful shape really stands out! (And if you like that sort of thing, just imagine what they'll look like decorated with fairy lights at Christmas time!!!)
In four sizes:
- Young Stag (in two halves)
- Old Stag (in two halves)
The four legs are planted in a large terracotta-coloured plastic trough (or pair of planters in the case of the stags). You could bury the container(s) in the ground, or plant the deer directly into the ground for a long-term placement. Keep watered, and clip closely to retain the shape.
Please note each deer is unique, and may vary from the illustration.
