QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I’ve never topiaried before. I live in Ma. Can I leave this out all year? What types of plants can I grow in it? If I leave it as moss, is there any maintenance involved or anything I need to know? Thank you for your kind help.
Yes, you can leave it out year round. The frame is powder coated to protect it from rusting in the elements. You can plant most anything in it, the majority of people plant succulents as they require very little maintenance and don't grow very tall allowing the form of the topiary to still be seen. You can also grow a vine around it and keep it trimmed to the frame.
A lot of people just leave it as moss as well. There is no maintenance of the moss. If you keep it out of direct sunlight, the green dye will last longer. If you decide to plant in it, you would just water according to whatever you plant.
I would like to cover with succulents and am considering the 64” missed elephant. Would that work?
Hi, yes, succulents are one of the most popular choices for our topiaries. They are great because they require minimal maintenance and watering. I had a blogger from EveryDay Best who did a review on our topiaries and did a video demonstration of planting succulents in the heron and turtle one.

What size is good for a yard
Hi, thanks for you question. It really depends on what you are intending to do with it. If you are looking for it to be a focal point, then the larger topiaries are better. If you want it to blend in more with your yard and other decor, then I would go for a smaller one. It also depends on what you intend to do with it. If you are just leaving it as a mossed topiary then any size will work. If you want to plant in it, then you would want to take into consideration the type of plant, vine or flowers you are using and make a size decision based on that. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
