Another Far East project, with clipped-look 5 metre slim ‘flame’ cypresses set deep in the ground so that they appear to be growing straight from it. This one’s got a handy bloke in it for scale as well, shame he’s bending over!
One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge, relatively weeny cypresses at 180cm. The planter makers did a neat job making them fit the slope, too! It’s quite a tight turn to get into the car park, so we think the trees are only there to stop people clouting the wall…
The same Grosvenor balcony job as the long shot earlier, showing the smaller boxwood topiary balls mixed in below the big cypresses. Nice light again, it must be the rates they pay in SW1!
This one’s a lot further away, not far from the Botanical Gardens in Singapore. Again, a nice mix of various things from our outdoor range - and a neat way of putting a stable visual boundary in a place where things grow a foot each time you turn your back on them. Singapore.
By one of those odd coincidences, this is just along Grosvenor Crescent from the Lanesborough - but for a different client and a few years earlier, in 2011. These are the slightly wild-looking cypresses we build - they work better from a distance than tightly clipped ones.
This is the back entrance of the Lanesborough Hotel on Hyde Park Corner. Quite apart from the lovely light (lucky!), it’s a nice example of a mix of our more formal shapes, with laurel topiary balls and hedges as well as clipped cypresses.
