Topiary, pleached and espalier trees

Shaped and espalier trees have traditionally been used to protect buildings and people. In addition to being functional, they are now also considered to be atmospheric and stylistic elements. Thanks to their sleek shapes, they integrate perfectly into modern and classic gardens. By planting them in a repeating pattern you can create strong lines and frameworks outside. These remain visible all year round. Smits Nursery grows topiary trees in espalier, roof, and block shapes. All varieties, sizes and variations are possible.
