Smits Nursery is innovative in the cultivation and pruning of Taxus (English yew), Carpinus (hornbeam), Prunus lusitanica (Portuguese laurel), Osmanthus, Ilex (holly) and green- and red-leaved Fagus (beech) in shapes. The English name for shapes is topiary. Almost all shapes are available, such as round ball, flat ball, cone, cube, pyramid, and beehive. Using topiaries, the style and architecture of homes and business premises can be enhanced so that even more character can be added. They are living works of art.
