Grasses And Perennials Around Cloud Pruned Boxwood
Grubb uses boxwood throughout the estate, clipping the bushes in various styles, to add both texture and diversity to the landscape. Those shown here are cloud-clipped. Elsewhere they are ball-clipped, squared off, or pruned in other imaginative shapes. Some are in pots, others in the ground. A pair near the barn are more than ten feet tall, contoured to resemble distant trees. “They’re just so elegant,” he says.
