Topiary Template

Martha Stewart Living, April 2002

A morning of pruning by eye can turn into an afternoon of trying to balance lopsided shrubs. With a tripod template as a guide, it is easier to trim plants into even, well-proportioned cones. Tie three bamboo poles of appropriate height together at the top. The feet of the poles can be spread or pulled closer to form a broader or taller cone.
