Here at Agrumi, topiary animals are a popular item. We've made a huge range of animal topiary; from dogs to cats, woodland creatures to farm animals, and even Jurassic Dinosaurs! We can make any topiary animal bespoke, life size, miniature or exaggerated.
If you have something special in mind we'll be able to accommodate; after a particular breed, size, set of animals or even mythical creatures, just let us know what you're after and we'll bring it to life!
Radley is a British company that values good design and quality. Its beautiful handbags, purses and accessories have become world famous, as has its little Scottie dog logo. ‘Radley’ the dog embodies the company’s respect for British humour and eccentricity and features on all its products.
To celebrate the re-launch of their flagship store in Covent Garden, Radley asked Agrumi to make their adorable logo larger than life in a giant topiary ‘pop-up’ to feature in the Piazza.
Although the piece could have been made with living plants, Radley chose to use artificial boxwood matting. The product Agrumi uses has deep ‘foliage’ and tonal shades of green, which replicate the real thing very well.
This light, sturdy, UV fade-protected and weather-resistant material requires no on-going care and is the perfect choice for clients wanting items they can transport and use over and over again for indoor and outdoor events and exhibitions. After appearing in Covent Garden, Radley took their topiary dog on a countrywide promotional tour.
Last summer Agrumi was commissioned by ITV’s hugely successful, long-running show ‘Love Your Garden’ to create a topiary giraffe for client Joan Myers. Every week while the show is on its fantastic team of expert gardeners is challenged to build a new garden for deserving people like Joan.
Joan has devoted her life to paediatric nursing in the NHS and helping children in Africa. In 2013 she was awarded the OBE for Outstanding Services to Nursing and named as one of this country’s top 50 Inspirational Leaders in Healthcare. Her commitment to nursing meant however that her garden was sadly neglected.
When the ‘Love Your Garden’ team offered to help, Joan said she would like a beautiful, tranquil space in which to reflect, pray and entertain; requesting a topiary giraffe to remind her of Africa.
ITV came to Agrumi for the topiary and we were only too pleased to oblige.
