The French Village

The two homes look like twins. The topiary looks fairly carried for and that's not the norm in a warm climate. The nursery people have found a plant that they can turn in to a topiary in three years. But most house owners don't keep these fast growers trimmed properly and they don't know how to fertilize them (the plants need special fertilize). While the one in the picture is well trimmed it need magnesium and iron. Most new comers want a landscape that looks mature as soon as it is installed. The concept of maturing a landscape doesn't exist in south Florida.
