Niwaki Topiary and Pruning project

Niwaki was started by Jake Hobson after he fell in love with the gardens and trees of Japan back in 1977. Now a bit of an expert on Japanese landscapes and topiary, he has a range of traditional Japanese gardening tools available from Okatsune shears to Tripod Ladders.

The Niwaki trade stand was, of course, inspired by traditional Japanese garden designs and featured a Douglas Fir pavilion structure showcasing all of their quality tools. Cloud pruned Cupressus Arizonica were set amongst Silver Grey Granite Aggregate from CED, which is a popular choice for Japanese gardens, and large pieces of Slabby Sandstone paving steps led the way up the side of the stand.
