Dachshund Topiary


(mossed frame topiary)

Spring is right around the corner, so gardeners.....get your dachshund topiaries ready! We recently got an email from Brad Granatier at Green Piece Wire Art:

Hello Joey and Maggie,

I recently came across your blog and loved reading some of the articles. Being Dachshund lovers, I thought I might write to let you know about our Dachshunds. Probably our best selling breed of topiary, no surprise there. We sell them as frames, mossed frames (for planting), lit or as a close wire sculpture. I am attaching a couple of images for your reference.
Anyway, I didn't want this to come off as a sales pitch, although I guess it is. Just wanted to show off our work.


No worries Brad. It's OK to be proud of such nice little pieces of art! We actually just bought your dachshund topiary last fall for this year, and are excited to try it out in the coming weeks. From the comparisons we made, Green Piece Wire Art seems to offer the best topiaries available.

We got ours from an on-line store that was having a nice sale in the fall. Internet prices seem to vary widely on these, so shop smart. Look for the Green Piece brand, and support fellow Dachshund Lovers!

We're hoping to try and do a topiary like in this video, where a complete dachshund topiary is created. If it's a complete failure, the backup plan is to buy solar string lights for it.

Either way....it's dachshund art in the garden, so you can't lose. We're sure your neighbors will love it.

If any readers would like to show off a pic of their planted dachshund topiary, feel free to send it in or post a link in the comments! We'd love to see it.

Our Mommy has one of those - she wraps it with little white mini lights - it looks so pretty at night all lit up!
