Day 24: Shrub Typography


shrub signage

I'm not sure what the history of shrub signage is, but we spotted this fine example today. I did some basic research to try and discover the origins of when shrub lettering was first used in landscape design, but so far google is drawing a blank. If anybody knows more than I do, post a comment and share the pruning knowledge.

happy summer!
