The Dragon Hedge: A 100 foot long dragon-shaped topiary

Watch more with these video collections:

Retired fan maker John Brooker was bored with his plain hedge in East Rudham, Norfolk, and so he decided to shape it into something more interesting. Note to self: it takes around 10 years to sculpt a hedge into a 100 foot long dragon-shaped topiary.

With extreme dedication and precision, Brooker used hedge clippers to sculpt six legs, a large head with pointy teeth, scales, and wings into what was once a simple, rectangular row of shrubbery. He spends three days every two to three weeks taming the ever-growing beast and has to climb up a pair of 6-foot-high ladders to reach the top. Photo by Damien McFadden.

In the archives, more dragons, more sculptures, and another long-term neighborhood project: The Chandelier Tree.
