PEARL FRYARS TOPIARY GARDEN, Bishopville, South Carolina

Expedition Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: October 29, 2021

This place was beautiful, whimsical, and educational with over 300 individual plants and junk art sculptures. Pearl was self-taught and originally just wanted to win a local “Yard of the Month Award”. After taking a topiary lesson at a local nursery he turned his property into a magical living sculpture garden and tourist destination. The bushes were carved in serpentine waves, the entwined trees curving up in a double helix, pyramids, spirals, animals and wilder shapes that looked like freeform doodles. One unique design spelled out Love, Peace and Goodwill.
