If you’re pondering unique ways to spruce up your lawn this spring, you might want to look up a man named Pearl Fryar. Trimming bushes, hedges and trees with more pinache than Edward Scissorhands, Pearl has become an icon in his native Bishopville, South Carolina. Pearl’s topiary garden isn’t just the subject of his neighbors’ envy, it’s also the subject of a new HGTV special, called, appropriately enough, A Man Named Pearl.
With no formal training, Pearl has been working on the scupltures in topiary garden for several years. His main incentive is to create beautiful pieces of art for everyone to enjoy.
Would you go to the same lengths as Pearl Fryar to keep up the appearance of your yard?
