How to use it. Mr. Bowling Ball holds its tight, spherical shape without pruning; this makes it a plausible alternative to boxwood (Buxus spp) in many situations. Its sculptural shape lets it mix well with a variety of other conifers, ornamental grasses and tall, narrow shrubs. Its shape also allows it to hold its own in vignettes featuring garden sculpture, as shown here, where the plants surround a stone birdbath. Planting notes. Mr. Bowling Ball is suited to full sun, although in warmer areas it prefers some afternoon shade. It should be planted in moist to average, well-drained soil. If you plant it in groups, leave 3 feet between the plants to allow the shape of each to develop. More:How Low Can Hedges Go? Discover Unusual Garden BordersMore Houzz guides to growing shrubs

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Designing With Conifers: Personality and Form in the GardenFeb 8, 2015

A conifer garden is a study in shapes. Some conifers are upright and conical, like Christmas trees. Others are narrow and columnar, while still others are mounding or weeping. Some even crawl across the ground. All are unique, interesting and worth exploring.Psychologists tell us that certain shapes elicit certain emotional responses. Let’s look at some prevalent conifer shapes and how you can use them to bring art, emotion and personality into your garden.

I like the stone seat; much nicer than a chair that simply wouldn't belong there
