Up for Grabs
Ornamental gardens with bushes trimmed and grown into the shapes of animals. Usually lends a sense of quirkiness to what would otherwise be a rich person's stuffy garden. The possibility of the animals coming the life by magic
seems to be common. May be accompanied by a Hedge Maze
Anime & Manga

- Dungeons & Dragons has monsters called Topiary Guardians, basically animated hedges in the shapes of whatever animal you want to use (including a leopard, a warthog and a triceratops).
- The Sims had several ornamental bushes you could buy, including one shaped like a llama. In The Sims 3, you can trim your own bushes into several shapes, including animals.
- There was one episode of the old My Little Pony that involved a hedge maze with topiary animals that came to life and went after the characters when they triggered some kind of trap.
