Mason and his wife Elaine. He designed the frames and planted the first few bushes while Elaine did the original trimming and trained the city gardeners to maintain them. The garden has topiaries that depict 54 human figures, three dogs, eight boats, a monkey, and a cat. Visitors can see the whole “painting” from the easternmost hill in the park.
