I probably wouldn't repeat the pattern. Maybe swap out sky pencil holly for the nandina. What program are you using? Pro Landscape.

you dont have the room to pull it off. as the plants age it will look bad. less is more. You are going to have a topiary that is a high maint. plant with the others. sorry , I dont see it working. dont do it.

The length is about 15 feet each section. The topiary will probably be a juniper type so won't grow or need much pruning. the nandina are easy to prune and stay 4 to 5 foot. The loropetalum are the dwarf kind that won't get more than 3 feet. (Purple pixie or purple diamond)

What else ya got. (smile)

Lots, read up on plants. Junipers that are shaped grow a lot . I have trimmed so many I can't count. I started my business trimming shrubs. If a plat is a dwarf or not it won't work. But you do it any way. It will only prove my point.

Good luck planting a dwarf lorapetlum. I have installed well over 100 that were supposed to be dwarf and either were not or lost the hybridization somehow. One property had 30 dwarfs to be planted and out of the thirty only 12 really were. They were all from the same place.
