I have several boxwoods standing about 18 inches tall that I would like to shape into cones.

What kind of tool would be appropriate and how does one go about shaping to this shape anyway?

Boxwood Cones :
You can also quickly create a boxwood cone with simple movements:

When a contour cut boxwood cone, it is important to ensure that drive overall growth and that the trunk grows straight.

1. The best thing to use to help with the cutting of bamboo are placed in a cone in the cone of boxwood. Tie the upper ends of the sticks together to create a beautiful cone.

2. Then cut boxwood cone with scissors GARDENA Accu ContourCut bush, along the lines of the bamboo poles to maintain a cone shape very well cut.

From time to time, take a step back to see how you are creating from a distance. Make sure the form is cut evenly. This is the best way to identify irregularities. Be careful when making adjustments, however, since it is easy to make mistakes when doing this.
