Simon Cowell's Manicured Garden Bushes
Simon Cowell reportedly gets his garden hedges cut in the shape of his head.
The 52-year-old music mogul has had his lawns manicured to match the outline of his hair and skull.
At a cost of around £40,000, his west London garden and patio were-done, with a three-tiered bush making up the horticultural centrepiece.
Apparently he has even hired a full-time gardener to ensure the shape is maintained.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Simon is very particular about his £9million house and needs everything to be perfect.
''He decided to overhaul his plot and, after consulting a landscape gardener, thought it would be hilarious to have little replicas of his hair everywhere.''
The insider continued: ''He briefly considered having topiary faces, too, but figured that would be a little extreme. So he plumped for the hair-shaped bushes.
''Simon has also had his terrace re-done, because the limestone tiles were ever so slightly askew.
''The only non-manicured area is home to a partially hidden motorcycle, which he stores there.''
The source added: ''Simon has some state-of-the-art exercise machines and a huge plasma TV on which he generally watches his own shows.''
