These are technically shrubs, but my neighbor shapes them so thoughtfully. I see him out in his yard sometimes with his little clippers, which I believe run on battery power. They sound like this: rrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Not too noisy. He trims all the little branches that stick out on the dinosaurs and the dragon that look like "fur" until they're smooth again. The big eye on the dragon is a nice touch.
He also has a shrub tea set. That's for next time.
