Your landscape should be an ever-changing, living part of your home. A landscape is something you will have for a lifetime; with the proper guidance and planning, your home will look great for years!
By planting trees and shrubs, we return to a more natural, less artificial environment. The natural cycles of plant growth, reproduction, and decomposition are present, both above and below ground. Shrubs are an instrumental part of every garden's ecosystem. They provide shade, improve soil stability, enhance air quality, and create habitats for all types of wildlife. Of course, shrubs and small trees are also beautiful to look at, especially when you choose varieties that add seasonal interest to your landscape.
Perennial plants are a wonderful addition to any landscape. While trees and shrubs may act as the bones of a garden, perennials provide muscle. Because they last for more than one season, they are perfect for designing a permanent garden display. Perennials can be less work because they do not require replanting every year. Perennial varieties are available to provide interest for any season of the year, including the winter. Most importantly, for many of us, there is something special about watching for the first spring shoots to peep through the soil, knowing the everchanging beauty that will follow through the coming seasons. Perennial plants provide pollen, nectar, seeds and nesting material for birds and butterflies. Perennial groundcovers can reduce soil erosion and create interest in pathways, on slopes, and along roadsides and ditches.
