If you are lucky enough to have access to a garden you will know just how lucky you are. It provides you with a nice private place to enjoy being outdoors as well as somewhere to entertain. Plus, of course, if you have children, it is a safe place for them to play in.
Perhaps the only drawback is the maintenance. If you enjoy gardening, having to go out there and work in it every week is a joy. But, if you loathe gardening the opposite is true. In that situation, maintaining your garden soon turns into a real drag. However, it need not be that way. Provided you choose the right plants you can usually get everything done in just a couple of hours every month. Take for example evergreens, once established; they require virtually no work to look take care of.
Where to buy evergreens
You will find a great range of Evergreen Trees from The Tree Center and other similar firms. It does not matter if you have a handkerchief-sized garden, a patio or a huge plot they will have evergreens that to suit that space. Importantly, firms like this will help you to work out which evergreen trees and shrubs are best for you. They will know if a particular variety will grow well in your acidic, free draining garden and can also advise you about pests and local regulations. This last point is important because in some towns, cities, and states certain varieties are banned.
Once you have worked out which varieties you can potentially grow you can start coming up with ways to use them. As you will see, they are really versatile plants and trees, so there are lots of potential options.
Fast-growing evergreens like Leylandi make beautiful dense hedges. Typically, once established they only have to be cut once a year. You can choose the height you want them to grow to. Once they reach that height, you just cut the top off.
You can also use narrow evergreen trees like Thujas to screen off various areas of your garden. This variety is perfect for creating a play space for the children, somewhere to dine outside that is out of the wind. A lot of people use them to screen off a section of a big garden so that they can leave it to grow wild and become a sanctuary for wildlife.
To create decorative features
Evergreen trees make fantastic focal points. Many varieties can easily be trimmed into attractive shapes. It is not hard to create a beautiful green sculpture that looks fantastic in daylight and can be up-lit at night. They are also really good for creating structures like arches or green shelters. As you can see from this webpage there really is no end to what you can do with these beautiful trees.
