Our Table Top Juniper is always a favorite evergreen for our feathered friends. To learn 4 Ways Table Top Juniper Enhances Your Landscape, click here.
We usually have a late Winter snowstorm that makes us anxious for Spring. So, when we see the Robins return for the Spring, we know it won’t be long before we are in the garden! Our Mockingbird stays in our garden all year long. He fights for territory and serenades us throughout Spring and Summer. He nests in our Burning Bush next to the garage.

For beginner gardeners, evergreens, shrubs and trees are the “bones” of your landscape! They provide structure, volume, color and interest all year long! It’s a great place to start when designing your garden or landscape.
If you like birdwatching, check your local Home Depot, Lowe’s or online Burpee Gardening for evergreens, shrubs and trees that attract birds.
