Why does your landscape need evergreens? Here are 6 reasons:

      1. Evergreens provide structure to your landscape. In the winter, when there are no leaves on deciduous plants, evergreens maintain their foliage and color. They are the “bones” in your landscape.
      2. The provide color, texture, and interest year-round.
      3. Typically, evergreens grow large and fast. Evergreens fill in empty space very well.
      4. Evergreens provide screening and privacy. if you would like some privacy from your neighbors, a wide, tall evergreen fits the bill.
      5. Evergreens provide habitat for birds and insects.
      6. Evergreens add monetary value to your home and landscape because they improve curb appeal! Your property looks more attractive than your neighbors because you have gorgeous landscaping and they don’t!
