Learn how to make your garden a pet-friendly retreat.
Shrubs are a versatile and economical way to improve the view in any garden.
Selecting a variety of shrubs that flower at different times, produce attractive fruit, have colourful fall foliage and are evergreen (or have attractive bark) means you'll have something to enjoy year-round.
By planting shrubs of different shapes and heights, you'll add a new dimension to your garden canvas. Whether they're flanking an entrance or anchoring a perennial bed, shrubs complement structures and provide a visual focus to gardens.
There's an enormous variety of shrubs to choose from: tall and narrow or short and stout; evergreen or deciduous; needled or broad-leaved; big flowers, small flowers or no flowers; fragrant or unscented; pruned to a formal hedge or allowed to sprawl. Whether you prefer a formal look or a more free-form garden, there are shrubs to suit your style.
Attractive landscaping can increase the value of a home by thousands of dollars, and shrubs are an economical and low-maintenance choice for improving the look of your landscape.
Raised garden beds are an easy way to create interest and add dimension to your garden.
