Planting All Different Types of Shrubs
We all long for a beautiful backyard full of lush greenery and colorful foliage, and there are many reasons to plant shrubs. Some bushes are perfect for growing as a hedge for privacy, while dwarf or low-growing shrubs are ideal as a border. Some provide interest to the yard all season long, while others are more suited as a focal point with their seasonal bursts of color. Bushes are an excellent way to landscape your yard, but they are also good for the environment. They are a habitat and food source for many critters, from birds to squirrels, and the flowering types draw pollinators such as bumblebees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and honeybees.
