How Do You Pick a Tree for Landscaping?
When it comes to choosing the right trees for your landscape, you need to understand the different categories that trees fall into. Here is a look at the different trees that make great landscape trees.
– Evergreens: For those of you that are looking for good windbreakers, evergreens are a good choice. They come in a variety of different shades of green depending on the look you’re going for. Some of them are tall and narrow while others may be shorter and bigger around. Evergreens are great for areas that get snow in the winter. They offer a beautiful winter interest to your landscape. If you have a small space, evergreens make great trees because they can grow so narrow.
– Ornamentals: When you’re looking for that “wow” factor in your landscape, ornamental trees make a great choice. Trees like the Japanese maple or conifers are always great option to give that visual appeal to your property. Put these trees in highly visible locations.
– Flowering: These trees can also fall under the ornamental category since their flowers are so beautiful. Make sure that you’re space has the right sun or shade for your flowering tree so that you can maximize your blossoms. Keep in mind that the flowers usually only last for a few weeks, so you want to make sure you love the tree even when it isn’t flowering.
– Shade: Large deciduous trees are always welcome in a yard. However, before you plant these trees, you need to account for how large they are going to get. Don’t plant them too close to your home or too close to power lines or they can become a problem. These trees can be a great way to control the heating and cooling systems in your home as they help limit or maximize the natural light in your home.
