Implementing the planting of shrubbery in your landscaping will significantly enhance the beauty of your yard. Shrubs are smaller than trees which usually makes planting a more straightforward process. They are a woody plant with several main stems from the ground area. Depending on where you live, there is a selection of native shrubbery you will want to consider. This will include flowering shrubs and evergreen shrubs. All are beautiful and will improve your space.
Evergreen shrubs need very little maintenance and provide color all year long. Broad-leaved evergreens are considered the most popular. Some excellent varieties include junipers, arborvitae, and yews. Junipers are most useful as an attractive ground cover. The arborvitae shrub is also known as white cedar. It has very flat needles and grows upright. Yews are most often used as foundation shrubs. They will grow as ground cover across a very large area and will either grow upright or in a pyramid shape. All three varieties prefer to grow in areas where they are provided full sun.

Flowering shrubs are known for their beautiful flowers and will add color to your landscaping efforts. A few popular ones include hydrangea which provides gorgeous flowers even in the partial shade while being a plant extremely easy to care for. Lilac is another favorite with its lovely colors and sweet fragrance. It prefers to grow in full sun. Daphne is known for its intensely wonderful scent and delicate blooms. It will grow in full sun or partial shade.
You will know where to plant your shrubs when you select the type of shrub you want. If you're going to plant shrubs for ground cover you will plant them in the area you are attempting to cover. The plant will come with instructions to explain to you how many you need to include a certain amount of ground and how close together to plant them. This will work the same for those planted as foundation shrubs. Otherwise, if you are planting shrubs that you find lovely and want to enhance your yard, just find the spots in your yard that have sufficient room available to plant. Again, pay attention to the directions. Shrubs have roots and need room to grow.
Enjoy picking out your new shrubbery and starting in your beautiful new yard. Your place will no doubt be the envy of the entire neighborhood in no time at all.
