These 5 Shrubs are Great Options for TriState Gardens

From Bloomin Garden Centre and Landscaping, here’s some valuable information to consider when choosing a shrub species:

“Plants used for borders and screens serve several important design functions such as blocking undesirable views, separating areas in the yard, creating vistas, and adding vertical dimension to an area, among others. In recent years, increasing attention has been devoted to the function of environmental or climate control with plant materials. Properly located border or screen plants will buffer highway noise and dust, deflect wind currents away from home, cast shade in summer for cooling, and allow sun penetration in winter for heating a structure.”
