Should You Plant Trees in Your Yard?

Trees can often seem a little overwhelming when choosing plants for your garden. After all, they are much larger than the other things you will be growing and it can seem like a big commitment to make! Let's talk about some of the reasons you will definitely want to add some trees to complete your landscaping!

  • Trees are a great way to add some privacy to a garden that is overlooked. Choose trees with denser foliage for a green screen to shield you from the neighbors!
  • Did you know trees could reduce energy costs? If you plant trees on the sunniest face of your home, they will shield the property from the sun making it much cooler inside and that means less air conditioning is needed!
  • We talked about using trees to screen your garden, but they can also offer some shade. Ask us about patio trees!
  • Few things beat the joy of tasting homegrown fruit, picked right in your backyard! Why not add some fruit trees to your landscaping?

When you pay a visit to our garden center in Farragut, make sure you stop by the tree section and don't be afraid to ask some questions about the most suitable trees to tie your landscaping together. Don't forget - we can deliver!

Why Add Shrubs to Your Garden?

Everyone has probably heard of shrubs before, and you may have a general idea of what they look like, but do you know anything about them, why they are different from trees for example?

Shrubs are defined as 'a woody plant which is smaller than a tree and has several main stems arising at or near the ground.' The main difference between shrubs and trees is shrubs are much smaller with multiple stems instead of a single trunk! Shrubs are often rounded in shape and there are many different varieties including deciduous and evergreen species. Depending on the shrubs you choose, they may add flowers, berries, or colorful foliage to your garden.
