Maple is another common deciduous tree found in North America with bright red or yellow leaves in the fall. Fir trees are cone-bearing evergreens found in the northern hemisphere with needles that are short and soft. Beech trees are shade tolerant deciduous trees that have smooth gray bark and oval shaped leaves. Birch trees are a type of hardwood tree with white or silver bark and small round leaves. Cypress is an evergreen coniferous tree with dense foliage, needle like leaves, and round cones. These are just a few of the many types of trees found in nature.
When planting any type of tree, it is important to consider the size that the tree will reach when mature as well as its required maintenance needs. Trees can be beneficial in reducing air pollution and providing shade from sunlight, but they can also be a nuisance if not properly cared for. It is important to research and select the right tree for your needs before planting.
Shrubs are woody plants, usually with multiple stems and limited height. They are commonly found in gardens throughout the world and are used to create a more naturalistic look to outdoor spaces. Shrubs vary in size from small ground covers such as junipers, to large trees like oaks. These plants can provide year-round color, foliage, and even flowers, when properly maintained.
When it comes to lawn care, controlling shrubs is important in order to maintain a healthy and attractive landscape. Bermuda grass is particularly difficult to control because its wide-spreading growth can easily overtake the other plants within your garden or lawn.
Some common examples of shrubs include azaleas, rosebushes, boxwood, holly, and barberry.
If you’re looking to incorporate shrubs into your landscape, Bermuda grass control is key. Because Bermuda grass spreads via rhizomes (underground stems), it can quickly overtake a garden or lawn and smother other plants. To prevent this, make sure to keep your lawn mowed regularly and spot-treat any areas of Bermuda grass with an herbicide. By keeping your Bermuda grass under control, you can ensure that your shrubs will have plenty of room to grow and thrive!
