Evergreen shrubs stay green year around and they are great for landscaping as they fill the gap where many regular flowers can't even compete. Use them for privacy as they are great to disguise unwanted eyesores and come in many colors too. They can be trimmed to just about any shape thanks to their structure which is made up of tightly spaced needles or leafs. There are different types of evergreens that also produce berries and are great for hedges.
They make great foundation plants for any garden and stay green year round which is one of their biggest benefits. You can plant them wherever you want and thanks to their nature they will grow rapidly forming a perfect way to provide shade for an area receiving too much sunshine, or act as a privacy curtain to keep the neighbors out and your family’s privacy high.
Evergreen shrubs can be used on walls, and also special wooden structures can be erected to act as the footing where these plants will naturally grow onto. They are also a perfect way to add character to any front or back yard, and can reduce the area that needs constant care and watering like expensive lawns.
They are very important and act as the green color presence inside the garden not only for privacy but for a solid and dense background that will help all the beautiful annual or biannual flowers stand out in the garden as they begin to bloom and flower.
