Evergreen trees are extremely valuable to a landscape and they retain their foliage all year long. Even in the smallest areas they can help to prevent a look of bareness in the winter months. They also make a great windbreak and shelter for small animals and birds that live in your yard.
In spring the colorful new growth on evergreen trees and evergreen shrubs is a delight. Often a lighter shade of color the new growth lends a bi-tone effect to plants.
As new growth hardens it becomes one solid color again.
In the summer and the fall the dark green conifers are a lush backdrop for bright colored annuals and perennials. There are many different varieties of evergreens. Try to select evergreens that are best suited for your yard and your landscaping theme.
