Enhance Property with Eye-Catching Shrubs: The Grounds Guys® Offer Tips for Shrubs in Residential and Commercial Landscapes

Residential and commercial property owners can spruce up their landscaping and add curb appeal with shrubs in various sizes, colors and textures.

WACO, Texas (PRWEB) October 27, 2014 - Residential and commercial owners looking for an easy way to spruce up their property while at the same time adding color, structure and even privacy should look no further than shrubs. Shrubs come in many varieties that offer broadleaf or needled foliage, colorful berries or cones, eye-catching bark or branches, or fragrant blooms that thrive in many areas and in different seasons.

The lawn experts at The Grounds Guys offer these tips on selecting shrubs to enhance residential and commercial properties’ curb appeal:

Select shrubs that are sized to fit the landscape. There are many options of shrubs ranging from dwarf size to full-height sizes. Pick the ones that best meet the landscaping needs.

Choose shrubs that match the climate, soil type, and site conditions. Check with a local nursery or the local U.S. Department of Agriculture Extension Service to find out the average lowest temperature for the region and choose shrubs based on their hardiness to your area’s climate. Also, select shrubs based on the amount of shade or sunlight on the property.

Decide on the function for the shrubs in the landscape. Consider these possible reasons for choosing shrubs:

  • Screening – Choose shrubs with dense foliage and plant them close together so they overlap slightly to provide privacy without a fence. Shrubs can even block street noise, dust and wind as well as eyesores, such as heating and cooling units, utility meters, sheds, trashcan areas, or neighboring homes or businesses.
  • Blending – Use shrubs to create a transition in landscaping from large objects, such as the home or building and trees, to low-lying elements, including the lawn and flowers. Shrubs can also soften the edges of foundations, boundaries, sidewalks, fence lines and walls.
  • Guiding – Plant shrubs in key areas of the lawn to help guide visitors to the front door or to other specific areas in the landscape. Shrubs can also help confine children or pets in areas without a fence.
