Our grass had become overgrown and our yard looked terrible due to us being out of town. The guys showed up on our scheduled day and got right to work. By the time they got done, our yard looked terrific! We are so thankful to have found this wonderful company. From now on, they will work on our yard weekly. We can't wait to see how wonderful our yard will look after a few weeks of being taken care of by these guys!

Types of Shrubs

Evergreen shrubs

These are small woody bush plants that retain their leaves throughout the year. They remain green continuously, regardless of the season. Evergreen bushes offer several benefits, especially in the winter months including giving your lawn or garden an engaging look all year round; and continually providing privacy even in winter months when used as hedges. Evergreen shrubs give your landscape permanent structure and color. Examples of popular evergreens include Azalea, Japanese Skimmias, Wintercreeper (Euonymus), Japanese Laurel, Hebe, Box, and so much more.

Deciduous

These are shrubs that lose their foliage during unfavorable weather conditions like winter or fall. The leaves on these types of shrubs fall off at the start of the winter season, leaving only the skeletal stem framework standing. Although they may look bare, deciduous shrubs do not die when they lose their greenery and will bounce back to normal when the season becomes favorable again. It may seem like a no-brainer to go for an evergreen over a deciduous bush for your yard, however, deciduous bushes com with their advantages too.

Unlike evergreens that remain green all year round, deciduous shrubs offer an ever-changing look to your yard as their leaves tend to change color as the seasons change. As the weather becomes colder, the foliage turns into vibrant shades of red and orange, giving your lawn a fresh, attractive look. Examples of deciduous shrubs include Bush Honeysuckle, Smooth Hydrangea, Spirea, and Barberry.

Under these two broad types, shrubs further divided into the following categories

Low-growing Shrubs

These types of bushes do not grow into huge bushes and are perfect for small gardens. They can be quickly grown in containers too. Examples include Juniper, Spirea, Japanese Laurel, Skimmias, Honeysuckle, and so much more.

Large Shrubs

These shrubs grow into large bushes and are perfect for big to medium-sized lawns. If you are looking for something grand and attractive, these types of shrubs are the best for you. They can be shaped into a shrubbery, giving your lawn that extra factor. Large shrubs include Rhododendron, Camellia, Elaeagnus, English Holly, Laurel, and Canada Hemlock.

Whatever size your garden, large shrubs will always make a statement. You can plant a feature shrub in a small to medium-sized garden, or have several large shrubs growing together to create a ‘[shrubbery](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrubbery)’ in a more extensive garden.

Flowering Shrubs

These are shrubs that produce beautiful flowers while filling up those empty spaces along with your lawn. If you are looking for shrubs with beautiful blooms, here are some you can consider: Hydrangeas, Forsythia, Butterfly Bush (Buddleja), Viburnum and Rose of Sharon.

Sweet-Smelling Shrubs

Would you prefer to have a pleasant smell in your yard? Some shrubs are used primarily to provide a beautiful sensory detail to lawns and gardens. Some of these sweet-smelling bushes include Lilac, Lavender Buddleia, Myrtle, Daphne, etc.

Shade-Loving Shrubs

Lastly, if you have an empty shaded corner in your yard that you’ll love to fill up with a small bush, some shade-loving shrubs are perfect to use. These include Andromeda, California Sweetshrub, Camellias, and Coast Leucothoe.
