There are many decorative woody perennials that will turn your garden into a real flower paradise during the warm months. By the time springtime’s colorful splendor of forsythia, ornamental cherry, and magnolia has passed, the magnificent flowering period for summer bloomers – hydrangea, clematis, and butterfly bush – has just begun.

Trees and shrubs that bloom in spring with robust fragrance should be put in the ground the previous fall. This allows the plant time to root before frost hits, a jump-start that’ll show in its future growth.

Where is there enough space for a tree, and how about the spot where shrubs will thrive? Avoid buying the wrong plant by mapping out your yard and bringing photos along to the nursery. That’s the way to benefit most from the experts and suss out the right sorts of greenery for your particular layout.

A living privacy screen – quick, secure, durable. Hedges shield from prying eyes and trespassers, keep the wind at bay, and provide a backdrop for garden blossoms.

It’s birdsong that makes a country breakfast on the balcony or patio truly idyllic. The best way to attract them and other animals is a stand of wild fruit trees. Bearing blossoms in springtime and fruit in summer and fall, they’re lovely to look at and also provide protection and food for native animals. The harvest is for homeowners, too – provided the robins, thrushes, finches, and starlings leave something leftover.
