Shrubs are versatile garden elements which can be used to define spaces, frame garden bedding and edge pathways. These perennial woody plants are available in a very wide range, offering many sizes and styles.
Shrubs provide structure and with the various sizes available they can act as edging or provide a privacy screen. They are a key part of the garden and offer structure, soil stability and improved air quality. They are also great habitats for all kinds of wildlife and are pleasing to look at. Shrubs are commonly clipped in a round shape, but they can also be left to grow to their natural shape. They can be used in solitary planting or incorporated in a mixed border or bed.
Shrubs can provide a changing colour scheme as you choose between deciduous and evergreen varieties. Contrasting colours and textures create eye-catching interest points in the garden that are complementary as the seasons change.
