Affordable Landscaping Can Be Achieved Through Evergreen Tree

Evergreen Tree Types to Plant in Your Yard

If having foliage all year is vital to you, plant an evergreen tree. Evergreens offer winter appeal since they don’t lose their leaves in the fall, but their value extends beyond that. Evergreens are said to provide the “bones” of your design since they are a constant in the landscape. Other plants, serve as a backdrop, and this could be an addition to your affordable landscaping needs and design. Deer can’t eat a lot of them. Deer that are starving will, however, consume almost anything. The phrase “deer-resistant” simply suggests that there is a good chance the deer will avoid the plant. Here are a few different kinds of evergreen trees.

Green Giant

One of the higher varieties of arborvitae, Green Giant is a hybrid that grows quickly and can reach heights of 40 to 60 feet. When a tall privacy hedge is needed, people frequently choose it for these two factors. The dense, rich, green foliage is not disorganized, but the little cones are. That’s the good news. The bad news is that true to its species, it is vulnerable to deer damage, although it is more deer-resistant than most varieties.

Serbian Spruce

The cones of the Serbian spruce are a selling point. The two-inch cones, which begin purple and eventually turn reddish-brown, provide winter appeal. The tree’s resilience to salt and drought makes it excellent for street plantings, which is another advantage. The Serbian spruce, a tree native to the Balkans, is an elegant tree that is tall but not too wide (50 feet tall and 15 feet wide), thus it can fit into most medium-sized yards.

Arizona Cypress

Native to the Southwest, this real cypress tree is a great option for warm climates with low rainfall. With a spread of 15 to 30 feet and a reasonably quick growth rate, it is appropriate for medium-sized yards. It grows to a height of 40 to 50 feet. Small, scale-like leaves that range in color from green to grayish-green to bluish-green make up the appealing foliage that is present on this plant. The tree does produce cones, much like an eastern red cedar, but they are distinct from those of pines, spruces, hemlocks, and other trees. One-inch-diameter, grayish-brown globular cones are present.
