deciduous shrubs, planting, landscape
Shrubs are an important feature of any ornamental landscape. They accent the home, provide seasonal color, serve as shelter and food for wildlife and, if properly placed, reduce home heating and cooling costs. Unfortunately, if shrubs are improperly maintained, their value in the landscape can diminish and they may become liabilities rather than assets.
