COMPACT PLANTS TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR LANDSCAPE

A landscape that has a beautiful design with appropriate sized plants serves as the best complement to a home, commercial building or other outdoor space. We’ve all seen the ‘monster’ plants that overwhelm and dominate creating scary landscaping. A poorly selected planting scheme can demand time and energy to keep it in control or it quickly develops into a jungle type environment. While appropriate spacing plan for mature growth is a first step for a pleasing planting we also have an increasing selection of shrub types bred to reach and maintain a smaller size. Many popular shrub and tree types as well as perennials fit into the compact category. Explore the suggestions below by clinking on the plant name to take you to more information.
