Evergreens can be found everywhere during the holiday season, but how much do you know about these beautiful, functional trees and shrubs? And how can you tell them apart from deciduous varieties? If you already have evergreen trees and shrubs in your Loganville area yard, or you want to plant a few, keep reading to find out some interesting facts about these trees. Many evergreen species are native to Georgia, and we have some unique ways you can use these beautiful plants on your property.
Including native plants in your Loganville area yard can have a lot of benefits, including needing less overall care because they are more well-adapted to the soil and climate conditions in Georgia, a decreased likelihood of them becoming invasive in your yard and neighborhood, and their ability to foster native animal and insect species. If you want to spruce up your yard with some low-maintenance and self-sufficient evergreen species that are also native to Georgia, consider planting one or several of these varieties:
While you can use evergreen trees and shrubs for purely aesthetic purposes, there are a few other ways these trees can be useful. Evergreen species can make great natural privacy fences because their branches are usually thick towards the base of the plant, blocking the view into your backyard much like a normal wooden fence wood. Because these trees and shrubs keep their foliage year-round, you won’t have to worry about your privacy fence disappearing in the winter. Evergreen trees and shrubs can also be used as outdoor Christmas trees, or you could bring a few branches inside to use as holiday decorations, centerpieces, or all-natural air fresheners in your home.
