Popular Trees For Your Yard
Many of the popular trees, like evergreen trees, are used in gardens and yards to serve a purpose. They add height and dimension, giving your yard the interest to not just catch neighbor's eye, but also create a natural privacy barrier.
And using small trees gives your garden a beautiful background to make your plants stand out and give them that "wow" factor that you've been looking for.
The more popular trees we describe below can enhance an existing garden or provide the "bones" for a new area.
However, always remember to match the type of tree you choose to the climate, zone, and especially the gardening style you prefer.
Colorful Tree Combinations
Just add some yellow daffodils and blue forget-me-not flowers and this arrangement will be one of your favorite signs of spring each year. You can always add a wheelbarrow filled with spring bulbs for an interesting accent piece.
Planting Trees In Small Areas
Short on space for a beautiful tree? Have you heard of Espalier? It is horticultural technique of training trees through pruning and tying in order to create a tree that will grow flat on a set of wires on a building or between posts.
Single straight branches are interwoven to create a pattern. Any variety can be espaliered which makes them useful to grow flat against a fence or a wall. Some more popular trees to use in this way are apple, cherry and other fruit trees because the branches are long and flexible.
Other trees that are often used are fig, olive, pears, and apricot trees. Growing a tree in this manner, makes the fruit easier to pick and also easier to protect from bird damage.
So when creating your garden – remember to incorporate some trees into your garden canvas. Remember, not only are trees beautiful but they will absorb carbon dioxide and provide you with oxygen.
