Do you plant shrubbery in a row so it looks like a wall of green growth?
I plant shrubs far enough apart so they can fully branch outward. But when I place a row of shrubs in front of the house I tend to place them evenly apart so they can grow out and then be trimmed later to produce a hedgerow or a green and natural partition. A natural wall of green leaves mixed in with red berries that add character to the house and give me something to do to pass the time when I get out the sheers and start cutting them so they appear uniform. Do you like to grow shrubbery until it get's up as high as it can grow just because you have the space to do so?
I plant shrubbery close together so I can have a privacy wall to block the view of traffic.
I like to plant shrubbery in separate areas of the yard so they can grow more completely without trimming them.
I like Boxwood the best.
Shrubbery is not my favorite plant because it seems to attract large bugs and birds and rodents near the home.
