As we move into spring, the idea of adding a few plants to your property maybe coming to your mind. I always enjoy putting in a few new plants in Spring. For interest, for variety, and to fill in places that just need something.
A good reason to plant some trees and bushes in your yard is to create a hedgerow. A hedgerow can be a wind block, a noise reducer, a visual block, and habitat for animals.
First, find a good location. Somewhere on your property that needs a few plants. Perhaps you already have something started but additional plants would make it more complete and full. Second, pick out the plants that you need. Get a variety. Some evergreen, some deciduous, some bushes. Third, plant the new purchases in a row and spaced so they have room to thrive. Water regularly throughout the first year. Make it your goal this spring to build a hedgerow.
