Plot design

4 ways to beautifully place ornamental shrubs in the garden


Acquiring land and making a plan for the future of the house, you must think about the placement of trees and shrubs, which are always planted in the first place. This is explained not only by the size of the plants, but also by the relatively long period of growth before full blooming or fruiting. Of course, to plant all the ornamental and fruit trees in the summer cottage is impossible because of the limited territory, so you have to choose.

And when deciding which trees to plant on the plot, you need to focus on two principles:

  • growing conditions: demanding or unpretentious species,
  • the main purpose, or a place in the garden landscape (garden, hedge, single landing).

If we talk about fruit trees, then the simplest care requires apple trees (especially if you buy a seedling of local selection that is resistant to common diseases and pests). Of course, unpretentious varieties do not have high taste, but they will not bring trouble. But if you want to surprise your neighbors with something exotic, then you should think about planting a yellow plum, actinidia, walnut or peach.

Regarding ornamental trees and shrubs, the same principle applies. For example, for a hedge you can use wild grapes, honeysuckle or wilted lilac, with minimum requirements for soil and climatic conditions, and you can decorate the site with juniper, barberry or hawthorn, for which you need a little more attention.

If you decide to plant a tree in the country, then be sure to check the depth of the groundwater. Very many trees, both fruit and ornamental, die as soon as their roots reach the water. These trees include pear, which has a deep penetrating root system. At first the young sapling grows actively and pleases the host, it may even be possible to try the first fruits, but then the tree begins to wither and dry. Inexperienced gardeners complain of a disease or poor-quality planting material and again buy and plant pear seedlings.

In order for planting trees to really become durable, you need to take into account the requirements of each breed for growing conditions.

Review of fruit trees and their features

Many, having a summer cottage, wish to plant fruit trees in the garden. For good fruiting, they require a high level of illumination, feeding, watering, pruning and preventive treatments from diseases and pests.

Planting several varieties with one ripening period favorably affects the yield. To save space on the plot, it is better to choose varieties with a compact crown shape on dwarf rootstocks. Below is a brief description of the main fruit crops by the most significant parameters.

Adding an article to a new collection

Ornamental shrubs are widely used in garden landscaping. But if you decide for the first time to decorate the site with plants, then you need to know some rules. Here are the most win-win options for how to place the bushes on the site.

The basic rules for creating a beautiful garden are:

  • main color is green. Shrubs with bright and variegated leaves should be only spectacular spots on the background of natural greenery,
  • when choosing plants it is necessary take into account the illumination of the garden. First of all it concerns variegated forms, since in the shadows their coloring fades,
  • contrasts cannot be abused. Bright colors should be diluted with white and silver tones,
  • important consider frost resistance each shrub.

1. Solitser shrub planting

Spectacular specimens are so self-sufficient that they do not need a company. Shrubs with original crown, fancy leaves or lush buds deserve to be the center of attention. As a tapeworm, the cotoneaster, Thunberg barberry, spirea, hawthorn (if you regularly form its crown), skumpiya, viburnum, and Deren look good.

Scumpia Royal Purple decorative thanks to inflorescences, resembling clouds of smoke, and rich color of leaves

2. Group planting shrubs

In the simple group, plants of the same species are used, and in the mixed group, two or more. In both cases, shrubs should be well tolerated neighborhood with other "relatives". In a duet, hydrangea and rhododendron are excellent. In the mini-group, you can put keria, spirea, deicia and weigela.

To diversify the planting, next to the bushes you can settle ornamental trees. For example, in one composition, variegated eosklety, evergreen rhododendrons, golden spruce and fire red maple look good. Quite an original group of finely cherry cherries, fan maple and euonymus. The combination of Chubushnik, Deren and Japanese Euonymus also looks good.

Landscaping barberry Thunberg with different colored foliage is good in landscape design.

3. Shrubs for hedge

Hedges located around the perimeter of the garden. For this role are suitable lilac, blister, hawthorn, chubushnik.

The lilac hedge grows quickly, so it is recommended for large areas

If you want to save space in the garden, give preference to molded (trimmed) hedges made of spirea, shiny cotoneaster, barberry, snowberry, privet.

4. Mixborder of shrubs

In mixed plantings, flowering plants (weigela, silverweed) and decorative leafy (deren) shrubs are good. They are perfectly combined with herbaceous plants. But it is not necessary to combine too large specimens with powerful roots (euonymus, hazel) with plantings of flowers. It inhibits small plants.

All shrubs reach maximum ornamentation in open areas, although some are able to tolerate penumbra. But still, good lighting is preferable for them. Hawthorn, Caragana, and almonds are especially demanding of the sun, so you should not place them near tall buildings that create shadow.

What trees and shrubs to plant near the house

For example, conifers prefer sandy ground and bright places. It is better to choose not mature trees, but saplings. Then they will take root better. Their major drawback is the presence of a powerful root system. Being well developed, it can easily harm communications or the foundation of a house. Of course, this must be considered when choosing a place for landing. It should not be less than 10 meters from the building. Ideal - spruce fence or a place along the fence.

Rowan, viburnum and other fruit trees will also decorate any yard. Bright colors of their foliage in the fall, red berries in the winter - everything will be pleasing to the eye. These unpretentious trees prefer shade and moisture. Therefore, it is better to choose shaded areas for their landing. And at the same time, of course, do not forget to fertilize the soil.

But the nut will be happy wet and warm corners of the site. Better if you choose a place near the house. It is necessary to avoid windy areas on the site. It may harm the crown of the tree. The choice of location must be taken responsibly. Frequent change of residence can be detrimental to the tree. After all, its root system is quite weak.

If the climate allows, you can decorate the space around the house with fruit trees. Cherries, cherries, apricots, peaches, pomegranates, plums - they all prefer the fertilized soil. It is better that it was still wet. Dimples in the soil should not be more than 100 cm.

Of the bushes is very popular turf. It multiplies rapidly by dividing the bush. Therefore, even from a small amount in the end you get a lot of bushes. In late autumn, its leaves become scarlet. It looks very beautiful, especially against the background of the first snow. Depending on the species, it can be both a shrub and a tree.

In addition to the sod, they often plant a caliphill (tavolga, spirea). This shrub begins to bloom at the end of June and is distinguished by bright red or yellow foliage. However, this effect can be achieved only if the spirea is planted in a sunny place. Otherwise, its leaves will not acquire brightness and lose their decorative effect.

Both shrubs grow very quickly. For this reason, you need to be prepared to devote a lot of time to constant pruning of branches. The undeniable advantage is that the branches can be given a varied shape and ultimately create a beautiful fence.

What to look for when planting trees around the house

Before landscaping the site, it is advisable to get acquainted with his plan. Misunderstandings may arise with neighbors. Therefore, it is better to immediately discuss with them all the nuances of future plantings. After all, there is no guarantee that the trees will not obscure the area.

Each tree should be planted in such a way that it does not further inconvenience existing adult trees and shrubs. It is also important to know exactly where to plant trees is not worth it. For example, close to the fence. Tree roots should not touch the communications: plumbing pipes, wires, irrigation system of the site.

Between the trees themselves it is better to maintain a distance of about 2 meters. In this case, their roots or branches are not intertwined. Trees such as poplar, walnut or birch grow fairly quickly. For several years they can grow up to 20 m. The branches of trees that have been planted close to the fence can either damage themselves (on the fence) or damage the foundation or roof.

What decorative leafy trees and shrubs can be planted in the garden in the country

Here you can see the photos and names of deciduous trees and shrubs for the garden, which will decorate any area.

Winged euonymus (Euonymus alatus). Euonymus - champions in the autumn color. In the summer they are just green, but in the fall they perform with a solo part. This leafy shrub for the garden is low, suitable for trimmed or free borders, a single landing somewhere in the foreground. It grows up to two meters in height. In a sunny place the coloring is brighter. It is worth looking at other species of the genus. Euonymus is well grafted, in the first years it develops slowly. When deciding which shrubs can be planted on the plot, take into account that the euonymus does not require special care, does not have specific "family" diseases and pests.

Hydrangea paniculata (Hydrangea paniculata), or rather, its varieties, has become a star of gardens literally in the last decade. She has no equal in duration of flowering in the second half of the season. Hydrangeas adorn the garden from July to frost. All that is needed for these ornamental foliage shrubs for the garden is sufficient moisture and a cool bright place (with a little shading possible). They take root easily, they are also easily grafted, they bloom quickly and with each year they become only more beautiful. We are talking only about the hydrangea paniculata (well, and more about the tree). Large-leaved hydrangeas, which are also often found on sale, require in the climate of central Russia all kinds of “dances” on the part of the gardener. Hydrangea can be either a member of a complex composition, an accent, or a tapeworm. If you have not yet decided which shrubs can be planted on the plot, it is strongly recommended to pay attention to paniculate hydrangea.

Derain white (Cornus alba), or rather, its many varieties, as if illuminating the garden, because among them there are so many with variegated and bordered foliage. This ornamental shrub for the site is good because it is fully tolerant to any conditions, it is winter-hardy, it reproduces by layering and cuttings, and it always looks like “one hundred percent”. You can plant one bush and form it; you can use varieties as a free or trimmed hedge. It is possible even with the help of regular pruning to form a tree on the trunk.

Pedunculate oak and red oak (Quercur robur, O. rubra). The first, it would seem, everyone knows, the second one has leaves that look more like a maple and have a completely different outline of crowns. And both of these oak trees are huge mature trees. But it is precisely these that they are beautiful: longevity, stability, stability, as well as excellent winter graphics. And red oak also has a good autumn color, cast in copper.

Oaks only breed acorns (sowing). When choosing which trees to plant on the plot, keep in mind that in the garden oaks are unpretentious, but each species has its own characteristics: red oak is more tolerant to excess moisture, English oak prefers where it is dried. Oak litter has a very good effect on the soil, making it more structured.

These are, of course, the trees of the background, the long-lasting backbone of a garden that is planted once and for all. But they can be admired from afar in the winter from the window of your house.

Willow hybridSpherical Dwarf and "Weeping Gnome" (Salix x hybr.). These are two masterpieces of domestic breeding. Both names speak for themselves: the first variety grows with a low ball, the second - weeping, but not high. Both are indispensable in small gardens near water, as commensurate with it.

Like any willow, not very durable, are affected by many diseases and pests. But cuttings are extremely easy, so they can always be renewed. The plant from the cutting becomes decorative in 2-3 years, that is, very quickly. "Weeping gnome" would be good to tie in the first years of life to the support.

Kalina vulgaris "Boule de Neg" (Viburnum opulus ‘Boule de Neige’) has long been firmly established in the gardens. Bribes the simplicity of its cultivation, undemanding to the conditions, easy grafting. It is similar to lilac in its use: the shaped bush is beautiful in its graphics. If you are not going to cut it, it is more appropriate to plant a viburnum somewhere a little distance.

Kalina likes wet places, can grow near a natural reservoir. No wonder in nature viburnum is most often found along the banks of rivers and lakes.

What other trees and shrubs can be planted in a garden to decorate a plot?

False Bezbord Maple (Acer pseudosieboldianum). We have a very rare plant, despite the fact that this species is an aboriginal of our Far East. It is precisely because of this that it is very winter-hardy and perfectly endures the conditions of middle-belt gardens. Why is he needed, this maple? This tree is of medium size with incomparable graphic branches and leaf shape. He looks like Japanese maples, which we do not have winter-hardy. In the summer, this is an openwork tree that can reach a maximum of 5-7 meters in height. And in the fall, this deciduous tree for the garden is the king of leaf fall, dressed in glowing shades of red and purple. Not a single tree can be compared with it in autumn color. Suitable for small gardens, tolerates shading and spring moisture, propagates by seed. When deciding which trees to plant in the garden, keep in mind that maple grows very slowly in the first 5-7 years of life.

Magnolia (Magnolia kobus, Magnolia stellata). Yes, magnolia. It's not a mistake. It is these two species (and their varieties) that grow well in the middle lane and regularly bloom. Magnolia Kobus can blow up a 4-5 meter tree, stellata, stellate, will be 1.5-2 meters high. When these plants are in bloom, the whole district admires.

There is nothing difficult in the cultivation of these shrubs in the summer cottage: the soil is easier, and so it is not too wet.

Diabulo and Lutheus (Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Diabolo’, ‘Luteus’). Of course, the varieties of the bubble are much larger, but these two are enduring "hits." Stable, simple, cuttings, give a bright spot of the desired color in the garden. Coloring "Diabolo" gloomy, like any purple variety, "Lutheus" can be used with fewer restrictions.

What other ornamental shrubs and garden trees to plant on the summer cottage (with photos)

Choosing which ornamental trees and shrubs to plant on the site, it is recommended to pay attention to the following types of plants.

Mountain ash (Sorbus aucuparia). And the songs were put about her, and the poems were written. People's favorite. And because there is something to love: the nurse, and beauty. Flowering, of course, mountain ash especially can not boast, but fruiting overshadows many, and it can be equated to flowering in splendor, beauty and duration. If you delve into domestic varieties, they are found with purple dark berries (‘Pomegranate’ or ‘Titan’), and with ordinary rowan berries, but very tasty, without bitterness, from which compotes can be made (‘Weted’, for example). Two in one, beauty and benefit!

But there is still a weeping variety (‘Pendula’), as well as a variety with a bright autumn color (‘Dodong’).

In nature, mountain ash is an undergrowth tree or forest edge, in the garden it also develops better in a bright place, perhaps with some shade. The soil may even be with some excessive moisture.

This is an excellent ornamental deciduous tree for a medium-sized garden, a secondary plan, a background for lower plantings (only weeping is appropriate as a tapeworm).

Common lilac (Syringa vulgaris) - truly Russian folk plant. How many songs about her folded, and grows in almost every yard. It is difficult to imagine a more abundant flowering bush. And the varieties - a million, for every taste. And a lot of old Russian, which means tried and tested.

Although lilac and simple, but there are a few nuances. For example, it is transplanted in August-September, this is due to the peculiarities of rooting. It is possible and in the spring, but it will be more difficult to get accustomed and will blossom later.

Lilacs are contraindicated for excess moisture, but the soil with the presence of lime is sweet.

If you want to grow beautiful deciduous trees in the country, it is better to buy own-rooted seedlings. Then you will not have to worry about the overgrowth of the stock, you can give shoots emerging from the ground to friends. In the early years, the lilac may grow slowly, but then suddenly turn into a bush of your dreams.

During flowering lilac, of course, the queen of the garden, but you can plant her to the fore, if you are sure that you will be engaged in formation annually. An unformed bush is rather shaggy, so such free landings are more appropriate somewhere in the background.

Spirea gray "Grefshaym" (Spiraea x cinerea ‘Grefsheim‘) - favorite among spirees. Attracts by early flowering, like a waterfall of snow-white foam. It does not mean at all that it is necessary to neglect other species and varieties. They have a great many spiray for every taste and size. From a spiraea oakwood, beautiful trimmed borders, for example, are obtained.

Spirayas are good both in the sun and in partial shade, if only there is enough moisture, but it does not flood. Enough episodic corrective pruning to make the bushes look perfect. Possible and serious haircut.

Chubushnik (Philadelphus sp.), it is usually called garden jasmine, - another popular favorite. You can choose any grade you like. Most are good in bloom, and variegated and not necessary to bloom, they have such lovely foliage.

Chubushni suited standard garden conditions in partial shade. Sometimes it is worth thinning and renewing the shrub so that the flowering does not become scarcer.

Apple tree decorative (Malus sp.). Even fruit apples in bloom are beautiful. And what about varietal with large pink or red flowers? Yes, the apples on them are very small, but they, if desired, are used on jams and compotes, and some varieties do not want to pluck them, so they decorate the tree. The flowering of this garden tree on the plot can be compared with the legendary sakura. Crohn's apple trees are also good, its graphics decorate the winter garden.

Agrotechnics is standard for apple trees: without stagnant moisture, with rare liming.

  2. Vegetation with a lush crown looks great in the lowlands or on the lawns.
  3. Planted trees should be as far as possible from the direction of transmission.

  1. The first task is to plan a garden. Plot a schematic map on paper, in which place designate the desired areas for vegetation. At the same time take into account the characteristic features of the growth of any variety, because for some types of plants require the sunny side, and for others - darkened.
  2. Calculate the entire area of ​​your garden. To do this, it is necessary to determine the criteria for any intended variety of planting, namely, its size in a mature stay.
  3. Single trees are preferably planted at a distance of 4-5 meters in the same row, and if several planting lines are planned, then an indentation of at least 8 meters should be made between them. For massive plantings, follow the steps of 6-7 meters.

Ornamental garden trees are an important attribute of every summer cottage or house plot, whether they are dwarf or tall.

By planting a tree, you will not regret it because it will not only embellish your garden, but will also benefit your well-being. Properly select plants for your own site and perform the correct and current care for them.

Selection does not stand still, the necessary species are continuously improving. To experiment with unique innovations or to pick up an artificial variety that has been tested for years is a constant temptation of the gardener. Starting from your own taste preferences, you can choose a unique decoration for your favorite garden.

How beautiful to plant ornamental shrubs: the main criteria for placement

The very first thing is to choose just such a plant that will feel comfortable in the climatic conditions of your region. Choose a particular variety, it is necessary on the basis of this factor. The second nuance is its location.

If you get a sun-representative, then you need to plant it in a sunny place, where there will be a lot of light and there will not even be hints of shadow. But shade-loving, on the contrary, should be placed in shaded areas, or even generally in the shadow of buildings or large trees. This is important, because the wrong choice of location can affect not only the brightness of the foliage colors or the pomp of flowers on the bush, but also its viability.

The overall picture of the garden should also be considered when choosing a plant. In a small area, tall and lush specimens will look out of place. But, for example, flowering frost-resistant, low beautiful bushes will fit perfectly, and they will delight you with their views to the very cold.

Such representatives include dwarf varieties of Cossack juniper Tamariscifolia and Green Carpet - short, creeping along the ground, very cold-resistant. These are ideal options for creating compact alpine slides, rockeries, lawn edging, curbers.

Shrubs for hedges should also be chosen from among the stunted or medium-tall representatives with a dense crown, so that instead of an attractive fence there will not be columns of high thickets. Spike bushes, decorative flowering, columnar representatives, such as junipers, are optimally suited for such decoration. For joint planting, weigela, buddleya, spiorela, oleander will work well, they will harmoniously look with other green fellows who grow nearby. And if you want to form an arch or, for example, decorate a gazebo, fence, then in this case you should choose climbing species.

The choice is wide! For each section of any size and shape, you can find your own version. In addition to flowering plants, there are many varieties of shrubs with amazing foliage color, with an unusual crown, leaf shape. Diversity is an important aspect in this business. In most cases, the dacha landscape is divided into three zones (or tiers): the lower - vegetable beds and flower beds, the upper - fruit trees. But the bushes can take the so-called middle zone. The correct selection and combination of plants among themselves is the main goal for the summer resident who strives for beauty, comfort and harmony in his area.

Decorative leafy or flowering shrubs are not only a pleasure to contemplate, but also functional plants. Thus, by planting them near the fence, you can create a barrier from curious glances or unwanted penetration (spiny species).

With their help, it is very convenient to zone a plot, for example, to separate recreation areas and a territory for growing garden crops.

Borderychiki, paths, hedges, which have already been mentioned, the creation of protection (shadow) for more delicate shade-loving plants, the decoration of some unsightly fragments on the site - all this can be decorated, decorated or hidden with a variety of bushes and bushes. And if you decide to plant fruit representatives, then you will be additionally rewarded for your work with useful berries.

Flowering shrubs to give

Some of these representatives are also fruit, this nuance will be indicated in the description.

I will begin, perhaps, with weigela blooming. This shrub looks great during flowering and after it. Variety Nana Variegata can also be attributed to the ornamental-deciduous species, its foliage has a beautiful golden border, and Nana Purpureya has dark, red-brown leaves.

Weigela Nana Purpureya

Вид вейгелы цветущей радует взгляды розовыми цветками-колокольчиками, которые цветут волнообразно в течение сезона (обычно это весь май). Первая волна – самая обильная. Некоторые сорта могут давать цвет дважды в год, например, вейгела Миддендорфа.

Вейгела Миддендорфа ↑ к содержанию ↑

Спирея весьма неприхотлива и очень красива. Её разновидности могут цвести как весной, так и летом. If it is correct to calculate the time, then you can plant these two species in such a way that one blooms and the second only enters the flowering phase. Some varieties of spirea have beautiful foliage - Wagnutta, Pink Ice. For this reason, they can be attributed to the ornamental deciduous shrubs.

Spirey Wangutta

Spirea blooms profusely and magnificently, bending down with branches literally plastered with white flowers all the way to the ground.

A low, slow-growing Japanese spirea blooms in a lush purple-pink inflorescences. It is also attractive and is a honey plant, like its white-flowering look.

Japanese spirea

Spireas are not particularly capricious for the choice of soil, but you should pay attention to the requirements for light / shade in different varieties.

Jasmine or Chubushnik

Garden jasmine or Chubushnik - well, how can it be without him ?! Because of the enchanting aroma, almost everyone knows and loves it. Today, there are multiple varieties and hybrids - all of them are very attractive. They differ in size, shape, color and aroma of flowers.

Hedge of ornamental shrubs

The hedge is one of the most popular, interesting, and favorite gardening “structures”, in which greenery stands as a “building” material. Depending on the desired result, the hedge can be arranged in the form of a low curb or, conversely, a high green wall. You can choose any shape or length of such fencing, this is truly a creative occupation, almost always giving a great result. A green fence can hide the unsightly elements of the suburban area (for example, an old fence, fencing), highlight certain zones in the territory, or emphasize other accents of landscape design.

When choosing shrubs for this purpose, you need to consider the following parameters:

  1. Varieties of shrubs - in fact, the choice of plants to create hedges is very large. It is necessary to approach the choice not only from an aesthetic point of view, but also from a practical one. Это могут быть однородные кустарники или смешанный вариант, когда используются разные сорта и виды, гармонирующие друг с другом.
  2. Скорость роста растений – просчитайте все нюансы: как часто вы бываете на даче, сможете ли вы вовремя подстричь, подкорректировать кустики. На каком месте растёт выбранный вами кустарник (солнечное или затенённое) и как он себя будет проявлять на данной территории. This also includes the question of the shape of the future hedge, so the growth rate of the bushes is a very topical question.
  3. Shrub height - before the final choice, carefully study the potential of the bush and compare its capabilities with your wishes. The density (width) of the plantations also applies to this item, you may have to plant them in two or even three rows.
  4. Soil preparation for bushes - consider this factor, certain types of ornamental shrubs require a special composition of the soil. If in doubt, choose the most unpretentious cultivators, or consult with more experienced gardeners. In some cases, you will have to pre-pave the way for the desired variety of shrubs.

If you are a beginner, give preference to non-capricious and shade-tolerant specimens that will not require daily soil moisture. Although it is the last aspect that depends on how often you are at the cottage. Remember that the most successful mixed hedges are obtained by planting plants with the same (or similar) biological demands on moisture, light, soil quality, as well as a similar growth rate.

If we consider the coniferous shrubs for hedges, then dwarf forms of fir, thuja or juniper will suit you. Such a fence will always be green, at any time of the year.

Dwarf fir Nidiformis unpretentious, has a bright green color, does not exceed one meter in height. Small bushes are planted at a distance of 1 meter from each other, do not make any pruning until the next season, until the spruce grows. Further correction is made from the sides (two-thirds of the length of the branches) and on top (cutting the upper branches by about a third of their length).

In nature, thuja is represented not only in the form of a tree, but also in a bush. It is the bushy and dwarf varieties of thujas used to create hedges. This plant is easy to give the desired shape and height, it emits a pleasant pine aroma, is always green and looks great. TUi Smaragd or Brabant is most often used by Russians for decoration of green hedges. Thuja seedlings are seated about 50 or 70 cm apart, and decoration and cutting are done only on 2 or 3 years of plant life. Smaragd is sheared less often, Brabant - more often, all thujas are cold-resistant, they perform well when planted in clay or sandy soil. Moderate soil moisture is the best option for them. The varieties Khoseri, Danika, Teddy, Little Dorrit are also suitable for creating hedges.

Juniper is one of the favorite, popular, convenient in cutting and care of plants for decoration of green fences. He likes sunlight, is resistant to drought and cold, but should be protected from excessively wet soil (avoid bogging). It is not necessary to plant it, if you have a clay soil in the area. Bushes are seated at a distance of 60-80 cm from each other, they are cut about 2 times a year. Consider that juniper grows pretty fast.

If you want to create a hedge from a climbing plant, moreover, very quickly, pay attention to Highlander Aubert. This is one of the fastest growing shrubs, lianas, which reaches a half meter length per season. This plant is unpretentious to the soil, often needs to be adjusted (pruned), blooms with thick white inflorescences and requires a pre-installed strong support.

Hops - shrub and at the same time winding vine. Unpretentious, frost-resistant, likes wet soil, does not need frequent adjustments. The plant forms very nice mid-sized buds, which only add to the beauty of thick bright green foliage. He also needs a reliable and strong support and garter.

A luxurious hedge is made of climbing roses. Depending on your preferences, you can choose any sort with the desired shade of buds.

The Graham Thomas variety produces yellow flowers, Adelaide d’Orleans (Adelaide d’Orleans) - white buds with a yellow center, Super Dorothy blooms with numerous lush rose buds, Alaska - a white rose, delicate and at the same time solemn.

Such a hedge will not leave anyone indifferent. Be prepared for care and regular pruning, if you choose roses, they will need support too. Shrub roses can also be used in this capacity.

Clematis is an ornamental shrub and at the same time a vine. This plant loves the sun, fertile, drained and slightly alkaline soil. It turns into a thick fence in about 2 or 3 years, it looks very impressive due to the large flowers of the most varied colors, as well as thick, rich green foliage. Requires a strong support, like all vines.

The sloe (or blackthorn) reaches two meters in height, blooms with white flowers densely arranged to each other, has multiple spines. Planting the turn to create a hedge, each bush will need to be fixed, tied to a peg. So you set the right direction for the bush, support it at first, until it gains strength. The first month after planting seedlings should be watered regularly. Blackthorn grows very quickly, gives dark blue fruits - wild plums (tasty, slightly tart to taste).

Sea buckthorn is a useful and very attractive in appearance shrub, decorative fruit, I would say. Gardeners recommend planting sea buckthorn bushes in two rows. Despite the fact that trimming haircut reduces the productivity of sea buckthorn, the aesthetic side of the case only benefits from this. This frost-resistant plant can be with or without prickles. Requires a pre-installed reliable support - then everything will be beautiful and even.

Snowberry is an incredibly attractive shrub. It got its name due to the snow-white fruits, which are located on the branches in the form of grapes. Even when the plant drops all the foliage, these berries persist for a long time, sometimes even until spring. The shrub itself is excellent for the formation of hedges, grows up to one and a half / two meters in height. Often, it does not need special adjustment, as the branches themselves tend to the ground under the weight of clusters. If you regularly cut the plant, then it most likely will not bear fruit. The shrub is unpretentious, frost-resistant, blooms in the middle of summer with subtle little flowers-bells of white-green or pinkish shade. Berries are poisonous for humans, but for birds they are quite edible.

For a hedge it is best to choose from leafy, easy-to-shape plants. Such a "fence" should be tight, without the so-called spaces. Depending on your preferences, you can choose a flowering or evergreen, coniferous variant.

Fruit bushes, such as Schmidt Currant, Felt Cherry or Gooseberry, are not only suitable for creating green hedges, but also reward you with edible fruits.

When choosing a shrub, consider its features, resistance to cold, and soil requirements. It is possible that in order to maintain an attractive appearance, some representatives will need periodic feeding, fertilization. No matter how unpretentious the variety of your choice seems, maintaining a decent view of a green hedge will require you time and effort. Ennoble, cut, keep in shape will have any shrub. Poor soil should be fed with fertilizers at least once a year, and fertile soils once every 4 years.

The aforementioned flowering shrubs, such as spirea, jasmine, lilac, dog rose, can also be used to create a hedge. They can be combined with each other, planted alternately. Different varieties of barberries, planted one after another (grade after grade) will create an incredible effect. Cypress bushes (dwarf varieties) are also ideal for the formation of green "fences".

Berry Yew, which does not exceed 60 cm in height, grows in rounded bushes - it is also great for this purpose.

It all depends on your imagination and the availability of free time. Always keep in mind that tall shrubs require more space between the placement of seedlings. Do not forget about the climatic features of your region when choosing a decorative shrub.

Tips for picking and planting shrubs

Ornamental shrubs are most often planted either in the fall, until the frosts hit, or in early spring, when the buds on the trees just begin to awaken, and the snow has already melted. Moreover, the holes for spring planting should be prepared as early as autumn - make appropriate fertilizers, calculate the depth and width of the recess for a certain type of shrub. Get seedlings in safe places - special nurseries or flower shops. Before embedding into the ground, the plant can be held for several hours in water, to which a growth stimulator has been previously added.

In addition to the agrotechnical features of a single species, a simple formula should be remembered:

  1. Low and dwarf representatives are buried in the soil at a distance of about 60-80 cm from each other.
  2. The plants are medium in size - about one and a half meters from one another.
  3. Tall specimens that need space for development - at least 2 meters apart.
