Evergreens bring color to the winter landscape, keeping properties looking green and lush even during cold weather after deciduous shrubs and trees have shed their leaves. There are two kinds of evergreens, broadleaf and needle leaf. Crabapple LandscapExperts suggests the first group to bring color to the winter landscape on properties we manage
Unlike more northern cities, broadleaf evergreens are plentiful in metro-Atlanta. Southern gardens look inviting despite chilly temperatures because of the many broadleaf evergreen shrubs that add year round interest with their lustrous foliage and textural forms.
