Some tips for landscaping with bushes and shrubs are to select plants that can thrive in your climate zone and to select low-maintenance varieties. Use shrubs and bushes to accent flower beds, to line driveways or walkways, and to create barriers between spaces.
When selecting shrubs and bushes, choose varieties that grow well in your area because thriving plants look the most beautiful. Select a variety of dwarf and full-size shrubs to add height to a flower bed. To create a privacy hedge, plant several fast-growing shrubs. Some people choose bushes with thorns or brambles to deter unwanted visitors. Invest in a good pair of trimmers and "train" shrubs by shaping and pruning them regularly.
