Let's Talk About Shrubs!

Posted: October 12, 2017 | Mulch Masters

Whether in an urban, suburban, or even a business district setting, nothing livens up your private/commercial landscaping more than well-defined shrubbery. In spite of the differing types of properties, personal tastes of the owner, and/or property locations, Mulch Masters offers a plethora of shrubs to make your dream property become a reality.

Visual definition is one of the main reasons for using shrubs. By utilizing different shrubs suitable for your property, you can create a beautiful border outline, privacy definition, or simply use them for their aesthetic value. Additionally, improving your property definition by using shrubs as hedging is a simple way to increase the value of your property. Borders give a complete and finished look to your property much like adding a frame to any piece of valued artwork.

Some of the benefits of shrubs are:

  • To create a living privacy fence to protect from street traffic and neighbors
  • To create a noise/sound barrier
  • For protection against harsh winds and other inclement weather; and or
  • To clearly define paths/walkways on your property

However you choose to utilize shrubs, we here at Mulch Masters can help get your project on the way quickly and easily. Here are just a few of the shrubs/shrub trees that we have to help you complete your property definition goals.


    Ligustrum shrubs are very low maintenance. These plants are more fit to the warmer zones and they display amazing drought tolerance, making them a perfect choice for areas that don't see a lot of rainfall during the summer. These plants will also tolerate multiple pruning throughout the year.
    The yew pine is an upright to somewhat oval shrub or small tree. Podocarps are gymnosperms like pines, spruces and cycads. They have needlelike leaves that are flat and a lustrous dark green. Catkin-like structures on male plants produce pollen. Scaly ovules on females are small and inconspicuous. These produce small blue fruits that are attractive against the dark foliage but are mildly toxic and should not be eaten.
    Crape Myrtle is one of the most useful flowering shrubs/trees grown in Georgia. It provides abundant summer color with a minimum of maintenance. Because of these features, crape myrtles are used more often in home landscaping and as street trees in community developments. Colors range from red and pink to lavender and white.
    This compact grower is a miniature version of one of the most popular hollies. It is a prolific bearer of large, bright red berries without a pollinizer present (though heavier with a pollinizer) making this evergreen a perfect border shrub.
    This attractive pyramidal garden or patio tree with dense, upright branching and lush evergreen foliage takes to shearing well. It is an effective accent, screen or clipped hedge. The yew pine is an upright to somewhat oval shrub or small tree. Podocarps are gymnosperms like pines, spruces, and cycads. They have needlelike leaves that are flat and a lustrous dark green. This is an excellent woody foliage shrub, and may be trimmed or shaped into round or square columns or cones.
