The experts in our shop are always available to discuss which trees and shrubs are best for you, depending on your needs! Below you will find a few of our most popular categories of trees and shrubs.
Low Maintenance Trees
Trees are the perfect addition to your backyard. Especially if you are looking to implement more shade, privacy, or attract birds and pollinators. Many trees will provide nesting sites for birds and can add some life to your backyard. We have a wide selection of trees, but if you’re looking for trees that can survive in cold weather and require a little less maintenance, we would recommend maple, poplar, arborvitaes, or spruce trees. Keep in mind that these trees can grow to be very large and require a lot of space.
Flowering Trees and Shrubs
Flowering trees and shrubs are a great option to add some color and life to your backyard during the spring and summer months. These plants will attract pollinators to your yard as well as make nesting sites for birds.

If you’re looking to add a vibrant fruit tree to your backyard, a arabapple tree may be just the tree for you. Crabapple trees produce a smaller and more bitter version of a standard apple. They are less maintenance than a citrus tree and are a great addition to a small yard. These trees require 6 hours of sunlight each day and will need to be watered regularly in extreme heat.

Low Maintenance Shrubs
Shrubs are a great way to add color and personality to your yard without taking up too much space. Available in a wide range of sizes, Shrubs can be very helpful in adding some intermediate height between trees and smaller plants in your yard. Many shrubs bloom berries and flowers during the warmer months and also provide shelter and homes for birds. If you’re looking to add low-maintenance shrubs to your landscaping, Martin’s Home & Garden recommends laurels, hydrangeas, and holly. These shrubs grow very quickly and will bloom every year. They will grow in full or partial sun and need to be watered regularly in extreme heat.
