Add Lush-Green Foliage to Your Yard With CSA Landscaping!

There's nothing like lush and vibrant plants to give your landscape that touch of luxury! Trees, shrubs, and other plants add a feeling of richness and fullness that really make your yard stand out, especially in suburban Buffalo, NY. So when you're looking to add a bit of glamour to your landscape, don't forget the plants! With their lush foliage and variety of colors and textures, plants can really make your yard feel like a million bucks.

Be it Green Giant or Tiny Evergreen Shrub, We've Got it All!

Homeowners install shrubs and trees for a variety of reasons, with each planting dictated by the purpose of the plant and surrounding land. Trees & shrubs are most often used for privacy screens, windbreaks, and naturalistic landscaping design. However, trees and shrubs can have slightly more functional purposes like fruit trees or front house flowering shrubs!

CSA Landscaping has a variety of shrubs and trees, both large and small, to choose from for a litany of purposes. Choose from shorter shrubs ranging from 2 - 6 feet tall, or go all out with giant evergreens or live oaks that can get up to 15 - 25 feet tall! 

What is an Evergreen Plant?

Evergreen plants are a type of tree, shrub, or plant that doesn't lose their leaves in the fall. Instead, they keep their needles or "leaves" year-round, leaving you with virtually unending dark green foliage that simply needs to be watered and pruned regularly!

This makes the evergreen tree or evergreen shrub a popular choice for landscaping! They also provide a dark green color in the snow-covered winter months, as they, fortunately, are cold-hardy plants able to survive under the right soil conditions when other plants have lost their leaves.

Evergreens are often used to create privacy screens or windbreaks, and they also help to stabilize the soil and prevent erosion. In addition, evergreens provide food and shelter for wildlife, making them an important part of the ecosystem. Whether you're looking for a low-maintenance plant for your yard or a way to add some winter interest, evergreens are always a great option!

What are Screening Plants?

Screening plants are typically evergreens that are planted in order to provide privacy or to block unsightly views. Privacy screening plants can be trees, shrubs, or a combination of both. These plants are typically fast growers and quickly fill in barren space.

When choosing screening plants, it is important to consider the mature size of the plants, as well as the level of upkeep that you are willing to do. For example, evergreen trees will provide privacy year-round, but they will also require more maintenance than evergreen shrubs, as they will need to be trimmed regularly to maintain their shape.

Screening plants can be a great way to create privacy and hide unsightly views, and with a little planning, you can find the perfect plants for your privacy needs!

Privacy Trees For Your Own Private Paradise in Buffalo, NY!

Evergreen screening plants are a great way to turn your yard into a private paradise sanctuary! These trees and shrubs are typically installed as a hedge or privacy screen around the perimeter of a property, though can be installed elsewhere if you have alternative design plans. Evergreens provide year-round privacy and are an attractive addition to any yard.

Screening plants come in a variety of styles and can be tailored to fit any landscaping style, and with evergreens coming in both tree and shrub varieties, there isn't an evergreen not fit for the job. Whether you are looking for a traditional evergreen hedge or something more modern, evergreen screening plants are a great way to add low-maintenance, fast-growing, natural privacy and style to your yard!

Some of the Best Trees For Privacy Screening:

  1. Leyland Cypress - Moderately disease-free, heat tolerant, and drought resistant, these 60/70ft tall evergreens make for a great privacy tree!
  2. Thuja Green Giant - These low-maintenance evergreens grow from 3/5ft a year and only need to be regularly watered in their developing months.
  3. Southern Magnolia - The beautiful southern magnolia grows at a moderate rate, and can be considered invasive, though only the roots damage property when seeking a water source.
  4. American Holly - Providing food and shelter for many small animals, the American Holly is considered a shrub, though grows to 15/30ft tall, making for a great "tree-like" landscape plant!
  5. Cedar - The great trees that make up the cedar genus can grow to 98/131ft tall, making for fantastic windbreaks if your property has the space.
  6. Cypress - Lastly, the cypress is another low-maintenance tree that grows from 25 to 35 inches every year given the right conditions.

These are just a few of the many trees that can be used for privacy screens, though we hope you consider mixing and matching to add some variety to your yard!

The Process of Properly Planting a Tree

When planting a tree, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. Tree species can vary in size, from small saplings to towering oaks, so it's important to choose a tree that will fit the space you have available. You'll also need to consider the soil type and drainage in your planting area, as some trees require well-drained soil while others can tolerate wetter conditions.

Once you've selected the right tree for your site, you're ready to plant! The first step is to dig a hole that is twice as wide as the tree's root ball. Next, remove the tree from its container or burlap wrap and loosen any encircling roots. Carefully place the tree in the hole, making sure that the root flare (the point where the roots meet the trunk) is level with or slightly above the soil surface.

Backfill the hole with soil while packing it gently around the roots. Water deeply to settle the soil and encourage root growth. Tree watering needs will vary depending on the species, but newly planted trees typically need to be watered once or twice a week until they become established. With proper care and maintenance, your new tree will thrive for years to come!

How to Correctly Install a Shrub

Shrubs can add a touch of beauty and privacy to your home. When properly installed, they can help to reduce noise levels and provide much-needed windbreaks. However, shrubs are not maintenance free, and they require regular care in order to stay healthy and look their best.

Here are a few tips on how to install a shrub:

1. Choose the right shrub for the location. Consider the shrub's mature size, sun and water requirements, and any special needs it may have.

2. Prepare the planting area. Remove all weeds and loosen the soil so that the shrub's roots can easily spread. A hole twice the size of the base of the plant's ball of roots.

3. Plant the shrub at the correct depth. The shrub's crown should be level with or slightly above the soil surface. After planting, the soil should be moderately packed.

4. Water regularly. Shrubs need 1-2 inches of water per week during the growing season. Be sure to water slowly and deeply to encourage deeper rooting.

5. Fertilize monthly during the growing season. A balanced fertilizer will provide the nutrients needed for optimal growth.

6. Prune annually to shape the shrub and remove any damaged or diseased branches. Always make clean, sharp cuts just above a bud or leaf node to keep the plant growing properly.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your shrub will grow to be lively!

Stay Cool with a Shrubbed Shade-Yard or Shade-Garden!

If you have ever stood in a section of your yard that is completely shaded by trees or large shrubbery, you know how different the temperature can be in that area. Shady areas like these can be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than an area that receives direct sunlight, making them a perfect place to add a shade garden!

Shade gardens are usually planted under trees or large shrubs. The best plants for a shade garden are those that thrive in low-light conditions and can tolerate being in the shadow of larger plants. Ixora, ferns, impatiens, and begonias are all good choices for a shade garden. Adding a few trees or shrubs to your yard can create a shady oasis where you can enjoy cooler temperatures and the beauty of blooming flowers.
