    Shrubs and tree planting

    The difference between shrubs and trees is that shrubs are perennial woody plants. The are usually shorter than trees (below 8m) and they have multiple stems. The are great for creating hedges and can be trimmed in many different shapes. Most shrubs do not have a main trunk like trees, and if they do have them, they tend to be short. This occurs, since most stems branch below ground level. Shrubs come in many different structural forms and there is a big distinction in the amount of maintenance, space and sunlight shrubs require. Subshrubs are often used to divide your garden, since these reach a maximum height of two meters. This height is often not reached, due to pruning as well as environmental living conditions. Larger shrubs are mostly chosen to create a hedge, however, you can also use trees for this. Our professionals at Landscaping Derby can support you in your choices.
