“Johnsons turned our front & backyards into a true oases for our three active children”
The added path and uplighting, removal of a tree stump and planting of two additional mature trees has turned our front- and backyards into true oases for our three active children. Two years since we initially hired Johnson’s, we still receive praise from friends and strangers alike for the beauty of our yard! Jamie was a true magician to execute what we wanted without our truly knowing; and everyone on his team was consistently punctual, courteous and hardworking. We couldn’t recommend Johnson’s – and Jamie- more highly.
Add Shade By Planting Trees
Trees are the perfect tool to keep your property cooler while beautifying your space. Whether you are a business owner looking to make your property more comfortable or a homeowner wanting to spend more time outside during the summer, a little extra shade is never a bad thing.
Shade can also reduce your electricity bill by limiting the use of air conditioning. Additionally, trees that provide a lot of shade will benefit certain types of flowers or perennials that need extra shade, such as touch-me-nots or Jerusalem Sage.
If you want your trees to provide shade, consider choosing tall trees with larger leaves and wide canopies, like oak trees or maple trees. The poplar, nuttall oak, and red maple are excellent choices that grow quickly and provide shade. The best fit for your landscape really depends on your needs and your property. Contact our landscape designers today to find out which trees are best for you.
Tree Planting Heightens Privacy
Trees are an excellent way to add privacy to your property. The height and durability of trees make them an excellent natural barrier against the outside world. Tree planting can shield your property from prying eyes and discourage trespassers. If they are planted next to fences or gates, they can add security while giving your property a more natural look.
When your primary goal for tree planting is privacy, choose thick evergreen trees that will block your property from curious neighbors. Pine trees like the Thuja Green Giant Tree are perfect for this. If you are restricted to buying young trees, invest in a fast-growing tree that will quickly fill out to meet your privacy needs.

Trees Enrich and Fortify Soil
Tree planting is an excellent way to reduce erosion and keep the soil healthy. Tree roots dig deep into the soil and absorb water that could undermine the soil. A thick tree canopy can also reduce the force of rain hitting the ground. The leaves spread rain out into a gentle spray.
When looking for trees to fortify your soil, search for ones with deep roots and thick canopies. Oak trees and maples are excellent choices because of their thick leaves and water-absorbing roots. You should plant trees in areas where soil is not held by grass or shrubs, such as in or next to flower beds. This allows the trees to have the greatest impact on the soil and protects the most vulnerable parts of your landscape.
The roots of some trees not only hold the soil in place, but also add nutrients that naturally fertilize surrounding plants. Leguminous trees, which are trees with pods, can fix nitrogen in the air to the soil. We only recommend the Kentucky coffee tree, which grows in our area without dropping an excessive amount of seed pods.

“It was a wonderful experience!”
“We have been extremely pleased with the designer, Joe Stark. Joe’s insight for our patio/ pond design was exactly what we wanted. Pleased with his choice in trees and shrubs as well! They have taken a blank landscape and created a beautiful retreat for us! It was a wonderful experience!”

Adding Shrubs to Your Landscape
Shrubs may seem bland compared to tree planting and flower gardens, but they are invaluable to any landscape. When placed correctly, shrubs can make a garden seem more full and vibrant. Shrubs that grow close to the ground provide a form of ground cover.
If you have patches of empty space in your flower garden, consider adding low-growing shrubs. Southern bush honeysuckle and Virginia sweetspire are excellent for filling space. Larger shrubs can provide an extra barrier between you and neighboring properties. Like trees, large shrubs are strong and durable, and their thick and compact shape is perfect for privacy and security.
Shrubs Resist Deer
One deer could ruin hours of work in just a few minutes. If deer can come to your property, be sure to invest in some well-placed deer-resistant shrubs. Shrubs with spines or stickers, like Holly or Barberry, placed near the edge of a garden can force deer to turn around before they cause any lasting damage.
Other kinds of shrubs, such as Boxwoods, repel deer with their taste or smell. If deer threaten your garden, let us know, and we can incorporate deer-resistant shrubs and bushes into your garden.
The Power of Evergreen Shrubs
When winter rolls around, the last thing you want to see is a landscape full of dormant plants and leaves. Plan your garden to maintain its aesthetic appeal even after the first frost. Evergreen shrubs are an excellent way to deflect attention from fallen leaves and add greenery and visual interest to your garden. Evergreen shrubs have the added advantage of reducing the number of leaves you have to clean up in the fall.
When designing a garden, imagine how the layout will look when the evergreen plants are the only touches of color in an otherwise brown or white landscape. If you are interested in adding shrubs to your garden, contact us today. Our landscape designers will help you find the best shrubs for your landscape.
