We carry hundreds of varieties of plants from unusual specimen material, evergreens, and shrubs, to shade and ornamental trees in a wide range of sizes. In addition, if we don't have it, we can probably get it-just ask about our "special order" process. We offer only top-quality plant material to ensure that your landscaping flourishes and provides value to your home.
Trees can be discussed in two forms, shade and ornamental.
Shade trees are effective in the landscape by providing attractive backdrops, framing, screening, and of course shade, which helps reduce energy costs and create a relaxing retreat. They also help reduce bitter winter winds, something every Minnesotan wants! We have trees available as small as potted or as large as 30-year-old field grown specimens.
Ornamental trees also create attractive backdrops or screening, but at a lower level as these trees are more compact in size. Their small stature allows them to be placed in many areas throughout the landscape enabling you to enjoy their spectacular colors, fragrances and even fruit. There are 100's of choices to choose from and the correct tree for you will be determined by your site conditions and desires. We would be happy to help you select the proper tree for your landscaping needs.
The possibilities seem endless when looking at all the varieties of shrubs available. Sizes, shapes, colors, and textures are the characteristics that vary with each variety. Shrubs provide function in the landscape through privacy screening, foundation plantings, wildlife habitat, beauty and fragrance. The best place to start is by determining the size you desire the plant to grow to. With a narrower focus, you then can choose by your color or shape preferences. It all sounds so simple, but you still have to keep in mind the light exposure for these plants. Don't let yourself feel overwhelmed by these choices, just call us and we would be happy to offer you our professional opinion.
A landscape would not be complete without the inclusion of evergreens-especially in Minnesota with our long winters! They are ideal companions with other trees and shrubs in your landscape. Evergreens offer unique colors, textures, and shapes throughout the growing season and make a statement in the winter as they are viewed against the snow. Whether it is hiding a view, blocking sound or simply adding year-round color to your environment, let us help you solve your landscape problems with the proper evergreen selection.
