Benefits of Planting Shrubs in Your Landscape

Planting Shrubs in Your Landscape

Your landscape design needs to include elements that make your lawn feel like home, but it is also important for everything in your landscape to work together for a healthy environment for all of your plants and grass. Planting shrubs can really help your landscape design pull together and work together with other elements of your lawn and garden to create a beautiful escape.

Shrubs Stop Erosion

If you have an area of your lawn that is prone to erosion, adding a tropical shrub or two can help eliminate the problem. Shrubs have deep roots, and these roots can easily anchor soil in areas where frequent rain runoff threatens the grass or other garden plants. 

Help Other Plants Thrive

Tropical shrubs can help the other plants in your lawn and garden thrive. Shrubs pull a lot of water and nutrients out of the soil. Some plants can be very sensitive to rich soil with too many nutrients. When you plant a shrub near these plants, it leaves enough nutrients for these sensitive plants, while still absorbing the excess nutrients that could kill some species.

Improve Air Quality

Research studies have been done over the last several years finding that some plants actually improve air quality. Some tropical shrubs are included in the lists of plants that improve air quality inside and outside of the home. When you plant these shrubs in your yard, it can improve the quality of the air, filtering out pollutants and adding oxygen to the environment, making you and your lawn healthier.

  1. I like how you explained that shrubs can help anchor soil that would usually be washed away by erosion ad well as help sensitive plants thrive by absorbing the excess nutrients for themselves. Yesterday my mom told me that she wants to plant more plants around her house, but she doesn’t know which ones to choose. I’ll tell her that no matter what she should put in some shrubs so that she can protect her landscape from erosion and help other plants grow better.
