It’s prettier than a hedge and friendlier than a stockade fence. And it even invites birds to your garden. What is it? An evergreen screen, featuring a mosaic of hardy and easy-care plants that won’t break the bank (or your back when it comes to maintenance). Tall hemlock, pine, and spruce trees create the backdrop for a mix of mainly evergreen plants with color and texture. Two deciduous plants--burgundy Japanese barberry and variegated ajuga--add pleasing color contrast to this low-maintenance landscape.
