Trees are sometimes overlooked in gardens, as people opt for vibrant flowers. But trees are magnificent and can be practical too. In this suburban garden, the current fencing wasn’t providing the privacy that was wanted. So, adding a border of trees was the solution to add height and a privacy screen.
Malus sylvestris (crab apple) were planted as part of the border, the yellow-green fruit that appears in autumn is another inviting feature for birds and the flowers are great for pollinators.
