Design for Easy Maintenance
By Keith Rudolph firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a good time of the year to remember where the piles of snow were this last winter. Why? To choose the right plants for that area this spring that would not have been affected by that snow pile. Heavy snow and/ or piles of salt will demolish the wrong plant. Consider hardy shrubs and perennials that die back to the ground or can be pruned low to the ground. Make sure your plant choices are tolerant to salt and heavy urban conditions.
Good perennial choices include Hosta, Daylily, Sedum and other perennials. When it comes to shrubs, Annabelle Hydrangea and smaller growing varieties of Spirea are great shrub choices, as they can be pruned down to 6” above the ground if damaged. Save yourself some headaches and think ahead. You will be glad you did. Need additional ideas? Take a look at our plant catalog pages or contact you Local Design Pro today!
