Shrubs Provide Soil Stability, Ground Cover, Shade, and More for Your Property
What's not to love about shrubs? It's a fun word to say, first of all, and you may find it interesting to know that there are a wide variety of drought-tolerant shrubs that grow well in Frisco and North Texas. Choose from abelia, Japanese barberry, boxwood, Texas sage, wax myrtle, dwarf yaupon and so much more to enhance the beauty of your yard, create a lovely living arrangement for your favorite birds, clean the air, and provide stability for your soil to prevent erosion. The shade from shrubs can even help you control your energy bills if you plant them in front of your windows to block the sun.
The best part? You can reap those benefits without cramping your style. Low-maintenance shrubs require little from you in terms of care or watering, so you're not necessarily adding chores to your list when you plant shrubs on your property. In fact, if you replace your grass with shrubs, other plants, and hardscaping features, you can decrease your water bill and get rid of your lawn mower. Win-win!
At Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape, we've got all the shrubs you're looking for and then some. We maintain a large inventory of shrubs, trees, and other plants that we know will grow in Frisco, Texas and the surrounding area—because we grow them here, too. Whether you're looking for a shrub or a completely new landscape, our team of professionals is here to help.

The Art and Science of Choosing a Healthy, Beautiful Shrub
Whether you know it or not, you're a gardener. The key is finding and planting shrubs and other plants that are equipped to thrive in North Texas. At Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape, that's the only kind we carry, and we take exquisite care of them to ensure they're healthy and happy when you take them home.
Before that, though, you have to decide which shrub you want, and there are a few factors that will play into that decision:
- Why do you want a shrub? Is it to provide shade or privacy, attract birds and other wildlife, offer soil stability and erosion control, or something else?
- How much space do you have to accommodate your shrubs? Do you want large plants or small ones?
- What is your budget and patience level for maintenance?
- Do you want vibrant flowers or simple greenery? Do you like a clean-cut, polished look to your shrubs, or would you prefer a wild-growing vibe?
- Do you want an evergreen or deciduous shrub?
That's a lot of questions, but we're here to help you answer them. Give us a call to learn more about our current inventory of shrubs or ask for directions to our garden center.
