Background: Background plants do just that…create the background to your landscape. They will typically range from 4 to 6+ feet in height. These larger shrubs are meant to be the foundation for the rest of your plants and establish a defined sense of space. This is acquired by placing these adjacent to a wall or structure, then placing medium and smaller shrubs in front to create a ‘layered’ or tiered affect. This height differentiation creates interest in the landscape. Background shrubs may also be used to ‘soften’ a structure by covering a portion of it up. Typically, background shrubs should be evergreen so they do not lose foliage in the cool months. Watch this video for a more in-depth look at planting design.
