Many owners of plots begin to think what they will grow in the garden only after construction of houses and household buildings. And if they do not use the services of landscape companies, sooner or later they will come to breeding or garden center with the firm intention to purchase the plant.

The choice of those or other shrubs for green of the site depends of many circumstances. The essential role is played purpose of planting decorative it will be or utilitarian: fruit (berries) or protective. However, many plants can successfully perform several functions simultaneously.
The use of various shrubs helps to create beautiful gardens in different ways. They can be placed separately and in compact groups – for example, with trimmed lawns as background, near the entrance to the house, on the curves of the track or their intersections with the aim of “fixing” of the corners. At observance of the basic rules of planting and composition of plants such compositions are usually able to create even novice gardeners. Planted along the fence, extended groups of different kinds and formed in several tiers, they will brighten its monotony. Common option is planting of shrubs in the hedges.
