Q.

shrub to plant in front of my house

Zone Woodmere, New York 11598 | Marilynblau added on July 24, 2016 | Answered

What is the best type of shrub to plant in front of my house? Can you recommend a tall shrub to plant on either side of my garage (front of my house)? I live in Long Island (northeast) NYC suburb. Would like something evergreen, hardy, ornamental, no shedding of leaves, at least 5 feet tall and a shrub/tree that will grow in height and not width. Thanks, Marilyn
