Evergreens In Border Plantings

If evergreens are used for a border planting set them in masses rather than as scattered specimens. Plant them in positions where it is desirable to have a Winter screen or where they will help plantings in front of them. If used as a background select only kinds that have green foliage. Plants, such as Judas, Golden Bell and Pyrus, together with shrubs having showy fruit, are very handsome against a background of evergreens (Fig. 99). The pyramidal type of evergreen, such as Arborvitae, Cypress and Juniper, are highly recommended for border planting, as they give an accentuated note to the scene and add to the picturesqueness more than any other type of plant.

BOUNDARY PLANTINGS   Fig. 94.    Belt plantations are always appropriate where it is necessary to create the scene within the grounds or where privacy is desired. uch plantations should always be more or less sinuous. Even on the smallest properties, the irregular curved line is more pleasing than a straight one. The combination of Spiraea Anthony Waterer and Yucca in this illustration is particularly good.   See page 101.
