3. Plan for Harmony
Other considerations when landscaping with evergreens: Go for a mix of colors. Blend light and dark greens with blues, purples, and golds. Choose dwarf species; they grow slowly, so you can perform what little maintenance they need without climbing a ladder. Keep the colors and patterns of the path materials simple to avoid stealing focus from the textures of the evergreens.
Landscaper's tip: Mature evergreens save on weeding: Seeds can't sprout under such dense canopies.
