Evergreen Trees - A List Of The Top All Year Round Trees

When it comes to fast growing trees, your best option is definitely an evergreen tree, and there are plenty of options to choose from. These types of trees are great because they are able to provide many benefits. If you are unsure as to whether evergreen trees are right for your garden, then here are a couple of the ways in which you can benefit from them.

  • Grow All Year Around - One of the best things about evergreen trees is the fact that they grow all year around. The problem with a lot of plants and bushes is the fact that they only blossom during certain times of the year, meaning that during the autumn and winter they are going to be bare. With evergreen trees, you never have to worry about this.
  • Great for Screening - If you struggle to get privacy in your garden because it backs onto a neighbours garden then you might find yourself not enjoying your space as much as you should be. There are a range of solutions that you could look into, but one of the easiest options is to plant evergreen trees for privacy from neighbours. They are fast growing and can make great screens.
  • They Look Great - More than anything, evergreen trees look fantastic in any garden, no matter what style you want to go for. There are so many different varieties, so you are able to match them to your overall design and they will look fantastic.

If you want to add some evergreen trees to your garden, then you might be wondering about the different types and whether or not they are right for you. In order to give you a better idea, here are some of the top evergreen trees for your garden.

Holly Trees

Holly trees are often associated with Christmas. However, they actually grow all year around. They are known for their red berries and spiky leaves. These bushes don't grow at a fast pace, but they do grow well and are very durable. If you want an evergreen that is going to be strong enough to withstand harsh conditions then a holly tree would definitely be a good investment.

Cedar Trees

These cone bearing trees are actually native to America, but can be found all over the United Kingdom these days. They are known for their uniquely fragranced wood. The cedar wood scent is very commonly found in both perfume and household air fresheners. Aside from the fact that they smell great, cedar trees also make the perfect evergreen tree for your garden, particularly if you have a large garden with a lot of empty space.

Laurel Trees

Laurel trees are not very well-known by name, but we have all undoubtedly used their leaves in cooking at one point or another. What's great about the laurel tree, aside from the fact that it is evergreen and grows all year around, is that you can use the bay leaves for cooking purposes. If you enjoy cooking with aromatics then this is definitely an evergreen to plant in your garden.

Cypress Trees

There are a number of varieties of cypress trees that you can plant in your garden. The good thing about these types of trees is that they grow significantly in height, but not too much in width, so you can plant plenty of them. They have a lovely mid green colour that will look great all year around.

These are just a couple of examples of some of the best evergreen trees to plant in your garden, there are so many more. If you want to create your own private space, then this is one of the best ways to do so.
