Trees and shrubs for small space landscaping

Several criteria need to be considered when it comes time to choose a tree: the shape, the density of the foliage, the coloring during the seasons and of course the hardiness.

Small lots in urban areas are leading owners to turn to narrower and smaller trees and shrubs. Many horticultural varieties are suitable for small spaces while providing an inviting outdoor setting.

Here are a few to consider that will add value and originality to your garden. Note that it is possible to plant a tree right after the last frost up till the first freeze of autumn.
