Cypress Trees And Why You Should Have Them

Wednesday, 07 September 2016

We have just planted eight cypress trees in a wonderful garden in Bridge of Allan which we designed and built for our clients. The garden has been complete for a while apart from said trees as we were waiting on them arriving from Italy.  And wow, what a difference they made when they went in. Here is why we think you should consider them in your garden and a few little known facts including trees with knees!

The tall, pencil-like form of the cupressus sempervirens make them a wonderful addition to gardens. They provide a wonderful vertical accent to a garden as well as being a lovely nod to lazy days in Tuscany. They are an evergreen, coniferous tree so they will provide year round interest and gorgeous structure even in the heart of winter. Plant them in a sunny part of the garden and they are incredibly easy to look after.  Keep them well watered for the first season in their new home, give them a good mulch in Spring and they will be pretty low maintenance thereafter.
