Thuja trees are very loved by many gardeners and landscape designers. And indeed, this evergreen coniferous plant is simply irreplaceable! It looks great both on a flower bed of a small summer cottage and in huge park areas. Photos of the application of thuja in landscape design inspire you to create new beautiful compositions in your garden!

In landscape design, thuja has been used for several centuries. Pyramidal tall trees look great as tapeworms, and spherical shrubs with a dense crown are attractive both in single and group plantings.

The conifer perfectly animates winter parks and summer cottages with its greenery. By the way, there are many frost-resistant varieties of arborvitae that tolerate low temperatures and strong winds. For our cold climate, this is very important.

Thuja needles are thick and dense, which is used by gardeners, creating topiary. Decorative haircuts of trees and shrubs in the form of geometric shapes appeared a very long time ago.
