Texas is blessed with great weather for most of the year, making it one of the best places to grow all kinds of plants, especially fruit trees. The idea of using fruit trees in landscaping may seem crazy to some, but there are many reasons to plant fruit trees for your residential landscaping. If you are wanting to plant fruit trees in your landscaping, consider these ideas.
Gorgeous and Fun
Some people believe that fruit trees are just branches and fruit, but many are flowering trees that are absolutely gorgeous. Flowering fruit trees rival traditional flowers in beauty but are much larger and make a statement in your backyard. Not only are they great to look at, but it is plain fun to have a fruit tree around, and it can be a conversation piece during outdoor parties.
Fruit trees are fun and fun to look at, but they are also practical. If you are into homesteading, they should be high on your list of items to have. Having one or more fruit trees offers a free and bountiful way to feed your family during a food shortage.
Support Local Wildlife
The world is constantly changing for the benefit and, unfortunately, sometimes, to the detriment, of wildlife. Having fruit trees on your property is a great way to support local wildlife. Not only will wild animals come at night to grab a snack, but these trees benefit bees, which can use all the help they can get right now.
