Sunny Side of the Street

Sunny Side of the Street

Some of our gardens get something called “full sun”. Full sun is where your garden and plants are exposed to the sun for at least six hours.

Full sun areas of your garden need a little extra water during the season. With full sun gardens, it’s best to choose plants that can take the heat.

Landscaping a sunny area in your backyard is easier than you think. We have created a quick list of plants trees that will thrive in full sun and bring color to your garden through the summer.
