Tree & Shrub Sale – A Buyer’s Guide

Tree & Shrub Sale – A Buyer’s Guide

Every August, Old Mill hosts our annual tree & shrub sale.  For the month of August, all trees & shrubs are 30% OFF.

Here’s a quick guide to some of the most common trees & shrubs used in our Landscape Designs and purchased at the Garden Center.


Tree & Shrub Buying Guide

Trees can be broken down into 3 categories; Ornamental, Evergreen & Shade.


Ornamental Trees are usually flowering or have some special feature like shape or color. These trees are a great addition to any landscape design and work well with shade trees.  Here’s some popular ornamental trees:

Japanese Red Maple

Flowering Plum Tree

Weeping Cherry

Dogwood Tree



Evergreen Trees are great for year round color.  These trees keep their leaves all through a Long Island winter.  From a design perspective, evergreen trees work well as a privacy hedge and can be used along your property line. Common evergreens used in our designs are:


Leyland Cypress

Norway Spruce




Shade trees are used to provide relief from the sun.  These trees are best used around a pool, patio or deck and will add and interest to your landscaping. Here are a few shade trees that we like to work with:

Crape Myrtles

Fruit Trees: Cherry, Pear & Plum

Red Maple



We use shrubs in many different ways in our designs. Shrubs can be used as a privacy hedge, as specimen plants or as backdrop to flower beds.  Here are some popular shrubs:
