PHOTOS OF SPREADING JUNIPERS & JUNIPER SHRUBS

An old landscaping favorite for covering slopes and steep banks are spreading junipers. These types of Junipers are known for their fast growth, adaptation to poor soil and low maintenance requirements.

These evergreen plants are usually spaced three to four feet apart (on center) with every other row being staggered for better and more even cover.

For faster fill-in of a planting area, closer spacing will require more plants but provide faster cover of a planting area.

CONTROLLING WEEDS
Weed control is extremely important during the first years after planting while low, spreading junipers are filling-in and covering the planting area. Eventually, the plants will completely cover the planting area, reducing the requirements for annual mulching and weed control.
