South Carolina is the Palmetto State, so it is no surprise to learn that the palmetto palm is one of the most popular landscaping choices for South Carolina yards. This is a tree that is adaptable and beautiful, making it a practical selection for your landscaping plan. At Pinestraw Place – Landscape Supply, our team has the knowledge and skill necessary to help you make the best selections that result in an aesthetically pleasing and healthy yard that your whole family will enjoy.
The palmetto palm is in the Sabal genus. Because it does not produce a large canopy, it is does not block the sun needed by other plants near the tree and nearby grass. However, we can also incorporate them into your landscape design plan in a way that will allow them to provide ample shade if you need it. Strategic design means that palmetto palms can also cool your roof and provide relief from the summer sun.
Smaller palmetto palms can serve as a hedge or natural privacy screen, but the fronds from larger trees may cause damage if they fall on something, so it is important to think carefully about the placement of these trees. One reason these trees are so popular for the South Carolina environment is their ability to thrive in hot temperatures and direct sunlight.
There are different varieties of palmetto palms, and our experienced team can help you make a decision about the right type of palm for your unique yard.
