Boxwood is used extensively in the landscape development of homes, gardens, and public grounds in Virginia. Since colonial times, it has been an integral part of the landscape, and many historical gardens in the state are noted for their boxwoods. Today, many people who have colonial architecture select this plant because they feel it fits this style best, but boxwood is also being used with modern or contemporary homes.
Boxwood owes its popularity not only to tradition, but also to its many landscape uses. Some of the ways it can be used are:
as plants alone or in combination with other plant material in foundation plantings for homes and public buildings;
to separate, define, enclose, or screen areas;
to provide background for other plantings;
to provide the overall pattern or framework of a formal garden;
for framing vistas;
to outline a terrace, parking area, flower border, or walk;
for planter boxes or large containers;
or as topiary pieces, in lieu of sculptures.
