Keeping Shrubs Away from Your House
By: Danny Lipford
Shrubs that are too close to your house can deflect rain onto the siding and prevent moisture from drying out. This can result in rotten wood and provide a fertile environment for mold and mildew to grow. It can also result in a termite infestation. Keep bushes trimmed back at least 12” to 18” away from your house and well back from air conditioner units.
