Ornamental Value
Yews are a long time used staple in the ornamental landscape and at one point became overused and over-pruned. However, don't be so quick to disregard this versatile shrub for your yard. Old can be made new again. Newer varieties are more compact, hardier, and when well placed can fit into most contemporary landscapes. Taunton Yew is resistant to winter burn and heat tolerant. As long as they have good drainage, Yews can be fairly adaptable. Contrary to the popular maintenance practice of shearing Yews it's not the only way to grow them. We also recommend maintaining a more contemporary look not to mention a longer lifespan for the plant. 
Landscape Use
Foundations, hedges, anywhere a low growing evergreen is desired
