Keeping Your Trees Healthy

After we moved into a new home, I realized that the trees out front needed some serious attention. They were overgrown, tired-looking, and a little dangerous, so I started working with professional arborists to have them trimmed. It was a lot of work, but before we knew it, things had really improved. By the time they were finished pruning the branches, the trees didn't block the view of our home and we really felt like they would bloom better in the spring. Check out this blog for more information that could help you to keep your trees happy and healthy.

Tips For Caring For Your Trees

If you have some lovely trees on your property that you would like to see stay in the best shape possible for many years to come, you will want to make sure that you are using the following tips:

Keep Them Watered

This might not be something that you have to worry about too often if your region of the country gets a sufficient amount of rain throughout the year. However, if you suddenly experience a dry spell or a drought, then you will want to manually water the tree yourself with the use of a garden hose. Do make sure that you are aiming the hose towards the base of the tree so the roots are able to absorb the most water.

Protect The Base Of The Tree From Lawnmowers And Weed Whackers

Even though you will want to keep grass from growing really high along the base of the tree, you want to avoid running a lawnmower or a weed whacker right along the tree. This is because of the potential to cause damage to the tree. Therefore, to keep your lawn looking trim, while protecting the tree, you will want to add mulch or pebbles around the base of the tree. Hold the mulch or pebbles in place with a small landscape barrier. You can then run a lawnmower or weed whacker right along the landscape barrier.

Keep The Overgrowth Trimmed

When the branches of your tree start to get out of control, you will want to trim them. This is something that you can do on your own with experience and the right tools. However, if you do not have those, you might want to consider hiring a professional tree trimming company. Just make sure that you are talking in depth about how much you want to be trimmed on your tree. This way, you won't have to worry about too much being taken from it if you wanted it to still remain full.

If you are having trouble keeping up with the care of your trees and you want to ensure that they are not going to suffer, you might consider hiring a landscaping company or contractor who will be able to do the work for you. Find the best in your area and figure out how many times you would like them to come to your home throughout the month and see what that will cost. You might find that the promise of beautiful and healthy trees will be more than worth it.
