Winter has a lot to offer when it comes to destroying your landscape. However, lucky for us, spring comes to spread sunshine and replace the damaged landscape with a greener one.
The only issue is that achieving a green and well-manicured landscape doesn’t just happen. That is why it’s essential to start taking care of your trees and landscaping right after winter fades away.
Let’s look at how you can achieve healthy green trees and landscaping this growing season.
- Start with a cleanup
As we mentioned before, your landscape often gets messy after winter. So, the first thing that should be on your spring to-do list is a good old-fashioned spring landscape cleanup, which includes removing leaves and debris, trimming tree branches, and shaping the shrubs.
The landscape cleanup should also include tree inspection and removing broken, dead, or diseased tree branches. Tree branches with issues are a potential hazard. That is why it is essential to have them inspected and removed as soon as possible.
Of importance is to have a certified professional do the tree inspection and tree removal services.
- Prepare your trees
Spring is also a season for storms and high winds. You don’t want your steady trees to be a target for lightning or any form of wind and storm damage. It’s best to start thinking of installing a lightning protection system if you don’t have one to ensure your trees remain safe.
Spring is an excellent time to consider fertilizing to improve the health of your trees, grass, and plants
- Check out for pests
During winter, pests tend to tuck away in warm places; such areas include tree trunks and branches. So, check out for any signs of pest infestation on your trees.
One of the signs of a pest infestation would be some round bumps in your tree branches. You may also see mushrooms growing at the tree bases, indicating a pathogen attack, causing tree decay.
Issues such as these are not left unattended, so call a tree specialist if you notice any problem.
