Tree & Shrub Care
When caring for your yard, you absolutely can’t look over the trees and shrubs. Both add plenty of value to your property:
- Trees create shade you can relax in, and they cool down your home in the summer to keep your electrical bill lower
- Shrubs and trees can act as a wind block in the winter, shielding your house to keep it warmer
- Both improve the aesthetic appeal of your yard, adding depth, height, and overall visual interest
- Some trees bear fruit, which you can enjoy in the season, or can and benefit from year-round
Instead of just hoping your trees and shrubs stay healthy and grow properly, you need to seek out professional care.
That’s where LawnLab's tree care service comes in. We have the experience and training to ensure these valuable plants stay alive and thrive for years to come.
Some people think you just water trees occasionally, and that’s it. While watering certainly is important in caring for any tree, there’s more to it. To help with water retention, applying mulch around the base of the tree is a great idea. It also fights soil compaction and prevents weeds from cropping up.
Believe it or not, trees need fertilizer. When it comes to tree fertilization, determining exactly what kind to use requires a knowledge of the tree, plus the soil composition is both a science and an art. While that’s beyond most people, our tree spraying experts can handle the task with ease.
Perhaps one of the most confusing yet important aspects of tree care is pruning:
- You need to know when the best time is to prune each tree
- You should understand the best way to prune trees for optimal health and appearance
- Pruning incorrectly can open a tree up to infection or insect infestation
You’re in good hands with LawnLab. Our expert team can ensure your trees are pruned with care. Speaking of pest and diseases, we can help prevent and cure those frustrating problems.
A healthy, well-cared-for shrub really adds something to an outdoor space. That being said, diseased or untrimmed shrubs do the exact opposite. Most property owners know little about what it takes to properly care for their shrubs.
Pruning is necessary to maintain a good shape and size for your shrubs. With flowering varieties, the right kind of pruning can even encourage more flowering.
Shrub fertilization is another necessary item. You need to work the soil around the shrubs before applying the fertilizer, plus use a fertilizer that’s optimal for the shrub and soil composition.
