When you think of summer lawn care, the first thing that might come to mind is mowing the grass. And, yes, while this is certainly something you’ll need to do to maintain your lawn, you may also want to consider tree and shrub care as a vital part of keeping your lawn healthy throughout the year.
So, what exactly does tree and shrub care look like when you are considering your lawn care options? Here are a few tips:
- Planting – If you’re planting trees and shrubs, make sure you know how to plant and water correctly so that your newest additions remain healthy and receive key nutrients. A lawn care professional may be able to provide guidance on planting in the right spot for optimal growth and aesthetic.
- Maintenance – Another important aspect of tree and shrub care is trimming branches when necessary. While you may not want to top your trees and shrubs, you may want to clear away dead or dangling branches to provide plenty of room for sunlight, water, and new growth.
- Removal – Tree and shrub removal may be part of your summer lawn care regimen, especially if you have trees and shrubs that aren’t performing well or that need to be installed elsewhere in your yard. Relying on an expert to assist with this task may yield the best results.
