What You Need to Know About Tree and Shrub Pruning in Late Winter

Did you know that late winter through early spring are the two best times for pruning your deciduous trees, such as maples, oaks, elms, and crabapples?
Indeed, your arborist can see the entire tree canopy in order to make the best cuts that respects the tree’s form and removes the branches that could cause disease or property damage.

Tips to Avoid Frost Damage to Your Landscape

Our landscape management services take us to a lot of commercial properties around our area and we always get the same question from our clients when it starts to get colder, “How do I protect my plantings at home?”. whether it is a late fall chill or early spring freeze, a little frost can be deadly to many plants. Tender seedlings, newly planted flowers, shrubs and trees and even established plants in areas that are not used to cold are at risk when the temperatures dip. Fortunately, there are easy steps you can take when a cold front approaches to be sure your plants stay toasty warm.

Advantages of Mulching

Mulch installation is one of the best things you can do for your garden. This consist of placing a protective barrier (mulch) around your plants and over your bare soil. This protective barrier can be made up of a variety of decomposing organic materials, including bark or wood chips (from various tree species) and pine needles on some southern states or non-decomposing, non-organic materials such as black plastic, landscaping fabric, recycled tires, pebbles, and river rock.
