Tree and shrub maintenance
The need for expert tree and shrub care often goes overlooked. However, flourishing plants can have a major positive impact on the health and appearance of your property, while increasing its value. It is important to remember that foliage is not a reliable indicator of the health of your greenery, and that a single nutrient deficiency can result in the death of your plants. Approaching a professional to care for your shrubs and trees is therefore integral to keeping them healthy and minimizing your stress.
Tree and shrub care is designed to provide a landscape with the nutrients, protection, and environment it requires to thrive. Fertilization plays a large role in ensuring that all plants, from annuals to evergreens, grow forcefully and at ideal rates. Pampered plants are also more resistant to insects and disease, improving the longevity of your softscape.
Lawn maintenance ranges from mowing to fertilization and aims to keep your lawn green, vibrant, and healthy. Our weekly lawn servicing works towards keeping your lawn in pristine condition all year long and ensures that you aren’t left making last-minute calls once you notice your grass starting to die.
A healthy lawn depends on a few important factors, including adequate water, sunlight, and carbon-dioxide. In addition, lawn growth relies on the presence of a few essential elements and nutrients in the soil. Fertilizing the lawn provides it with necessary nutrients, in the right amounts, and at the right time of year, to ensure a lush and healthy turf. Rather than investing hours into research, leave it to the professionals to determine the right fertilizer and timing for your lawn.
Aeration refers to creating small perforations in the soil to allow air, water, and nutrients to reach the grass roots. It loosens any compacted soil that may be preventing the proper circulation of these elements. This is essential for a strong and deeply-rooted lawn. Lawns typically require aeration if they undergo frequent and heavy use by children and pets. In addition to tearing up your precious turf, they can also cause soil compaction.
If you haven’t torn up and replaced your lawn since moving into your home, you may be unaware of the structure of your lawn. A contractor will be able to determine if a structural issue is impairing the health of your lawn and whether it can be resolved through aeration. For example, if your lawn dries out easily, it most likely bears far too much thatch and will require aeration.
