Many conscientious property owners pay special attention to their lawns throughout the year. They spend time mowing, watering, seeding, and fertilizing their grass in order to provide for the best environment for healthy growth and stabilization of a strong root system. Did you know that special attention also needs to be given to your trees and shrubs?
All too often, people tend to take the strength of landscaped trees and shrubs for granted. Even though they don’t usually require the same amount of attention as green grasses do, they will thrive easier and better with a tree and shrub care plan.
For many shrubs and trees that are already planted around your lawn, one thing to watch for is leaning or a “falling” appearance of the plant. If you have a shrub or tree (that isn’t too mature) that is leaning, you can use stakes around the perimeter of the plant in order to prop or pull it back to an upright position.
