Maintaining a vibrant, healthy landscape increases your property value, keeps your neighbors happy, and gives you something beautiful to look at. Trees and shrubs are an important element of your landscape, so they need to be cared for and maintained on a regular basis along with the grass. In order to promote the health and vibrancy of all the elements of your landscape, it is important to incorporate tree and shrub care into your lawn program. Just like your grass, your trees and shrubs need proper fertilization to improve their health and longevity as well as protection from diseases, pests, and harsh weather conditions.
You can’t always tell that your plants and trees are unhealthy by looking at their foliage, so it is important to have them inspected by a qualified professional. Many times the trees and shrubs do not get all the nutrients they need to thrive from their environment. It is very effective to perform a soil test to determine its deficiencies, and then to add those elements the soil is lacking through fertilization.
