Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

Have A Lot Of Trees? Make Sure You Have Them Trimmed

by Addison Washington

Having a lot of trees on a property is beneficial as it can provide you with shade. This also shades your home which can help keep your home cool during the summer. One thing you must do is have the trees trimmed when it is needed. Keep reading to learn why this is important. 

Keeps the Trees Healthy

Trees take a long time to grow so the last thing you want to have happen is for a tree to have problems. Some problems will result in the tree dying and having to be cut down.  In some cases, diseases and funguses can spread to other trees which may end up killing a lot of trees in your yard. 

During trimming, dead and/or diseased branches are removed from the tree. These branches are then disposed of quickly by the tree trimming company. If the trees are thick, air and water cannot get through the thick leaves and branches. This means the tree will not get enough water. 

Prevent Damage

Dead branches may fall easily from a tree. If the tree is large the branches can also be large. This can damage your home or other structure. This could also injure someone if they are in the yard when the branch or branches fall. 

If a tree is diseased or has a dangerous fungus and is dying, the tree could fall. A tree trimming service will know if it is time to cut a tree down. If the tree is not and it falls, it may fall on your home. If you have bad storms, a dead tree is not strong enough to withstand high winds. Having a tree fall on your home can cause a lot of roof damage that is expensive to repair. The tree could also fall on other structures, such as vehicles, a garage, a shed, etc. 

Keeps Flowers and Grass Healthy

If you have trees that are too thick and water and sunlight do not get through, this also means this water and sunlight are not getting on the grass. You may have flowers planted around the tree or near the tree that also needs water and proper sunlight.

When the tree trimming service is finished trimming, the sunlight and rain can get to the flowers and the grass. This will keep these things healthy for you so you can have beautiful trees and beautiful flowers as well. 

Never try to trim trees on your own as you can injure yourself. Instead, hire a professional tree trimming service to do the trimming for you.
