Have you been enjoying the winter months? If you are a planner at heart, you may be surveying your property and wondering which landscaping tasks you could take care of now to save you the most time in the spring and summer. While you may have a long list of things to do, one of the things that you may have overlooked is tree and shrub trimming. However, there are many great reasons to consider getting it done while your trees and shrubs lie dormant.
To begin with, spring is the time when new growth appears, which means that your trees and shrubs are focusing all energy on growing new life. It also means that spring isn’t the best time to perform tree and shrub trimming. Another benefit of completing tree and shrub trimming during the late winter months is that this is a time when the trees are without their leaves, meaning that we can better see the form of the trees and shape them. Having tree and shrub trimming done before the advent of spring will also help to promote the proper growth of your trees and shrubs, thus allowing them to grow when the weather heats up. Since there are no leaves growing yet, the pruning process will also make less of a mess on your property.
As you can see, when it comes to tree and shrub trimming, timing is essential to the health of your trees and shrubs. At Englewood Lawn & Landscapes, we have the ability, equipment, and experience necessary to keep your shrubs and trees looking great all year long.
