Nothing catches the eye more than plants in pristine condition! Your plants are staples on your property, and you want to keep them looking their best year-round. While they may be low-maintenance or have adapted to the Texas environment, you can help them thrive by trimming and pruning them, fertilizing them, and checking them for diseases or insect infestations and treating them if necessary. Trimming and pruning services will help enhance their aesthetics and health, while fertilization treatments supply them with the nutrients they need to thrive. Lastly, checking for and treating diseases and insect infestations prevents them from spreading to other plants and gets them back on the road to good health. With these services, you can ensure your trees and shrubs remain healthy and well-manicured additions to your property.

1. Trim & Prune Your Trees & Shrubs

Trimming and pruning your trees and shrubs is crucial to keeping them in pristine condition. However, it's important to understand the differences between them:

  • Trimming is comparable to routine maintenance and is mainly for the aesthetics of your plants. Trimming involves removing overgrowth and any unkempt, stray branches to maintain their natural shape and appearance. Clearing out unnecessary foliage and overgrown branches will also give other parts of the plant better access to sunlight. You can trim your plants to spruce them up any time they start to look unruly.
  • Pruning benefits the health of your plants by removing dead, dying, or diseased branches. Removing these branches will prevent the issue from spreading and frees up nutrients for the healthy parts. However, pruning is more invasive than trimming and can harm your plants if done incorrectly or at the right time. Make sure you only prune your plants when they need it and when they can endure it.

You should hire professionals to trim and prune your plants because they will know when and how to trim and prune them to prevent harming them.

2. Fertilize Your Plants Twice a Year

Fertilizing your plants twice a year will help keep them in pristine condition year-round! Fertilization plays an important role in caring for your plants because it supplies them with the essential nutrients that they need to thrive - nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients help your plants establish strong roots, grow healthy green foliage, and become more resilient to stressors, including diseases and insect infestations. By fertilizing your plants twice a year, you'll ensure that they always have a consistent supply of the nutrients that they need.

3. Check & Treat Your Trees & Shrubs for Diseases & Insect Infestations
