Beginner’s Guide To Caring For Trees And Shrubs.jpg

Caring for the trees and shrubs in your yard or garden may sound easy, but there are plenty of issues homeowners face. Often there are mistakes they unknowingly make, at other times a lack of information may affect their actions which results in insufficient and inadequate care being given.

To ensure that you’re on the right path, Ornamental Landscape Maintainers Ltd. has formulated a Beginner’s Guide to caring for trees and shrubs. By following these steps, you'll have the most accurate information about caring for your trees and shrubs.

Hire a professional: With experience on their side, an arborist will help you maintain healthy trees and shrubs and offer adequate assessment and consultation. They will also educate you about the various methods and means to take care of your trees and shrubs.

Don’t hire the first arborist you come across: Before you hire a professional, visit them, ask them for a brochure of the work they do and how they take care of trees. Ask them questions and check if they provide advice and address your concerns. If you don’t feel like they can educate you and give you a reason to hire them, continue your search for a certified arborist.

Tree care starts with you: It is important to remember that proper tree care begins when you select a tree and that what you do to your tree in its first few years of life will affect its shape, strength, and even its lifespan. Consult your arborist to make sure your tree care journey gets off on the right foot so that you can keep it healthy throughout its life.

Learn the different types of care for each tree, shrub, and plant for success: Knowledge is powerful, and in the world of tree care, it is no different. Talk to professionals, rely on the trustworthy information you find online, and follow the advice.

Do not ignore information: To give your trees and shrubs the best care, you must first know your responsibilities towards the trees and most importantly, you should not overlook any information provided to you. If you are unsure about anything, always consult a certified arborist and get your questions answered.
