Planning and Planting
A tree can only grow will if it’s planted well. Seeds find their own ideal conditions in nature so they can start to grow, But in your commercial landscape, you need to make sure your tree is planted in the right spot at the right depth.
Trees should be planted in rich, shallow soil so they can develop a strong and healthy root structure. This allows warmth, oxygen, and water to reach the roots. Don’t neglect to ensure that the roots of the trees you choose won’t overpower the space you have and damage walkways, driveways, or even building foundations.
Trimming and Pruning
Pruning a tree can help it grow with a better shape and improved structural integrity. It maintains the structure of the trees to help reduce the risk of broken limbs and falling branches since a properly pruned tree won’t have compromised braces structures and improper weight distributing. It’s important to do any pruning in the late fall or winter, during the dormant season. This is the time that your trees are least susceptible to any harm that may result from pruning.
By using a licensed tree service professional like Red’s Tree Services, you’ll be confident that your pruning and trimming job will be done correctly. This will help create and maintain strong tree structures that will look beautiful and prevent any safety hazards.
Mulching done right
Proper mulching can help commercial landscape a neat, weed-free look. A protective layer of mulch around planting beds and trees will create a visual reminder to keep equipment away and to facilitate a healthier growing environment. When not done correctly, mulch can damage your trees. It’s important not to put down too much mulch, because it can hold on to moisture and attract insects and fungus, which isn’t healthy for your trees. To help moderate soil temperatures and conserve moisture without injury to the tree, a simple 3-4” layer of organic mulch should be applied from just off the trunk to the outer drip line. Wood chips are highly recommended. While large piles of mulch around the trunk of the tree are aesthetically pleasing, they are a real threat to the tree’s health.
A tree’s ability to grow and thrive is dictated by its photosynthesis, which is reduced when trees get too much or too little water. Irrigation systems are a great way to monitor how much water shrubs and trees receive, but only it’s important for the irrigation system to adjust to the weather conditions and the types of plants that need to be irrigated. The root systems of trees and shrubs are much more extensive than those of turfgrass, so they need to be watered for longer periods of time but less frequently. The optimum time for watering would be right before any stress is observed.
The amount of water used in irrigation should match the prevailing weather conditions and match specific species requirements. The landscape should be designed in a way that watering zones do not include both species that require large amounts of water and those that do not perform well in wet soils. Water from both sprinklers and overhead irrigation should be directed away from direct contact with the leaves and trunk, as this leads to decline and disease.
