As the year comes to an end, we hope you have all been enjoying your winter holiday season. With the new year fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to set some new year resolutions. One of your resolutions might be to improve your outdoor landscape. Landscaping isn’t easy to do, but it’s necessary because it promotes the health of various parts of your yard, such as your plants, trees, and lawn. Here are ways for you to improve your outdoor landscape so that your yard can have a strong start to the new year.
Remember to Use Mulch
Mulching is such an important part of landscaping, yet it is so often forgotten. Flowers and trees thrive when you apply mulch around them. It’s because of mulch that more water gets conserved around the base of trees. Mulch also provides your soil with extra nutrients and can help stop erosion from occurring.
Make Sure to Get Pruning Done
The key to pruning is to get it done properly. When pruning is done improperly, it can cause trees to be killed. When you leave big gashes that are too far from your tree’s branch collar, the tree actually becomes unable to heal from the wound and grow as it should.
But if you do pruning properly, it’s a whole other story. When pruning is done the right way, trees can grow healthily. It’s often something you want to do during the winter because trees are dormant during this time.
Many people believe that their trees will be okay even if they don’t have fertilizer. This isn’t always true, and it is usually only the disease-resistant varieties that don’t need fertilizer.
Without fertilizer, many trees will start to develop diseases and become riddled with pests. These pests and diseases can kill your trees, so it’s best to take preventative measures now and make sure they are well-protected with the help of a little fertilizer.
Make your outdoor landscape beautiful to start off the new year! There are so many types of trees you could plant around your yard to make it look stunning. Some options you could try include magnolias, crepe myrtles, and maples. Each type of tree will have its own unique maintenance requirements, so make sure you understand the needs of whatever trees you choose to install around your outdoor landscape.
