As a property owner, you might recognize that perennial shrubs and trees will grow, but these landscaping elements can eventually become messy and overgrown. We provide trimming and pruning services in the fall, but you might need one or the other based on your plants. Let’s discuss if your landscape will need trimming or pruning this fall.
Examine the Different Trees, Plants, and Shrubs
Trimming is a cosmetic service that keeps plants looking pristine. On the other hand, pruning is done for your plants’ health. When done correctly, pruning will promote healthy growth. Depending on the plant types on your property, you might need trimming or pruning in the fall. And sometimes both services if your landscape is complex.
To determine whether your land needs trimming or pruning this fall, observe the dominant plant types: trees, simple shrubs, and large shrubs. Pruning should be your priority if you have many trees and large shrubs. Or, if your landscape is primarily simple, smaller shrubs, choose a trimming service.
Pruning Promotes Healthy Trees and Shrubs
Whether your landscape needs trimming or pruning this fall, they are sometimes used interchangeably. As we mentioned, pruning is about plant health, but trimming is what keeps your landscape looking great! The pruning process involves cutting away overgrown and dead branches that disturb healthy growth.
In addition, dead branches are problematic because they can fall and are prime locations for disease and insects to infect the shrub or tree. Proper pruning ensures that trees have solid trunks and strong limbs while also encouraging crown growth.
Keep Your Plants in Shape by Trimming
Trimming occurs after the growing season when plants become dormant and assist in overgrowth control. Sometimes, you want plants to develop into space, but trimming will still encourage growth while keeping the shape you desire.
