It’s one thing to plant a beautiful garden and another thing entirely to manage it. Every spring we see our neighbors head to their local garden supply center to purchase flowers, soil and mulch. After a couple of months, the flowers have withered and the mulch has dispersed. Gardens are living, breathing things and require maintenance just like human beings. Why spend the money on a gorgeous landscape only to watch it turn to ruin right before your eyes? Jake’s Tree Service offers comprehensive bed upkeep services. When you enlist us to maintain your garden, the only job you have is to sit back and marvel at its loveliness.
Chemical Free Weeding
Weeds are voracious plants that can quickly turn your garden from an idyllic paradise into a wasteland. They don’t need many resources to grow and their reproduction rate is faster than most plants. Not to mention, they’re extremely unattractive and break up the uniformity that you so diligently organized. Our landscapers are trained to employ chemical free weeding. That’s right; they pull up weeds by hand with the roots in tact. Chemicals are okay, but they do a lot to destroy the surrounding root system of healthy, desirable plants. To maintain a yard that is not only eye-catching but also healthy, enlist Jake’s Tree Service & Landscaping for professional, toxin free weeding.
Pruning Shrubs And Roses
When you schedule an appointment at the salon or barber shop, the hair stylist will most often give you a trim. It seems counterintuitive but trimming your ends will ensure that your hair grows healthy and uniform. The same philosophy applies to green things. When we allow them to grow amuck, your garden will appear unkempt and the overall health of the shrub will suffer. Part of maintaining your garden bed involves pruning your shrubbery. Roses should be pruned until autumn to keep new blossoms in full show. This continual maintenance of your garden will guarantee remarkable curb appeal.
Dead Plant Matter Removal
Removing dead plant matter from your garden bed is akin to shampooing your hair. Of course the shampoo removes oils from the hair shaft but the most important aspect of hair care is attention to the scalp. When you shampoo your scalp, you are removing the dead skin cells, dirt and dandruff so that the hair follicle can breathe and the hair shaft can grow healthy. This is also true for your garden. Our expert landscaper will take the time to remove and cut dead branches, expired leaves and other debris. This way sprouts can push through the soil without any hurdles. The end result is a garden you can be proud of.
Fertilizer And Mulch Applications
Fertilizer gives your garden a nice boost. Knowing when and what type of fertilizer to apply is key. Examining your garden will help us determine the best care system for our green friends. Mulch acts as a warm blanket in the winter. In the summer, it helps deflect harmful sunrays. Of course greenery requires the sun for photosynthesis but too much of a good thing can be harmful. When mulch withers away it can be viewed as an endless task. You should see mulch as a constant nutrient rich resource. As it depletes, know that your garden is absorbing all the goodness.
