Get your greens pruned
Pruning is a great way to restore curb appeal of unruly trees. Pruning also helps keep the tree healthy and less risky to life or property. If a tree happens to block the view of your home, a slight and expert guided pruning can work for sure. Even though pruning works best if done in the dormant season, a slight pruning routine by experienced arborists to remove a few branches can be done anytime of the year.
Mulch it up
Adding mulch is essential, it not only helps give your lawn a finishing look but also keeps roots warm during the icy cold season. Rule of thumb while mulching is to not over do it. Too much of mulch can do more harm to the plant by building a layer that fails to decompose & affects root growth. Always remember to mulch lesser than 3 inches.
As a matter of fact, roots are in the process of absorbing nutrients even in the dormant season. Hence, it’s a great idea to get trees fertilized before the ground freezes. This preparation will help your trees and shrubs bloom and thrive in full force when spring arrives. This practice without a doubt will transform your landscape into a picturesque scenery.
