Cherry Blossom Care: Understanding The Basics

When I bought a house with a cherry blossom tree in the front yard, I couldn't wait for that first blooming season to see the tree fill out. I knew that the tree needed care, but I wasn't sure how I was supposed to treat it. I called my local tree service and had them show me what it needed to keep it strong. I took all of the information they shared with me and everything else I've learned and created this site. I hope that the information here helps you take care of your blossoming trees so that you can enjoy their beauty every season.

3 Important Reasons To Hire A Lawn Care Company

Are you tired of having a lawn that is much less than ideal? Does it seem like you've done everything but your grass is still green or patchy? Although growing a lawn isn't the most difficult thing in the world, there are still times when it seems like everything just makes the grass worse. But it doesn't have to be this way. With a little professional help, you can have a lawn that will be the envy of your neighbors. Some things that a professional lawn care company can do for you include:

Planting the correct grass: If you're like many people, you probably think that all grass is pretty much the same. This is not completely true. Some grasses are annuals and need to be reseeded every year, others are perennial and will live for many years. Some grasses are meant to be grown in cool weather while others are more tolerant of summer and the accompanying higher temperatures and lack of water. The professionals at your local lawn care company will identify the type of grass in your yard right now and will help you to decide whether to keep that grass or to plant a different variety that may provide better results.

Selecting another ground cover: Sometimes, conditions simply aren't right for growing an actual lawn. Perhaps there is too much shade for grass to grow properly. Perhaps the soil lacks nutrients or is too full of clay or sand for a lawn to take hold. In these instances, professionals from your local lawn care company can help you select another ground cover that is appropriate for your needs. It may not have exactly the same look as a grass lawn, but it won't have the patchy or sparse look that would accompany grass growing in the same area.

Dethatching and aeration: Regardless of what type of grass you're growing, the tightly-spaced individual plants will eventually start to crowd each other out. Dead roots will build up in the soil and make it more difficult for the living plants to grow. This layer of roots is called thatch. Dethatching is a process where these roots are sliced, to hasten decomposition, and a portion of them are removed from the soil. Aeration may be performed more frequently and pokes holes in the soil and the thatch, allowing air and water to penetrate more deeply. While these things can be done by you, the work is difficult and it may be easier for you to hire a lawn care company, like Ross Tree Company, to do them for you.
