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.

4 Good Reasons for Keeping Your Landscaping Properly Maintained

Routine landscape maintenance is important for your yard, as well as for your home and family. You can learn about some reasons why it is important to have someone coming out regularly to maintain your landscaping here: 

1. Your yard will look its best

When you have your yard landscaped, you want to make sure all the elements added to it are kept in good shape. This is the only way the landscape will continue looking how it was designed to look. The trees will be trimmed to look their best, the lawn will be mowed and trimmed to look well-manicured, and weed control will prevent weeds from ruining the look of the yard. 

2. Your home value can increase 

If you don't stay on top of the landscaping, then it can negatively affect the value of your home. On the other hand, nice landscaping that adds to your home's overall look will increase its value. When the time comes that you do decide to sell your home, that landscaping will help in more ways than that raised value. It will also help to get people in the door to see your home because it will have good curb appeal that attracts more potential buyers. 

3. You may decrease the insects and other pests in the yard

Another thing that routine landscape maintenance can help with that's important is pest control. While you can't get rid of every pest on your property, you can significantly decrease the amount there is. A yard with an overgrown lawn, crowded trees, and weeds will be more attractive to certain pests. There can be an increase in ticks, fleas, crickets, and even rodents. Your crowded trees can end up becoming more of a target to tree-damaging insects, as well as be at an increased risk for tree diseases. Keeping as many pests as possible out of your yard will also decrease the risks of you ending up with more pests inside your home. 

4. You will enjoy your yard more

When you are having the landscape properly maintained, you will get to benefit by enjoying your yard much more. You will get more pleasure from sitting in your yard when it looks great than you would if everything was overgrown or dying in the yard. When the overall look and feel of the yard are nicer, it can also help to put you in a better mood. You may feel like inviting family and friends over to spend time outside for a barbecue or to have lunch when the landscape looks great.
