Adding just a few trees or shrubs to your landscape can work wonders for the appearance of your lawn. The right additions help break up your yard and can add some color and style to space as well. Once you install these plants you will have to care for them to keep them healthy and looking good though. This can be difficult to do if you aren’t used to caring for these plants. Take the time to learn proper tree and shrub care techniques or hire experts to keep these plants in good health over time for you. Either way, you can maintain the quality of your plants with enough care as long as it’s done properly.
Add Dormant Oil to Keep Insects Away
Each off-season dormant oil should be applied to both your trees and shrubs to keep the different harmful insects off your plants. By using the right oils on your plants you’ll all but remove any issues you’re having with insects from existence. Just be careful to apply the oils liberally on each of your plants and make sure that you choose an oil that’s safe for the plants you have in your yard. This is one of the easier care steps for you to take on but requires remembering to apply the oils each year.
Feed Your Plants Properly
Each year both your trees and shrubs need nutrients to grow and to remain in good health. In order to provide them with what you need you should be applying fertilizers to your various plants. This isn’t as simple as putting the oils on though. Different fertilizers should be used on different plants based on their needs and the soil composition surrounding the plants. It’s also important not to put too much fertilizer in the soil surrounding your trees or shrubs or you can do real damage to the roots of your plant. Be careful about how you add fertilizers around your plants or leave this task up to lawn care professionals.

By removing these unproductive sections you leave more growth potential for the remaining parts of the plant. Getting pruning right is difficult but it’s something that you get better with over time.
