Benefits of regularly trimming your trees.

Trees can help to make your home more beautiful while also increasing the value. Properly maintaining and trimming your trees can help to make sure that they are always looking their best. Regularly pruning and trimming your trees can help to keep the tree healthy and prevent any dangerous, falling branches.

There are many benefits of tree trimming, including:

  • Health of the tree – removing diseased or dead branches will help the overall health of the tree. Trimming branches will also help to encourage the tree to develop a stronger core, helping it withstand the elements.
  • Safety of your family and property – one of the primary reasons to regularly trimming your trees is to remove branches that can cause injury or damage if they fall.
  • Improve the aesthetics of your yard – trimming your trees can help to highlight the physical appearance of your trees while also improving the fruit or flower production of the tree.

You should trim or prune your trees during the dormant season. However, many unforeseen events can lead to you having to trim your trees at other points during the year, including if a storm causes limbs to fall or if the growth of the tree threatens your property, vehicles, or house.

Trimming your trees can be a tricky and dangerous job, which is why it is always recommended to hire a professional. Not only will a professional tree trimmer take the proper safety precautions, but they will also have a much better idea of what limbs should be trimmed and which limbs should be left alone.

Garden Trends To Watch Out For

Just like new housing trends pop up every year, new garden trends also change each year. Garden trends for 2015 are working to help your garden reflect your needs, style, and personality. Keep these garden trends in mind to help ensure that your yard looks its best all year long.

  • Clothesline – while it may seem strange to add a clothesline to your backyard, they are coming back into style. Not only will you be able to save money on your energy bill from using your dryer less, but you can also marvel at the beauty and fresh scent of white sheets blowing in the breeze.
  • Bed head gardening – working with the natural landscape of your yard will help to give your garden a purposefully un-styled look. The casual look of the landscape helps to express effortless personality, mixed with an “anything goes” attitude.
  • Thoughtful gardening – especially important in the drought stricken Southern California weather, thoughtfully and responsibly selecting the right plants will help cut down on your water usage. Also, look for disease resistant plants that require less maintenance to help combat a disease riddled garden.
  • Container gardens – more and more plants are being bred specifically for container gardening, especially when it comes to edible plants. Container gardening also allows you to grow food in less traditional settings, such as in front yards, balconies, and porches.
  • Roses – roses are still king of the garden. They are able to stand alone in their own garden or mix with other plants to create a very unique looking landscape. The fragrance of roses is also an added bonus.
