Tree Removal

Tips from Your Professional Landscaping and Tree Service Company

As a homeowner, you may have a variety of reasons to get one or more trees removed from your property. Whether the trees are dried and damaged, or posing a safety hazard, you can rely on the skilled and experienced professionals from your local tree service company to carry out safe removal of the tree. Once the specialists have disposed of the tree, usually they will also remove the stump, and clean up the area for you. 

However, if you haven’t called for professional help, it is possible that you are left with an unsightly, woodchips-filled hole at the spot that housed the tree. Here are a few things that you could do to manage the site post a stump grinding.

5 Steps to Transform the Tree Stump Site

There are multiple ways to transform the ugly area that is left behind after stump grinding: 

  1. Clear the Debris: Rake away the twigs, dried branches, and woodchips from the tree stump hole. Use a saw or clippers to get rid of any visible tree roots.
  2. Level the Ground: Add as many bags of soil as it takes to fill up the hole and level it with the rest of the yard. Loosen the soil with a rake, but leave a few extra inches as it will settle down once you start watering the area.
  3. Plan the Landscape for the Spot: Create a green, grassy patch that merges with the rest of your yard or replant a young, healthy tree. You may want to design a new landscape with shrubs and flowering plants. 
  4. Plant the Seeds: Based on your landscaping preference, visit a garden store to pick up the seeds you need. Plant the seeds, rake them in and generously water the ground daily for several weeks thereafter.
  5. Use the Stump: If you have access to the stump shavings, add them to a plastic drum or container to decompose the woodchips. You can keep adding other organic, kitchen waste to the container to expedite the process. After 3 to 4 months, use this compost as a fertilizer for your garden.

Advice from Your Professional Landscaping and Tree Service Company

With the spring season right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your plans for improving your landscape or patio. Fortunately, working with a contractor can help you sort through the vast array of options when it comes to transforming your outdoor space.

If you decide to hire a paver to help you achieve your vision, make sure you know what to look for before choosing a contractor to work on your home. For landscaping design and installation services, we are here to help. Whether you want to enhance your existing landscape or create an entirely new one, our highly trained staff will be there every step of the way.

5 Tips for Hiring a Cement Paver Contractor  

Even if your landscape design is simple, installing your patio incorrectly could derail the entire project. Therefore, it is extremely important to choose a professional who will get the job done right the first time. Here are a few things you should consider when searching for a paving contractor for your patio:

  1. Do Your Research: Take your time to conduct an online search for pavers located in your area. You may also want to ask your family, friends, and neighbors for any recommendations and formulate a list of 2-3 options. Make sure to include only  contractors who specialize in patio installation and avoid  general contractors as they may cost more and have less experience in this specific field.  Remember, a good contractor will be licensed, bonded and insured.
  2. Call for an Estimate: If you find a contractor that fits your needs, call for an estimate. Not only is this information relevant but speaking to them will also give you a sense of how accommodating and organized they are. Determine if you are happy with the level of customer service you receive with the initial phone call. This will give you an idea of what to expect if you run into problems later on.
  3. Understand the Installation Process: Make sure you know how your contractor intends on handling your  patio installation. An experienced contractor will have the ability to clearly demonstrate how they will prepare the base, what materials are required, and how much it will cost. Your contractor should be able to listen to your needs and design a solution that fits with your goals for the space.
  4. Ask for Referrals: One of the easiest ways to find a trusted  patio installer is to look at the referrals page on the company website. If there are no referrals provided, ask for at least 5 or more information from your contractor. An experienced professional will be happy to fulfill your request, so you can make sure their work meets your expectations.
  5. Signing a Contract: Once you have reached the final stages of finding a contractor, ensure that everything you have discussed is in writing. If you are comfortable with your choice and their price is within your budget, a contract will help secure your working relationship. A sketch that includes all the information should also be enclosed.

How a Trusted Landscaping and Tree Service Company Can Help

Most homeowners don’t think about landscaping in the midst of winter. However, now is the perfect time to begin planning your landscaping project for the spring. Since the colder months are a slow season for landscaping businesses as well, get ahead of the crowd and contact a professional landscaping and tree company. By researching and planning ahead, your new landscape will be ready to enjoy as the first buds of spring begin to bloom.

5 Tips to Help You Get Started on Your Landscaping Projects

Before you know it, spring will arrive. If you have been dreaming of new landscaping ideas for your property, now is the time to put your plans into action. Here are 5 tips to help you get started on your spring landscaping project:

  1. Plan Early: During the winter, the last thing you may have on your mind is your spring landscaping project. However, winter is the best time to start preparing and plan out your ideas. By allowing yourself up to 6 months of advanced planning, you can carefully work on your designs at a more relaxed pace. In addition, permits and township approvals will take time. By submitting your requests before the spring frenzy, you can get a head start on your project.
  2. Know Your Surroundings: Where you live must be taken into consideration when planning your landscaping project. Choose plants and trees depending on the climate of your yard as certain species may be more suitable than others. Furthermore, prepare in advance if you will need fencing or wire mesh to ward off the spring invasion of local pests.
  3. Sketch Your Ideas: Drawing out your ideas on paper does not require you to be an experienced artist. A rough sketch of your landscaping project will help you focus on the areas that you would like to improve and features that you want to highlight. Planning out a strategy in advance will also guide you in determining how you want to implement the project and who will be responsible for certain tasks.
  4. Get Inspired: Take a walk around your property and observe the sun patterns. This simple observation can ultimately influence where you construct certain elements of your landscape such as a vegetable garden or patio area. If you need more inspiration, look at neighboring yards. Houses that are similar in size and style will help you visualize how various features will look on your own home. Other areas where you can find inspiration are magazines, television, and even your local home and garden center.
  5. Find a Professional Landscaper: One of the most crucial steps in planning for your spring landscaping project is to find a certified and licensed landscaping company. A professional landscaper can answer all your questions during the planning stage and help you develop a plan that suits your needs and budget.

Advice From Your Professional Landscaping and Tree Service Company

Winter storms are unforgiving and can really take their toll when it comes to your outdoor landscaping. However, there are several steps you can take to help your plants and trees bounce back after the long, cold months, even if you failed to prepare your yard for winter conditions in the fall. When it’s time to begin evaluating the damage and clearing up your property, work with a professional landscaping and tree company to help you maintain your lawn and garden well into spring.

5 Tips for Cleaning Up Winter Storm Damage  

If you need help with winter storm damage, consult a professional landscaper. We can help make an assessment and recommend the best course of action to save your plants and trees. Here are 5 ways you can deal with damage to your landscape from winter storms:

  1. Anticipate Storm Damage and Plant Strong Trees: Brittle species of trees such as elm, willow, and silver maple should not be planted in areas where heavy snow and ice occur during the winter months. Furthermore, planting trees that hold their leaves into late fall and early winter when ice storms are more prevalent should also be avoided. Instead, plant only strong tree species on your property that can withstand extreme temperatures.
  2. Assess the Damage: After each winter storm, it is important to take time and assess the damage to your property. Fortunately, many plant species are extremely resilient. For instance, small shrubs, leafless deciduous trees, and most types of needle-leaf pines that are covered in snow should be left alone. For plants that are bending under the weight of winter debris, gently shake the trunk or use a broom to sweep off the excess snow.
  3. Prune Branches: The most ideal time to prune damaged plants and trees is in the early spring. However, if you notice any loose branches that pose a risk to the safety of passers-by; these should be removed immediately at the time of damage. When pruning winter damaged trees and shrubs, make sure to use sharp tools to avoid causing further injury. Cut at an angle to prevent mold or fungal issues caused by moisture build-up. It is also important not to over-prune as this will reduce the tree’s ability to nourish itself through photosynthesis that occurs in the leaves.
  4. Fertilizer and Mulch: Fertilizer should only be used in the late spring in order to avoid stimulating new growth and damage during the colder months. However, fertilizer is an excellent way to help nourish and restore your existing plants and trees after a long winter. In addition, help conserve soil moisture and insulate the roots from cold temperatures by protecting your greenery with a layer of mulch.
  5. Hire an Arborist: Diagnosing the extent of winter storm damage can only be done by a trained and experienced professional. If you have larger trees on your property, work with an arborist who can help save your tree by installing cabling or bracing on damaged limbs. Remember, even after taking all these steps into consideration, it may take a year or two for the health of your plants and trees to be fully restored.

Advice From Your Trusted Landscaping and Tree Service Company

With the holidays quickly approaching, it is time to start decorating your home for Christmas. However, when it comes to setting up your tree, there are several safety tips you must keep in mind to ensure this Christmas season is memorable for all the right reasons. Decorating your Christmas tree can be one of the most carefree and enjoyable parts of the holiday. However, be sure to exercise caution during the process to prevent fires and other tree related injuries. Read below to learn more about Christmas tree safety from your professional landscaping service. We want you and your family to enjoy a safe and happy holiday season.

4 Christmas Tree Safety Tips  

Christmas trees are a perfect addition to any home during the holidays. Each is beautiful and unique, but a decorative tree can pose a serious risk if you do not follow proper precautions during set up. Here are a few safety tips for this holiday season:

  1. Buy Fresh Trees: When shopping for a Christmas tree, select one that is green and fresh. Look for a pine or spruce tree because they have flexible needles that bend, not break. In addition, needles that are hard to pull off are indicative of a fresh tree. Finally, inspect the trunk and ensure that it is sticky with sap. A fresh tree is less likely to become a fire hazard. If you are buying an artificial tree, look for a “fire resistant” label.
  2. Tree Placement: Once you have selected the right tree, cut off roughly 2 inches from the base and place it in a secure, water-holding stand. Make sure you keep water in the stand at all times to prevent your tree from drying out. Avoid placing your tree near fireplaces, radiators, or other sources that emit heat. Do not place your tree where it blocks doorways or exits.
  3. Inspect Your Lights: For Christmas trees, only use indoor lights that do not emit heat, such as LED lights. If you are using multiple strands of lights, plug them into various circuits around your home so you do not overload a single electrical outlet. Check for broken sockets, frayed wires, and loose bulbs. Discard and replace any damaged lights immediately. Lastly, ensure that your Christmas tree lights are unplugged in the evenings before bed.
  4. Ornamental Attachments: Take proper precautions when hanging ornaments from your Christmas trees. Use a ladder or step stool for out of reach places in order to avoid knocking your tree over. Fragile ornaments should not be on the lower part of your tree where children and pets have easy access. Additionally, lighted candles or flammable items should never be placed anywhere on your Christmas tree.
