It’s Not Too Late to Plant Shrubs

Garden shrubs can be both ornamental and practical. Many shrubs offer scented flowers and colorful foliage. However, shrubs also provide a great way to add privacy and hide anything unsightly around your commercial property like trash cans, air conditioner units, and more. That way, you can present a much more attractive landscape. There is still time this spring to plant shrubs around your commercial property. You can choose from a variety of methods for planting shrubs varies, depending on whether the shrubs you are planting have a burlap rootball or bare roots or they are being replanted from a container. Here are some ways to plant shrubs. First, you'll need to identify the most ideal locations around your commercial property for the shrubs. Select shrubs that thrive in your climate as well as find a location that meets the shrubs' needs for sun or shade, moisture, and soil composition. When picking a location, know how big the shrub will grow to ensure there is enough space. Remember that roots spread laterally so keep that in mind for planting location. Measure the height of the roots from the ground to the “root flare,” which is the part of the shrub at the base of the trunk where roots begin to spread out. Once you’ve measured the rootball, then dig out the soil and place it on a tarp.  After digging the hole for the shrub, fill it with water. Test to see how it drains by leaving the water for 24 hours. If it has drained away, then there is good drainage for the shrub. Place the shrub in the hole. Always move these shrubs by the roots rather than grabbing them the trunk or branches. The root flare should be at or slightly above the natural ground level. If it's wrapped in burlap, cut that and any string or wire from the root ball. Next, fill the hole gradually. Don’t add fertilizer, peat moss, or mulch at this point. Make sure there are no rocks or debris around the shrub. Water the shrub and allow the water to soak into the soil for several hours after you plant. From there, you'll water it approximately once per week. If you would prefer professional assistance with planting shrubs around your commercial property, contact us now to learn more!

Why Your Landscape May Need Renovation

Landscape maintenance is one thing, but your landscape may actually be in need of renovation. While landscape maintenance can help an area look tidier and trim, there are times when it may need more than mowing or weed removal. Maintenance involves mowing, fertilizing, pest control, pruning, trimming and weeding. Over time, though, that will not be enough as lawns, trees, and plants begin to grow quickly and crowd each other. Because it's constantly changing, you can't just maintain a landscape. You need to undertake landscape renovation. Now, it's time to think about restoring and revitalizing your lawn and flower beds.  This includes replacing, removing and upgrading plants for the season or providing a new look and feel to your commercial landscape.  Also, trees may have grown so much that their crowns need to be thinned or they are impacting concrete and parking lots so need to be removed.   Remulching also falls under landscape renovation to provide a nice appearance and good coverage against any weeds. Turf most definitely must undergo regular renovation. This is because lawns can become compacted so they need aeration and seeding. Other reasons for landscape renovation may be due to the need to create a more environmentally friendly landscape that uses little to no water. Upcoming special events or a new remodel to your commercial business may also signal the need for landscape renovation. Finally, Mother Nature also has a way of reminding us that there is a need for commercial landscape renovation. For example, storms, snow, ice, and flooding may require landscape cleanup and restoration. Be sure to plan out what you want to renovate with your commercial landscape before ripping everything out. Similar to home renovations, it costs less and goes smoothly when you plan everything in advance. Have a budget in mind to also ensure you make the financial decisions that are right for your business. Consider working with a professional commercial landscape company that has the knowledge, skill set, and experience to provide direction and guidance on what works for your commercial property and business budget.
