Why Would You Need A Tree And Shrub Care Service?
The largest investment that you will ever make in your life is a property. And this is especially true when it is a landed property. And by landed property this usually means one that has a front garden and in most cases a yard. And with that investment comes a whole lot of other cares and concerns. These usually revolve around the care for the trees and shrubbery that come bundled with that wonderful investment.
But the investment that a homeowner makes is not only monetary – he or she also invests in a place that will provide shelter and joy for friends and family. And the care of those growing trees and shrubs is part and parcel of keeping the home attractive – and ensuring that the investment continues to appreciate.
There have been studies by real estate professionals that show that the upkeep of a garden and the plants that are part of it can significantly increase the value of a home. But in today’s highly stressed environment it may be a little too much to ask a homeowner to engage themselves completely with the care of their trees and shrubbery.
This may be why so many homeowners engage the services of professional tree and shrub care service providers.
However there are a number of considerations that have to be taken into account when retaining the services of these professionals – after all shouldn’t it be a simple matter to take of the issues surrounding a tree or shrub by yourself?
A simple visit to a big box store or a garden cater should provide all the tools that are required to attend to the simple task of trimming back shrubs or trees.
The fact of the matter is that it is neither simple nor not labor intensive to attend to these matters yourself.
It is far better to leave the shrubbery and the trees to those professionals who actually have the correct skillsets and experience to make the job not only easier but also assure that your garden or yard remains in pristine condition and maximizes the value of the property.
A single mistake in the care of plants such as shrubs and trees can cause permanent damage. Although for many people the reason to trim back plants such as shrubs and trees is to maximize the aesthetic appeal of those plants there are other considerations that need to be taken into account.
First and perhaps most importantly there is the continued health of the plants. Without an in depth knowledge of a particular species the harm that can be done by someone who is inexperienced in the care of shrubs and trees can result in the plants death. At the very least it may stunt the growth of that plant and may also then require specialist care in order to return the plant to a healthy state.
Each of these plants require specific care in terms of enabling them to absorb maximum nutrients from the soil, as well as water requirements and exposure to sunlight.
By trimming back the growth of these plants without expert knowledge the ability of the plant to thrive is placed in jeopardy.
However in some instances it is not only the well being of the plant that can be placed in jeopardy. It is the health and safety of the people who stay in the home where those plants are fixtures in the garden.
It takes an expert eye and many years of experience to spot when a plant – especially a large tree is not in full health. Often disease or rot can affect branches without there being any obvious signs of a problem.
This can have far reaching consequences. Adverse weather conditions are especially dangerous. High winds and heavy snowfall can cause weakened branches to fail and those can cause immense damage to homes. In some cases this damage will not be covered by standard homeowners insurance.
Aside from the undoubted financial impact of an insurance claim caused by this sort of damage there is the possibility that a falling branch from amature and large tree might cause severe injury.
It is far better to call in the experts when it comes to tree and shrub care. They are experts in their field and can provide assistance in all aspects of the care of these plants. The value of that asset – the home is directly influenced by the health and appearance of the fixtures, natural and otherwise of the garden. Sometimes it is simply good sense to engage the services of a company that will remove the stress and strain of caring for delicate growing plants within the garden environment.
You will after all be protecting that most valued of assets – your home.
