The weather’s getting warmer, and the days longer. Spring is only a few days away.
So, it’s time to consider the world outside the warm box of a home you’ve been huddled up in all winter. It’s time to think about outside, your trees, and your outdoor space.
It’s a time for celebration—and a challenge. What’s the best way to get your space ready for the spring and summer?
The consulting arborists and professional staff at Jarvis Tree Services have some suggestions:
- First, look for signs of trouble. Are there trees or plants on your property showing any indications of disease or damage? If so, get a certified arborist to assess the damage. This can be critical—a damaged or diseased tree could spread the disease to other plants, or it may break or fail, damaging landscaping and buildings, and possibly causing injury.
- Next, ask yourself if you want anything new or changes made. Spring is a good time to make changes in landscape design. You can simply refresh your space, or take on something bigger. A certified arborist can help guide you, plus help you install trees or other plants that require extra care.
- Establish your maintenance plan. If your plants and trees have been in place for a while, chances are they’ll need pruning and shaping. They may also need care to protect against disease, or nutrients that are missing. A professional tree service like Jarvis Tree Experts can help you assess this, and help you forecast when maintenance will be needed, and what to budget for it.
- Finally, think about how you want to enjoy your space. Many people create great outdoor spaces, but they don’t think to set aside time to use them. Now that we’re coming out of the pandemic, outdoor parties can be a safer transition back to social engagements. Or you may just want to have relaxing time with your family.
Consider all the things you can do outdoors. And don’t let the opportunity pass you by.
