Winter Pruning

Winter Pruning Guide for Trees and Shrubs

Trees and shrubs don’t just offer greeneries but they can also serve as a boundary between adjoining properties. Aside from that, they can be a barrier too, for keeping stray animals from entering your property or add to the overall appearance to your property. Without proper care and pruning, they can become an eyesore or worse, pose a risk to your property and family. Most people don’t recognize the need for pruning until spring and summer, so why should you consider it now?

Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn; Fall is the Best Time for This

Core aeration is when you remove small “cores” of soil from your lawn. It’s also called coring or spiking. Core aeration makes your lawn healthier and decreases the need for maintenance. It’s win-win!

Aeration occurs naturally through the process of air exchange between the atmosphere and the soil. When the soil becomes compacted or overloaded with debris, natural aeration needs human intervention. Plan to aerate your home lawn every year. If you need to aerate a busier lawn, such as on a golf fairway or in a public park, you may need to aerate up to five times annually.
