If you want your plants to stay healthy and look their best throughout the year, you'll need to trim and prune them. Even though both of these practices are beneficial for your plants, they each serve their own unique purpose. Trimming is primarily for aesthetic purposes to keep your plants looking neat and manicured. Pruning is dedicated to the health of your trees and shrubs and involves removing dead or diseased branches so the problem doesn't spread to the rest of your plant. You can trim your plants any time they are starting to look unkempt, but you should only prune them when needed because pruning at the wrong time can be detrimental to the health of your plants. It's a good idea to hire professionals to trim and prune your plants because they are familiar with the plants in Georgia and will make sure they follow best practices to ensure they don't damage them.
Trimming keeps your plants looking neat and manicured.
To ensure your plants are looking neat and manicured throughout the year, they should be trimmed regularly. Trimming involves cutting overgrown branches from your plants to keep them from becoming overgrown and looking unkempt. You can also trim your plants to shape them, allowing you to control how they look.
Pruning maintains the health of your trees and shrubs.
Pruning is performed to maintain the health of your trees and shrubs by removing any parts that are dead, diseased, or infested with insects. By pruning the parts of your plants that are dealing with the aforementioned problems, you can prevent those problems from spreading to the rest of your plants. Pruning can also benefit your trees and shrubs by:
- Freeing up important resources for the plant
- Removing dead branches that become safety issues around your property
- Promoting the natural shape and healthy growth of your plants
When should trimming and pruning be performed?
While your plants will need to be trimmed and pruned throughout the year to keep them healthy and looking their best, you should make sure that you are performing each of these services at the right time. Trimming can usually be done any time your plants are starting to look overgrown and unkempt. Once they start to affect your property's curb appeal negatively, then it is time to trim them. On the other hand, pruning should only be done when needed because it can harm your plants' overall health if done at the wrong time.
To ensure that you don't cause any damage to your plants, you should always hire a professional to trim and prune them. That's because professionals will be familiar with the plants in our area of Georgia and will know exactly when they need to be trimmed and pruned. Professionals will always follow best practices to ensure that they don't cause any damage to your plants when they trim and prune them.
Before hiring a company to trim and prune your plants, make sure that they will create a customized schedule based on the type of plants you have.
