The trees and shrubs on your property play a large role in its overall curb appeal, so you'll want to make sure that they are always healthy and looking their best. To ensure that your trees and shrubs always have the nutrients that they need to thrive, you should fertilize them once a year. You should also always keep an eye out for any signs of diseases or insect infestations, and if you notice any, you'll want to take care of them right away so that the problem doesn't spread to other parts of your plants. While caring for your trees and shrubs might seem challenging, it doesn't have to be. Instead of trying to do it yourself, your best bet is to sign up for a professional tree and shrub program. That's because professionals know exactly how to care for trees and shrubs in our area of Georgia and you'll be able to rest easy knowing that your plants are in good hands.
You should fertilize your trees and shrubs once a year.
One of the most important things you can do to keep your trees and shrubs healthy is to fertilize them once a year. Fertilizer contains nutrients that your plants will need to thrive throughout the year. While fertilizers can contain a lot of different nutrients, there are 3 main ones that stand out above the rest:
- Nitrogen - Nitrogen helps stimulate growth and is responsible for giving the leaves on your trees and shrubs their green color.
- Potassium - Potassium helps strengthen your trees and shrubs so that they can stand up to stressors like drought, diseases, and insect infestations.
- Phosphorus - This nutrient aids in the root growth of your plants and improves their resilience to stressors.
Always keep an eye out for diseases and insect infections.
Another way you can help ensure your trees and shrubs stay healthy throughout the year is to monitor them for any signs of diseases or insect infestations. If you notice that your plants are showing signs of a disease or are infested with insects, you'll want to treat them right away so the problem doesn't spread to other parts of your plants. Some common signs to be on the lookout for that may indicate that your plants are dealing with a disease or insect infestation include:
- Insects roaming around
- Distorted foliage
- White spots that appear on twigs, branches, and leaves
- Holes in the leaves
Keep your trees healthy throughout the year by signing up for a tree and shrub care program.
Caring for your trees and shrubs takes a lot of work, and it can be a hassle to do on your own. If you want to ensure that your plants stay in good health throughout the year, your best bet is to sign up for a professional tree and shrub care program. When you sign up for this type of program, professionals will administer a fertilization treatment to your plants to ensure they have the nutrients they need to thrive throughout the year. They will also keep an eye out for any signs of diseases or insect infestations and if they spot any, they can administer curative treatments to eliminate them.
