Both owners of residential as well as commercial locations undoubtedly understand the importance of proper tree and shrub care in order to have the continued growth and development of their particular landscape investments. Owners thus know that they need a landscape company who is a trusted professional, has total dedication to landscaping so that they may apply only the paramount treatments, and always at the right times to ensure the continual development and growth of their trees and shrubs. After all, trees and shrubs are a significant part of both the character and beauty of your landscaping design, so that their health must be continued at all times.
When you call upon a professional such as Vermont’s own Open Earth Landscaping, they will come to systematically evaluate the current condition of your landscape, using their analysis to put together the very best service program for your tree and shrub care. You will find that come spring they will apply liquid nutrients by either drenching the root zones or even by injection whichever is best to guarantee healthy foliage color, growth and vigor. Springtime means early growth protection via the use of additional nutrients that will thus minimize any seasonal damage. Deep knowledge of damaging insects and diseases means that Open Earth Landscaping will know precisely what to do to prevent them for you.
Interestingly enough few people know that they need mid-season and late-season protection for their foliage. Our specialists are extremely aware of late-occurring pests, insects and diseases. Then even later in the season, your newly planted trees and shrubs will receive the necessary nutritional support needed in order to prepare them for winter. Because many insects become active during winter, additional control treatments are absolutely mandatory. Although many insects flee the cold, many over winter in your foliage. For instance honeybees cluster to keep themselves warm, ants and termites dig past your frost line, and some go into winter torpor. Many of them hibernate, which when speaking of insects is referred to as diapause. Now, don’t laugh, because it’s totally true, but some insects make their own antifreeze. In insects it is called glycerol, and it is made in the insect’s body during fall. Come spring, their glycerol levels plummet once more.
Open Earth Landscaping knows where over winter pests hide. For instance they will carefully inspect your hollow plant stems, within logs, in clumps of plants or grass, rocks, tree bark, and of course leaf litter.
In addition, you will find that they know exactly when and how to prune thus giving the very best tree and shrub care possible. Proper pruning is an art although it is mainly referred to as a horticultural practice. Pruning is not only preventative maintenance, but your landscaper contractor knows it is based on not just science but also fine aesthetics. They understand exactly how to prevent future problems by pruning correctly and accomplishing it during the tree or shrub’s formative years, as it should be. In Vermont, no other landscaping company knows as much as Open Earth Landscaping for tree and shrub care.
