Great lawn and landscaping information for Central Florida.
Autumn is a time for preparing your landscape for the upcoming winter months. One of the services your landscape needs during the fall is trimming. Fall trimming prevents diseases, pest infestations, makes room for new growth, and prepares your landscape for its winter dormant period.
Here are some reasons why your landscape in Palmetto, Parrish, Bradenton, and the surrounding areas of Florida, needs a fall trimming.
Diseases are a common blight among landscape plants, as are pest infestations. Any time part of your plant becomes infected with a contagious disease or suffers from a pest infestation, the best remedy is to trim these areas off. Trimming off diseased parts of your plants will prevent the disease from spreading to the rest of the plant and beyond to the rest of your landscape. Pests are often attracted to weaker parts of your plants as those are the most susceptible areas of your landscape plants. Trimming helps prevent infestation by removing these diseased, dying limbs and leaving behind strong ones that are resilient against disease and infestation.
Palm trees are fun, beautiful trees to grow, and thrive perfectly in our sunny Florida climate. Because of this, many homeowners enjoy growing palms in their yard. While palm trees are extremely rewarding to grow, they require special care to ensure they grow strong and healthy.
Here are some tips for preparing your palm trees for cooler weather in Palmetto, Parrish, Bradenton, and the surrounding areas.
When planting a new palm, it’s important to provide it with specialized care to prevent it from dying. Your palm’s root system is very sensitive and fragile, therefore you should never fertilize it before planting as this will burn the roots and cause your tree to die. Acclimatize your palms before planting them in direct sunlight. Many nurseries can be shaded, and if your palm was grown under shade, you need to make sure it acclimates to your specific area before planting it in the ground. To do this, keep it in a screened-in, shaded area to avoid sunburn and slowly place them in areas with more and more direct sunlight.
