Reasons Your Landscape Needs a Fall Trimming

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.


Fall Trimming Prevents Diseases & Pest Infestation

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.
