When it Comes to Landscaping, We Never Sleep

ShrubTrimming

Winter in the St. Cloud area this year has been marked by generally mild temperatures with 4-5 cold days within a two week period. Such weather is ideal for shrub trimming. The lack of snowfall combined with the fact that shrubs are dormant this time of year means preliminary trimming can occur with minimal chance of damage to the surrounding plant life.

Emerald Companies (St. Cloud MN) has a rapidly filling schedule of February jobs, so if you are interested in having your landscaping looked at, please call as soon as possible.

Generally most landscaping projects can begin after the first thaw with the installation of landscaping edging. This usually requires two weeks of planning prior to the official start of the project. Emerald Companies recommends having one of our experts come out to observe your yard in person and finalize measurements along with other aspects of your project.

We might be able to start on your landscape project sooner than you think! Call Emerald Companies today (320) 251-5296.

Have Emerald Companies Trim Your Shrubs

There is of course many reasons to trim your shrubs and keep your landscape looking beautiful. If you have overgrown shrubs and plants that need some TLC, contact the experts at Emerald Companies in Waite Park MN for the help your shrubs desperately need. 

Reasons for pruning

Prune to promote plant health

  • Remove dead or dying branches injured by disease, severe insect infestation, animals, storms, or other adverse mechanical damage.
  • Remove branches and branch stubs that rub together.

Avoid topping trees. Removing large branches leaves stubs that can cause several health problems. It also destroys the plant’s natural shape and promotes suckering and development of weak branch structure.

Prune to maintain plants; intended purposes in a landscape, such as:

  • encouraging flower and fruit development,
  • maintaining a dense hedge, or
  • maintaining a desired tree form or special garden forms.
