As the cold Chicago winter has now come to a close, temperatures are rising and landscapes are coming back to life. Warm weather means a better environment for planting, and spring is that time of year. This is the perfect time to accentuate your commercial property with bright color, using plants to attract new visitors and potential business. However, color is not the only way to attract attention, larger pieces of plant material like trees and shrubs are ripe for planting this spring. Trees and shrubs can provide structure and symmetry to the aesthetic of your landscape, as well as privacy to your tenants. In this blog, we are going to discuss what you need to know about tree and shrub installation this spring.

Benefits of Trees and Shrub Installation

So far we have touched on a couple of the benefits of tree and shrub installation. As trees can grow upwards of 30 feet at maturity, they can be strategically installed in order to provide visual protection for your property. The same can be said for shrubs, although on a smaller scale. They can be used to section off smaller pieces of your landscape, such as patios or common areas. Additionally, they can provide year-round color should you decide to install evergreen varieties. Trees and shrubs also soak up a ton of water, which can improve drainage and reduce soil erosion in your landscape. Also, you cannot forget that you get a ton of creative freedom when installing trees and shrubs, with many varieties to choose from.

Tree And Shrub Installation In The Spring

Tree and Shrub Maintenance

Now that you have installed some trees and shrubs in your landscape, they will need to be maintained. There are a few different types of maintenance that will need to be performed, with more intensive maintenance taking place directly after installation. For new installs, you are going to want to fertilize, and water frequently for a big nutrient boost right as growth takes off. Then, for any mature tree or shrub, you will need to prune in both the spring and fall. This is the process of removing dead or diseased limbs and making room for new growth. Also allowing for reshaping of the plant material, you can direct growth away from hazardous areas, or just freshen up the look. When exactly you perform the pruning process will depend on the specific variety of trees or shrubs, but it will need to be done once a year. Additionally, every few years you will need to perform some sort of rejuvenation pruning, where you cut the plant material down to its base in order to reset long-term growth. Does this seem complicated? Well, our next section might help you out.
