Feeling Winter's Wrath This Summer
As Mark mentioned is his article, a number of trees sustained substantial damage from this past winter’s extreme cold. Hardest hit were the Japanese Maple, Burning Bush, Boxwood and the Ornamental Pear. Many plants experienced damage that was not immediately apparent and were slow to rebound due to winter’s extremely harsh conditions.
In some cases, plants can be pruned back to green growth and allowed to regrow. Unfortunately, others may need to be replaced. If that is the case, this would be a good opportunity to schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable technicians and discuss your options of plant material.
Native trees and shrubs, along with a well-maintained landscape tend to tolerate extreme swings in weather patterns. LawnCare by Walter offers regularly scheduled visits to help prolong you plants’ overall health. We can develop an affordable maintenance plan for your property and/or help with a new selection of plants for your garden or property. Call our office today and schedule your appointment for a no-obligation visit.
