Loving Your Little Landscape

I have never been a natural gardener. For years, I struggled to keep basic houseplants alive, only to kill them at the first opportunity. It was difficult and stressful to buy a home with a yard, but I knew that I might be able to learn what I was doing wrong and correct the problem. To start off, I focused heavily on the lawn, and tried hard to keep it trimmed and well-maintained. Next, I cleaned up the flowerbeds. It was a lot of work, but I knew that it would pay off in the end. When I was done, my front yard was gorgeous, and guess what--it even stayed alive. This blog is all about loving your little landscape.

4 Important Residential Tree Services Offered By Landscaping Companies

by Charlotte White

A lot of people think that landscaping companies only offer lawn maintenance services, such as mowing, edging, and leaf blowing. While these services are indeed offered by most landscaping businesses, there's so much more that they can do for you, especially when it comes to your trees. In fact, many landscaping companies offer a wide range of residential tree services that can benefit you and your home in a number of ways. For instance, most companies offer tree trimming, tree pruning, and tree removal services. This guide will introduce you to each of these important tree services so that you can make an informed decision about which ones are right for you and your home. 

Trimming and Pruning

One of the most common and important residential tree services offered by landscaping companies is trimming and pruning. These services are often confused with one another, but they're actually two very different services. Trimming refers to the process of removing branches that are hanging over your roof or that are otherwise precariously positioned. Pruning, on the other hand, is the process of carefully removing specific branches in order to promote the growth of the tree. Most landscaping companies recommend that you have your trees trimmed and pruned regularly to keep them healthy and looking their best.

Tree Removal

As the name suggests, this service involves removing a tree from your property entirely. This is often necessary when a tree is too close to your home or poses a safety hazard. It's also sometimes necessary when a tree is simply too large or unhealthy to be saved. If you need to have a tree removed from your property, it's important to hire a reputable and experienced landscaping company to do the job. This is not a job that you should attempt to do on your own.

Stump Grinding

Once a tree has been removed, you'll be left with a stump. This can be unsightly and can even pose a safety hazard. Fortunately, most companies offer stump grinding services. This involves using a special machine to grind the stump down into small pieces. Once the stump has been ground down, it will be much easier to remove.


If you're looking to add some new trees to your property, most landscaping companies can help. They can advise you on which trees will do well in your climate and soil type and can even help you choose the perfect spot to plant them. Once you've made your decision, they can do the planting for you.

As you can see, there is a wide range of residential tree services offered by most landscaping companies. These services can benefit you and your home in a number of ways. Be sure to take advantage of them if you can. Contact a residential tree service today to get started.
