Tips & Resources

 

 

Caring for Your Trees & Shrubs

Just like your lawn, trees and shrubs need feeding to thrive in the harsh Florida summers. If planted in the lawn, the tree will benefit from the same fertilizer that is applied to the grass. But if you you are not careful, the use a lawn fertilizer that contains herbicides for broad-leaf weeds can damage or even possibly kill trees. S&O Greenworks can help to make sure all of your trees & shrubs thrive with a Customized Tree & Shrub Service Plan.

When planting a young tree, make sure to leave a ring of mulch three to ten feet in diameter around the base of the tree (depending on tree size). Grass that grows too close to a young tree can actually be harmful. When you apply mulch around the base of a young tree, it helps to insulate the soil and retain moisture. It also prevents soil compaction, keep out weeds and reduces wear and tear to your lawn mower.

 

 

Improving Your Yard and Landscape

Most people love trees, but in the Florida climate it is sometimes difficult to maintain a healthy, vibrant yard under those trees. You can overcome this by planting shade-tolerant grass under your trees and setting your mower blade to a high setting. When you leave a longer grass blade, it gives your yard the ability to trap light and thrive. If however you need more light it is good practice to periodically prune your trees.

With an well established Florida lawn, you should choose a species of tree that casts filtered shade to prevent future problems from happening. Trees will not only beautify your yard and increase your property value, they can help you save energy costs. The cooling properties created by their shade, especially in Florida, can help lower your home’s air conditioning needs.
