One of the first things people notice when looking to buy or rent a home, stop and eat at a business, or even walk through a local park, is the landscaping. Beautiful trees and flowers, along with a nice fence, and some well-placed bushes not only livens up the home or business but also presents a clean and fresh environment that lasts longer than the initial walk through the yard.
Presentation of a yard is vitally important to not only making yourself but also your guests happy. Having dead flowers, dead patches of grass, and a broken fence can leave one feeling uneasy about the environment in which they are about to step in. As the spring approaches, it is time to spruce up your yard with a few landscaping tricks, not only increase your property value but also the visual and mental aesthetic of your house.
Taking Care of the Trees in Your Yard
The trees in your yard provide more than just shade on a hot sunny day, they also help provide clean air and beautiful aesthetic as light filters through the branches and leaves. Trees, though, can grow sick from insects, diseases, and changes in weather. It is important to make sure that your trees are getting the care and attention that they need. Here are the signs that your trees may need some help:
- Insect infestations
- Leaves are discolored
- There are root and trunk fungal growth
- Premature shedding of leaves
- Dead branches
If you notice any of these signs, it would be beneficial to get in contact with a team who is passionate about the well-being and care of the world’s trees.

Making Sure to Pull Up the Weeds
If you are looking for something more personal and hands-on to help spruce up your yard, it wouldn’t hurt to check near trees, bushes, and flowers for the pesky weed. Weeds steal nutrients from the other plants and often times grow quickly, taking up more space and blocking out valuable sunlight from your other plants. Not to mention that they are also water hogs and can cause your plants to die from dehydration.
Remove Dead Plants and Trees From Your Yard.
It’s always hard to let go of a beloved friend, and letting go of a plant you had around your home or business forever can be as equally as hard. Dead plants pose a risk to not only your plants but also to the people visiting your home or business. They are a playground for insects which can cause irritation to your guests, devastation to your plants, and are in general a pain to get rid of. Dead trees are dangerous during severe storms or even strong winds as they can easily fall over and wreck your yard, or worse, your home/business. A fallen tree can leave behind a hazardous environment and leave a hefty financial strain due to needed repairs on roofs and windows.
You can always replace dead plants with new ones, which will allow for the soil to remain healthy, and add a new look to your yard. If you need help with tree or bush removal, as well as finding the next perfect tree or bush for your yard, Fort Worth Arborist Co. can aid with that too! Just give us a call at 817-975-0180.
Fences add a unique look to a yard. Not only does it add a secure feeling to the premise but it also makes the yard look unified. Here are a few fence ideas to help you decide what would work best with your landscaping needs.
- Wooden Fences are perfect for family homes and small private business. They add a classy homey feel to any yard.
- Wrought Iron Fence is a little more pricey of an investment but it leaves behind a rustic aesthetic.
- Chain-link fences are used generally more for commercial businesses as they give a statement of security.
If your fence is looking a little-worn down it might be time to give it some good TLC, such as a new paint job or replacing some of the planks. Just don’t forget to add in some plants to help compliment whatever style of fence you are aiming towards, whether it be some pink roses to complement your dark wooden fence or maybe some white chrysanthemums to give a contrast to the wrought iron fence.
