Common Spring Maintenance in Dallas

If you need landscape maintenance in Dallas in preparation for spring, we recommend speaking to one of our professional landscapers for thorough and custom recommendations. We can help you create a tailored maintenance plan for your property.

Here are services that are commonly needed for our client's properties.

Cutbacks and Clean Up

Fall and winter can wreak havoc on your landscape. Trees and bushes can die. Leaves collect in the flower beds. Weeds can start cropping up. Your spring landscape maintenance crew will start by cleaning up your flower beds and your lawn. This clean-up is essential and can improve the overall look of your home’s garden in a matter of hours.

Trimming Trees and Shrubs

Spring is also a great time to trim trees and shrubs. This is when dead branches get pruned away to allow for new growth to emerge. New plant growth will appear quickly if you trim bushes and shrubs in the spring. However, it is important to know that not all shrubs and bushes benefit from spring trimming. A professional landscape maintenance team will know which trees and bushes to trim and which ones to leave alone. Timing is everything.

Replacing Plants and Adding Spring Color

The best part of spring is all the new flowers that get to bloom. This adds instant color to your garden. Your Dallas landscape company can replace old plants with new ones and add spring color to your home. A professional landscaper can assess existing plants and decide which ones need to get removed, divided, or fertilized to get the most out of them.
