Connecticut Tree Removal Services

Winter can be especially tough on trees in your yard. A crack in a tree can be a sign that the tree is already falling and it would not take much for these trees to snap and fall to the ground. Strong winds and heavy ice or snow on the limbs can be very hazardous and these types of situations make tree removal a necessity. Here are some ways that you can protect your home, property and family from trees in your yard during the winter months:

1. Inspect trees on your property
By inspecting trees and addressing potential problems, you can protect your home, save lives, and safeguard the investment that healthy trees add to your property. If you have questions or concerns about any of your trees, our Connecticut Tree Professionals can come out and inspect your trees for you.

2. Prune your trees
Tree pruning helps your landscape flourish by addressing architectural tree care concerns such as safety, structural integrity, shape and appearance. Tree pruning services performed by a professional arborist will enhance the natural beauty of your trees and shrubs and help you preserve the strength, stature and seasonal character they add to your property. Tree pruning can protect against storm damage and the danger of falling limbs. This is particularly a concern for trees along pedestrian paths, driveways, and surrounding buildings.

Spring Lawncare Tips for a Healthy Connecticut Lawn

A healthy Hamden, Connecticut summer lawn starts with spring maintenance. When the snow starts to melt and winter’s receding snow reveals bare spots, invasive plants and other problems can occur, which can seriously jeopardize the health of your lawn through the Spring and Summer months.

Below is a list of 5 important Lawncare Tips, which will help you to achieve a beautiful landscape for your Connecticut property.

  • Cleaning and Repairing Your Lawn in Spring – Affordable Landscaping & Tree Service LLC recommends homeowners should take the necessary time to remove any debris from their existing yards such as: twigs, branches, leaves, pet droppings and winter road gravel. By raking the lawn this helps dethatch and promote growth.
  • Planting Grass in the Spring – As part of the spring startup process, dead or damaged grass patches should be reseeded in early March or April. The most important thing to do is to provide newly developing seeds with enough water for proper growth and development.
  • Fertilizing Grass in the Spring – Adequate fertilization plays a major role in producing and maintaining a dense, pest/weed-resistant turf for your Southbury, CT property
  • Lawn Care Equipment Maintenance in the Spring – A key component of having a lawn that is beautiful and healthy is making sure your lawn mower is in good condition. Be sure to service mowing equipment regularly and use a lawn mower blade sharpening service.
  • Don’t mow your lawn too short – Grass will grow best at approximately two inches and higher, so keep it a minimum of this height during the first few cuts in spring.

With so many things factors involved with properly maintaining your Connecticut property, why not hire the experienced professionals at Affordable Landscaping & Tree Service LLC to maintain it for you. Call us today at 203-287-8894 for a free estimate on your next property maintenance project.
