Shrub Care in Minneapolis
Many homeowners treat shrubs as an afterthought to the yard’s look. But with the right care and planning, shrubs are one of the easiest and effective ways to add dimension, character, and color to your lawn. The average shrub lasts for approximately 5 years, but this is because most shrubs are not properly cared for. With the proper maintenance regimen, the average shrub can live for 20 or more years. Minneapolis’ Tree Squad understands the specific care needs of shrubs in the Twin Cities climate, and can help you breathe life into your yard with vibrant, healthy shrubs.
Why Choose Our Shrub Care Services?
The typical homeowner is likely to overprune, underprune or improperly prune their shrubs. Many shrubs – especially flowering shrubs – cannot simply be pruned when they start to look shabby. Flowering shrubs have to be pruned around their natural blossoming cycle, ideally with the first pruning just before they begin to flower. Failing to take the timing of the shrubs blossoms into account will mean that you won’t get to enjoy the full beauty of the shrub.
Proper pruning requires detailed understanding of the shrub’s life cycle, as well as spatial knowledge about how to supply all parts of the shrub with what it needs. Proper pruning technique supplies interior branches with the sunlight they need to conduct photosynthesis. If this isn’t done correctly, the shrub’s inside branches will wither, causing the shrub to hollow out from the interior.
