As winter comes to an end, many are ready to welcome the warmer weather of spring and the arrival of green landscapes again. However, while people might welcome spring with open arms, our properties might not be quite ready for warmer weather and spring growth. Our LMC blog post today focuses on how your commercial property can be ready for the spring to ensure steady and stable growth throughout the year.
First, it’s important to remember that no matter the size of your commercial property or what kinds of plant life grow on your land, it all needs regular irrigation because relying solely on rainfall will not allow your property to thrive. Commercial properties should supplement with scheduled irrigation in order to promote growth during dry periods or droughts. Commercial properties should either have new irrigation systems professionally installed, or have existing systems tested for functionality and accuracy before spring growth begins.
Deep Root Fertilization
Commercial property owners should also consider promoting tree growth through Deep Root Fertilization. This process helps strengthen tree health by applying nutrient-rich fertilizer directly to tree root systems to encourage growth and provide greater stability. Deep Root Fertilization can be especially beneficial in the Gulf Coast where clay soil can make it difficult for tree roots to get the soil nutrients and minerals needed for growth.
Finally, spring means the start of a steady period of growth for tree branches and foliage, but without strategic tree pruning, tree growth can become out of control. Tree pruning helps promote tree health by removing dead or broken limbs and branches, as well as helping shape and encourage tree growth in specific directions. In addition to helping shape future tree growth, tree pruning can also help stabilize the tree by preventing uneven growth or overgrown branches that break off due to excess weight.
