Are you looking for ways to spruce up your commercial landscape this spring? Planting trees and shrubs is a great way to get started. Here in Houston, the spring is an ideal time to plant because the soil is cooler and plants have time to develop their roots before the hot, dry summer months arrive. The process of selecting and planting a tree or shrub isn’t overly complicated but it does require some thought and preparation.
Choosing the Right Trees & Shrubs for Your Commercial Landscape
When choosing trees and shrubs for your commercial landscape, there are several factors that need consideration. First, you want to make sure that they are aesthetically pleasing and fit in with the look of your existing landscape design. Second, you want them to be able to withstand our Houston climate. When selecting plants for a Houston landscape, it’s important to consider native species. Native species are plants that have adapted to the local climate and soil conditions and will require less maintenance than non-native varieties. They are generally easier to care for and better able to withstand periods of drought, flooding, or other weather extremes. Additionally, native species offer many benefits such as attracting local wildlife, providing food and shelter for birds and other beneficial insects, helping control erosion and conserving water. For these reasons, choosing native plants is an excellent way to create a thriving landscape while being mindful of the environment. Finally, you need to consider how much maintenance they will require over time—will they need frequent pruning? Will they attract pests or diseases? These are all important questions that should be asked before making any purchasing decisions.
It’s also important to remember that certain trees and shrubs can become invasive if not properly maintained. This means that they can spread quickly and create dense patches of vegetation that can crowd out other plants or even block pathways. To avoid this problem, it’s best to choose non-invasive species whenever possible. Additionally, do research on which trees/shrubs thrive in Houston’s climate so you don’t waste money on something that won’t survive in our harsh environment.
Once you have selected your new plants, it’s time to start planting! Hiring a professional commercial landscaper to install new shrubs, trees, and grasses on your property comes with numerous benefits. A professional landscape designer can assess your outdoor space, recommend the most suitable plants for your environment and provide expert advice on how best to arrange them. Furthermore, they have the right tools and equipment to ensure that planting is done correctly – avoiding costly mistakes or deformations caused by incorrect positioning or planting too deeply or shallow into the soil. Finally, because of their knowledge and expertise with plants, professional landscapers can provide valuable input about maintenance practices for each species of plant in order to keep them looking their best year after year.
In conclusion, springtime is an excellent time for commercial property owners in Houston to refresh their landscaping with new trees and shrubs! Doing so can add beauty and value while creating a more inviting atmosphere for customers or tenants alike!
