Palm Tree Care and Maintenance

It’s important to know how to care for palm trees in Southern California. Unlike typical trees, palm roots do not grow deep into the soil as the palm tree grows. If a terminal bud on the trunk is injured, this may result in the death of the palm tree. Although the majority of palms grown in containers, others can flurish in front or back yards. The secret to healthy and beautiful palm trees lies in regularly maintaining their foliage to keep them green and healthy.

We specialize in many Palm tree varieties – cabbage palm, royal balm, Chinese fan palm, sabal palm, fishtail palm, pindo palm, queen palm, windmill palm, and Carpentaria palm.  Contact us to beautify your palm trees today!

Services: Tree stump grinding, Tree trimming & pruning, Tree removal

“As a local HVAC contractor myself, I am very impressed with the way this company operates. I spoke with the owners, got a timely estimate which I accepted.

Next the crew came out and completed the job in a very professional manner with a lot of hustle (these guys work extremely hard).

I was very impressed to see the way that they took down a gigantic tree & other stump removal‘s around the property.

I checked around for other estimates, and this company was very competitive I would highly recommend them.”

Why You Should Do Your Own Landscaping?

If you have ever tried to do a landscaping project before, you know from first hand experience that it isn’t the simplest task to do. Although anyone can landscape, it takes preparation and knowledge to do it successfully. The advice and tips below will help you stay prepared and informed for your next landscaping project.

To help pay for your project, you should divide it into different stages. You will only have to pay for one stage at a time. If landscaping is a hobby for you, taking your time is important since creating the landscape is often more fun than maintaining it on a regular basis.

Do not plant too much of the same plant in your garden unless it is one that can withstand all type of weather conditions. If you place the same kind of plants throughout your garden and they die during an off season you will be left with a bare yard.

Whenever you are trying to determine what types of plants to include in your landscaping project, you should always consider things like sunlight, wind direction and strength, and soil alkalinity. These factors will help narrow down your options so that you can choose plants that will thrive in your landscape.

Be mindful of the impact that your landscaping can have on your house. Any disregard for this can result in plants that affect piping underground, or even block the visibility of traffic near your home. It takes only seconds online to research the average growth size, or how the roots behave for your new plants and trees.

It can be very difficult to guess and plan how much mulch, sand, rock, etc. you might need in order to successfully finish your whole project. In part, you should make sure you do everything in phases. As far as planning the amounts of each of these materials, do your math and pay attention to specifications.

Consider the amount of sunlight that hits different areas on your property before deciding what to plant there. Some plants need full sunlight while others thrive in shade. If you plant the incorrect varieties in the wrong areas, you are setting yourself up for failure. Talk to a professional at your local nursery to determine which plants will do best in different lighting conditions.

Water is a great element to add to any design. Adding a water pump with a small fountain or waterfall is simple. If you could afford it, there’s a lot of professionals who could install these things for a cheap cost. Incorporating water features is a great way to establish a focal point.

Take a bit of time to research the right types of plants to use in your landscaping design. You can go to your local nursery or big-box home-improvement store and ask them questions about the plants they sell. Always keep in mind the growing requirements in your own yard when considering which plants to use.

Don’t be scared off by cheap prices! While splurging can sometimes be worthwhile, at other times, the cheapest materials are just as good as the pricey ones. Before paying extra, consider what you’ll be getting for your money, and if it’s worth the extra cost. It doesn’t always take a lot of money to get quality goods.

Carefully determine the quantities of material you will need. It can be very easy to under or overestimate how much of any given material you will need to get the job done. Before you get started, check you math. Get a second pair of eyes or even a professional to take a look at your materials list.

Landscape design software is an excellent tool for anyone who needs visual aids to get a true idea of what works best. These programs allow you to enter measurements and maps that reflect your working space. This allows you to plan the boundaries of flowerbeds, visualize spacing and choose the optimal layout for your project.
