Benefits of Pruning and Mulching

Pruning and mulching are the key to keeping a building’s landscape looking its best. Both landscape maintenance practices can help commercial buildings enhance the exterior of the property and maintain the health of the greenery.

Pruning is the trimming of trees, shrubs, and bushes to cut away dead or overgrown branches or stems. The process increases plant fruitfulness and growth, maintains plant shape, and controls disease and insects.

Failing to prune plants on a regular basis can cause insect infestation, fungus, and disease. Additionally, the overgrowth of greenery can cause the building to appear unmaintained. It’s especially important to prune trees, as broken branches can cause damage to the building and prove dangerous to those who pass by.

Mulching is the process of applying a layer of wood chips to soil surrounding trees, shrubs, bushes, and flowers. Mulch helps moderate soil temperature to help plants survive extreme weather. Additionally, mulch helps soil retain a proper amount of moisture, reduces weeds, and adds nutrients to the soil.
