Even though Houstonians are still enjoying cooler spring weather, the reality is that Houston's hot temperatures and humid conditions will be here soon, and with that comes the increased difficulty of maintaining residential lawns and landscape gardens. In addition to the heat and humidity, property owners must also battle many kinds of invasive weeds that can easily overrun gardens and lawns, and ruin the health and appearance of a property. Rather than attempt weed control in their gardens and lawns, property owners can make a smart investment by hiring the Landscape Professionals of Embark Services to handle Bed and Border Weed Control Services.
In the Houston area, there are hundreds of basic tree workers willing to perform tree services for a quick dollar. However, hiring these amateur and untrained workers can put tree health in serious jeopardy and can even put owners at risk because of their unsafe practices and possible liability issues. What can property owners do if they need tree work performed but want to avoid unsafe amateur tree workers? The answer is simple: hire a Certified Arborist to care for the trees on your residential or commercial property.
The phrase "fully insured and bonded" is used quite often in the landscape and tree care industry, but many homeowners, Homeowner Associations, and commercial property owners are often unaware of what the phrase actually means. It is important for property owners to be educated consumers and learn the importance of this phrase, as well as why they should avoid companies that are not fully insured and bonded.
When property owners need the services of landscape or tree care contractors, there is often some research that must be done before utilizing their services. In addition to price, many homeowners might also need to know if a landscaper just handles lawn maintenance, or if they also perform mulching or weed control. A commercial or industrial property owner might inquire about irrigation installation and maintenance, or need seasonal color planting throughout the year.
Homeowners Associations are tasked with enforcing neighborhood deed restrictions, protecting property values and maintaining the beauty of the community for residents. In order to help maintain the beauty and health of grass, trees and landscape gardens in community entrances and shared common areas, HOAs hire tree and landscape maintenance crews on a contract basis for their services. Unfortunately, many of the tree and landscape crews hired to maintain Houston area communities actually put HOA groups at risk because of their substandard work, unsafe practices, and lack of proper liability and insurance coverage.
Each year in Houston there are always several weather conditions that can leave area trees damaged and in need of repairs. For example, this winter Houston experienced two waves of icy winter weather, leaving heavy condensation on tree branches that led to breaks and fallen limbs. Heavy rains, lightning or strong winds can negatively impact area trees to such an extent that tree owners need tree care services to help with tree trimming and debris removal.
When spring arrives in Houston, many homeowners and commercial property managers resume regular lawn and landscape maintenance. This will often include restarting irrigation systems that were turned off during the colder winter months. However, some property owners discover that their irrigation system or sprinkler heads no longer functioning properly, so prompt maintenance and repair is critical to ensure lawns get the water they need in the spring growing season.
As trees grow and mature, their delicate root system will expand outward from the tree, just like the limbs and branches. Although tree roots typically expand underground, they are not buried far below ground but instead stay much closer to the surface of the soil. Unfortunately for tree owners, some tree roots begin to appear above the soil surface, making the enjoyment and maintenance of a landscape much more difficult. Tree owners facing this situation need to take immediate action to ensure the health, longevity and stability of their valuable trees for years to come.
Houston is currently enjoying a robust and vibrant economy, with new developments and construction projects starting each week. As a result, many residential and commercial properties are under construction, often with healthy and mature shade trees nearby. Although many property owners now prefer to keep established trees on the property whenever possible, the sad truth is that construction projects can often lead to tree damage or tree death because of inadequate tree protection.
As Houstonians begin to enjoy the warmer spring weather, many homeowners are getting the opportunity to examine the health and condition of their lawns, landscape gardens and trees up close. Property owners are discovering problems such as invasive weeds throughout their lawn and garden, patches of dead grass, broken tree limbs, or even insects or strange discolorations on their tree leaves. As a result, many area homeowners are asking themselves, "What's wrong with my yard?"
