Shrubs and Tree Care – Adding Beauty To Your Landscape

Trees and shrubs are woody plants that form part of a landscape. They are generally taller than herbs, but may vary in size depending on their species. Trees have long, single trunks with many branches extending from the top; while shrubs typically have multiple stems or branches that grow near the ground. These two types of plant life provide structure and stability to any landscape, and are essential for the health of an ecosystem.

Some examples of trees include oak, maple, fir, beech, birch and cypress trees. Oak is a large deciduous tree from the northern hemisphere with dark green leaves that turn red-brown in fall. 

Maple is another common deciduous tree found in North America with bright red or yellow leaves in the fall. Fir trees are cone-bearing evergreens found in the northern hemisphere with needles that are short and soft. Beech trees are shade tolerant deciduous trees that have smooth gray bark and oval shaped leaves. Birch trees are a type of hardwood tree with white or silver bark and small round leaves. Cypress is an evergreen coniferous tree with dense foliage, needle like leaves, and round cones. These are just a few of the many types of trees found in nature.

When planting any type of tree, it is important to consider the size that the tree will reach when mature as well as its required maintenance needs. Trees can be beneficial in reducing air pollution and providing shade from sunlight, but they can also be a nuisance if not properly cared for. It is important to research and select the right tree for your needs before planting. 

Shrubs are woody plants, usually with multiple stems and limited height. They are commonly found in gardens throughout the world and are used to create a more naturalistic look to outdoor spaces. Shrubs vary in size from small ground covers such as junipers, to large trees like oaks. These plants can provide year-round color, foliage, and even flowers, when properly maintained.

When it comes to lawn care, controlling shrubs is important in order to maintain a healthy and attractive landscape. Bermuda grass is particularly difficult to control because its wide-spreading growth can easily overtake the other plants within your garden or lawn.

Some common examples of shrubs include azaleas, rosebushes, boxwood, holly, and barberry.

If you’re looking to incorporate shrubs into your landscape, Bermuda grass control is key. Because Bermuda grass spreads via rhizomes (underground stems), it can quickly overtake a garden or lawn and smother other plants. To prevent this, make sure to keep your lawn mowed regularly and spot-treat any areas of Bermuda grass with an herbicide. By keeping your Bermuda grass under control, you can ensure that your shrubs will have plenty of room to grow and thrive! 

Best Root Fertilization For Trees And Shrubs

Trees and shrubs require specific feeds to ensure they are getting the correct nutrition. Depending on your climate, soil condition, and type of tree or shrub you’re caring for, there may be some variation in what is best for each individual species.

Root fertilization is an important aspect of shrub tree care. It involves applying fertilizer directly to the roots, allowing for quicker absorption and utilization of nutrients by the plant. This method is especially beneficial for older trees and shrubs with established root systems.

Watering Your Trees & Shrubs

Watering is an important part of protecting your trees and shrubs. Trees and shrubs need at least 1 to 2 inches of water per week, depending on the season. During summer months, you should increase watering to ensure that the soil remains moist.

To ensure proper hydration, it’s a good idea to set up a drip irrigation system or a soaker hose to disperse the water slowly and evenly. This will ensure that your plants are getting enough moisture, without having to worry about over-watering, which can lead to root rot or other problems.


Trees and shrubs can quickly become overgrown, leading to poor air circulation and an increase in pest infestations. By regularly pruning your trees and shrubs, you can ensure that they are healthy and look great year after year. Furthermore, proper pruning is essential for controlling the spread of invasive species like Bermuda grass.

Bermuda grass is an aggressive weed that can easily choke out native plants and ruin the look of your yard. To prevent its spread, it’s important to prune away any parts of the tree or shrub that have become infested with Bermuda grass. This includes cutting away dead branches and removing clusters of leaves that are harboring the weed. You can then dispose of the infested material far away from your yard to ensure that it doesn’t spread further.

In addition, pruning helps your trees and shrubs by allowing them to receive more sunlight. Sunlight is essential for photosynthesis and proper growth, so it’s important to trim back any branches or foliage that is blocking out the sun. Pruning also promotes better air circulation, allowing your trees and shrubs to take in more oxygen and reducing the risk of pests and disease.

Common Disease And Insect On Shrubs

One common disease that affects tree and shrubs is powdery mildew. This fungal disease appears as a white, powdery substance on the surface of leaves. The disease spreads rapidly and can spread quickly to other plants if not treated immediately. To prevent or reduce this disease, make sure that shrubs have adequate air circulation between them to help protect from humidity. Additionally, provide enough water for your shrubs during dry periods as drought can also contribute to powdery mildew.

Another common problem for shrubs is insect pests. Aphids, scale insects and mites are all common problems on shrubs. These pests can weaken the plant by sucking sap from the leaves and stems. They can also spread disease to other plants in your garden. To prevent or reduce these pests, use natural methods such as releasing beneficial insects like ladybugs or lacewings into the garden to help control destructive ones.

Finally, a common disease that affects shrubs is leaf spot. This disease appears as small, circular spots on upper surfaces of leaves. Leaf spot can cause premature defoliation and weaken the plant if left untreated. To prevent or reduce leaf spot, provide adequate air circulation around shrubs and avoid overcrowding when planting. Additionally, be sure to prune and dispose of any infected leaves or stems as soon as possible.
