Why should I add mulch?
Mulch is very valuable for your trees and plants’ health because it insulates the soil, helping it to provide a buffer from heat and cold temperatures. Mulch also keeps weeds out to help prevent root competition. It also retains water, helping the roots stay moist and prevents the soil from compacting.
How to tell when it is time to give your tree a trim.

How to tell when it time to prune a bush?
Prune whenever you start to notice the center of the bush beginning to lose leaves or take on a twiggy appearance. This means the inner part of the plant is not receiving enough sunlight because the outer branches have taken over.
Is it really important to maintain your lawn?
Keeping your lawn maintained entails real deal labor. You generally don’t want to remove more than 30-40% of the plant tissue, but you still want to remove dead grass, leaves, and other debris. Lawn maintenance may also require topdressing soil or a deep raking to remove thatch in the fall seasons.
