Our business serves both residential and commercial customers in Texas. Though we don’t plant topiary’s, we do maintain the health of our customer’s saplings, hardwoods, softwoods, and shrubs and will gladly teach them the finer points of care for them. For example, there’s the right and wrong way to prune large oaks and shrubs. A branch that’s trimmed at the wrong angle might never again put forth leaves or blossoms and might even be subject to rot and disease because it doesn’t shed precipitation properly.
Dull shears can merely crush a branch and also make it vulnerable to disease. We at Round Rock Arbor Service always know to keep our instruments, be they by-pass loppers, chainsaws or grinders, in top shape.
What Plant To Grow Where
Even before construction, we can give our customers tips on just what types of shade topiaries are best for the Austin climate and the types of soil found on their property. Austin is in hardiness Zone 8 and has a humid, subtropical climate. This means that it has hot summers, mild winters and gets a lot of rain. This is excellent for a wide variety of trees, but not all of them! A larch would probably not do well Austin. Fruit producing canopies like apples and apricots need a period of winter dormancy and would find the climate difficult.
Winter is a difficult time for a tree. A dormant tree still needs to be protected (winterized) to remain healthy and free from diseases and insects. Bad news is, winter weather encourages destructive pests to snuggle in and wait for spring to revive their destructive lifecycles. Small investments in your time can pay off big come spring. According to Steve Nix of About.com. Citing from: Winterize Your Trees
Consider adding bark mulch around plant bases to reduce harsh Winter weather damage and reinforce soil insulation covering shallow roots and root balls. This is also the best time to prune dead or unwanted limbs and spray ends with pruning dressing to prevent the spread of disease.
Measuring from the soil surface, your mulch should be no more than 3-5 inches thick. Before applying a fresh layer in the spring, remove some or all of the mulch from the previous year and add it to your compost pile. Says Gardeners.com
Any tree or shrub, depending on the variety, may also have different soil requirements. Some trees and shrubs prefer acid soil. Some like their soil dry, while others prefer moist, loamy soil. Our professionals can also install a drip irrigation system to make sure they get the slow, thorough soaking that’s best for most trees.
