San Jose Tree Care Requires More than Watering Cans and Fertilizer
Trees are a great addition to any property. They provide shade and they improve your home’s curb appeal; however, a lot of people expect trees to take care of themselves like they do in nature and just water them every now and then. Unfortunately, a tree on your lawn is going to need more help, especially if you want it to look its best. Here’s a few tips on tree care for San Jose residents. First, water the tree properly. Leaving it to a sprinkler system is not going to cut it since trees need a considerable amount. The correct way of making sure a tree gets the water it needs is to soak the ground around the tree. If it’s a newly planted tree, the roots haven’t developed yet so the soaking should be done near the trunk. For more developed trees, you’ll have to spread the water out more around the tree’s canopy.
