The world is a very strange place right now. So many businesses are closing, and people are staying in their homes as much as possible. In such a crisis, it is natural that many of our normal activities are disrupted. Even the things that you could take care of go to the wayside due to executive dysfunction caused by isolation and anxiety.
But, as different as it may be, life goes on. Your grass will continue to grow. Your shrubs and trees may need to be pruned. If you lost shrubs or trees to the winter months or age, you may need to replace them to maintain the balance of your lawn’s ecosystem. There are many things that need to be addressed in landscaping maintenance throughout the year, and they will still need to be done even though everything seems topsy turvy.
Here are some reasons you shouldn’t ignore your landscape maintenance during this time:
- Dead or dying shrubs in your landscape can disrupt the balance and harm other features of your lawn.
- Allowing shrubs and turf to grow unchecked invites pests such as insects, rodents, and small critters like racoons.
- Untrimmed shrubs grow too densely and invite disease which could not only kill the shrub, but also other elements of your lawn and garden.
- Untrimmed shrubs also flower or fruit less frequently.
It is important to remember that not just your own lawn needs this care. If you own a business that has been closed due to the coronavirus, you also need to consider your commercial landscaping needs. Check on your commercial property and make note of shrubs that need to be pruned and other issues that need to be addressed now instead of waiting until you reopen.
