Household Tips – Landscape Maintenance

Trees Over RoofKeeping your landscape trimmed up has additional benefits beyond just the aesthetic appeal. Spring and summer are the times when we see the most growth in most plants & trees with the warmer weather. Here are a few notable spots to make sure you keep tidied up.

1. Trees – Two common spots to focus on are trees that overhang your roof and trees that overhang a sidewalk. Unkempt trees can damage a roof and lead to HOA violation letters if it encroaches a sidewalk.

2. Bushes should be kept trimmed up and several feet away from the side of your house to eliminate moisture & house contact that leads to ideal conditions for termites to thrive.

3. Create a clear buffer area around your landscaped yard to keep pack rats from creating nests.
