Shrub Care

Shrub care performed by a professional will help your property exude a vivacious, colorful, well-kept appearance. Your arborist can help you maintain an attractive landscape with a properly timed shrub care plan that addresses your aesthetic, health, winter protection, and specialty needs. Shrub care experts are available to help you achieve your vision with pruning, fertilization, treatments for insects and shrub diseases, and antidessicant services designed specifically with your landscape conditions and personal preferences in mind.

Shrub Care Benefits

Identifying ShruberyAn arborist with shrub care expertise can enhance the beauty of your plantings and maximize the visual impact of flowering shrubs in spring and summer, colorful foliage during autumn and the contrast of uniquely textured bark and vibrant evergreen berries against the pale backdrop of winter. If you have neglected your shrubs for a period of time, expert shrub care will help rejuvenate your plants and provide the visual effect of a dramatic landscape "makeover."

Fertilizing with shrub fertilizer that is specially blended to enhance the health and vigor of woody plants will help them stay beautiful and fend off infestation from opportunistic insects and diseases that take hold of plants when they are weak. ArborHealth™ is a shrub fertilizer that replenishes essential nutrients and provides the nourishment needed to sustain health throughout the season.

Professional shrub pruning to provide shape, remove dead limbs and trim damaged branches will give your plantings a distinct form and clean appearance that naturally compliments the architecture of your home and adds character to the design of your landscape. In addition to preserving beauty, pruning by shrub care professionals will help prevent damage and breakage.

Shrub Care Winterization with Antidessicant

Topiary Shrub LandscapingShrub care in preparation of winter is just as important as in-season maintenance, especially for new plantings. Exposure to extreme temperatures, strong winds, heavy snow and ice storms can have a significant negative effect on your shrubs. Creating shelters or wind screens for deciduous flowering shrubs and susceptible evergreens is a very effective, but unsightly, form of protection from moisture depleting weather conditions. If you are interested in a fall and winter shrub care plan that offers protection without the eyesore, ask your arborist about antidessicant.

Shrub care winterization with antidessicant will help defend your trees against the drying effects of winter. ArborGuard®, a SavATree exclusive, is a natural polymer antidessicant that helps plants such as azalea, boxwood, rhododendron, holly and laurels to retain moisture during the winter months. It also helps prevent sunscald and windburn.
