Spring, summer and early fall are a great time to live in Chicago suburbs and Nw indiana. The cold, dark days of winter become a distant memory as the temperature climbs into and stays the 50s or 60s and trees begin to sprout leaves, seemingly overnight. This is when the landscape maintenance begins… Shrubs will need pruning or trimming. Maybe your flower bed or vegetable patch needs dead leaves removed or the soil prepared for planting. And then there’s your lawn… as the grass starts to grow again, it’ll need to be mowed, maybe twice a week, edged and weeded…

Let Watts Landscaping take care of all your lawn and landscape maintenance this summer. Instead of trying to find the time to do a multitude of outdoor tasks, you can enjoy the precious warm months with family or get back to building your business, knowing that Watts Landscaping is tending to your Chicago property in a proficient and timely manner.

Tree Service

Your property and your home is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime. For this reason and many more we know how important the maintenance and care of your trees truly are. For example, a weak limb on a tree near your house runs the risk of breaking, causing significant damage and potential injury to your family. A diseased tree can easily spread the infection to other plants and trees in your yard. With our years worth of experience, Watts Landscaping is experienced and qualified to remedy any situation which may occur on or around your Chicago property. A small example of the most common type of work we do is:

  • Tree Pruning:

    Proper pruning can eliminate many hazardous situations and also promote healthy growth in the life of a tree. Many species require only minimal pruning over the course of their lifetime while others require specific and careful manicuring to be full and healthy. A professional tree care service such as the specialists at Watts Landscaping will be able to assess and correctly prune your trees to keep them happy and your areas safe.
  • Pathogen control:

    Your trees attract thousands of insect species and disease organisms, the majority of which are no cause for concern. At Watts Landscaping, it is our job to know the difference between these and the insects and diseases which can severely damage or even kill your trees. Early detection, identification, diagnosis and a treatment plan by a qualified Chicago tree service is essential in maintaining the health and well-being of your green space.
  • Removal:

    Having a dead or dying tree in your yard can be a significant hazard to people, vehicles and homes nearby. Dry dead trees can also be a fire hazard and spread disease and harm to the other plants in the area. For these reasons and more, it is important to have these trees removed safely and promptly. At Watts Landscaping, we work efficiently and cost effectively to remove dead trees in the community of Chicago and leave your yard to continue to flourish for years to come.

Shrub Trimming

Shrub trimming or pruning is extremely important for the shrubs found at your property. When maintained and pruned regularly, shrubs can display their proper character, size and shape. Shrub trimming also allows for the shrub to reach its optimal flowering and health potential. Please know that our experienced pruning crews at Watts Landscaping will make each cut with the plant's health in mind.

When trimming or pruning shrubs, there are several types of pruning practices worth examining:

Renewal trimming

One of the most common approaches to maintain beautiful and healthy shrubs involves the trimming and removal of approximately one-fourth of the matures stems near the shrub's base. By thinning the base, we allow the shrub to keep its shape and character while allowing additional sunlight to reach the base area. Like all other plants, most shrubs require sunlight to produce healthy foliage and growth.

Selective trimming

Shrubs in your landscape have a natural size and shape that can be preserved through selective trimming and pruning. Precise cuts can be made near the branch collars which utilizes their inherit protective tissues. Selective trimming can also be used to achieve certain aesthetics or to remove any dead, dying or diseased branches.

Shearing

Unfortunately, shearing has become more common especially in the commercial landscaping industry. Instead of removing the oldest branches, those dying of disease and decay, or a possibly a crowded area near the base of the shrub, shearing controls height surrounding the shrub but also causes the death of healthy limbs and shoots.

In conclusion, using the correct shrub trimming and pruning techniques will improve the overall health, vigor and appearance of your shrubs. We have several Certified Arborist's on staff who are happy to speak with you regarding any questions that you many have regarding shrub pruning.
