Do Your Trees Need More Attention? Cumming , GA
privacy trees

Compared to your grass or your flower beds, your trees may seem like the most independent and low-maintenance part of your landscape. However, both young and old trees need some attention and care to stay healthy. Keep in mind that when a tree dies and goes unnoticed, it can be a safety and liability threat to your family, friends and neighbors. Dead or dying trees are the first to go down during a big storm or strong wind.

The Benefits of Trees

We also want to keep our trees in good shape for their aesthetic benefit. These bold pops of color add depth and attraction to your overall landscape. Your trees provide welcome shade for your yard and a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife. Last not but not least, trees reduce noise and air pollution and create oxygen through the absorption of carbon dioxide. Don’t dismiss the importance of caring for your trees – even if they seem like they do just fine on their own.

Tree Care 101

While it is true that trees don’t require a rigorous maintenance schedule, they do need regular inspection and pruning. Trees may need your help to revive if they have been damaged by weather, insects or disease.

Young Trees (under 5 years): As you would expect, saplings (or young trees) need more care than older trees. This includes planting them in the right place and at the correct depth into the ground. You’ll need to mulch around your tree for moisture retention and protection, but don’t apply your mulch right up against the tree trunk. A heavy watering schedule is also important to foster a healthy and growing young tree.

Older Trees (over 5 years): After about five years, you can trust that your trees have established a strong root system and are less needy. From this point on, you need to inspect your tree regularly as well as prune it as needed. This includes removing dead, broken or crossed branches. In general, aim to keep two-thirds of the living branches on your trees while pruning.

For more information on how to care for your commercial or residential trees, please call Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. We can handle all parts of your landscape, from your smallest flower to your largest tree and everything in between.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
