Is it Time to Replace Your Shrubs? Cumming , GA
privacy trees

Did you know that there are certain features of your landscape that have a “shelf life”? Plants, for example, won’t last forever and they are not invincible – even with the best care and intentions. Like all living things, plants will eventually die. If you want to retain a beautiful and healthy landscape, however, you may need to remove and replace the plant before it takes its final breath.

Shrubs are a perfect example of a plant that may need replacement sooner than you think. Not sure when and if you need replace your shrubs? Here are five things to consider:

Have your shrubs outgrown the area?
While some shrubs can be reduced in size by routine pruning, you may find that your shrub has simply grown too big for the space it was originally planted in.

Are your shrubs under-performing?
Just like any tree or plant, you may need to remove it and start fresh if it is showing signs of disease or failure, such as discoloration, premature leaf drop, failure to bloom, declining in size, dead spots on leaves or twig death

Were your shrubs planted in the wrong location?
While a lot of shrub issues can be blamed on disease and pest issues, sometimes the problem is that it was poorly installed from the beginning. Certain shrubs need certain amounts of shade, sun and moisture to thrive. Neglecting these components can cause them to fail prematurely or not grow at all.

Have Your Shrubs Been Damaged
It is not uncommon to see shrubs that have been injured, especially if they are near a driveway, pool or basketball goal. While some shrubs can redeem themselves after injury, others need to be removed and replaced.

Are you tired of your shrubs?
It’s okay to be ready for a change in your landscape design and appearance. This can involve the removal of shrubs and installation of new plants or hardscape features on your property. Simple changes like removing your shrubs can make a profound impact on the aesthetics of your yard.

Still not sure if you want or need to replace your current shrubs? We can help at Everlast Lawns and Landscapes. In fact, that is what we specialize in. Call today to schedule a consult with our lawn care experts.

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.
