Zimmerman Tree Service provides the full range of services to keep your lawn and ornamental plants in top health and looking great, including everything from landscape design and installation to year round maintenance.

Trees and ornamentals don’t always fare well in areas where heavily managed turf is present, such as sports fields, golf courses, and institutional environments. This is generally a result of our man-made landscapes. In nature, grasses and trees do not generally grow in the same areas. Trees block grass from sunlight; turf and tree roots compete for moisture and nutrients. In urban environments, the plant that was established first generally fares better. It should be a goal to keep both turf and trees healthy, as stressed plants are more prone to the feeding of sucking insects, such as aphids and whiteflies, and pathogen development, such as trunk and root rots.

In other words, to have a healthy, man-made landscape it helps to know what you are doing. Correct care of your lawn and ornamentals is a science.

Proper Irrigation

Proper irrigation of your lawn and ornamentals depends on a variety of factors. Where grass is a priority, the irrigation schedule is generally set to meet the needs of your grass, which may be a number of times per week.

Established trees and ornamentals in South Florida get enough water naturally and do not need additional watering. Installed trees and ornamentals may need supplemental irrigation until they are established, with smaller plants requiring less time to become established.
