Buying a home that you can raise your family in may end up being one of the best and most memorable experiences in your life. Going from a rental to a place that you own is huge because you can make so many changes without having to worry about lost value or landlord rules. This also means that you will want to do everything you can to create a family-friendly home.
While it is possible to work on small landscape projects regarding the grass, shrubs and flowers by yourself, you may not feel confident enough to work on something as major as trees. It is worth investing in tree service early on so that you can prepare the yard for your family to use.
Take Care of Shallow Root Trees
When scouting your landscape, pay attention to trees with shallow roots. These trees should become a top priority if they are located close to your home. That's because your children, pets and even adults that spend time outside could get injured by them. Ideally, you want to keep your children from tripping on the shallow roots while playing in the yard.
However, if these trees are located at the back of your yard, you may not need to worry about them. This is because these roots may not be anywhere close to where your children will end up playing.
Get Rid of Leftover Stumps
The previous owners may have removed a tree or two but did not grind down the stumps. While grinding stumps has clear benefits, such as improving looks and avoiding pests, the old owners may not have deemed it important enough to handle on their own.
While it will not be as easy for your children to get injured by a tree stump when compared to shallow roots, you can only benefit from removing this eyesore and potential hazard in your new yard.
Trim Overgrown Trees
It is important to take care of all the overgrown trees before letting your children play outside. For instance, you may have some trees with branches that could break at any time. You do not want this to happen when anyone in your family might be spending time outside. Also, this service will show you what the trees in your yard should look like when they are properly trimmed.
Another situation in which you may want to consider trimming is if you have branches hanging over into your neighbor's yard. You have an obligation to prevent your trees from causing damage to your neighbor's property. For instance, overhanging branches could damage a fence if one of the branches were to snap and fall.
Learn About Your Landscape
While you may have looked at the photos extensively and went on a thorough tour before putting an offer on the home, you may not know what kind of tree debris will be in the backyard. By getting tree service, you can ask all sorts of questions about what to expect for debris.
If you find out that one of your trees will drop spiked round balls, you may want to have it removed. It may not be worth the cleanup effort and risk of harming your children or pets. You will also be able to learn about what you can expect and what you need to do for seasonal care.
Getting tree service when you first move into your home is a smart idea because you can learn about the trees on your land and prepare the yard for your children to enjoy. If you want to schedule an appointment or have any questions, contact us at A Advanced Tree Service Of Brevard.
