Superior Lawn Care offers a professional ornamental tree and shrub application program that concentrates on the beauty and health of these eye-catching additions.
Depending on your yard’s square footage and perimeter shape, as well as your home’s location on your property, ornamental trees and shrubs can add drama, color, and style to your yard. However, as your landscape evolves, your plants and vegetation will also grow and change each season, requiring regular maintenance. Each new season introduces threats, including disease, insects, and weather, that can damage or destroy your trees and shrubs.
