Your plants are focal points on your property in Nebraska, so you'll want to keep them healthy and looking great. Fortunately, that's where trimming and pruning come in! While these two services may sound the same, there is a difference between them. Trimming involves cutting back overgrowth and stray branches to enhance their shape and aesthetic, and pruning benefits their health by removing damaged, dead, diseased, or insect-infested parts to prevent the issue from spreading. Hiring pros is the best way to ensure these tasks are done right, as they know how and when to perform them without causing damage to your plants.

Trimming Is for the Aesthetics of Your Plants

Trimming is primarily for the aesthetics of your plants, as it involves cutting back overgrown foliage and stray branches to keep them neat and manicured. It'll boost their curb appeal by enhancing their shape and giving them that pristine, well-maintained touch. Not only that, but trimming will also allow more sunlight to filter through and reach other parts of your plants, plus it improves air circulation throughout, which are both resources they need. This task can be done anytime they start looking messy and unruly.

Pruning Benefits the Health of Your Plants

Pruning benefits the health of your plants, as it involves removing damaged, dead, diseased, or insect-infested parts to prevent the issue from spreading to other areas. It also frees up space, nutrients, and resources, which would otherwise be wasted on the weak areas. As a result, it allows your plants to focus on new, healthier growth.

However, while pruning is highly beneficial for your plants, it should only be done when they can tolerate it to avoid causing more harm than good. After all, it's more invasive and involves making cuts, so doing it right and at the proper time is crucial for ensuring they can heal and become healthier.

Plant cutbacks are typically done in November, which is a form of deep pruning that sets them up for healthy growth come spring.

Always hire professionals to trim and prune your plants to ensure it's done right.

While trimming and pruning may sound straightforward, it's possible to do it wrong and harm your plants. Because of this, you should always hire professionals to perform these essential maintenance tasks. Pros will follow proper techniques when trimming and pruning, plus use the right equipment. They also have extensive training and knowledge of the different plants in the area, so they'll know what they need and when they need it. Similarly, they'll only prune them when it's right for your specific vegetation to avoid putting unnecessary stress on them. When your plants are in the hands of experts, you can trust that they'll receive nothing less than the best care, and it'll be done right.
