Although stumps can be left in the ground after a tree is cut down, the decision to do so might be difficult in some situations. Stumps are not only unsightly and may obstruct future landscaping improvements, but they may also sprout new shoots and transmit root illnesses such as honey fungus. It’s typically more cost-effective to pay a little more for stump removal at the same time that the tree is destroyed. Stump removal is complicated by the fact that stumps are sometimes huge and heavy, necessitating the use of specialised equipment and procedures. Bulky Gardening has four stump grinders, two of which are tracked for projects that require access across rugged terrain, and our smaller grinder is ideal for difficult-to-reach stumps with restricted access.
Spring is an important time for getting on top of weeds before they take light and water from the plants you want. You can also mulch your borders in early spring, provided the soil is moist, and there is still space to get in between the plants. Prune hydrangeas in March. Look for a set of healthy strong buds and then cut the old flower heads back to just above them. For mature or congested plants you can also take out some of the older growth to encourage it to reshoot from the base.
Watering is required for tree maintenance and aftercare. Many plants will die if they are not watered or cared for properly. It is not suggested to plant on a grass sward, and grass should not be allowed to grow up to the tree (a 0.5m radius should be kept clear of all grass). In the spring, a slow-release fertiliser and/or mulch application will aid the growth of a new tree. You may be eager to get started on planting trees on your property, but consider if now is the best time to do so. Although there are exceptions, most trees and shrubs should be planted in the early spring or late fall. However, as previously said, there are exceptions to this rule, so you should contact with an expert about the tree you wish to plant. See more information on https://bulkygardening.ie/.
By October the garden can look a bit of a mess, collapsing perennials, dying leaves and debris. Autumn is the time to clear up on the garden and one decision is which plants to cut back? It is down to personal choice and how much time is available . I cut back those perennials with unsightly faded leaves, such as Delphinium, geraniums, hosta, but others with ornamental seed heads such as poppies, Allium, grasses are best left alone for now. Cut right back to ground level: Peonies, Leucanthemum, Nepeta (Cat Mint) Delphinium, Hardy Geraniums, Phlox. Slightly less hardy perennials such as Penstemons are best left with the top growth in place. It provides some winter protection and should not cut back until the spring to give some cover for the plant from the winter weather.
