If you’ve got a large plot of land in Ferndale or anywhere else in western Washington, you may already be aware of some of the many benefits to having nice, big, healthy trees on your property. You may appreciate the open spaces of shady, lush lawn and landscaping that accompanies full-leaved trees in the summer. Sometimes, though, it can be hard to strike a balance between the open space you love and the solitude you want out of your backyard. Putting up a fence can take away from the look and feel of your big, open yard, but Whatcom Tree Service has the solution.

Trees and hedges are a popular way of marking the edges of your yard, allowing you to enjoy enhanced privacy without completely cutting your land off from the bordering properties. This approach can be very successful when the proper measures are taken. Of course, it takes patience for trees to grow into their full landscape effectiveness, but some trees and shrubs make better fencing options because they grow faster. Through proper tree care and maintenance, your trees, shrubs, and hedges can get there even quicker. For example, it is important to consider the spacing at which they are planted. If they’re planted too close together, they may have to compete for nutrients. Fertilization is another crucial task that must be carried out correctly.

Our Washington tree service can help you to select, plant, and maintain the perfect plants to tie your yard together. Contact Whatcom Tree Service today for a free quote, and learn what we can do for you and your Ferndale yard!
