We have been experiencing some pretty severe weather here in Ireland, over the past few years and it has certainly taken its toll on many of our trees.
We need to maintain trees well, keeping them in good condition, protecting them from storm damage. But in severe conditions they may still be affected. Storm damage to trees can be very dangerous and it is essential to properly assess and deal with the damage immediately.
Planting new trees, shrubs and flowers is the obvious way to improve the appearance of your garden. The addition of mulch can make your planting look more attractive and finished but there are other benefits to the use of mulch. But what kind of mulch should you use and how does it compare to other options such as stone. Here we look at the positives and negatives of using both mulch and rock around trees and in your flower beds.
There are many considerations to be made in the healthy maintenance of a tree and it can be hard to see where to begin. However, the health of your trees can be much improved very easily, especially while a tree is still young.
