One of our most popular commercial landscaping services is ornamental tree care. A well-planned landscape has beautiful features below, at, and above eyelevel, and ornamental trees are a great way to build that dimension into your property. If you already have ornamental trees on your property, we’re well equipped to care for them throughout the year. If you’re looking to add ornamental trees, a few of our favorites are listed below. When you contact your local U.S. Lawns location, their commercial landscaping team can give you more specific advice about the kinds of ornamental trees that will thrive in your region.
1. Palm Trees
If you live in a warm subtropical region, or a dry desert region, palm trees could be a beautiful addition to your property. They come in all shapes and sizes, so there’s lots of room for choice and creativity.
While these trees are relatively low maintenance once they’ve matured, they have special care requirements in their early days — especially just after they’ve been planted. Our crews have years of experience planting and caring for palm trees during all stages of life to help them flourish, and can help get property managers and owner the best results for their investment.
2. Japanese Maples
Japanese maples generally thrive in cooler climates but can do well in warmer regions if they’re cared for properly. If you’re interested in adding these ornamental trees to your property, we can assess where and how to integrate them into your commercial landscape.
These trees are especially popular because their brightly-colored leaves liven up landscapes in the spring, summer, and fall. They require minimal pruning, and many property owners love that these trees stay beautiful though every season. They even come in a dwarf variety, so you can choose the size that would look best on your grounds.
3. Crape Myrtles
Especially popular in the South, these trees are beloved for their summer and fall flowers in shades of white, pink, red, and purple. Crape Myrtles allow property owners to incorporate color and dimension into their landscapes.
It’s important to carefully prune these trees in the spring and summer, and they should be planted in full sunlight to thrive. Regular pruning can beautify Crape Myrtles by directing growth energy to specific branches and can help them better withstand high winds and inclement weather.
Our commercial landscaping teams can ensure that Crape Myrtles (along with other ornamental trees) on your property stay healthy year-round. Our expert crews keep track of when to prune, soil health, and pest control so your ornamental trees can flourish. U.S. Lawns can even ensure that your irrigation system is in good working order to care for these trees!
