Trees and plants are important parts of our nature and ecosystem. We can’t imagine life without these green trees and plants. Trees and plants are the main sources of oxygen on the earth that we need to breathe. Plants and trees also reduce emissions, air pollution, and temperature. They also provide food and shelter to wildlife animals, birds, and mammals. They regulate the rainwater cycle, absorb carbon dioxide, help fight soil erosion and make our environment beautiful.
There are thousands of varieties of trees and plants in our nature that we see in the forest and home garden. If your home has a space to plant trees and other plants, you should create a green and eco-friendly living space in your house. It will boost your mood, lifestyle, and natural cooling. You can choose small trees for small spaces and other types of plants and trees for large areas.
How can you encourage the growth of trees and plants?
After planting trees and plants in the garden or pots, the next step comes ‘how can you boost the growth of your plants?’ Following are the things that really matter in tree and plant growth.
After planting the tree and plants, apply the water according to its height and roots. You can apply water in small amounts in the first week. Once the plant’s roots tighten themselves in the soil, you can give more water and keep the root ball moist. Water every 4-5 days and also give water according to the weather in your area.
Trees and plants also need something extra than just water for good growth. It is called fertilizer and is not ‘food.’ Fertilizers can be organic natural or artificial substances containing chemical elements that encourage the productiveness and growth of plants. However, trees and plants can find their food from natural soil but still need nitrogen for growing quickly.
3. Mulch and Clean around the Plants
First remove the leaf, grass, and other weeds around the plant or tree. Now dig the soil but not deeper and stay away from the trunk. Either you can use composite soil or collect leaves, dry grass, chopped wood, and bark to create a mulch. It will supply nitrogen to the roots of trees and plants.
4. Pruning and Trimming of Bushes and Shrubs
When your tree and plants gain some height and width, now is the time to consider professional tree and bush removal services to remove broken or damaged bushes, limbs, and shrubs. Pruning and trimming will help to develop a strong structure, and new growth of branches, and also improves the overall appearance of the plants.
Plants and trees need sunlight as energy in order to grow and develop, bloom and produce seeds. Leaves of trees and plants act as solar panels that absorb sunlight and transfer the energy which further converts this into a chemical compound process, called photosynthesis.
So these are some ways to improve and encourage the growth of trees and plants in and around your home.
