Tree and Shrub Planting


Our Modesto Tree and Shrub Planting Service

Trees and shrubs form an essential element of your Modesto Ca landscape – adding structure, texture and color as well as helping establish focal points in gardens, but trees are not just about beauty; they may function as energy savers, air conditioners, wildlife havens and can increase the value of your home.

Shrubs and trees such as fruit, flowering, shade trees, evergreens, deciduous vines and shrubs are not only attractive, but they also add tremendous value to your property. The value of well landscaped homes with healthy, well-formed trees and shrubs can be as much as 10% to 20% percent higher compared to homes with little or no landscaping.

Strategically placed trees can provide shade to your house during the hot summer months, helping reduce the cost of cooling your home. Trees and shrubs can also help block the cold winter winds, potentially reducing your energy needs.

Trees and shrubs provide a steady supply of fresh air that is full of oxygen to your home and provide green, relaxing spaces to live and enjoy. They improve air quality by filtering dust and other pollutants to support the health and well-being of the people living there. In addition, trees, shrubs and other plants in your garden reduce the amount of storm water runoff – which, in turn, minimizes erosion and the effects of flooding.

Why Hire a Professional for Shrub and Tree Planting?

Planting new trees, shrubs and vines is not a difficult job, but it does require knowing some knowledge to get it right. A number of important considerations, such as soil conditions, lot size, location, shrub and tree species, root health, weather and aftercare must be taken into account in order to give your plants the best start in life and achieve the most attractive look for your landscape.

A well-planned yard with healthy, beautiful trees and shrubs that are well-cared-for can add considerable value to your property. On the other hand, improperly planted trees and shrubs can be a significant liability. By planting trees, shrubs and vines at improper depths or failure to prepare them properly to enter the ground could lead to extreme damage or even death. If this happens, you could easily lose the initial investment cost of the trees or shrubs as well having to pay more money for the removal of the damaged trees, replacement and re-planting, and not to mention the time investment lost through this unfortunate process.

Tree planting requires knowledge and experience. Trees and shrubs can be container-grown, bare-root, or balled and burlapped. All of them can work in your landscape, but each has different requirements, so you need to know and understand the different needs of each shrub or tree species in order to get the plants off to a great start in your landscape.

The Benefits of Our Expert Tree and Shrub Planting Service

Aguiar’s Landscaping has the knowledge and experience to handle your tree planting and tree care needs. We can help you with all aspects of your project, including: evaluating the soil type, access to light sources and other environmental factors, choosing the right types of trees and shrubs to conform to your property’s size and needs, determining the best placement for your trees, and the best tree care and maintenance.

Don’t attempt to undertake shrubs and tree planting by yourself as there are too many things that could go wrong if you don’t fully understand the tree or shrub’s requirements to grow healthy and efficiently. For example, both balled and burlapped trees lose a significant portion of their root system when dug at the nursery during the transplanting process and you must have the knowledge and expertise in proper site preparation and careful handling of seedlings to prevent further root damage and ensure the young trees grow to full maturity.
