Most landscape contractors provide a variety of services and do work for residential and commercial clients. Here at E-Landscape, we've chosen to focus on providing commercial-only landscape design, installation, and maintenance services. One of the questions we frequently get is "what is the difference between a regular landscape contractor and commercial landscape contractor?" We thought we'd provide the answer right here on our blog!
Now that Spring has arrived, we're enjoying the site and scent of Korean spice viburnum (Viburnum carlesii). A deciduous shrub, Korean spice viburnum grows to between 4 and 6 feet tall, and just as wide. The show begins in early spring, when the plant begins to reveal pink buds. Once bloomed, the plant features bunches of white flower buds which are notable for their strong fragrance. Later, in summer, the plant develops red berries which mature to a darker brownish hue in fall just as the leaves turn to their red (and later purple) fall color.
With the unseasonably warm temperature we've experienced this Winter and Spring in the Mid-Altantic region, we've been getting lots of calls from clients trying to identify the weeds that are popping up on their property. There are several weeds that are common to this area that we see often on clients' properties. They include:

Winter is an excellent time for pruning and evaluating potential hazards in deciduous trees as the absence of leaves reveals the plant's branching structure. It is also easier to spot previous storm damage, such as broken branches, which may fall in more winds or heavy snow. Similarly, exposure to plant pathogens and fungal diseases is much lower during the winter months, which is beneficial as pruning most typically involves exposing live tissue which can create an entry point for disease.
