There are plenty of things to consider when you’re landscaping your lawn. You want to do everything you can to make sure your lawn is cohesive and healthy. As you start planning your landscaping project, there’s a chance that you’ll be able to work around your existing trees and shrubs. But that’s not always the case, especially when trees are unhealthy or growing in a location that may encroach on your walkway or home.


At Vital Tree in Minnesota, we can help you make your lawn healthier and more attractive. In this post, we’ve put together a short guide to tree trimming and removal for landscaping. Check out our advice and then give us a call to schedule your tree removal service

Reasons to Remove Trees

Ideally, most homeowners would choose to keep a healthy tree around forever. But the unfortunate truth is that not all trees can be maintained with a new landscaping plan. Sometimes, they’ve become unhealthy due to years of disease and age. When trees become overgrown, tree trimming may not always be enough to remedy the problem. Often, homeowners will have these large trees removed rather than plan the new landscaping project around them.

Tree Stump Removal

After a tree has been removed from your lawn, you’ll need to make sure your lawn is ready before you bring in a landscaping team or start your own landscaping process. If you’re left with a stump, you don’t have to look for creative ways to integrate it into your landscaping. We offer affordable stump grinding service to remove those stumps completely. After we remove the stump and roots, you’ll be left with a lovely blank canvas to work with so you can design the beautiful lawn you’ve been dreaming of.

Planning Your Landscaping Project

Once we’ve removed any necessary trees and stumps, you’ll be free to start thinking about your landscaping project. Here are a few tips to consider:


●        Think about sun exposure and choose plants accordingly.

●        Use plants, shrubs, and trees as barriers.

●        Consider future growth.

●        Research plants to attract wildlife like birds and butterflies.

●        Use sustainable resources in your landscaping project.
