You might not associate tree lopping with less stress and labour, but it’s certainly true. Not only will you remove the task of raking up leaf litter, but you can also remove the access pests will get to your home. Plus, there’s finally room for the fun type of gardening.
- Less gutters to clean
Heavy winds, rain, and age will make leaves fall off the trees in your backyard en mass. Once a year, or God forbid twice, somebody needs to get up on the roof and clean out the gutters. This is all courtesy of the big backyard gumtree.
Gutters get clogged with leaf debris and will start to smell if they aren’t cleaned out. The same goes for your driveway gutters. Ordering an assessment and having your trees removed equals less manual labour for you through the year
- No more pests
Trees are happy homes to birds and the occasional koala. But some homeowners aren’t aware that long branches also make it easier for pests to get to your house. One of them is the possum.
Yes, possums are cute with their big eyes and soft fur. But they dig into roofs and make nests there. Possums normally live in the trees and higher-up areas to avoid predators. Inside a roof is the best place for them to be in terms of protection. But then you have to live through sleepless nights wondering if there is a poltergeist running around your roof making terrifying hissing noises.
- Gardening made better
Seed pods from trees are dangerous if they aren’t raked before lawn mowing. You don’t need an extra chore. There’s better types of gardening to do.
When the tree lopping is done, there’s suddenly more space for the fun types of gardening. You can make a veggie patch. Create large garden boxes full of flowers. Or you can create an outdoor living area where you can enjoy the sunshine instead of feeling cold in the shade from the tree.
