Have you a back garden that you ignore for all but two of the sunnier afternoons of the year, only to venture out to sit amongst out of control bushes and overgrown weeds? If so, this article is just for you as you learn the benefits of looking after your back garden.
Trimming. Trees in the back garden need to be trimmed back in order for them to continue to grow and to be healthy. Even if you don’t want your tree to be larger, if it has dead branches still attached to it then the disease that killed those branches can easily spread through the rest of the tree can actually kill the tree and before long you don’t just have an overgrown tree in your garden, you have a dead tree, which is not only an eyesore but also extremely creepy to look out your living room windows at: not to be recommended.

Better Light. If you have trees near your windows that are badly overgrown then even if you don’t venture out into your back garden too often then there are very tangible benefits to looking after them and making sure you cut those branches back. With the branches and leaves removed you will have a lot more light coming into your living room or kitchen, making it a much more pleasant place to spend your time. And, of course, if you do like going outside then you’ll be able to see more of the nature that resides within those trees if they are carefully maintained.
Get Fruit From Your Trees. Got an apple or plumb tree in your back garden – or indeed any tree that could yield fruit? If you don’t look after that tree then the chances are that you’re not getting too much in the way of fruit from it, fruit which you can then take inside and consume either directly or in something like a pie. You will need to do a little bit of research into the best pruning methods for your particular type of tree – or hire a tree surgeon – but when you taste the fruit that you have grown yourself that fruit will be all the sweeter to you.
