Add a weeping willow to your landscape design

Blog Contributed by David West

Georgia is proud to call itself one of the most beautiful states in the country, so why not take advantage of the natural beauty outside of your business? Having an attractive exterior can draw attention to your business and attract new and returning clients! Adding naturally occurring Southern plants to your landscaping is a great way to enhance your landscape design. Great Estates likes to encourage planting Weeping Willow trees.

Weeping Willow trees have inspired the making of a variety of trees and shrubs with similar characteristics. Along with the variations of plants you can plant that look like Weeping Willows, you can choose the part of the plant that displays the downward sweeping motion that Weeping Willows are so famously known for. Weeping Willows are staples of the South and while they do take some maintenance, they are worth adding to your landscape design!

If you have planted a Weeping Willow, be sure to prune it. If you don’t have time – contact Great Estates, they can help with your landscape design! When pruning Weeping Willows pay special attention to pruning anything that has sprouted below the graft of the tree or bush. The sprouts have a tendency to overgrow and weaken the upper weeping part of the plant. Along with pruning, be sure that your Weeping Willow is planted in the area where your soil is the most damp; Weeping Willows thrive in moist soil.
