Watermarke is a first-class residential community offering the finer things in life. This collection of luxurious condominiums is more like a private resort that you get to call home. Its stunning landscaped grounds and featured amenities allow its residents to live a life without compromise.
Watermarke hired Andre in 2015. The prior landscape provider had been over-pruning all the shrubs and vines in this heavily-wooded community, which caused the plants to dieback in the winter and not produce blooms in the Spring. The constant over-pruning was not only visually unappealing, but was unhealthy for the plants, impeding their proper growth and flowering.
Many trees at Watermarke were also struggling. The community was nearly 10 years old and the original tree stakes still remained on their trees, causing damage. In addition to this, a portion of their trees were planted too low, with trunk tapers buried underneath soil.
Because many of our maintenance teams are also certified arborists, they were able to recognize this problem by the leaf discoloration and stunted tree growth.
Remove all the original tree stakes. Remove soil at the base of affected trees to reveal correct amount of trunk taper for best health of tree. Allow shrubs and plants to produce new growth and flower and do natural pruning per species.
Watermarke’s urban forest is healthy again and on a 3-year arbor care plan to trim trees per species for best growth patterns and tree form. Star Jasmine and other plants are thriving because of correct pruning practices, with no winter dieback. Springtime brings a beautiful display of blooming flowers to this community with its fragrant effects. We are in complete accord with the laws of nature and horticultural excellence.
