Whether you own or rent a home, you should do everything that you can to protect the entire structure. Being a homeowner allows you to invest in work on the property without having to contact your landlord and hope that they are willing to take care of the work that is needed.
The driveway is a crucial part to protect because replacing it is more time-consuming and costly than resurfacing or not doing any work at all. If you invest in preventive measures, you will not have to worry about spending money on the driveway aside from occasional pressure washing. To accomplish this goal, you will want to hire a tree service company to work on the front yard.
Get Rid of Damaging Trees
The first thing that you should consider is removing all the damaging trees. If you have trees with berries that stain your driveway, you may have a tough time keeping the surface clean. As long as the trees are in your front yard, this problem will not go away. The two solutions include having a tree service company remove them or transplant them to somewhere in the backyard.
Another complication that you can run into with trees is roots invading the driveway. Roots can break the concrete over time, which is a guaranteed way to end up with repair costs. Hoping that the problem will fix itself will only lead to the driveway becoming more damaged. You should prioritize removal of these trees and the ones with roots that will eventually reach the driveway.
Plant New Trees
If you end up removing several trees in your front yard, you may want to replace them. Although you may initially be concerned about the new trees causing problems with the driveway, working with tree service professionals will lead to picking the right ones for the location. You can grow ones that do not have invasive roots with minimal droppings so that cleanup is not an issue.
Some trees may pose a danger to the driveway as well as the vehicles that are parked there when the branches are overgrown and extending over the concrete. You do not want any branches breaking off when there is a strong gust of wind because they can scratch or dent your cars. A rough impact with the concrete could lead to scratches that reduce the driveway's attractiveness.
Getting tree service like Smitty's Tree Service Inc will help give you peace of mind about protecting your driveway.
