    Frequently Asked Questions

    In general, the most ideal time to prune your trees is in the dormant season or just before bud break in early spring. This allows the tree proper recovery time before a growth flush.

    Yes, we accept most credit and debit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We would prefer check or cash, but whatever is most convenient for you is best.

    This is a tricky question we get often. Firstly, if the tree is at a semi-mature, to mature stage in life. Yard by Design will not reduce the height on any tree that age unless, it has previously been pollarded, or reduced in the past. With most fruit trees and trees that have been lowered at an adolescent age it is acceptable to maintain this practice as long as the tree is healthy. However, topping a tree is an unethical approach to maintaining trees, and we will have to recommend other solutions.

    Our woodchips are typically unloaded to any resident who is in need of mulch. We also allow certain local residents to pick up wood that has been processed during the course of the job, with the permission of the client. If you are interested in wood or woodchips. Please give us a call at (210) 638-8804.

    This depends on many factors. No job is the same and each one has its own variables. We base each job on factors such as: accessibility, material volume, risk factor, tree size, tree health, and time. We typically don’t charge a flat per hour rate, but we do estimate how long the job will take considering the above mentioned factors.

    This depends on several factors, but it really depends on your soil texture. You should water sandy soils with smaller quantities of water applied more frequently than with clay/silt soils and you can water silt/clay soils less frequently than sandy soils without leaching water.

    To determine “how much,” water your trees need you must determine tree diameter x five minutes = total watering time.

    A Certified Arborist has a broad base of knowledge about tree and woody plant care, pesticides, planting safety and related technical matters. In order to become a Certified Arborist in Texas, one must pass a difficult and lengthy exam administered by the Texas Arborists Association.

    There are as many choices of trees to plant as there are people and places to plant them. Depending on the look and feel of your outdoor home there are beautiful flowering exotic varieties, evergreens which keep their green all year, trees that provide fall color, trees that will grow very large that future generations may enjoy, dwarf varieties that grow small to beautify special places; the choices are many.

    Hazard assessment is one of the jobs of your arborist. As trees grow and age they become subject to many stress factors that may affect their structural integrity. It is important to have a certified arborist visit your outdoor home and advise you of any possible danger from tree failure.


    Here’s what our happy drivers had to say about our services:

    I want to send a BIG SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU, to Yard By Design! They were very professional. They did an amazing job with cutting back branches from my roof line. They clean up like they were not even there. While I was inside they stood up for me when neighbors was upset because they were cutting parts of the tree that crossed over to my property. If you have yard or tree work to be done PLEASE give them a call.
