Who doesn’t enjoy the sight of lush trees lining their backyard? This Arbor Day, it’s time to give character to your home with some vibrant greenery. But before you break out the seedlings and trowels, consider these tips from our experts at ABC Seamless Siding, your trusted provider of reliable gutter covers.

Mind the Roots

Don’t underestimate how strong a tree’s roots can become. These roots grow slowly but they are powerful enough to bore through solid bedrock. If the roots reach your home’s foundation, you could be looking at a lot of potential problems. You can avoid future trouble by properly planning out where your trees will be planted. If possible, keep them at least 10 feet away from your foundation. Additionally, do not plant trees where they could disrupt your water main and sewer lines.

Trimming and Pruning

Your trees should not hang over your roof or gutters. In the fall, dead leaves will often accumulate inside the troughs, obstructing water flow and starting a domino effect of problems resulting from the improper flow handling.

One way to prevent this is to ensure your trees are regularly trimmed and pruned, particularly in the weeks preceding the fall season. This may not entirely stop leaves and debris from getting inside the gutters, but it can certainly minimize their impact.
