Plant Health Care
Our Plant Health Care (PHC) Program is a holistic approach to landscape design and maintenance. Plants, when given the proper growing conditions
are less likely to develop disease and insect problems. While past methods relied on treating symptoms, PHC emphasizes plant health and preventive
treatments that are not only environmentally safer, but more effective and less costly in the long run.
Insect and Disease Control (part of PHC)
Our Plant Health Care program uses chemical spraying as only one of many alternative and somewhat as a last resort. We are trained and certified
in the use of spray materials and injections to keep insects and diseases under control. We use great care in balancing your desire for healthy
trees and shrubs with the need for environmental preservation and safety.
Includes pruning shrubs, cutting back perennials and groundcover, applying pre-emergent herbicides, edging and mulching beds, spring cleanups, etc.
The natural look of a brick or flagstone patio or walkway is the perfect way of linking your outdoor home to your indoor one.While increasing your
outdoor living space it also adds interest, accenting the appearance of your home. Retaining steps and walls can be useful in dealing with high
maintenance slopes or grade changes, or aesthetic by delineating areas in your yard or garden. With the installation of large rocks and boulders,
we can create a natural looking rock outcropping. This adds additional color and texture to add another dimension. With the addition of landscape
lighting, you can enjoy your landscape at night.
Tree Pruning, Removal, and Surgery
The importance of a healthy, mature tree to your landscape and overall real estate value should not be underestimated. Regular corrective aesthetic
pruning and proper disease diagnosis and treatment are essential to the health of a tree. Tree removal, when needed, is safe only when handled by
our fully qualified, insured professional climbers.
Bucket Truck Service
Our bucket trucks can reach a height of 55 feet. We use them for tree removal, as well as installing and repairing flagpoles, etc.
Seasoned, mixed hardwoods, cut to firewood lengths.
Diagnosis of Tree and Shrub Diseases
We are certified and licensed pesticide applicators. Through continuing educational seminars and conferences, we keep pace with the latest technology.
ConsultationGary has done arboricultural and horticultural consulting for over 20 years. The consulting includes a detailed description
of what needs to be done and a recommended treatment program. We also provide hazardous tree evaluations, tree valuation reports, and expert witness
testimony involving trees.
Deep root fertilization, using liquid fertilizers, vertical mulching, and tree injections.
Our turf program entails five applications. These include crabgrass control with fertilizer, broadleaf weed control, late summer fertilizer, grub
and lawn insect control, and a fall fertilizer.
Core Aeration of Lawns
Aeration removes thousands of soil cores from you lawn and drops them on top of the thatch layer. The cores are about a half inch in diameter and
2 to 3 inches long. Consider including power aeration in your annual lawn care program. It's a wise decision that will continue to pay you and your
lawn dividends long after the aerator is gone.
