DID YOU KNOW??
Trees and shrubs represent a considerable long-term investment in your landscape and with proper care can be enjoyed for decades. The care of each plant in a landscape can affect the health of every plant in that landscape.
The objective of Plant Health Care is to maintain or improve the landscape’s appearance and vitality, using the most cost effective and environmentally sensitive practices and treatments available.
Plant Health Care involves monitoring, using preventive treatments such as Deep Root Feeding, Evergreen Winter Protection, Growth Regulators or Organic Plant Fertilization and working closely with the homeowner or commercial property manager.
Every landscape is unique, so each Plant Health Care program is customized for the property. All programs consist of monitoring visits to detect and manage any problems with plant vitality, plant insects or plant diseases before they become serious.
Our Certified Landscape Professionals (CLP) can recommend treatments and changes in maintenance practices that can eliminate or minimize these problems while maximizing the potential of your landscape and protecting your landscape investment.
