1. How It Works

We’ll Increase Your Face Value

Your landscape represents quite an investment. Unfortunately, you may end up paying for it again and again if you never protect your plants with ongoing care.

With the Tree and Shrub Care Program, you’ll secure your landscape investment, and add to the value of your home with stronger, healthier, more beautiful trees and shrubs that you’ll appreciate for years to come.

Getting to the Root of Your Problem

Each of our applications serves a very important and timely function. From fertilization that spreads essential nutrients throughout the plant, to pest controls that discourage deadly diseases and insects – often before they occur.

With our program, you’ll also receive the special care and attention of your own personal Landscape Consultant. A professional who knows your landscape and its special needs, and will even tke the time to answer your questions, or point out a problem. Something you won’t find with other tree and shrub companies.

You’ll See Fewer Invisible Pests

The trouble with many insects is that you can’t always see them – except for their damage. And by then it may be too late.

Every Landscape Consultant is highly trained to recognize potential and existing pest problems. Although some feeding insects are not damaging to healthy plants, your Landscape Consultant will work to control harmful pests.

Your Landscape Consultant can also help identify diseases that aren’t always easy to spot. Diseases that would otherwise damage the plant, and spread to neighboring foliage. Many are controllable through our program.

Personal Care Applied

As a full service tree and shrub customer, you’ll receive a program specifically designed to enhance and protect your landscape. This program includes regularly scheduled visits from your Landscape Consultant every 4 – 6 weeks, plus the finest horticultural products and materials available. Your Landscape Consultant will always be available to answer questions or come by for a free service call if any special need arises.

Overwintering Insect Control
