Our Annual Shrub Program was created to ensure your landscape stays pest and disease free year round by combining timely fertilization with insect and disease controls.
A brief outline of our seven applications can be found below.
Dormant Oil and fungicide are applied to your landscape. Dormant Oil is a clear, non-toxic liquid that will smother any hibernating insects and mites. Fungicide will control any cool season disease activity.
Early Spring Application:
We apply a slow release fertilizer with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. This balance will provide nutrients for good spring growth and blooms. Disease and insect controls applied where needed.
Disease and insect controls will be applied. This is the time of year to be looking for aphid and powdery mildew activity.
Early Summer Application:
Disease and insect controls are applied for continued residual protection against invading summer problems such as lace bugs and aphids (pictured above).
Disease and insect controls are again applied for continued residual protection.
Another close inspection of individual shrubs. Controls for damaging insects and diseases are applied.
Granular slow release fertilizer is applied to your landscape. This will supply the nutrients to strengthen your landscape for the upcoming cold months and continue a hearty and healthy root system.
