Insect & weed control – We practice IPM, Integrated Pest Management and treat only if necessary.  Integrated pest management (IPM) is a sustainable way to manage and improve plant health by the prevention of pest activity, and the preservation of beneficial insects.   Pest problems on lawns or ornamental plants are managed by monitoring pest presence, knowing their life cycles, gauging how much plant damage may happen, and the most effective timing to control.  The idea is to minimize pest activity and damage, but not to eliminate all insects or beneficial micro-organisms from the landscape since most do not our plants.

Annual color plantings – Spring and Fall annual beds offer an explosion of color.

Complete pruning – Plants are pruned at the appropriate time of year for each species to maintain healthy form and maximum flowering.

Pond & Watergarden maintenance programs – Koi ponds and water gardens differ greatly in their construction and maintenance.  We tailor pond maintenance to your particular system .
