Horticultural services pertain to all plant material and their health and well being. As you may have noticed while scrolling through our other pages, this area is a specialty of ours. Although we have grown and expanded into other areas of the industry, plant material will always be at our heart.
Two of the more specialized Horticultural Services that we offer include specialized pruning and Integrated Pest Management. The two of these services are both geard
Specialized pruning is a practice that pertains to the very valuable assets you have growing on your property. Plant material is alway appreciating in value, especially the specimen plants strategically placed within the design of your property. These special plants require an increased amount of attention. An inexperienced pruner can easily damage one of these specimens. Our experienced and knowledgeable pruning specialists can flawlessly shape and manicure these stand out performers. Proper timing and more importantly proper procedure is imperative in the execution of these tasks. Just one slip of the saw can result in a wound that could quickly be attacked by waiting insects. Contact Us today and you can rest assured that your property is being cared for by the best.
Hand in hand with specialized pruning comes our other highly specialized service. IPM stands for Integrated Pest Management. This is a horticultural program that is developed site specific. That means that your program will be like no one else’s, because the program is based on the plant material on your property. When you Contact Us one of our Horticultural experts will join you in a tour of your property. During this meeting our associate will point out problems that they see present, and also educate you on possible threats to other areas. The current problem areas can be treated immediately to begin restoring and repairing the situations. While walking your parcel with you the horticulturist will be diligently documenting the situations they encounter while simultaneously compiling a list of present plant material. Post meeting he or she will develop the program. This program will consist of regular visits or “scouting missions”. These missions involve our expert returning to your property to survey the present problems. Some problems can be pre-determined. Depending on time of year, recent weather patterns, growing degree days, and symbiotic relationships between life cycles of insects and the time of year, certain things are more likely to be present. Once the horticulturist develops the program according to your site and highlights the potential problems they return for their visits and check up on the situations and look for other less likely visitors. With the frequency of visits our associate can stay on top of problems before they have to chance to become overly damaging. When problems do close in on damaging thresholds then applications can be made to deter the compounding problems.
