Tree & Shrub Program:

 

 

Dormant Oil Treatment This treatment smothers over wintering insect eggs that are layed on foliage, along with wooly scale and other insects. This also helps in disease control.

 

Ornamental Bed Weed Control Granule or liquid pre emergent weed control broadcasted throughout beds to stop spring/summer broad leaf weeds. This application is done in the early spring and late summer

 

Spring Granular Root Feeding This is the beginning of new growth on trees and shrubs coming out of dormancy. This will supply the root system with a supply of nutrients to get the best growth through the season. Also, by fertilizing, it helps to strengthen the plant so that it will not be as susceptible to insects and diseases.

 

Young Foliage Protection Insect and disease control treatment #1. Reduces the impact of disease and pest damage early in the season while new foliage is budding and growing in trees and shrubs Target controls: Cankerworms, Aphids, White Flies, Webworms, Powdery Mildew and Fungus.

 

Maturing Foliage Protection Insect and disease control treatment #2. This treatment is most effective on the later stages of springtime insect and disease infestation. This treatment helps maturing foliage of trees and shrubs to become firmly established before the heat stress of summer. Additional target controls: Tent Caterpillars, spider Mites and Leaf beetles.

 

Warm Weather Foliage Protection Insect and disease control #3. This is ongoing pest control for insects that mature during the hottest part of the summer. There is also ongoing disease control, as needed, dictated by the weather conditions, i.e. powdery mildew and fungus.

 

Late Summer Foliage Protection Insect and disease control #4. This helps the trees and shrubs recover from any infestation that has happened through the hot summer, this prepares and protects the trees and shrubs from any fall-feeding insects. Inspection and treatment will be done at this time for any existing plant diseases. Also, any preventative treatments will be done at this time.

 

Fall Feeding This is the best time to provide the root systems of the trees and shrubs with a supply of nutrients, in order to prepare for the winter dormancy and the following year’s growth period.

 

 

 

Treatment 1 - Jan Pre and post emergent weed control for winter grassy weeds such as crabgrass. Broadleaf weed control as needed. St. Augustine lawns are recommended to have a Fungus preventative done at this time for Brown Patch, along with a fertilization of 5-10-31.

 

Treatment 2 - Feb/Mar Pre and post emergent weed control for extended control of crabgrass and broadleaf weeds through spring/summer. St. Augustine will not have this application but a root growing fertilizer.

 

Treatment 3 - April Fertilizer with slow release and soluble nitrogen to gradually feed your lawn in the heat of the summer. Turf Aeration is done during this time also. This helps get oxygen and nutrients to the root system. Dependent on weather conditions during winter/spring, a separate application for all fungus on lawn may be needed and done to prevent further damage on lawn.

 

Treatment 4 – May/June Balanced fertilizer containing both slow and soluble nitrogen. Insect control for turf damaging insects as needed. Grub control will during this month as a separate application.

 

Treatment 5 – July/Aug Balanced fertilizer containing both slow and soluble nitrogen. Insect control for turf damaging insects as needed.

 

Treatment 6 – Sept/Oct Balanced fertilizer containing both slow and soluble nitrogen. Insect control for turf damaging insects as needed. Fungicide treatment will be done at this time on St. Augustine lawns to prevent late fall fungus as it is going into dormancy.

 

Treatment 7 – Nov/Dec Pre-emergent weed control treatment will be done as this time to prevent germination of winter annuals in your lawn. Broadleaf weed control treatment will be done as needed.

 

 

 

St. Augustine Lawn ProgramThe key to attractive, healthy turf is proper mowing, watering and fertilization. Low, frequent mowing encourages the turf to spread and increase in density. Deep infrequent watering encourages healthy root development. This is especially important during the hot summer months. This program is specialized for St. Augustine lawns.

 

Treament 1 - Jan/Feb Pre and post emergent weed control for winter grassy weeds such as crabgrass. Broadleaf weed control as needed. St. Augustine lawns are recommended to have a Fungus preventative done at this time for Brown Patch, along with a fertilization of 5-10-31.

 

Treatment 2 - Jan/Feb A root building fertilization using 5-10-31 with Iron

 

Treatment 3 - Mar/April Spring root building fertilization with KMag 0-0-22. Aerating is done during this time also. This helps get oxygen and nutrients to the root system. Dependent on weather conditions during winter/spring, a separate application for all fungus on lawn may be needed and done to prevent further damage on lawn.

 

Treatment 4 – May/June Balanced fertilizer containing both slow and soluble nitrogen using 24-2-4.. Insect control for turf damaging insects as needed. Grub control will during this month as a separate application using Merit.

 

Treatment 5 – July/Aug Balanced fertilizer containing both slow and soluble nitrogen using 14-0-4. Insect control for turf damaging insects as needed. i.e. Chinch bugs have been active during late summer for the past few years. These areas look like the lawn is not getting enough water in irregular patches. They suk the juice out of the grass blades and move through the turf.

 

Treatment 6 – Sept/Oct Balanced fertilizer containing both slow and soluble nitrogen using 14-0-4. Insect Fungicide treatment will be done at this time on St. Augustine lawns to prevent late fall fungus as it is going into dormancy if they had damage during the prior fall.

 

Treatment 7 – Oct/Nov Pre-emergent weed control treatment using Pendulum will be done as this time to prevent germination of winter annuals in your lawn. Broadleaf weed control treatment will be done as needed.

 

Additional Services:

Fire Ant Control (optional) This is a one year Fire ant control. Application is done when the ants are most active. Mounds need not be disturbed. This works by ants contacting each other and spreading the insecticide.

 

Grub Preventative The Grub preventative is included in the yearly turf program. core Aeration (Optional) Aerating is included at least once a year in the program. Through our drought season and winter season the soil becomes very compacted. Moisture Control (optional) This is a Green product that is put down like a fertilizer and watered in. Once watered in it expands and absorbs moisture from the air to the root system of the turf/plants. It will cut back 50% of your watering. It is highly recommended especially with so many years of drought and each city has water restrictions.

 

Turf Insect Control Blanket turfs spray application. Because of the drought and water restrictions, we have had infestations of Chinch bugs in Bermuda lawns during the late summer usually around August. The first reaction when you see the lawn is that the irrigation isn’t working correctly in these areas. Most times this is Chinch bug infestation. We are watching for this and if we see this, we will do a treatment.

 

Fungicide Application This is a blanket spray application of a systemic fungicide to prevent brown patch and take all patch during the late summer early fall. Most of the time you don’t realize it is active because it is fall and grass is going dormant. You will see this damage by looking at the runners of the St. Augustine. The runners will have discoloration. The fungus stays in the soil, treatment stops this from spreading. Usually we suggest doing an organic fertilization after treatment to help the soil condition
