PESTS & DISEASES
EXPERIENCED, INTEGRATED, AND SAFE
We deeply value a safe and clean landscape environment.
When and how to treat a prized landscape plant that is under stress from a pest or disease is a decision that requires thoughtfulness, transparency, and pragmatism. We believe in building a decision making environment with our clients rooted in honesty and free of aggressive sales motives. If intervention is required, effective use of Organic, non-toxic, and least toxic plant medications demands professional expertise with precise application techniques.
Achieving vibrant health for the plants of your landscape requires awareness of all the factors that affect them: soil health, installation history, construction damage, drought, pest or disease damage. Proper diagnosis is key.
