Pruning & Plant Health

We offer the following landscape maintenance services:

Expert Pruning

 

  • Rehabilitation pruning can often save neglected or overgrown landscapes and restore their original beauty without the need for more disruptive and expensive plant removal and replanting.

 

  • Regular seasonal pruning will maintain plant health, maximize flowering, and keep the aesthetic shape and balance of your plantings. I offer customized pruning programs based on the needs of your landscape.

 

Soil Testing & Remediation

 

  • Healthy plants require healthy soil, and a soil test is used to identify nutrient deficits/surpluses and the level of organic matter in the soil. Based on the test results I will recommend a soil treatment plan if necessary.

 

Insect and Disease Management

 

  • I follow Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods to effectively monitor, prevent, and control problems. When necessary I use highly effective natural products; when it is essential to use synthetic chemicals I do so sparingly, as one might use medicine for a specific illness.
