Pruning & Plant Health
We offer the following landscape maintenance services:
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 organic or synthetic chemicals I do so sparingly, as one might use medicine for a specific illness.
