Don’t forget about your trees & shrubs

Trees and shrubs are an important part of any landscape. Shrubs fill in the spaces of a landscape while trees can add shade and an aesthetic element to any yard.

Like the rest of your lawn, trees and shrubs must be properly cared for to keep them protected from pest infestations and fungus. Pests and diseases cause extra stress on trees which makes it more difficult for them to survive harsh summer heat. This is the time of year that plant leaves are eaten or have spots on them, which indicates that insects and diseases are present. 

Fortunately, there are preventative actions that can be taken to help prevent pests and fungus. This time of year, watering is important to ensure the health of the root system. This can be enhanced by mulching around the base of trees and shrubs to help them hold moisture. 

Greenblade One offers services and applications to rid trees and shrubs of unwanted insects and fungus. We use a blend of insecticide, miticide, and fungicide to help fight off insects, mites, and fungus respectively. Call Greenblade One for a late summer spray upon noticing any pests or diseases to have the problem addressed immediately. The beauty of a healthy lawn is enhanced by healthy trees and shrubs.
