Trees and Shrub Maintenance

Tree & Shrub Care

There’s more to caring for your trees and shrubs than pruning limbs and branches from time to time. Read on to learn more about how your lawn could be in danger and steps you can take to prevent having anything other than a spectacularly verdant landscape.

What Threats Are There for Trees & Shrubs

You’re probably familiar with pests and microorganisms that can set up shop on your lawn and damage the health of your grass. When it comes to trees and shrubs, there are pests that can wreak havoc on your plants. These include:

  • Aphids
  • Weevils
  • Caterpillars
  • Japanese Beetles
  • Slugs
  • Spider Mites
  • Emerald Ash Borers
  • & More

How to Protect My Trees & Shrubs

If you’re seeing pests currently or you want to guard against them, you have a few options when it comes to the actions you can take against damaging insects and pests.

Physical Intervention

If you have plenty of time on your hands, you can literally remove the pests by hand (no pun intended). This treats the symptom but not the cause. You can see how labor intensive this kind of practice could be, especially if you have a lawn of more than a couple of tenths of an acre.

Natural Pesticides

There are a range of options for pest solutions that are environmentally friendly. The trick is this — not all bugs are bad. Some of them are quite necessary for the survival of your lawn and for your plants to really thrive.

Consult a lawncare expert before applying any pest control solution to your plants or soil.

Natural solutions include:

  • Neem oil
  • Soapy water
  • Alcohol spray
  • Tobacco-Water solution
  • Beer & Citrus Fruit
  • Garlic
  • Pepper Spray

Michael Chambers

I've been a TruGreen customer for several years and have always received efficient and professional service. My yard looks great and I'm very happy with their service.

            

Megan Flink

Great service initially, however after a few treatments I ran into some customer service issues. There were multiple times when someone failed to show up. After calling my local office and speaking to a manager things have been running smoothly since. Overall happy with my service, but have had some problems in the past.

            

Bill Haley

I am pleased with the service. My lawn went from about 85% weeds to about 15%. Unfortunately due to the drought this year and the water restrictions I am not able to water the lawn enough to keep it green so the lawn is turning a little brown. However, I'm very pleased with the amount of weeds that have disappeared.

            

Jared Dillon

I always get a courtesy call when service is due and they always come on the scheduled day. All of the people that come are very nice and professional. Very happy with my local service and would highly recommend.
