We are well aware of the importance of ornamental management. In addition to our design, installation and maintenance services, we specialize in protection of your landscaping investments. Ornamental shrubs, trees, flowers and bushes require simple preventative applications of fungicides or pesticides in a timely manner. This monitoring for insects and ornamental plant diseases is incorporated into our affordable landscape maintenance packages that can save thousands of dollars in replacements should damage be allowed to progress unchecked.
How We Manage Your Ornamental Landscape
Our service crews will inspect ornamental plantings to determine the sources of problems. They are experienced and trained to know what to look for in different types of plants and trees. This region has specialized ornamental management needs that are constantly changing as the landscapes around the area are redone and replanted. Problems can show up on flowers, leaves or on the entire plant.
For some areas of grass there is endophytic fungus that is the problem. In fescue grasses the problem fungus actually gives a benefit to the grass although the end result is bad for wildlife. The fungus causes the grasses to become inedible due to toxic qualities. Knowing what to look for, how to treat the problem and what time of year is best for treatment is essential to solving these problems. Timing of herbicide application is critical. Peach Tree landscape crews will treat your ornamentals properly and at the right time for success.
Starting with the End in Mind
Our service teams and design teams work together in landscape planning, to try to avoid future problems from the beginning. If certain trees are planted they will be subject to weather breakage problems (Hackberry, Virginia Pine, Chinaberry, Weeping Willows) or insect invasion. Silver Maple and Boxelder are notorious for hosting mites, aphids and scales that damage the trees and create lawn litter. Other trees like Norway Maple make growing grass underneath the trees a problem. Many trees are subject to pests including Eastern Tent Caterpillars, Fall Webworms, Cankerworms, Gypsy Moths and Sawfiles. They can become unsightly with seeds, pods, bird droppings, smelly odors and other problems that planning prior to planting can avoid.
