Should I invest in plant health care?
Living in North Mississippi and the Memphis area, it’s not unusual to wake up on April 21 and find that your landscape has suffered yet another freeze. For those who remembered the night before, maybe some shrubs and plants were covered in burlap or with garbage bags or tablecloths or just anything that could be grabbed before bedtime. For most, we all woke up with our fingers crossed that whatever happened last night wouldn’t kill our plants!
We have all filled our carts at the home improvement stores with spring plants and had sticker shock when the total is announced. Some of us have invested much, much more in professional landscaping services that rival the cost of a new car. Why do we spend so much money on shrubs, flowering trees, plants for our yard and then drop the ball? It’s like building a pool and then never putting in chemicals or cleaning it out! Or buying a car but never changing the oil or tires.
Protecting your landscape is protecting your investment.
When you invest in a plant health care program, you are allowing a professional to examine your plants, determine what is best for them, and then treating and nurturing them to get the most out of your investment.
What do I get with a plant health care program?
At Lawn and Pest Solutions, a plant health care program includes the following:
- 6 visits per year from a licensed lawn technician with advanced knowledge of plant health care.
- At each visit your plants will be fertilized.
- At each visit your plants will be monitored for insects, diseases and will be treated for what is found.
- At each visit you will receive a written report from the technician which tells you what he observed, what he did and what you need to know to keep up the treatment process.
Why replace plants from year to year because they are unhealthy?
The money you spend on a plant health care program will eventually save you from replacing diseased or dying/dead plants. Nurturing your plants and making them the healthiest they can be will help them to become stable and mature in your lawn. An expert eye can detect a problem in your plants before it spreads to others. A healthy lawn and plant landscape will be strong enough to endure April 21 freezes and August 21 droughts.
