Your Trees and Shrubs Need the Same TLC as Your Lawn and Flowers
When people think of their landscape and lawns, they often forget the trees and shrubs on their property. That’s a mistake. Trees and shrubs need the same love that your flowers and grass get. Your trees and shrubs are your friends; they shade you from summer’s sun, provide habitat for beautiful birds and adorn your property with their grace and beauty, adding to your pleasure and to your property’s value.
FitTurf.com’s team of highly trained technicians has the savviness, the gear and the gardening aids to give your trees and shrubs the same TLC they give your lawn. Because we’re a local company with local owners and employees, we know how to give your trees and shrubs the special care they need in Colorado and Michigan. What’s more, we offer custom consultations with each of our customers so we can give you and your trees and shrubs exactly what you and they need.
Most people know they need to water their grass and flowers, but it’s amazing how many people forget that their trees and shrubs need this same attention, along with all the other care that’s necessary for good growth and long life. In the natural world, trees and shrubs get most of their nutrients from decomposing vegetative material and from animal manure. But since your lawn is cleaned up of all debris, your shrubs and trees don’t get this much-needed nutrition. Your trees and shrubs, in fact, are competing with your lawn for fertilizer, water and light. This leaves them open to disease and insect damage that can stunt their growth, damage their beauty and in extreme cases even kill them.
FitTurf.com’s experts offer you an array of services and products to make sure that your trees and shrubs get the same quality care as your green-growing lawn. The first thing we recommend for trees and shrubs is an expert evaluation and diagnosis. Our plant doctors will confer with you about any special concerns and then examine each tree and shrub on your property to determine exactly what problems may exist and what needs to be done. The best thing about this initial consultation? It’s absolutely free!
Depending on what our experts find about your unique situation, FitTurf.com can undertake a variety of comprehensive, proven programs to make your trees and shrubs thrive. Insect problems? FitTurf.com has answers and is able to combat and eliminate any insect under the sun. Organic programs are also available.
Besides spraying to control insects, FitTurf.com’s qualified staff can also treat your trees for any diseases they may have. It’s a known fact that insects often spread diseases, and it’s also well known that it’s best to nip all of these bugs in the bud. Once insects or diseases reach a critical mass, they can be difficult to control. Contact FitTurf.com at the first sign of trouble and then make sure to have routine checkups to make sure the problem doesn’t return.
Did you know that not all insects are on your trees or shrubs — some are inside them, burrowing their destructive way into your plants’ hearts. FitTurf.com also offers its bark beetle prevention and trunk injections that can deliver micronutrients and prevent insects and borers even inside tree trunks.
Another thing: Don’t assume that the watering you give your lawn will be sufficient for your trees’ and shrubs’ maximum health. Trees and shrubs, in fact, have much more extensive water needs than grass and require occasional deep water to thrive. FitTurf.com can make sure that your trees and shrubs get the periodic supplemental deep root watering they need to grow and look their best.
Just as all watering needs aren’t created equal, so too with fertilization. Trees and shrubs have different needs than the grass on your lawn. You can’t just fertilize your lawn and expect your trees and shrubs to thrive. Contact FitTurf.com for deep root feedings to make sure your trees and shrubs get the best fertilization in the right place and the right amount at the right time.
