Tree, Shrubs, Shrub beds & More

Fall Deep Root Feeding – October/November

Dormant Oil w/ Copper  for Trees & Shrubs – One of the best applications for your trees and shrubs, includes the copper fungicide for optimal health, and can be done as early as February depending on the weather.

Shrub Beds – Shrub beds should be cleaned out thoroughly before the snow covers the ground.  This will help prevent damage from disease and fungus that can set in from the debris sitting there ’til spring.


Watering:   Trees, shrubs and other planted material compete with the lawn and each other for water.  Be sure to deep water trees and shrubs at least 2 to 3 times a month. And at least one last time in late October or early November depending on the freeze.  Your trees and shrubs will let you know if they are not receiving enough water from either sprinkling or rain fall. If you do not get enough water to them throughout the year they become more susceptible to drought stress and disease.
