Enjoy a green – weed free PEST FREE yard all year round with our seasonal application program. This program is designed to improve the beauty and health of your trees, shrubs and turf. Seasonal pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control along with regular fertilization and insect management are the keys to having a beautiful landscaped property.
Our PEST FREE early season and foliage protection program begins with applications of special micro-nutrients that enhance vigor, growth, color, flowering and fruiting potential. Granular fertilizer will be used on selected plants and trees. Pre-emergent applications are applied at this time to prevent various grassy and broadleaf weeds from developing. We also apply early protection against insects and diseases as necessary in preparation for summer.
Here in South Florida, summer means water. Provide your landscape and lawn with the correct amount of water, avoid over watering. This can be as detrimental as drought. Special applications of insecticides, fungicides and fertilizers are applied by PEST FREE during this time of year. Make sure your shrubs and trees are properly mulched in order to moderate temperatures, maintain soil moisture and deter weeds.
Pre-emergent and post-emergent applications to control broadleaf, sedge and winter annual weeds are applied around this time. A special potassium fertilizer application will help plants not only build strong roots, but withstand the stresses that occur during drier winter months. Grubs emerge as beetles in the early summer and lay eggs under the soil. Large numbers of beetles collected around porch lights, bird feeders or animals digging up your grass are indications of a grub problem. Early detection is key, PEST FREE can identify and manage this problem.
Certain weather conditions may make it necessary for your PEST FREE specialist to perform several different applications at the same time. This is a standard horticultural practice that ensures your trees, shrubs and turf receive the optimal benefits from our special applications. Pre-emergent and post-emergent applications are used to control winter annuals and early spring broadleaf germinations. Over the dry winter months, watch for turf-damaging mites, which cause speckling of the leaf blades. Over watering leads to fungal diseases and weed problems.
Now it is time to let PEST FREE start your Plant Health Care Program. Remember, it is easier to avoid problems than to correct them. Request an evaluation from the experts.
