Trees and shrubs are highly valued around your landscape, and you don’t want them to go into remission. If you start to see your plants experiencing problems, disease and pests could be big concerns for you. It’s not easy to protect your plants from disease and pests, especially without experience. That’s why many people will turn to a professional landscape contractor to address the problem. If you don’t know what a landscape contractor can do to help your trees and shrubs, here is what you should know about their work process.
They Will Assess Your Property
Before your landscape contractor even goes onto your property, they will survey the area and think about what goals you have for your landscape. You will likely be asked a few questions regarding your landscape, such as:
- What problems are you experiencing?
- How do these problems impact your plants?
- What do you deem to be your main intention when starting a health care regimen for your plants?
Scouting the Area
Since you will have already brought your concerns to their attention, your landscape contractor will already understand your concerns once they get to your property. However, they will still undergo an entire assessment so they can witness your problems for themselves. They might even find problems that you may not have noticed yourself.
Professionals already understand which pests and diseases are likely to harm your plants at different times of the year. This helps the workers to come up with a plan for preventive and curative care of your plants.
Spraying Plants Preventatively and Curatively
Preventive care is done before problems arise while curative care is done for existing problems. A professional landscape contractor will understand which treatment to give to each plant in your yard because they understand that different plants require different types of care. On top of helping the plants directly, they can also help to improve your soil’s health. Soil plays a big role in the defense against pests and disease.
Providing Additional Recommendations
Once your treatments get finished, a reputable landscape contractor will provide you with notes regarding what was done on your landscape. In addition, they will sometimes give you suggestions on what you can do to keep your landscape healthy when they’re not around.
Build Upon Prior Success
Problems don’t go away forever, so you’ll want a landscape contractor to return to your property and build upon everything they have done on their last visit. To make sure the proper care is given, your landscape contractor will look over the notes they made about their last visit to your property, then give treatment as appropriate.
