I use integrated pest management which utilizes common sense practices, with a scientific based approach to managing insects, disease, weeds and other pests of landscapes. It is a decision-making process that begins with prevention by monitoring for issues found in the landscape. With accurate diagnosis of the plant pest or plant problem I then determine the actual or potential economic and or aesthetic damage. If control is needed, I select strategies that are economically feasible, sustainably acceptable, effective, and time them properly to suppress the damage. My services also include general maintenance of landscapes including pruning, weeding, planting, fall and spring cleanup, mowing lawns and monthly maintenance. I provide consultation services including design suggestions for your landscape, identifying plants or maintenance questions regarding your landscape.
