It's not uncommon for landscaping to cost $20,000, $30,000, $40,000 dollars, so you would want to spend the time, in an essence like an insurance policy, to keep those plants from becoming infested with an insect or being damaged by a disease.
Plainfield, IL (PRWEB) March 13, 2009
Spring-Green is answering homeowner concerns about spring tree and lawn care maintenance with the release of two new episodes from their popular podcast series, Lawn Talk.
Most homeowners are concerned with protecting their overall landscape and wondering what they can do this spring to protect their green spaces.
Harold Enger reminds homeowners during the Tree & Shrub Care podcast that most landscapes are comprised of non-native plants, trees and shrubs that require special care. By taking the necessary precautions against insects and disease, homeowners are effectively taking out an "insurance policy" that protects the overall landscape investment.
"Landscape plants are expensive," says Enger. "It's not uncommon for landscaping to cost $20,000, $30,000, $40,000 dollars, so you would want to spend the time, in an essence like an insurance policy, to keep those plants from becoming infested with an insect or being damaged by a disease."
Injections against the dreaded Emerald Ash Borer and leaf diseases, such as powdery mildew, in early spring prevent costly, unsightly damage to trees and shrubs. In this Tree & Shrub Care episode, Enger goes on to explain how Spring-Green uses a wedgle tool to inject trees with a control substance for proper tree and shrub care.
Another treatment to consider for protecting you green spaces this spring is a lime application that corrects a harmful pH balance.
Enger discusses how to tell whether homeowners need this lawn treatment in the podcast episode entitled Lime Application. Not every lawn needs lime, Enger warns, so it's important to understand which regions of the country need this grass care application.
