Atlanta Lawn Care for Ornamental Plants

Many of our lawn care treatments are focused on maintaining a lush, green lawn; however, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our lawn care services. Trees and shrubs are essential to landscape design, adding structure, color, texture, and focal points to your yard. Unlike grass, which grows very quickly, these ornamental plants take much longer to become established. If they are negatively impacted by improper care, it can take months or even years to correct the problem! That’s why it’s so important to be proactive in defending and nurturing your trees and shrubs.

How to Prepare Ornamental Plants for Winter in Georgia

When you sign up for our annual plant healthcare program, you can rest easy knowing that your trees, shrubs, and hedges are in good hands. We’re the experts on plant healthcare in Atlanta, and we know how to help ornamental plants grow to their full potential.

Our seasonal plant healthcare treatments vary depending on the time of year. In late fall, our focus is on preventing damage caused by pests. We do that by applying horticulture oil to ornamental plants. The oil smothers overwintering insects and mites that would otherwise live on (and damage) the plant.

Of course, applying horticulture oil by itself is only part of the puzzle. One of the most important things you can do for your ornamental plants is to keep them healthy and thriving. The stronger and healthier a plant is, the less likely it is to be attacked by damaging insects, fungi, or other maladies. It’s not enough to just slap some oil on your trees and shrubs once a year; they should be treated all year round with the correct seasonal plant healthcare practices. Our program includes everything from applying early spring fertilizer treatments and micronutrients, to using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to protect your plants from damaging insects.

If you’re ready to protect your ornamental plants, we’re ready to help! Call us or contact us online to schedule a free lawn analysis and estimate on our Atlanta lawn care services. We proudly serve homeowners in Marietta, Alpharetta, Duluth, Norcross, Johns Creek, Lawrenceville, Cumming, Conyers, Loganville, and elsewhere in northeast metro Atlanta.

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
