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.

Hello, I didn't catch my service techs name today, but wanted to let you know what a great job he did today, please pass this along. His service was wonderful and he was very polite, I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work! And thank you!
I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
