Services for Residential and Golf Courses

Our company works mostly with commercial landscape contractors.  We also do on-site consultations with private properties and golf courses.  We make recommendations but we do not sell products and we do not apply the treatments.Scroll down for a sample of the services we offer.

Diagnostic of Plant Problems

What is wrong with my plant?

We hear the question all the time.  We can help. We provide on-site diagnostics of plant problems and recommendations for the most appropriate course of action.

You can find more information at the page Diagnostic Services.

Tree Evaluation

Healthy plants are an asset to your green space.

We can appraise tree values.  We can suggest strategies for maintenance of mature trees and protection during construction projects.  Our recommendations are realistic and practical, based on experience and up-to-date research.

You can find more information at the page Tree Assessments.

Fertilization

Are your plants adequately fertilized?

We conduct on-site testing and collect samples for laboratory analysis.  We provide interpretation of the laboratory results for soils and plant tissue.

You can find more information at the page Plant Health Care.

Pest Management

You do not have to spray every year for the same pest problems.  Get a long-term solution to the problem.

Our team can build, review and improve your pest management programs.  We practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM) – a decision making process that combines regular monitoring with a variety of control techniques.

You can find more information at the page Pest Management.

For a series of 6 pamphlets on common pest problems for education of home owners prepared by our company in 2009 for the City of Kelowna please visit the Pest Management in Backyards section on the Sustainable Practices page.

Site Assessment

Conducting a thorough site assessment is the first step in a proper IPM program.

All plants on your property should be examined to confirm needs for pruning, fertilization or pest management.  This information is then used to build a seasonal calendar of work activities.

The program is customized for your site and allows you to make an informed decision regarding the maintenance budget.

You can find more information at the page Monitoring Services.

Plant Health Care

Best management practices have evolved over the past 10 years for trees and shrubs.

Stay up-to-date with modern knowledge.  Our team can build, audit or improve your programs for pruning, planting and fertilization.  Our recommendations are rooted in many years of field work and attending technical conferences.

You can find more information at the page Plant Health Care.
