Our Lawn Services Include:
Many Florida lawns, gardens, shrubs and trees are threatened each year by pests such as chinch bugs, grubs, aphids, mites and more. The warm climate makes most of these pests a threat year round causing extensive damage and even killing plants in severe cases. Aphids and white flies feed on tender plant parts and have the ability to transmit viruses. Chinch bugs cause serious damage to turf grass causing it to turn yellow and die. Grubs also attack lawns eating roots, shoots and blades of grass and mites affect ornamental plants by sucking the juice out of delicate foliage.
Fertilization and Weed Control
Providing the right nutrients at the right time to lawns, trees and ornamental plants ensures they have the necessary foundation to thrive all year long. If not kept in check, aggressive weeds such as dollar weed, goose grass, oxalis and clover can take over an entire lawn in no time.
Fire Ant Control
Fire ants are also a significant threat and their presence in your lawn requires immediate attention. Fire ants are extremely territorial and will attack anyone that comes near their nest causing multiple stings from multiple ants in just a matter of seconds.
