Specialized Tree & Shrub Care
There are times when specific plants, trees or shrubs, need localized nutrient delivery, and our technicians are trained to spot when they are needed. They can also advise if pruning is needed and when is the best time to do so. Deep Root Injections are included in our Tree & Shrub Service plan and provide a slow release of fertilizer directly to your plant roots to keep them green and beautiful.

SAB and You: A Beautiful Landscape Requires an Ongoing Partnership
There are several key factors to consider that have an effect on the overall health and appearance of your trees and shrubs. It is imperative that you help us help you by doing your part in maintaining a healthy and vibrant lawn. Your service technician will always advise you if certain conditions are inhibiting your landscape from looking its best. We want you to be happy and satisfied.

Watering – Proper amounts of water and good coverage are critical to the success of the tree and shrub program.
Any areas deficient in water will respond slowly to our program and could potentially lead to tree or shrub loss. Overhead watering is not recommended as this can leave the leaf canopy wet and increase the risk of disease. Watering should be directed to the base or root zone of the tree or shrub. Soaker hoses or micro irrigation is a good way to water landscape plants. During periods of drought, it is especially important to check all irrigation heads. This helps to ensure they are working properly and you are receiving adequate amount and coverage of water. In general, you will want to water ONLY in the early morning hours. Irrigation should be off by daybreak (dawn). This will help to reduce the likelihood of the plants staying wet for too long and creating the potential for disease.

Weather – Weather plays a big role in the appearance of your trees and shrubs
Some plants are not as cold hardy, which means they are more susceptible to cold or frost damage. The type, age and health of the plant can all be factors as to how well it survives low temperatures. In the past, we have seen temperatures in the 30’s or below which can be devastating to some palms and other vegetation. Not all plants are able to recover from this. While we normally have mild winters and hot summers, the occasional cold snap can cause irreversible damage to certain landscape plants.

Beyond Anyone’s Control –
Our service is designed to treat, diagnose, recommend and work to prevent issues with your trees and shrubs. However, as you have seen, there are several factors beyond our control. This is why it is important to us that you are aware of things that can hinder a successful program and our ability to attain desired results.

Tree Injections-
Tree Injections are a specialized extra service that we can provide that is guaranteed for one year. We offer control treatments for the invasive Rugose Spiraling Whitefly which has been known to wreak havoc on palm trees and other landscape plants, as well as creating an unsightly mess of a black tar like substance known as sooty mold. Sooty Mold is extremely difficult to remove from patios, pool decks, cars, sidewalks, and other surrounding landscape plants as well as negate the chlorine in your pool potentially turning the water green leading to frustration and money spent on pool service when the culprit may be a whitefly infestation. One injection is guaranteed for an entire year. We offer nutrient injections for palms and can also treat for various diseases that can infest a variety of palms and hardwood trees.
