LEARN ABOUT OUR UPCOMING SUMMER SERVICES!

Summer Lawn Applications:

Our professional technicians apply each lawn application with care and precision. Applications are applied during specific times throughout the year to maximize nutrient uptake and to avoid any harm to the surrounding environment. Beginning early May, we will begin applying our Insecticide and Weed Kill lawn applications. If you are new to our program, we may need to customize the package based on the status of your lawn.

  • Insecticide Lawn Application – This is a granular application, which controls above and below insects. This lawn application can be applied more than once throughout the summer to continue to protect your lawn if requested. Here are some of the most common insects: grub, fleas, and ticks.
  • Weed Kill Lawn Application – This is our only liquid lawn application; it will only treat weeds present at time of visit (does not prevent). After a two-week period, our technician will return to do a spot check treatment. It’s completely normal to see bare spots after the application as it’s getting rid of the weeds.

The 7 lawn applications are applied as follows throughout the year:

  • Pre-emergent – March
  • Spring Lime – April
  • Spring Fertilizer – April
  • Insecticide – May
  • Weed Kill – July
  • Fall Lime – September
  • Fall Fertilizer – September

Insecticide on Shrubs:

The insecticide is a liquid foliar spray, applied by hand, and it is a contact foliar spray applied to most common damaged (select) plants. It deters insects from eating foliage from a wide range of shrubs such as Roses, Japanese Weeping maple, and Cherry Laurels. It is used to control a wide range of insects such as beetles, mites, and wood borers. We start early May, to prevent plants from being damaged, this is applied three times during the summer May, June, and July. 

Summer Prune:

G A Landscaping is set to accomplish a healthy-looking landscape around your home! Therefore, we are now offering summer prune services to conserve the longevity of your shrubs by restoring shape and structure. Pruning during summer is beneficial as it avoids the shrubs to overgrow their space and it stimulates new healthy growth. It improves the air circulation, therefore, reducing moist-based problems such as: fungi, dead roots, and pests. 

Common plants that would require summer prune:

  • Roses (dead head to promote new blooms)
  • Lilacs
  • Spiraeas
  • Camellias
  • Rhododendrons 
  • Abelias
  • Fruit trees
