Plant Disease

Since there are many different diseases that attack plants, we do not include disease control in our Programs. Palm trees may also require special fungicide treatments such as crown rot, root rot, and infestations of palm weevils, bores, etc. In addition and deemed necessary, we do offer to collect and send a sample to a laboratory for testing for an additional charge to diagnose which particular pathogen or pest that may be attacking your plants. Once we know the problem and can determine the appropriate treatment, we can quote a price for treatment.

Sedge Control

Sedges include nutsedge, globe sedge, kyllinga, and annual sedge. Sedges typically thrive in wet area s that are over watered or have poor drainage. They are mostly perennial and spread by seeds or underground tubers. Once established, sedges can be difficult to control. Repeated applications of weed control products throughout the growing season along with correcting the favorable conditions that allowed the sedge to establish will provide a degree of relief.

Grassy Weed Control

Grassy Weeds includes alexandergrass (a.k.a. creeping signalgrass), sandbur, crabgrass (several varieties), torpedograss, goosegrass, thin paspalum and creeping bermudagrass. Selectively controlling grassy weeds, once they are established (especially in St. Augustine grass lawns), is nearly impossible. Applications of pre-emergent herbicides before the weeds emerge, helps prevent weed establishment. In turf it may be necessary to cut out and physically remove these weeds and then replace with new sod. We will be happy to schedule a free evaluation and provide the best control measures.
