Turf and Shrub Fertilization – Healthy turf, trees, and shrubs increase the value of your property and are more resistant to drought, disease and pests. The proper fertilizer can increase the vigor of your valuable landscape plants, but the wrong fertilizer can damage plants, encourage disease and pollute groundwater.
All plants and turf need certain nutrients to grow and thrive. There are 17 elements needed for growth. Plants acquire oxygen, carbon and hydrogen, which are found in the air, and micro- and macronutrients that are absorbed from the soil. Macronutrients, those required in larger amounts, include nitrogen, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous and sulfur.
Micronutrients include iron, zinc, molybdenum, manganese, boron, copper, cobalt and chlorine. Spring is the optimum time to fertilize all turf, trees and shrubs. If you are planting trees or shrubs in early spring, apply a small amount of slow-release fertilizer 6 to 8 weeks after planting. For established trees and shrubs, an early spring application of fertilizer based on your soil test is best.
If your soil is sandy, you may need to make an additional application, especially during a wet growing season. Do not fertilize during periods of drought because it will encourage water-demanding new growth.
Pruning: The importance of tree pruning is best handled by one of our skilled tree experts. Our certified arborists direct the process, ensuring safe practices and healthy trees that grow to their full potential.
Pruning options range from thinning the canopy throughout to allow light and air to move through the tree, crown raising to remove just lower limbs, reduction cuts that reduce the size (length) of limbs and the tree for construction clearance and to prevent damage to existing homes, and crown cleaning to remove dead, dying diseased or dangerous branches.
Young trees get attention, too. Developmental pruning techniques are utilized to ensure that young trees grow and develop with proper limb structure into healthy, beautiful specimen trees in the urban forest.
Removal: Hazardous trees – those that possess a potential to fail and cause property damage or personal injury– are simply too dangerous to leave. Dead or dying trees – and those in the way of new construction will require safe, expert removal by licensed and insured experts.
Our arborist take care to not only bring the tree down safely, but to remove its existence thoroughly. Once down, stump grinding prevents new growth, not to mention immediate use of the area the stump once occupied. And if required, chipping not only eliminates the waste, but provides recycled mulch.
Stump Removal: Once a hazardous or unwanted tree has been removed, the stump that is left behind can be unsightly and take up valuable space on your property. Stumps of some species of trees may even re-sprout and grow into multiple trees. Stump grinding is the most effective way to remove stumps and minimize the effects to the surrounding landscaping.
The stump grinder we use is light, maneuverable, and allows us to remove stumps in backyards, through gates, and other areas where access is limited. Once the stump is removed, the space becomes useable again to plant a new tree.

Pine straw and Mulch – Pine straw and Mulch is an essential component of a landscape. Not only is it great for curb appeal but there many beneficial factors as well. It helps retain moisture as well as keeping your ground temperature cooler by having a barrier to protect from direct sunlight.
Mulch and pine straw is usually applied twice a year to give you the most visually appealing property that you neighbors will envy. There are many options of mulch you can choose from such as brown cypress, black mulch, red mulch, natural mulch, and DHEC approved playground mulch (required by child care facilities and schools).
There is two options for pine straw Long Needle and Slash. Long needle is the highest of quality, vibrantly bright in color and clean thoroughly prior to being bailed. Slash is the cheaper of the two and the strands of pine straw are smaller due to the bailing process used. When we applying pine straw we tuck our edges manually which is the proper installation method to give you the most pristine look.
Mole Treatments – Mole activity can wreak havoc in the yard, not because they eat up everything (they usually feed on worms or grubs) but because their mounded tunnels are often used by other burrowing pests.
Moles, for the most part, are quite harmless to your plants. However, their tunnels can become unsightly when there’s enough of them. We use two methods to remove them baiting and granular applications. Contact us for a free estimate.
