TREE + SHRUB CARE PROGRAM

Maintaining the health of your trees, shrubs and plantings is just as important as maintaining healthy grass. Trees and shrubs are very expensive to replace if lost and add significantly to the value of your home. At DREAM LAWN, we want to help you protect your investment.

Our tree and shrub care program is designed to incorporate IPM practices, including scouting and controlled use of pesticides to protect the environment, with pro-actively timed applications for fertilization and disease and insect control

Dormant Oil Spray

Applied when plants are dormant before bud break, it helps control pest problems early. Often it reduces the need for other pesticide applications later on. Dormant oil is a nontoxic spray that kills wintering forms of many pests (spider mites, aphids, scales, and leaf hoppers), by coating and suffocating them. It has little if any impact on natural enemies.

Fungus Control

Systemic fungicides are applied at bud break and reapplied at intervals to offer control of these common fungal diseases:
