Lawn with dandelion patches.
Broadleaf Weed Spraying

This group of weeds is made up of all non-grassy weeds such as dandelions, clover, and thistle. These weeds are controlled in lawn with selective broadleaf herbicides.

Grassy Weed Spraying

All un-desirable grasses found in the lawn and landscape. These can be annual or perennial grasses such as crabgrass, barnyard grass, foxtail, and tall fescue. Some of these can be controlled in lawns with pre-emergent or selective herbicides that target annual grasses.


We primarily use a custom blended liquid fertilizer with slow release nitrogen.

Compost Tea

Each batch is made to order. We actively aerate compost tea in 50 gallon batches for 36 hours. At which point we transfer it to an aerated tank on the truck for transport. We apply the tea with low pressure through a diaphragm pump to ensure survival of the bacteria and fungi. Our compost tea is not meant to provide large amounts of nutrients but rather soil amendments and a massive amount of microbiological organisms. This can help break down organic material and increase nutrient cycling.

Cytospora Canker

Cytospora is a fungus that affects many species of trees in our area. It is an opportunistic pathogen that infects stressed trees through bark wounds from pruning, insects or other broken limbs. Cytospora forms cankers that disrupt the vascular system of the tree. The fungus spreads until the tree’s defenses stop it or the tree is girdled and dies. Once a tree is infected, the best treatment is to increase vigor and remove infected limbs.

White Pine Weevil

White pine weevils affect spruce trees under 35ft in height. They lay their eggs on the terminal leader of spruce trees in early spring. The larvae feed under the surface eventually girdling the terminal and killing it. The tree will survive; however, repeated attacks will stress the tree and cause misshapen growth. White pine weevils can be prevented by spraying in the spring.

Cooley Spruce Gall

Cooley spruce gall adelgids are aphid like insects that cause new branch growth to form galls. Preventative sprays can be made in the fall or in the spring before the galls form. Cooley spruce gall adelgids won’t kill a tree directly but can cause the tree to be unsightly.


Aphid outbreaks can be a nuisance due to the dripping honey dew. The honey dew is the sticky waste excreted from the aphids. Honey dew can attract wasps and bees and can cause sooty mold to grow which can stain tree trunks and masonry. Aphids can be prevented with systemic treatments.

Spider Mites

There are many species of spider mites but the two most common in this area are the two spotted spider mite and the spruce spider mite. The spruce spider mite mainly affects spruce and junipers while the two spotted spider mite may affect many plant species. The two spotted spider mite is a major pest of aspens especially during dry years. Spider mites are smaller than the head of a pin, produce webbing and reproduce prolifically. This combination of attributes makes them difficult to control.
