Most companies quote prices before they diagnose your needs.  We think that is like driving with mud on your windshield.

The following simple and effective property evaluations can reveal what services are really needed.  Here is a question. What do you call it when a doctor writes a prescription before he has diagnosed the problem?  Malpractice! So why should a landscaper prescribe fertilization, or other corrective procedures without testing the soil and analyzing other issues first.  He should not.  Therefore we offer the following low cost analyses. We do this so cheap because we know its the first step in an informed relationship. So lets get started.

Services that we will be glad to offer on a consultant basis and who would do it.

– Full soil analysis up to 6 samples per property- Soil Testing as a management tool is greatly under used and is one of the most under used ways to enhance and protect  the curb appeal of your property. Excessive concentration of nutrients will cause toxicity while a lack of nutrients will stunt the growth of your landscape.

Waiting until discoloration, wilting and/or burned leaves or diseases will limit the success of a correction and a green plant does not mean that it is not under stress.
