Shrubs and ornamental plants need to be cared for just as much as your lawn does. They give your landscape its unique look, but they can detract from the beauty of your yard when the plants wilt or are unhealthy in any way.

Your landscape lawn and ornamental shrubs can be some of the most valuable elements of your yard. With our shrub and ornamental care services, you can safeguard your investment from fungus, insects, and diseases that can stem from our harsh environment here in Sarasota, Florida.


The simplest way to determine if a shrub or ornamental is covered by our services is its location. Our services are designed for those shrubs and ornamentals located in your yard and flower beds. We’ve got you covered if your plant is under twelve feet tall.



Your landscaped yard needs care to ensure that it continues to live and thrive. There are effective methods available along with preventive measures that can be taken to reduce the spread of pathogens that can be harmful to your plants. What’s more, conditions can be created to discourage contamination by pests. These practices can include some or all of the following:

  • Correct site selection
  • Appropriate planting methods
  • Elimination of undesirable plants
  • Use of distinct species on your landscape
  • Raised beds
  • Mulching, and more!

These methods can be consolidated or applied individually as the fundamentals of your shrub and ornamental care strategy.

Making seasonal adjustments will be beneficial to your plants’ success, enabling them to thrive in different types of weather. The right amounts of water and nourishment are also important considerations; these can’t always be assured naturally, so the important thing to remember is that plants need stability. Adding sprinklers and adjusting the timer based on climate conditions ensure that your plants get sufficient water while saving you money. Furthermore, examining your soil for the content and grade of nutrients available lets you customize any needed modifications for your landscape to bloom and thrive!
