As part of our Sharp Bed & Bush Package, our shrub and tree insect control prevents pests from damaging plants on your property. Our treatments begin in mid-spring, before insects are most active to get ahead of them. We return to your property for six other treatments throughout the summer to ensure your beds continue to get the care they need all summer long.

With each visit, our technicians inspect your beds for any insects that are common to our area and will treat them before they can grow into an issue. As part of our Sharp Bed & Bush Package, your beds will also benefit from our weed control and fertilization treatments to keep your decorative trees and shrubs healthy and strong all summer long.

When do we treat your trees and shrubs for insects?

At Sharp Lawn Care, our goal is to keep your trees and shrubs free of insects so that they stay healthy and look beautiful throughout the year. When you sign up for our Sharp Bed & Bush Package, two of our visits will be to specifically spray for insects that are known to infest trees and shrubs in our area.

The first of these visits will be in mid-spring, building a shield of protection from bugs and insects. We will then re-apply a pest-control treatment in mid-summer, to protect your trees and shrubs from chewing and nesting insects when they are most active.

We hold a pesticide applicator license from the Department of Agriculture!

Road Map to a Sharp Lawn

Lawn Road Map: Step One

Aeration is the First Step

Aeration removes soil cores that can prevent sunlight, water, and nutrients from penetrating the root structure. It promotes lush, healthy grass that’s a great defense against weeds and insect pests. This should be repeated every spring and fall. Learn more about aeration.

Lawn Road Map: Step Two

Fertilization & Weed Control Strengthen Your Lawn

Throughout the season, fertilization and weed control strengthens your grass and kills weeds, which opens the area for more grass to grow once planted in the fall. This should be repeated every season—more on fertilization and weed control.

Lawn Road Map: Step Three

Overseeding Promotes New Growth

In fall, the weeds are under control, the pests are mostly gone, and there are still several weeks of temperatures and conditions ideal for growth. That makes it the only perfect time for overseeding so that you get great new growth ahead of winter and are ready to go the next spring. One other thing to mention is the type of grass seed, which is the most important thing to consider. Choosing the correct seed will give your lawn a better growth habit and improve wear, heat, and drought tolerance. This should be done every fall until thick and then every 3-5 years, or as needed. Get the full story on fall seeding.

Keep Your Grass at the Proper Height

Keeping your grass at the proper height for the season has two benefits: it provides shade for the roots during the hotter months and reduces other stresses that can cause damage. During spring and fall, keep it at 3 ½ to 4 inches; go up to 4 ½ inches during the summer. Regardless of length, never cut more than 40% off at once. How to do mowing right.

Lawn Road Map: Step Five

The Right Amount of Water

Adequately water, but don’t overwater. Water 2 or 3 days each week, with an inch per week being the average in spring and fall and up to 2 inches when it gets hotter in the summer. Save water and money by watering early in the morning before evaporation kicks in—more watering tips here.
