Plants and Ornamental Shrubs
such as the exotic plants that thrive in the South Florida climate, attract specific types of insects that can damage or kill them. Regular fertilization and the right material applied directly to the roots help prevent these pests.
in South Florida are affected by many diseases that are difficult to detect, so even seemingly healthy trees can be at risk. Applying the right nutrient supplement keeps them healthy and growing.
Disease and fungus
Brown patch, dollar spot, fairy rings, and other common lawn diseases are caused by fungus, not lack of water or nutrients.
When lawns start waking up in early spring, they’re hungry for nutrients and need fertilizer to strengthen their roots. By late spring and early summer, the lawn may need another dose of fertilizer along with some weed prevention. Summer’s high heat, drought, and peak insect activity stress the grass, so another application of fertilizer may be needed. Fall is a time of recovery for the grass and preparation for dormancy during the winter, but it’s also one of the most important times to fertilize.
