Plant Health Care IPM Program

Our Integrated Pest Management Program covers 360┬░ of pest problems with controlled treatments to keep your plantings lush and beautiful.

Healthy, pest-free plants are an integral part of beautiful landscape. Professional Grounds, Inc. was one of the first companies to develop an innovative program to improve pest management while reducing an overall reliance on pesticides. We stay at the forefront of the industry by following all trade and university publications to ensure we are always employing the best management strategies and using the best control products.

Through frequent property inspections from our Virginia Certified Horticulturist, we are able to identify pests and problems such as scale, mites, bagworms, lace bugs, and tent caterpillars. All applications are designed to prevent against these problems, and if, upon inspection, we find some, they are selectively treated in a timely manner. We have been successful in reducing pesticide usage by 75% while at the same time eliminating 100% of pests!

Beyond the bugs, we are also experts at identifying other cultural and environmental problems before they become widespread on your property. When necessary, prior to spring mulch, ornamental plants may require supplemental applications of N-P-K (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium). Should micronutrient deficiencies exist, we can propose a plan to correct those deficiencies.

Ultimately, all these preventative measures save you money in plant replacement costs!
