Our Beautiful, vibrant plants that are grown here in lee county thrive in our tropical climate and they can really be the difference that makes your landscape stand out. The reality is though, that most of our common plants are commercially grown and are not native to our soil type.
Due to this, it takes a lot of outside help to keep our landscapes thriving and looking healthy all year long.
So, what does a tree and shrub program look like at City Green Environmental?
Most of our shrubs and ornamentals needs frequent applications of fertilizers, insecticides and fungicides. Due to out very alkaline sandy soils, nutrients do not hang around very long in the root zone of your plants, therefore frequent applications are required. Soil amendments such as sulfur are also needed to keep soil in your landscape beds a healthy living environment for your shrubs.
Liquid fertilization: these are foliar applications of minor and macro nutrients ( iron, manganese, sulful, nitrogen, etc.) for rapid uptake
Granular fertilization: granular fertilization is a great way to provide your plants with a constant flow of nutrients. Granular fertilizer is wrapped in a polymer coating that is broken down with water in order to give your plants a small feeding each time you water your lawn or it rains.
Fungicide: Fungicides are imperative in our hot and humid climate which make up the perfect conditions for foliar eating diseases that can take over your landscape if the proper protection is not in place.
Insect control: for 12 months out of the year, there are multiple species of insects that want to suck the life out of your beautiful plants. At City Green Environmental we apply a combination of systemic and contact insecticides throughout the entire year to always keep your landscape free of Aphids, Mealy bugs, Scale, White fly etc.
Palm Tree Injections
Here in Lee County we have many different types of palm trees and a majority of the trees are not native. This means that they naturally do not do well in our soil type and because of this, constant feeding is required to maintain aesthetics.
Fertilization: Each of your palm trees get a custom blended fertilizer injection, which includes iron, nitrogen, manganese, magnesium, sulfur, humic acid, kelp and nitrogen promoting fungi. This promotes growth, color and overall health and vigor of your palm.
Insect control: All palms get a high-quality systemic insecticide to cure and prevent White Fly, Palm Weevils, Leaf Minors, Red Date Scale etc.
