About Disease Control
While keeping plants healthy is essential to preventing maladies such as powdery mildew and black spot, often we need to give their defenses a boost with treatments that offer protection and cures for these common plant diseases. Like with any garden additive, however, the options are many and often can be confounding to the property owner. A landscape professional can be your partner in determining not only what diseases are present in your garden, but how best to fight them.
A comprehensive approach to disease control in the garden is one of the special services a landscaper can provide to a property owner. Selection of the right product is critical to preserving the health of plants while fighting common diseases in the garden. Neem oil, for example, is a natural insecticide especially appropriate for treating young plants that might be more sensitive to other, more commonly used treatment methods. When dealing with chemical control of plant diseases in the landscape, it is important to find the best match between plant, product, and malady.
Routine plant maintenance is a first step in preventing disease. Keeping your shrubs, trees, and grasses watered, fertilized, and properly pruned ensures their health, making them better equipped to fight disease than plants that are ailing and struggling to thrive. But healthy plants too can succumb to pests, mold, and other problems, and when they do it’s best to ask a professional to diagnose and treat the issue. A responsive and targeted approach to disease prevention and treatment can help plants overcome disease and ensure their beauty for years to come.
