Plant Health Care

At Your Personal Gardener (YPG) we utilize Plant Health Care (PHC) to maintain and improve your landscape’s appearance, vitality, and help aid in keeping your trees safe for enjoyment and use in and around your home landscape. We use the most cost-effective and environmentally sensitive practices and treatments available. YPG’s Plant Health Care involves routine monitoring, preventive treatment, and a strong relationship between our arborists and you the property owner.

Trees are the most dominant landscape feature in your homes landscape, they share this area with all of the lawn, gardens, and any hardscape or permanent structures on your property. All of your landscapes plants are connected with one common resource: the soil. The roots of trees, shrubs, perennials, and your turf grass, all intermingle and compete for nutrients and water. One single mature trees roots may extend well into your lawn, gardens, and hardscape. Treatments applied to a tree, such as pruning and fertilizing, can influence the vigor and appearance of your remaining outdoor landscape.

YPG’s Arborists have the knowledge, experience and training to detect and spot many potential tree and shrub problems before they become life-threatening or hazardous. Not only can our Arborists detect potential and actual disease and pests for your trees and shrubs but can also make recommendations, such as species selection and placement for future planting.

Lawn and gardens can be replaced in a little as a day's worth of work. But a mature tree can take a lifetime or more to replace! Our arborist will provide you with information about your trees, shrubs, and landscape to help inform and educate you, so you can rest assured you're making the best possible decision for your trees and landscapes long term success, health, beauty, and vigor! Your Personal Gardeners Plant Health Care programs are tailored to the needs of each one of our customers tree and landscapes needs!
