BERGEN COUNTY PLANT PROTECTION SERVICES
R&S Landscaping offers plant protection programs in Ridgewood, Wyckoff, Mahwah, and all of northern Bergen County NJ.
Our spring/summer and fall/winter plant protection programs have been developed as an environmentally friendly way to control landscape pests and disease problems. We believe protecting a plants’ health is a process of managing ecosystems to prevent organisms from becoming pests in your garden.
Pest & Disease Monitoring, Reduced Pesticides & More
We take into consideration current environmental conditions like Growing Degree Days (GDD’s), temperature, humidity, ect before any applications are made. This IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach reduces pesticide use while keeping your plants healthier. IPM includes many general aspects of plant management such as environmental control and cultural practices e.g. irrigation, fertilization, growth regulation.
Fertilizer & Deep Root Feeding
Our spring organic fertilizer application and fall deep root feeding ensure healthier and more pest resistant plants, thus reducing the need for pesticides through the season.
All treatments are based on Rutgers University recommendations and are updated annually. All applications are made by a licensed New Jersey applicator who is certified in turf and ornamentals.
Deer & Critter Repellent applications deter feeding. The liquid solution is applied to plants on which deer like to feast. For best results, the solution should be applied on a monthly basis.Our repellent is an odorless, 100% organic deer repellent and will not damage your plants or pose a threat to other wildlife.
Dormant Season Trimming
This is the only way to correct over grown shrubs. Plus, dormant season trimming helps trees and shrubs endure damage from severe winter weather, paving the way for healthy growth in the spring.
Organic concentrate is sprayed onto broad leaf evergreens in the late fall to provide protection from winter burn and dieback. This product is the best protection for your evergreen plants through the harsh winter months.
