R&S Landscaping offers plant health care services in Ridgewood, Wyckoff, Mahwah, and all of northern Bergen County NJ.
Our plant health care program has been developed as an environmentally friendly way to control landscape pests and disease problems. We believe plant health care is a process of managing ecosystems to prevent organisms from becoming pests in your garden.
We monitor your property on a monthly basis and use preventive measures to maintain the health of your trees and shrubs. Our trained specialist will thoroughly evaluate any disease, fungus or pest problem, ID it and the stage of its life cycle before treatment is applied. Consider it insurance on your investment.
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.
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

applications are made by

applicator who is
