Fall Landscape Maintenance: Feed Your Shrubs & Trees! [VIDEO]| Rye, NY

Jay dives into one of the most important tasks on your fall landscape maintenance checklist: feed your shrubs and ornamental trees!

Always choose natural-source products for an organic landscape. We look for the OMRI-approved label. Plants must also be fed according to their pH preferences — some plants prefer a more acidic environment, some prefer more alkaline, and some are happy right in the middle. We collect soil tests at each property and send them to Rutgers to ensure we know exactly what base level pH, organic matter and nutrient content are in the soil.

Pesticides are NEVER part of our holistic land care program. They kill indiscriminately and are especially troublesome for beneficial insects and pollinators. Synthetic fertilizers are a “cheap fix” of nutrients, but do nothing to improve the health of the soil, and the soil microbes that develop partnerships at plants’ roots. Synthetic fertilizers can actually weaken plants’ immune systems, not to mention their impact on eutrophication of freshwater bodies.
