Good Plants Gone Bad

Use these seven questions to figure out what's wrong with any plant. 

  1. What is the plant?
  2. What is normal for the plant?
  3. What are the common problems with the plant?
  4. What do you see that looks abnormal?
  5. What is the overall health of the plant?
  6. What are the site conditions?
  7. What kind of care is the plant getting?

Seal the Deal!

Florida weather is hard on outdoor wood structures. Protect your investment by having Dickerson Landscaping seal your deck, arbor, fences, and outdoor furniture. Sealing at lease once a year will keep your outdoor living space in good shape. How do you know if your wood structure needs to be sealed? Try the splash test. Sprinkle water on the wood structure, if the water absorbs and turns the wood a darker color within 5 seconds it is time to seal your wood structure. Sealing helps prevent water damage, helps maintain the natural color of the wood, and helps resist mildew and UV damage. 

 

Lawn cares and concerns

Extreme weather has a dire effect on your lawn. In the heat of the summer some areas in North Florida are under serious drought pressure. Chinch bugs are damaging St. Augustine lawns, and watch for brown areas that continue to spread. Keep our eye open for spider mites on annuals, the palm bud weevil on palms, mole crickets, and sod web-worm.
