What are Sustainable Practices and why are they important?

There has been a considerable amount of awareness within the landscape industry about the benefits of applying methods that promote sustainability. With water being such a precious resource here in the desert, sustainability has never been more important, but there are many other factors that property owners and managers should consider when it comes to their landscape maintenance. Here are a few reasons why Sustainable Landscape Management (SLM) practices are important:

Weed Control & Turf Care

Weed control should be established through the regular application of pre-emergent chemicals twice per year, with post-emergent done on an as needed basis. The timing of when to spray is important as well as the blend of chemicals to attack the weeds that grow during the different seasons. Our certified spray technicians are trained in the correct application process for the best possible results for your property or community.
