Common Plant Diseases in Our Area

Years of experience in the industry have made us incredibly familiar with the plant diseases prevalent in our area. We understand how local climate and conditions can foster specific diseases, impacting plant health and the vibrancy of your garden.

Here's a closer look at some of the most common diseases we encounter and our expert approach to managing them effectively:

  • Grubs and root diseases: Often found beneath the soil's surface, grubs can severely damage the root systems of your plants. Our targeted treatments aim to control grub populations without disrupting the natural balance of your garden.
  • Anthracnose: This fungal disease causes dark, sunken lesions on leaves, stems, flowers, and fruits. We carefully remove affected areas and strategically apply fungicides to prevent its spread.
  • Powdery mildew: Characterized by white, powdery spots on leaves and stems, powdery mildew thrives in both dry and humid weather. We use environmentally friendly fungicides and cultural practices to manage this disease.
  • Black spot: Common in roses but affecting a wide range of plants, black spot leads to leaf loss and weakened plants. Our team focuses on preventive measures and effective treatment applications to control black spot.
