Your garden, just like your home, needs regular maintenance. Not only to ensure the health and longevity of your plants, trees and shrubs through regular and plant specific pruning and fertilization but also to fend off pesky insects and unwanted pests. You and your family also spend time outside enjoying your garden and when it comes to selling your home, curb appeal is also vitally important. These then are all valid reasons why you need to invest in landscape maintenance from VIGORO. With 40 years of designing and maintaining Cayman gardens under our belts, with an educated team that has an intricate understanding of what maintaining and managing a garden really is, we are in the position to give you dependable advice.
Let's look at fertilizer for example: You would never use the same paint for two vastly different applications. In the same way you should never use the same fertilizer for a variety of purposes. For example it’s a pointless exercise to apply palm fertilizer to a lawn or lawn fertilizer to blooms. All plants, hedges and trees grow thanks to just the right mix of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in the soil. It is therefore vitally important that you choose a fertilizer with the right blend of the three components to maximize growth on flowers, lawn, vegetables and trees.
Weeds and garden pests happen. It’s a fact of landscape design and maintenance. Now before you panic and start spraying, consider this; how you design and lay-out your garden is the first step to battling invasive pests. VIGORO considers this fact right from the get go when we plan to place pest resistant plants or insect repelling plants in strategic places among neighbouring shrubs and trees.
It is also important that you understand that pesticides often carry a bad name. Think of Neem Oil for example. In today’s market this naturally pressed oil from the Neem Tree has been used to fight pesky mealy bugs and other pest species. If you, like many other eco aware homes in Cayman, are not sure which, if any, pesticides to use, please ask VIGORO as we take your pest problem, your children, your pets and your lifestyle into consideration before we spray anything.
