Your landscape is a living and breathing ecosystem and, just like any other facet of life, needs food and nourishment, as well as protection from its natural predators, if it is going to survive.
At Three Brothers Landscaping we have state licensed pesticide applicators on staff who can safely and knowledgably identify and correct pest, disease, or nutrient deficiency problems in your landscape. IPM is an integral part of any maintenance service in order to ensure a healthy and well-protected landscape. Proper scouting and effective, fast treatment can save you a tremendous amount of time and money down the road.
Ash trees can be a valuable part of the landscape. A properly cared for ash tree can increase property value, provide environmental benefits and reduce electricity costs by shading a home.
The Illinois Department of Agriculture and its Emerald Ash Borer Program believe systemic insecticidal treatments of ash trees, in response to or in preparation for Emerald Ash Borer infestation(s), can be a very useful component of a management plan. Insecticidal treatments can be an effective management strategy for high numbersof ash trees when integrated with the removal of known infested trees and continued monitoring of ash health, as a measure to potentially preserve and/or prolong the life of apparently yet unaffected ash trees. The department believes that by focusing treatment efforts on ash trees that are not showing signs and symptoms of EAB infestation, and which are in overall good condition, and are desirable trees to preserve, there will be a better chance of successfully preserving those trees through a treatment program. Illinois residents must consult their village public works department to determine any ordinances or policies that may be in place before committing to a treatment plan for ANY tree within the village. Additionally, residents are urged to consult with a certified arborist to assess the condition of an ash tree being considered for treatment, to ensure it is a viable candidate.

Spring up and stay green with a healthy diet and maintenance schedule for your turfgrass!
Our lawn care programs are specifically designed to promote superior lawn color, density, uniformity, and health. In an effort towards being an environmentally sound company all applications are done in granular form, with liquid used only for weed control. We provide a 5-part, seasonally timed program in the following order:
- Early to Mid-Spring: A slow release fertilizer is applied to help awaken the lawn from its winter dormancy. Included in the fertilizer is a pre-emergent control for crabgrass and other annual grassy weeds.
- Mid-Spring/Early Summer: Our second application is a combination of slow and quick-release fertilizers. Micro-nutrients are added to promote deep and healthy root growth. Our first round of post-emergent broadleaf control for dandelions and other turfgrass weeds is also applied at this time.
- Summer: A summer blend fertilizer is applied with included grub control to prevent the damage of grub worms in the lawn
- Late Summer/Early Fall: Our fourth application of slow-release fertilizer with micro-nutrients promotes recovery from the summer stress of heat and drought. Our second application of broadleaf weed control is also applied with our fall application
- Late Fall: We apply a slow release fertilizer to insure sufficient nutrients assist your lawn through harsh winter climates and green up early in spring.
A regularly maintained fertilization program is an important management practice used to determine turf grass quality. Fertilizer will affect the general health of the plant. The healthier the plant is, the better the turf grass stand can compete and tolerate competing pests, like weeds, disease and insects. A high quality dense turf will naturally out-compete weeds and decrease or even eliminate the need for herbicides. Also a greater number of insects can be tolerated before an insecticide application is needed. Call us today to schedule an appointment to evaluate your lawn.
Tree and Shrub Care
Help your little baby bushes put the bottle down and be manly thick and healthy plants!
Our tree and shrub care program helps to promote and sustain their beauty and health all year round. They are not only essential elements to your landscape but to the community as well. Trees, shrubs and vines add texture, structure and color to your home as an important focal point of your landscaping. Caring for these elements of your landscape will include as needed:
- Deep Root Feeding
- Targeted Trunk Injection
- Foliage Protection
- Foliar Sprays
- Horticultural Pruning
For trees and shrubs that go untreated, the effects of certain diseases are irreversible. Many mature trees end up dying as the result of late diagnosis that could have been prevented. To help prevent disease or treat currently diseased trees and shrubs and to prevent further spreading, contact Three Brothers Landscaping today for a free consultation.
