When you create a landscape design for your yard, you make choices based on what plants are most likely to thrive and add beauty for years to come. It is important to have experienced guidance as you make these choices as this can allow you to make beneficial selections based on your soil type, the amount of annual rainfall in your area, natural light in your yard and other details specific to your situation. However, there are times when, despite your best efforts, you may notice signs that the shrubs and landscaping in your yard do not look as they should.
Sometimes, factors beyond your control can impact the health of the plants in your yard. Disease, grubs, abnormal weather patterns and other things can eventually cause some of your shrubs, bushes and trees to look less-than-healthy. The following are signs of potential problems with your landscaping:
- Noticeable white, powdery substance on leaves
- Wilted or blackened leaves on the plants
- Changes in the color of the leaves
- Stunted growth
- Overall browning of the plant
These signs could indicate a range of problems, including diseased shrubbery, pest infestation, growth of fungus, root problems, lack of drainage, poor soil conditions, blight and more. There are a range of treatment options when your landscaping doesn’t look healthy, including pesticides, fertilizers, removal of infected plants and more. A careful examination of your yard, the affected plants and other factors can reveal the specific treatment plan that will be most effective for your individual situation.
