Lawn & Ornamental Pest Control


Jenkins Landscape offers highly qualified and experienced Pest Control Operators to treat your lawn and ornamentals. Our Pest Control Operators are very diligent in following the Integrated Pest Management practices. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) was developed to better serve the environment. The idea is not to eradicate the pest, but to reduce the population to a more sustainable level. Also, the main goal of IPM is to improve the health of the plants and lawn.

Annual contracts offered as well as interval treatments applied on an as needed basis. Plant health evaluation and a diagnosis to determine the issue whether it be disease, insect, or nutrient deficiency.

Priority treatments:
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for insects, disease, and weeds
Palm drenching
Deep root drenching of trees
Disease diagnosis and reports from plant material
Organic controls on fruiting trees and herb gardens
Soil analysis for nutrient deficiencies and pH balance issues.

Fertilization


Fertilization is the process of applying a large number of natural and synthetic materials, including: manure, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium compounds, spread on or worked into soil to increase its capacity to support plant growth. Plants require 16 nutrients, and Florida's soil does not supply everything for plants to thrive.

Fertilizer can be applied 2-4 times per year. Jenkins Landscape offers annual contracts to current and new customers. An appropriate fertilization program takes a minimum of one year to produce effective results, and recommended to prevent over fertilization. Over fertilization could lead to run off into our environment and drinking water. For larger properties we offer the Z-Spray which can spray and fertilize the entire lawn in a fraction of the time it takes with typical application equipment.

Since 2014, Florida requires all fertilizer applicators to have the GI-BMP certification and state license for fertilizer applications. GI-BMP (Best Management Practices) sets a standard for fertilization practices to be accurate and reduce the impact on the environment. Improper use of fertilizer can lead to leaching into waterways and natural environments.

All of our Maintenance Foreman and Fertilizer Technicians are GI-BMP certified. They are also licensed with Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) as commercial fertilizer applicators. More information on this can be found on the
Fresh From Florida website.

We are always looking to improve our skills by researching the latest and most efficient products available, and also to reduce the cost to our customers. Our mission is to not only be horticulturists, but stewards of the environment.
