Many customers call us when they see their shrubs turning brown because they assume they are dead. While sometimes brown shrubs could mean that a shrub is dead, this isn't always the case. Sometimes you may be overwatering your shrubs, causing them to turn brown. Or you may have over-fertilized the shrub, which caused them to burn. In some cases, you may even be underwatering your shrubs.
If these reasons aren't the problem, your shrubs could be suffering from a disease. One common disease that attacks shrubs and other greenery is Verticillium wilt. This fungus causes shrubs to wilt and turn brown. This fungus can cause a shrub to die quickly if it isn't treated. Unfortunately, this disease can spread and cause damage to other plants in the yard. So it's a good idea to get it under control as soon as possible.
Not all shrub damage is irreversible. Sometimes our experts can get to the heart of the problem and save your shrubs before an infestation can turn bad. We provide disease treatments and pest control measures to rid your greenery of disease and pests. However, if we inspect your bushes and determine that they aren't salvageable, we recommend shrub clearing.
