Professional Dormant Oil Application

Many fruit trees become dormant towards the end of winter. However, they are ready to flower and bear fruits in early spring; during the same time, harmful insects, like mites, prepare to invade your plants. At Sunshine Landscape, we can protect your fruit trees from insect infestations by applying dormant oil to them.

The landscaping team you can trust | Sunshine Landcaping in Boise, Idaho

Dormant oil can be a petroleum or vegetable oil-based substance that suffocates insects and their eggs nesting in branches, so your fruit tree is safe to grow and flower. Our dormant oil spraying service will prevent your apples, plums, quince, crabapples, gooseberry, pears, and currant bushes from insects. Once applied on the branches, the oil penetrates the insects' outer shells, denying them oxygen until they die of suffocation.

Not all trees require dormant oil. Only a knowledgeable landscaping expert knows which trees may benefit and the recommended time to spray the solution. While dormant oil might not completely eradicate pests from your fruit trees, it helps eliminate the larger insect population, leaving you with a more manageable problem. Sunshine Landscape can visit your property and treat your deciduous trees to kill destructive pests and their larvae.

Pest Elimination

Neglected grass can harbor disease-spreading pests and potentially dangerous animals. Let us care for your grass to destroy the breeding ground for bugs, rodents, and reptiles.

Billbug Application

Billbugs can wreak havoc on your lawn by feeding on your grass to the extent of creating unsightly bare patches. The adults dig holes into the grass where they deposit their eggs. Upon hatching, the larvae devour grass stems from the inside and continue down to the roots, causing the turf to die. Sunshine Landscape is equipped to help you overcome billbug infestations. If you are struggling with these pests, we can perform a site inspection and treatment. We can combine billbug application with lawn fertilization if your grass requires a nutrient boost.

Fertilizer Applications

Over time we've discovered that many property owners are not keen on maintaining trees and shrubs, especially in nourishment. Most people are quick to remove the leaves and organic matter that would have become a nutrients source. At Sunshine Landscape, we understand the importance of supplying all plants with the minerals and nutrients they need, and we are equipped to care for them appropriately. We can apply specific fertilizers specially developed for your trees' and shrubs' nutritional requirements on your commercial property.

A slow-release tree fertilizer will give your shrubs and trees the necessary nutritional boost to grow healthy and withstand drought and pests. The beauty of working with our trained landscapers is that we know when to apply tree fertilizer for excellent results. We have two tree and shrub fertilization phases annually:

Fall Tree Fertilization
  • Recover the soil nutrients lost during summer
  • Stimulate root growth in winter
Spring Tree and Shrub Fertilization
  • Support optimal tree growth during the high-growth season
  • Provide essential nutrients to help the tree fight infection
  • Green up the leaves and keep them fresh through summer till fall
Learn More

Turf fertilization is not such a straightforward task as it appears. It requires a well-thought schedule for the best results. Our team at Sunshine Landscape has developed the following program for the conditions of our Treasure Valley community.

  • Initial Spring Cleanup: Application of granular fertilizer and pre-emergent on all turf areas
  • June: Second granular lawn fertilization
  • August: Third granular turf fertilization
  • October or November: Final granular fertilization

We can easily adjust the schedule to suit your needs.

At Sunshine Landscape, we use slow-release fertilizers with an estimated life of six to eight weeks. These products maintain a lush turf and are superior to competitors that offer a quick, impressive greening that doesn't last. We know that fertilization is vital to have a healthy-looking lawn and strengthen the root structure. A well-established root network improves water and nutrient retention and prolongs your turf's life.

We discuss your needs with you to develop a fertilization solution that matches your lawn care needs. If necessary, we administer turf fertilization and a pre-emergent solution at once.

Lawn Aeration

Aerating your yard can make a long-lasting improvement in the quality and appearance of your lawn. Lawn aeration refers to the process of puncturing holes into the soil to let your grass receive nourishment more easily. It enhances soil drainage and intensifies fertilizer penetration for healthier turf.

  • Development of healthier and durable grassroots
  • Encourages new root growth and development
  • Breaks up dense and highly compacted soil
  • Better water and air circulation in the ground
  • Enables better fertilization
  • Improves drought resistance
  • Improves insect resistance

Sunshine Landscape advises our Treasure Valley landscaping clients to have their lawns aerated in spring or fall. Without the right equipment, though, lawn aeration can be tiresome and time-consuming. Hire our equipped landscapers for quick and proper soil aeration.

Mowing Service

Let us improve your commercial property's curb appeal with our weekly mowing service by professional landscapers. A manicured lawn that receives regular mowing creates a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere.

Beyond cosmetic benefits, our mowing service removes weak leaves, allowing healthier grass to shoot for a lusher lawn. Short turf allows for even absorption of nutrients, water, and sunlight, minimizing the chance of uneven growth and patches. It also helps to destroy small inconspicuous weeds.

The best mowing months are April through November when the days are quite warm. If we cannot access a region with a mower, we cut the grass using a line trimmer. We bag the clippings and periodically leave them on the turf to control evaporation and add natural nutrients to the soil. Our mowing service includes planter bed inspection as well as weed and garbage debris removal.

Pruning Service for Trees and Shrubs

Pruning involves trimming or thinning branches, leaves, and dead matter from trees and shrubs. It is considered healthy maintenance for trees and shrubs since it allows them to channel energy in growing healthy branches rather than exhausting it to maintain weakened or dead limbs. Pruning also reduces the probability of tree branches breaking off and hurting people or damaging property. It's also a little known mode of pest control!

Typically, we recommend the first pruning exercise when your trees reach ten feet in height. Our team will advise you when to schedule the next appointment based on factors like the plant species and size.

Since tree pruning can be complicated and dangerous, you should consider using an expert crew with the right safety gear, experience, and equipment to trim your trees and shrubs safely.

Weed Control

Weeds often germinate rapidly, and if unchecked, they can dominate your lawn and overwhelm your plants in a matter of days. If you decide to pick them, you might waste countless hours pulling them out, even with a helping hand. Sunshine Landscape can apply a pre-emergent to suppress weed growth, saving you time and money. A pre-emergent is a weed control method used to thwart unwanted plants' growth before becoming a problem. The herbicides contained in the residue create an invisible barrier on the soil surface that prevents weeds from growing soon after germination.

For this weed control method to work effectively, you should know the right time to use it. At Sunshine Landscape, we can inspect your yard or planter beds and apply a pre-emergent at the opportune moment and in the correct measurements. Our solution significantly cuts your need for chemical and manual weeding throughout the year.

Foliar herbicides are pest control chemicals applied to a crop's leaves and stems. The solution gets absorbed and transported to all parts of the plant for action. If you have aesthetic shrubs in your yard, a foliar application may be more appropriate than soil-applied products since it lands directly on the target.

Sunshine Landscape recommends foliar application solutions when you don't want to contaminate the soil with chemicals. It works well with perennial herbs and woody shrubs. Hire our team to repair your garden or yard trees and shrubs using this effective technique.

We administer foliar herbicides in Treasure Valley in mid-summer. However, we can vary the timing based on the weather conditions in the year and plant-specific needs.

Broadleaf weeds are opportunistic plants that lay in your garden soil, waiting for favorable conditions for growth. With ideal conditions, they invade bare spots and where your turf is thinning out. Apart from robbing your lawn of its beauty, the broadleaf weeds steal the nutrients, water, and sunlight meant for your grass.

Sunshine Landscape can help eliminate broadleaf weeds from your yard effectively. We know how to stop even the most challenging varieties of broadleaf weeds that grow in Boise, like chickweed, clovers, plantains, and dandelions. Our team uses a successful three-step strategy for broadleaf weed control and removal that involves:

1) Weed Identification

Our landscaping professionals know the broadleaf weeds that can invade your yard in the Treasure Valley. Once we identify the wild plant invading your turf, we apply the appropriate weed killer for the species.

2) Lawn Inspection

Our team can examine your lawn to uncover the reasons a given weed has thrived. We will assess soil nutrient levels, among other factors, and learn the spots to target with treatments.

3) Weed Treatment Application

The last step is to apply the right weed control treatment. Our landscapers can do so while maintaining zero or little contact with your ornamental plants.
