Our Methods to Protect Your Plants
We offer several methods of protecting your winter plants, depending on the needs and type of shrub, tree, or plant needing assistance.
- Wilt Pruf: This anti-desiccant can be applied to select evergreens that commonly suffer from winter windburn. This product is made from 100% pinesap, which is diluted. It helps the trees retain moisture and helps them avoid being affected by winter windburn.
- Burlap: Burlap wrapping is used based on the location of your plants. Plants that are close to walkways, driveways, or the street, can be affected by salt spray or winter sun and wind. Wrapping the plant in burlap will help reduce damage from these elements and help protect the health of the plant.
- Trunk Sleeves: Trunk sleeves are white plastic sleeves that are used to protect trees throughout the winter. These sleeves are imperative for young trees or trees with smooth bark that is easily susceptible to winter sunscald, frost cracks, and rubbing from deer antlers.
Damage to Plants During the Winter by Deer & Rabbits
One constant winter problem for homeowners can be damage done to plants and small trees by rabbits and deer. Deer can especially be a problem in the areas in and around Brookfield, Pewaukee, and Wauwatosa when droughts hit in the summer and their usual supply of food and water have drastically declined. When this occurs, deer start becoming more aggressive and take more liberties to come into the yard of homeowners to look for food and moisture.
The Use of Netting & Fencing to Keep Your Plants From Being Damaged or Eaten by Animals
In the winter, we offer netting and fencing as a solution to save your plants from damage done by animals. Netting is a super fine material that is not visually obtrusive and is used to keep deer damage to a minimum. Netting is wrapped around select plants, usually landscaping plants that attract deer and rabbits. Another option for keeping your landscaping plants from harm is by using fencing to cage in select plants that are favored among rabbits and deer as a winter food source. The fencing keeps the animals from damaging or eating your plants.
Scheduled Bobbex Deer Repellent Treatments to Deter Landscape Vermin
Throughout the year, deer repellent applications may be a service that is needed for your property. Large wooded areas tend to be the home of landscape vermin like deer, rabbits, and rodents. While physical barriers can work throughout the winter, using a spray can also do the trick to keep the problem at bay.
We use Bobbex deer repellent during scheduled maintenance visits. This product is a commercial product that homeowners will not be able to find at a big box store. Bobbex is one of the most effective deer repellents on the market. We recommend Bobbex to clients due to its numerous benefits, which include:
- Repels deer and small mammals by both taste and odor
- The product is completely safe for people and pets
- It does not wash off from rain snow, or irrigation
Bobbex deer repellent is an ongoing treatment that needs to be applied about once every 7-14 days during the spring, and less frequently during the summer. As your plants grow, it is important to treat them so that deer are deterred from eating them.
Clients can purchase Bobbex directly from us to use in between scheduled visits. We have ready-to-use spray bottles or concentrate for sale.
