Shrub & Tree

Our Shrub & Tree services have proven to promote and maintain healthy plant growth and development. This rigorous preventative management program, along with proper IPM (Integrated Pest Management) practices, will minimize insect and disease damage. Throughout the year we thoroughly inspect for a wide variety of insects and diseases that commonly affect ornamental shrubs and tree plantings. In the event we find insect or disease activity nearing damaging levels, we will apply controls as necessary.

At Carolina Creations Landscapes, Inc., we consider ourselves stewards of the environment. Therefore, we prefer to use products that are less likely to have questionable effects on the landscape and beneficial insects. Our preferred method of control interrupts plant damaging insects and the proliferation of plant disease, before reaching threatening levels. Through such practice we can significantly reduce the need for more curative controls.


Pruning carolina creations

Our Pruning Services allow each client the opportunity to choose the desired level of service that will meet his or her expectations. Our staff will provide recommendations to assist each homeowner in choosing the appropriate level of service based on horticultural need.

We generally recommend a minimum of two (2) pruning services annually. Our Winter Structural Pruning, which is typically performed during the period of early December thru early March, allows an opportunity to remove excessive growth, crossing branches, dieback, and generally thin out the plant in an effort to promote and allow new growth in the spring.

Additional pruning services can be provided multiple times throughout the growing season and are generally performed anytime from May thru September. Seasonal pruning is necessary to remove excessive growth. Also, plants that flower on old wood (i.e. Azaleas) will need to be pruned after they flower to facilitate new buds for the


Mulching Services carolina creations

Mulch is not only aesthetically pleasing but also serves many important functions. Proper mulch application affords your landscape the ability to naturally retain water and moisture in the soil. It also is a successful way to aid in the suppression of weed growth, foster healthy plant development, and control erosion.

There are many different mulch options available on the market today. The most popular options can be placed in two general categories, Pine Straw and Hardwood Mulch. Both of these options have numerous varieties to choose from depending on preference of color, purpose, and cost.

We strongly recommend a minimum of one (1) application of natural material each year. Although, depending on your specific site requirements and your personal tastes additional application may be necessary. Let Carolina Creations Landscapes, Inc., assist you with your selection.
