First, do no harm!!!

Below is a picture of a newly installed landscape. It was taken at a Virginia hotel. Mistakes in design and plant selection abound. Pesticide Applicators tasked with maintaining such areas must take care to prevent environmental and plant damage caused by inappropriate applications.

Remember, you can’t fix unworkable designs and installations. But make sure you do not misapply pesticides when maintaining such areas.
