At Quality Care we offer year-round maintenance for your trees and shrubs, including fertilization, insect and disease management, pruning, and mulching. Your trees are valuable investments that require proper care to be safe and to provide a lifetime of enjoyment and environmental benefits. While we can’t prevent catastrophic weather events from damaging our trees, we can help them grow as strong and healthy as possible to resist extreme conditions. Our on-staff arborists, certified by the International Society of Arboriculture, stand ready to consult with you about your trees.
Four feedings per season: spring, early summer, late summer, and fall. Phosphite fertilizer promotes the strength and vigor of your trees and shrubs.
Many of our trees are planted in urban soil that has been disturbed, usually during construction or landscaping, and that soil is frequently deficient in organic matter, making it difficult for trees to absorb nutrients. Fertilization with beneficial mycorrhizae fungi helps trees develop the strong root systems necessary to survive harsh conditions, and makes nutrients in the soil more available to the roots. Quality Care will feed your trees with a slow-release liquid fertilizer fortified with micronutrients injected 3” to 5” into the soil under low pressure. Quality Care can also feed your shrubs with a granular fertilizer two or three times per year, depending on their specific nutritional needs.
The arrival of the Emerald Ash Borer to our area is devastating our Ash population. While not every tree is a candidate for treatment, we offer a preventive control for this pest that is effective and lasts for up to 2 years. Our arborist staff can help you determine if your Ash is healthy or not, and can recommend a treatment program. We can also diagnose and treat for other insect infestations, including Japanese Beetles, Zimmerman Pine Moth, and others that may lead to damage or death of a tree.
Our trees are vulnerable to a wide range of diseases, many of which are treatable. Some diseases may only cause unsightly spots and discoloration on leaves, while others may lead to the rapid decline and death of a tree. We can help to diagnose and recommend a course of treatment, when appropriate, for your ailing trees. We encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as you see something concerning your trees.
We specialize in preparing young trees for a lifetime of strong, healthy growth through proper pruning techniques to develop a sturdy structure. Quality Care can prune up to twenty feet, and we concentrate on pruning deciduous trees during dormancy to reduce the likelihood of disease transmission. Pruning in the winter also allows us to see the physical structure of the tree better and allows it to put its energy toward callusing over the pruning cuts in the spring.
We can also prune and shape your deciduous and evergreen ornamental trees and shrubs at the appropriate time during the growing season.
A mulch cover of about 2”-3” in planted beds will help to preserve moisture, enrich the soil as it breaks down, and help suppress weed competition. Properly mulching trees will help retain moisture, moderate temperatures in the root zone, and keep mowers away. It looks great too! We keep a supply of double processed shredded hardwood bark mulch, in a natural dark brown color, and dark brown dyed mulch for pickup, delivery, or we can install it for you.
Irrigation systems are investments in the long-term health and beauty of your lawn and landscape that require routine maintenance to function properly. In the Midwest climate, with annual freeze/thaw cycles and wildly fluctuating rainfall, environmental stresses can wreak havoc on your underground sprinklers.
Quality Care’s irrigation technicians are trained to start your system in the Spring, checking for proper operation, sprinkler coverage, leaks, timing, and backflow prevention. In the fall we will shut off the water supply, blow out all lines with compressed air, and power down the controller.
Our technicians are lawn care experts and will monitor the condition of your lawn, landscape, and irrigation. Our technicians are certified to perform mandatory backflow prevention tests.
We provide the clean-up and removal of leaves and seasonal debris from beds, lawns, curbs, and building entrances.
We offer gutter inspection and cleaning, keeping them free of leaves and other debris. Regular maintenance reduces the chance of leaks and pest infestation.
High-quality work done with care. We provide a stress-free experience from start to finish that is both easy and convenient.
I would recommend Quality Care to anyone looking for a company to take care of their lawn. I’ve used several companies and have seen the best results with Quality Care at a competitive price. Their technicians are friendly, always close the gate when finished, and blow the driveway and sidewalks clean when finished. Their online account management is easy to use and very convenient. Also, I like the fact they email you the day before your service will take place and always ring the doorbell when they arrive and ask for permission. Very professional.
We purchased our first home in spring of 2017. We were having weed issues, primarily crabgrass and various other weeds. After several chemical applications from Quality Care the crabgrass beneath our deck was dying and the yard looked fuller in a summer where it was pretty dry/hot. The applications are similar in cost to going and buying the chemicals yourself and doing it yourself. To me, it is worth it and would recommend Quality Care.
I have had several different lawn care companies over the years with many problems in burning my grass to constantly needing to recall for weed control. I am happy to say that I have found my forever lawn service with Quality Care. The lawn service has been amazing as well as their customer service. Thanks Quality Care!
Quality Care is the perfect name for this business. They do quality work and care. I have over two acres that they do the weed control for so much less than my previous company. I know my yard is in good hands.
