You Get What You Pay For…

Niwaki recently acquired a new organic shrub care client in the Fort Mill area. Over the past several seasons this client had used one of the large lawn care services to  care for her plants. During our first treatment our ISA certified Arborist noticed that her holly hedges were highly infested with waxy scale insects. Niwaki  inspects each plant at every visit to assure that insect and disease issues are discovered to eliminate issues like this example. Its obvious that the technician from the earlier service never inspected these plants. Niwaki immediately began a horticultural oil protocol to suffocate the scale insect populations. This non-toxic treatment will be repeated throughout the next few visits to eliminate this threat to our customer’s plants. In the conversation with our customer she stated that price was the driving factor in her hiring this first service. She was very upset to find that her plants had not been maintained properly. Her last comment was, “I Guess You Get What You Pay For.” At Niwaki Tree and Shub Care we strive to provide  the best possible value to our customers. That’s why we have certified arborists treating the landscapes of our customers.
