No New Posts Advice on treating azalea damage, please?
Just finished washing the roofs on 30 condominium units a couple days ago and received a call about some dead azaleas.  I went over to look at them and found some other azaleas that appeared dead as well at another building. As you can see by the pictures attached, the cambium layer on the stems is still b...

No New Posts Roof Runoff System
I may be overthinking this.  I haven't done many roofs and those I did had concrete on the ground in most cases. In my area there are a lot of roofs with 8/12 pitch and no gutters.  I am concerned about the runoff hitting the grass and burning the grass, bushes and plants.  I can tarp or use plastic, but conc...

Got some plant wash in Tampa and I love it!!! I run multiple crews occasionally and it has given me the added security of knowing my guys are going the extra mile in protecting from potential damage! Give them a sprayer full after the rinsing is done with instructions to not come back till it's empty. I am...

No New Posts Plant Wash Revives Plants

I tried out the Plant Wash and an Ace sprayer a couple days ago. Thought I would treat a bunch of yellow spots in my yard where our female dogs like to pee over each others pee.  Hit my plants too, while trying to use it up, but also hit my stucco house.  The purple doesn't want to come out.   My question for the...

No New Posts Glad I have Plant Wash for jobs like this!
Interesting picture, in one shot I've got four of the most bleach sensitive plants out there. Nandina, ferns, roses, and Boxwood. On jobs such as this it really pays to give extra attention to landscaping and use your plant wash even though you're only using a .5% mix on the vinyl.

This is a small flowering annual, may cost about 15.00 to replace but I am pretty sure that if we were to ki...

No New Posts Ordering plant wash next week.....but
I have been very careful cleaning roofs that have plants around the house. After about 20 roofs I haven't had a single problem. Last week I did a house with no gutters on the side of the house. I explained to my helper to never stop rinsing. It was a tile roof and the solution would come right off the roof. We...

After completing the entire job, truck is backed up and ready to go, I have to use the plant wash to go around the entire property again.  Pulling a hose along with me.  It sucks and is time consuming. Which raises a few questions,  1. Why can't i just broadcast by hand? Why do the leaves have to absorb if th...

Make sure the hose end sprayer is the correct type. DO NOT use the type that has a draw tube that extends into the cup. Use the type that uses water to...
