We will evaluate your property for invasive species and choose the right technique to eliminate them. Very often it is one of the first steps in site preparation for installing a new garden.
Invasive species threaten the diversity of the native plant communities. Because invasives have advantages in reproduction and/or surviving, very often they completely replace native plants, altering and, in the extreme, causing irreversible changes in the ecosystem.
In the garden, invasives add to landscape maintenance by spreading themselves out of designated areas and by crowding out other plants. Sometimes they cause such deleterious effects as producing toxins lethal to some animals and plants, altering hydrological patterns and soil chemistry. Garlic mustard, for example, over a period of time may produce enough toxins to kill a nearby tree.
