Home Orchard Care

We specialize in helping homeowners grow fruit trees and berries by providing expert help with pruning, grafting, pest and disease management, planting and design.

Whether you want to learn how to care for your backyard orchard yourself, use our year-round organic management services, or just have access to expert advice, we help you install, maintain and repair fruit-bearing trees and shrubs for maximum health, yield, and environmental conscientiousness.

With our help, your edible landscapes will thrive, adding value to your home, bringing fresh produce to your kitchen,  and boosting your health.

Maintenance

To yield their best crop and stay healthy for years, most fruit trees require knowledgeable routine maintenance.

We can teach you what you need to know to prune, protect, fertilize and harvest your fruit-bearing trees and berries throughout the year.

Or you can leave it to us, and we will come by for carefully-timed regular service, accounting for weather conditions and seasonal variations. With our regular service there are no tools for you to maintain or sprays and amendments to store or dispose of. We’ll keep an eye out for early signs of problems and treat accordingly to minimize any damage to your trees or loss of crop.

Taking the guess work out of it. We’ve got the expertise to know what’s most likely to help in your specific situation, and will go the extra mile to maximize output and health, from prevention of winter damage to treatment of nutritional deficiencies.

And did you know? Certified organic fruit from the market is typically grown using copper and sulfur sprays which, when not sprayed at the correct time, can harm our pollinators and aquatic life. We time the use of our organic sprays to maximise efficiency and minimize exposure and runoff. Additionally we use physical barriers (fruit socks and fabrics)  to limit the amount of spraying needed to protect fruit throughout the growing season.

We ensure that the products and methods we use aren’t just good for your family and your trees, they are good for the earth.
