Who is IGP?
We are Integrated Growth Partners (IGP), a company specializing in landscape application services for the Green Industry.
What are you spraying on my shrubs?
Your landscape maintenance provider has contracted us to apply plant growth regulators to the shrubs on your property. Plants that receive this service will be more drought-tolerant, healthier, and maintain the desired look longer. You may also observe darker green foliage and the appearance of more flowers.
Will I notice anything after my shrubs are treated?
Often, you will not notice anything after it is applied. In some plants, particularly plants with highly glossy leaves, there may be a slight white residue on the leaves after application. This residue will wear off with rain.
Will this harm my plants?
No. In many cases, plants appear greener and have more flowers.
Is the application safe for people and pets?
There are no reported cases of adverse effects on people, pets, or wildlife. Research shows that there is minimal risk to people, pets, and wildlife when applied according to the label by licensed professionals. The effects of this service are highly specific to processes found in plants.
Does this service replace trimming or shearing?
No. Our service enhances the work of your landscape maintenance company by reducing unsightly overgrowth. This maintains the well-manicured appearance of your shrubs for a longer period of time.
What if I see residue on my windows or sidewalk?
Occasionally we may get some overspray on the windows or drips on sidewalks. We immediately clean this off, but sometimes we may miss it. If you would like us to come back to clean it up, we would be happy to. Contact us, and we will get a crew out to address the situation.
What are the benefits of this service?
IGP’s service helps your landscape maintenance contractor keep up with the high demand of shrub maintenance, avoiding unsightly overgrowth. Your plants will benefit from improved health, better tolerance to stress, and in some cases, improved appearance of flowers. Growth control also results in less noise and air pollution from power shears and reduces the amount of clippings that need to be disposed of. Additionally, this helps keep workers safe by reducing the use of power tools and time required on ladders.
