James LaMarche, a long time Pro Care customer, contacted us wanting to freshen up his backyard. He wanted to transform his backyard into a more useful, beautiful space….a place for friends to gather & enjoy Boise’s beautiful seasons. Our Construction Manager, Merlin, worked closely with James in designing the perfect landscape for his needs & his budget. The project had a bit of everything: large tree removal, demo, decking, fencing, pavers, plants, rock mulch, sprinkler system, & a fire pit. Here’s the project as it played out….

We schedule your installation with consideration to important dates so you can enjoy your lights for as long as possible. Our teams are the best trained in the Treasure Valley, attending classes in our training room & hands-on field demonstrations to ensure they understand principles of electricity, design, & safely working at heights.

You can tell a lot about a business by the care of its facilities & grounds. Lush, healthy, well-manicured landscaping says “we care enough about our business to project a professional, quality image before you even step inside our doors.” Companies & owners who put this kind of care into their properties tend to attract the very best clients & the highest caliber employees. Case in point: Wells Fargo Center in Downtown Boise.
Pro Care has had the distinct opportunity to care for Wells Fargo Center for over 20 years. We’re often told that tenants enjoy stepping out of their offices & into a true oasis of beautiful flowers, stunning shade trees, & lush green lawns.
Why do we love commercial landscape maintenance so much? Because we are a small business, too, & image matters. We relate closely to our clients & understand how to put a thoughtful service plan into action on their properties.
Pro Care is commercial landscape maintenance & our work is the very definition of “curb appeal.” When you’re considering your landscape options this year, please contact Pro Care. Estimates are free & you’ll benefit from our thoughtful approach to landscape maintenance.
If your sycamore tree is making your yard look like October in the middle of June, you’re not alone. It’s a common fungal disease called “anthracnose.” Symptoms are yellowing leaves that shrivel on the limbs & eventually fall. Like all plant diseases, it requires three things to develop:
- A susceptible host (sycamore).
- A pathogen (anthracnose).
- Favorable conditions for disease development (rainy weather when buds emerge; warm spring temps).
The first two conditions are certainties every year. Sycamores are susceptible & anthracnose spores are waiting on branches & twigs in early spring. Unknown is whether or not it will rain when new leaves emerge. Rain splashes spores through the canopy & onto tender new leaves. It’s also unknown if temperatures will favor the disease or help inhibit it. The good news is that new leaves often push through by July & the tree almost looks normal by mid-summer. However, anthracnose can damage twigs & branches, causing deformities known as “witches’ brooms.”
Pro Care offers specialized cambium injections for current full-service clients on our Tree/Shrub Care Programs. Treatments made this year would be for suppression next year. The optimal timing for cambium injections is approximately 1-month before the first frost. Our Certified Arborists are ready to help!
