Deer Control

We all love having nature right outside our front door. However, nature loves it too. Deer and rabbits greatly appreciate the plentiful bounty you provide for them each year. Put an end to their free buffet by enlisting Hertzler and George to protect your plants. Our program uses an environmentally safe, OMRI listed, dual action smell and feed deterrent system that protects your plants for up to three months!


How does it work?

The treatment coats targeted plants with a natural latex based solutions that contains putrescent eggs, hot peppers, and garlic. This protectant will work on treated plants for months once dried and will teach deer to go elsewhere, unless they like their hostas with old eggs and hot sauce (sounds like my uncle).

Does it stink?

This product that Hertzler & George uses is formulated in a way that humans cannot easily detect, unlike other products on the market.

How often do I need to apply the treatment?
We recommend a minimum of three times a year with more recommended for deer and rabbit infested areas or for plants with high growth rates. The treatment times correspond with periods when deer forage for unconventional food sources (winter and spring) and during periods of high growth (late spring). Additional applications are recommended during the summer for extra protection and if you plant annuals in your landscape.

Do I need to do anything?

The treatment once dry requires no additional upkeep. Please note, the treatment protects what it coats. Please prune your shrubs before a treatment or just before the next application.

What else can I do?

Repellents are just part of a solution for discouraging deer. Physical deterrents such as netting may be required for smaller plants, as well as landscaping in ways that deter deer from eating your favorite plants.

Bed Transformation!

Once again I am very pleased with the excellent work H&G did on my property.  They turned a section of my ugly front yard with invasive Bermuda grass into a beautiful and simple flower bed with mulch and many small bushes.  This striking transformation adds greatly to the house’s curb appeal.  I look forward to them coming back out this fall and replacing the rest of the front yard with sod and removing all the undesirable Bermuda grass.  Brian was easy and pleasant to work and plan with.  He always responded to my questions immediately.  Jon and his crew were likewise very nice, efficient, and perfectionists in planting my new yard.  Many thanks and accolades to H&G once again!

Drainage Help

I would like to let you know how happy we are with the service we received recently.
We had a drainage issue in our yard and did some research, learned your company was highly recommended and decided to see what your company could do.
From the first contact, we had a great experience as the lady that answered the phone was very nice. She put us in contact with Brian Kemp who we also liked from the start, and we made an appt for him to come and take a look. He was right on time, very thorough, and just a very nice fella who we both liked right away and had confidence in. We really liked how he gave us options and listened to what we wanted. We scheduled the work, it was done right on time, and it looks great! Brian was even nice enough to do a video walk through for us afterwards as we weren’t in town. Just great service from start to finish! Thank you Brian

We will definitely be back with more projects in the future.

Thank You

Just a short note to thank you for all the help you gave us with our garden this year. Jonathon again did a wonderful job doing the bed detailing this summer, as did the mulching crew in the spring. I don’t know the name of the woman who supervised the mulching crew, but I want to let you know how professional she was. In fact, the entire crew was pleasant to work with, especially to experience the care that they took with their work.

Thanks also for being so flexible with the changes we requested for our mowing schedule.

Always Helpful

Brian came out last week to try to assess a problem we are having in our yard.  He arrived on time, was extremely courteous and took a considerable amount of time analyzing our situation.  While he was unable to reach a solution, he did take the time to research and recommend another business that might be able to help us.  That kind of customer service will make us more likely to call on Hertzler & George if other issues arise.  Thanks, Brian!
