Every home gardener wants to control pests that can damage plants, but what is the best way to do this? With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to know how to handle yard pest control.
One of the first things you need to decide is whether you want to use organic pest control methods or chemicals. There are many advantages to organic pest control, particularly the fact that it does not put chemicals into the soil or water supply. On the other hand, many organic pest control methods are not as effective, particularly in the short term, as chemical pest control. Most homeowners try to strike a balance between organic methods and limited chemical pest control for the best results.

There is one further option that can help home or business owners avoid the “pest problem”: working with a professional landscape designer.
Landscape designers offer the chance for homeowners to choose the right plants for their beds and yards. A good landscape designer can help you find plants that are naturally pest-resistant.
