HELP!!! I have PORCUMBENS JUNIPERS, NOT VARIEGATED TYPE THOUGH. . I BOUGHT MY HOME JUNE LAST YEAR. THE JUNIPERS WERE DOING GREAT. ALONG THE DRIVEWAY, IN THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE AND BOTH SIDES OF THE HOUSE. ALONG THE DRIVEWAY THERE WAS VINCA GROWING BETWEEN ALL OF THEM. JUST GORGEOUS!! THE PROPERTY NEEDED TO BE MAINTAINED SO I HIRED A LANDSCAPE COMPANY. I ALSO HAD A GORGEOUS MINIATURE JAPANESE RED MAPLE IN THE FRONT OF THE HUSE. I HIRED A REPUTABLE LANDSCAPE COMPANY . ALL WAS INCLUDED IN THE MONTHLY PRICE, SUCH AS MAINTENANCE , FERTILIZING AND CUTTING THE LAWN. BY SEPTEMBER MY JAPANESE RED MAPLE WAS IN TROUBLE. IT STARTED TO DISPLAY LIGHT BLEACHED TIPS AND THEN THE LEAVES CURLED AND FELL OFFF. IT WAS RIGHT AFTER THE COMPANY FERTILIZED, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS. THE MANAGER OF THE COMPANY SAID THE MY JAPANESE MAPLE WAS PROBABLY STRESSED FROM THE LACK OF WATER AND TOO MUCH SUN. HMMMMM...DURING THE LATTER PART OF THE YAER LAST YEAR I STRTED TO NOTICE THAT THE VINCA BETWEEN MY GROUND JUNIPERS ALONG THE DRIVEWAY WERE ALL DISAPPEARING. HMMMMMM. THIS SPRING ALOT OF MY VERY ESTABLISHED GROUND COVER JUNIPER PROCUMBENS ARE TURNING BROWN ON TOP AND DYING ALONG THE DRIVEWAY AND IN THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE. I TOLD THE LANDSCAPE COMPANY THAT THEY MAY NO LONGER USE ROUND UP ON MY PROPERTY BECAUSE THEY ARE DAMAGING MY PLANTS. MY JAPANESE RED MAPLE NEVER RECOVERED AND I HAVE TRIMMED IT BACK DRASTICALLY IN THE HOPES THTA IT WILL RETURN. THE LANDSCAPE COMPANY SAYS THEY DID NOTHING WRONG. ALL I KNOW IS I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY I AM LOSING MY JUNIPERS , VINCA AND MY RED JAPANESE MAPLE. HELP!!! YES IT IS TRUE THAT I DO NOT HAVE A SPRINKLER SYSTEM BUT THIS PROPERTY WAS WELL ESTABLISHED WHEN I BOUGHT IT. IT JUST NEEDED TO BE CLEANED UP AND MAINTAINED. SHPULD I BE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER COMPANY ??? ANY
...IDEAS, SUGGESTIONS, FEED BACK APPRECIATED. HELP:(
