We might be known as industry leaders in commercial landscaping, but we have more than just excellent green thumbs. It’s always been our mission to keep our customers’ property healthy, attractive, and pest-free, which is why we’re also certified commercial pesticide applicators.
Pesticides are dangerous, especially in the hands of people ill-equipped to handle them. Companies that apply restricted-use pesticides need to be certified by the Environmental Protection Agency in order to learn safe and effective techniques and procedures. Becoming and staying certified is a rigorous process. Companies must:
- Have enough knowledge of application and safety to pass certification exams.
- Pass annual state inspections and allow state officials access to their records.
- Complete continuing education and re-examination in order to maintain their certification.
- Maintain a high level of insurance.
Of course, every step is essential. It keeps companies accountable in an effort to protect the environment, commercial properties, visitors and residents. At SFM Landscape, it’s our mission to deliver a comprehensive service with both certified arborists and certified pesticide applicators on our team.
