DEFINITION

Mulching

Mulches provide a natural dark brown canvas beneath plant arrangements as well as retain ground moisture and breakdown into soil humus providing the best growing environment for plants.


Pruning/Trimming  

Pruning is usually considered an art form; some way to enhance or stylize the appearance of either a specimen or group of plants. Pruning and trimming should be done to make sure your individual plants work in harmony within your landscape setting.


Fertilizing  

Plants need nutrients and water. Regular fertilizing will promote new growth and health. We apply granular and water soluble treatments.


Pre-Emergent Application

Pre-emergents such as Preen help prevent seed germination from occurring. We carefully apply pre-emergents in the right spaces to prevent weed competition in garden beds.


Edging  

We believe garden lines should be simply cut into the soil dividing lawn from garden. Minor edge maintenance may be required to maintain neatly flowing garden lines which should highlight the gardened spaces.
