As all plantings get bigger, they need to be pruned for both aesthetic and health reasons. When pruning shrubs, we practice both shape pruning for an exact defined look and selective hand pruning giving a more natural look. Sometimes when shrubs have been neglected during growth (very common), it is necessary to rejuvenate them through selective pruning and thinning.
Nothing sharpens the look of a landscape like fresh mulch. Besides appearance, having the right amount of mulch is critical to the health of your landscape plantings. It helps keep moisture in the ground by the plants root system, while organically decomposing over time giving nutrients back to the soil. Beds should be topped off each season with a thin layer rather than mounding up the beds every few years. Three to four inches is usually desired in most beds. Mulch also helps prevent weeds from germinating and becoming eye soars. To further prevent weeds, pre-emergent weed control should be applied before installation.
There are three methods we use to control weeds in mulch and rock beds. Hand weeding, pre-emergent herbicide treatments, and post-emergent herbicide treatments all have their time and place. Most often the best way to control weeds is by using a combination of these three methods or by choosing the most appropriate based on conditions and customer needs. Non-chemical options are also available.
This herbicide is applied to mulch and rock beds to prevent weed seeds from ever germinating. It is usually applied in the spring, but can be applied any time during the growing season. We usually only make one application per season with this service.
This herbicide is applied to existing weeds in mulch and rock beds. Depending on your demands for keeping your property weed-free, the number of applications for this service varies. We usually set up a schedule (monthly or bi-monthly) for applications to all your landscape beds.
This service defines the concrete borders of your lawn and gives it a clean manicured look. Turf overgrowth (both grass and soil) onto concrete is natural and can take away from the overall appearance of your lawn. Edging removes this overgrown turf and gives your lawn a crisp, clean appearance. The more often you edge, the less overgrowth there is. This makes is easier for us and is why we offer edging as a monthly service at drastically reduced rates. It also keeps your edges looking good all season, rather than once or twice a year.
We have the same commitment to your gardening needs, whether you have an intimate space or an extended yard. Seasonal pruning, sculpting shrubs and trees can enhance a well manicured landscape design. With proper fertilization, the right mixture of nutrients will promote a successful garden.
Fall fertilization aids in a successful spring garden. Mulching adds not only great aesthetic value, but in weed control as well. Mulch is used to cover the top layer of soil to protect, insulate, or decorate it, to prevent weeds and retain moisture.
Spring time is also the optimum time for proper re-introduction of plants. A common error in homeowner plantings is over planting, resulting in overgrowth. Proper landscape design may appear sparse after initial installation, but reasonable spacing will reveal a lush garden in no time.
