Proper preparation of planting areas and beds is a crucial part of the success of your newly planted shrubs, bushes, trees, and ornamental plants. We install and prepare new beds, including soil preparation and retaining wall installation. If your current beds need some TLC, we are happy to revitalize them to encourage healthy growth.
Retaining walls protect soil from erosion and provide leveled planting areas. Sloped areas are generally not the best place for new planting because water carries healthy soil away during storms. Custom-built retaining walls level out these areas to prevent soil from being stripped from plants and provide an attractive way to elevate beds for displays.
Our mulching and ground cover installations provide another aesthetically pleasing method of protecting plants and soil. Mulch insulates the soil beneath it from freezing temperatures, giving your plants a fighting chance in the winter months. It also helps in the absorption of moisture to keep soil healthy. Mulch eventually breaks down and needs to be refreshed annually for optimum protection to maintain its look and color, while rock ground cover should be refreshed every other year.
We provide the following mulch and ground covers:
