Dethatch (Power Raking)

    * Removes the layer of thatch (dead grass) that lies above the root level. Heavy thatch prevents good root growth and absorption of nutrients needed for a healthy lawn, it's recommended to over seed the lawn after thatching

Core Aeration

    * This service loosens compacted soil allowing vital nutrients to reach the root system and is important to a healthy lawn

Mulch

    * Mulch is available in many colors and choices.  We use a premium hardwood (triple shredded ), but we can bring samples of different colors and grind for you to choose from

While Spring is the best time to add mulch to your planting beds, you can add beauty to your landscape anytime with a fresh layer of mulch.  For a professional and finished look, we also recommend a clean bed edge and a weed preventive along with the mulch.

While we all know that mulch can add beauty to your beds, there is more to it than just good looks.

Mulch Around Trees

Trees do not have fertilization on their on in an urban environment. In the forest, they have tons of leaves to rot, break down and actually fertilize everything.  When we add mulch around trees, it will eventually break down and decompose which in turn fertilizes the plant.

 

Another thing to point out is that grass and trees share the same nutrients such as iron and nitrogen. When grass is right up next to your tree, it is  fighting with the tree for what little nutrition there is in the ground, making it harder for a tree to survive.  This is especially important after transplanting a new tree.

When we mulch we remove the grass and edge the flower bed or tree, it elimanates the grass from coming through the mulch and also stops the fight for nutrition.

Mulching in Fall

Most people mulch once a year and that is usually in spring.  This makes sense because your yard is fresh and you want it to look great once your plants, bushes and flowers start to fill in.

But it is important to also add mulch in the fall so that there is about 3 inches of mulch around your plants.  This new layer of mulch will keep your plants insulated in the cold weather.  When a frost kills a plant it is because the roots were not protected and allowed to freeze.  But the mulch acts like a blanket, protecting your trees from the cruelties of winter as well as holding in precious water.
