Mulch is usually replenished annually with a fresh 1-1.5 inch layer. While a base of 1-3 inches is desirable, thick layers and mulch piled high against trunks and plantings can be detrimental and should be avoided. Benefits of mulch beyond aesthetics are water retention for plantings, freeze protection, and weed suppression, all of which are important to the variable climate of Grand Rapids, Michigan. We can deliver and install hardwood mulch, color enhanced mulch, and cedar mulch!
Weed management of landscaping beds is performed for aesthetics and to reduce or eliminate competition for moisture, nutrients and sunlight between weeds and desirable plantings. It is performed biweekly during the spring and summer months by means of pre/post-emergent chemicals, hand pulling, and/or cultivating methods. Healthy/dense ground covers and plantings also serve as a good weed management tool, as do coverings such as mulch, rock, stone, etc.
Garden and Landscape Edging
Edging can be done around your gardens and landscaping either mechanically or chemically using Round-Up. Beds should be edged minimally once per season for aesthetics and to ensure bed size is adequate for plant and turf health, care, and protection.
