As part of your new landscape project, drainage correction is always considered. Whether it is a major or minor fix, drainage will never be a concern when your new landscape is finished.
Rock is available in a wide range of colors and sizes. Fabric is placed underneath the rock to provide a weed barrier. Rock tends to be more permanent as well, not having to be replenished is an appealing feature. However, rock should not be applied to areas that need constant upkeep, as they may be pushed into undesired locations. Some rock can also reflect heat that can be detrimental to plants but when done right, rock can add a nice decorative element to your landscape.
Mulch is the most common choice used in planting beds and comes in a variety of colors. Mulch can add a softening element around hardscaped areas. Because mulch decomposes, plastic or fabric is not needed. We recommend using Preen, which is a granular product, twice a year to prevent new weed growth. Although mulch needs to be top-dressed every few years, it retains moisture and adds nutrients to the soil as it decomposes.
Edging serves an important function in the landscape. It provides a barrier between your lawn and plant beds. Each type of edging has their own aesthetic qualities bit all provide a sufficient barrier between your lawn and plant beds. Our landscape designers will discuss with you what edging is best for you and your landscape.
