Selecting TruNorth Landscaping to Maintain Your Landscape Beds
Overall, either rock or bark mulch can be a good choice for your landscape. Both offer several different varieties to choose from that can complement your home.
Because of the general benefit to plantings, we tend to recommend mulch as the best choice to fill landscape beds. While spreading mulch into landscape beds is not rocket science, it is a whole lot of hard work, and there is a method so that your landscape beds end up looking neat and tidy vs. bumpy and lumpy. Too much mulch can endanger trees and can create the dreaded ‘mulch volcano‘. We also pay a little bit extra for premium mulch that you cannot find at a local hardware store. Our mulch takes significantly longer to fade due to sunlight and does not have added ‘filler’ like many of the brands that are sold in bags around town.
In addition to premium mulch installed in an aesthetically pleasing way, we also put down a pre-emergent product that helps to prevent weeds. This pre-emergent really helps prevent those Spring and early Summer weeds that will have you doing tons of work weeding beds. We also re-create a natural edge to all of your beds which helps them to look crisp and fresh.
While mulching isn’t rocket science, it can be labor-intensive, especially when you are already tackling your spring clean-up tasks. If you are looking to complete a spring clean-up yourself, use the checklist found in this blog. To learn more about the maintenance services we offer, check out our services page. Many clients typically bundle mulching services into their spring clean-up service.
