Frequently Asked Questions
1Who will work on my property?

3Are you insured?

4Why should I have mulch on my property?
Mulch provides many benefits for planting when done correctly. For shrubs and ornamental trees, a mulch base of 3"-4" is recommended. It helps to keep weeds in check, retains moisture in the soil, and adds organic matter to the soil as it decays.
5What type of mulch do you sell and install and what is the cost?
We sell the following brands, from least to most expensive: Double Hammermill, Dyed Mulch, Cedar, Hemlock and Licorice Root Mulch. Pricing is based on site conditions and quantity.
6Is it wise to use a fabric or plastic weed barrier under my mulch?
We do not recommend the use of fabric or plastic weed barriers under your mulch. These products will only prevent weeds temporarily. Plastic materials smother the soil and do not allow for the necessary exchange of air.
