Landscape Bed Maintenance
Every properly serviced yard requires Landscape Bed Maintenance. Well-maintained landscape beds can make a significant difference in enhancing the appearance of your property. We provide the expertise you need to achieve a striking look by either installing a new landscape bed or refreshing an existing one.
Besides a natural bed with uncovered dirt there’s typically two alternatives in bed topping materials, wooden products or rocks:
Mulch is a popular choice for landscaping beds for several reasons. It not only adds a polished and finished look to the landscape beds but also provides a range of functional benefits. Some of the benefits are moisture retention, weed suppression, and temperature regulation. However, it is important to keep in mind that mulch does not last forever and requires periodic maintenance.
Over time, the color of mulch can fade, and it can begin to break down, losing its beneficial properties. This can detract from the overall beauty of your landscape beds and can create an unappealing and messy appearance. Adding a fresh layer of mulch on top of the existing layer is a simple and cost-effective solution to revitalize your landscape beds. By doing so, you can restore the attractive look of your landscape and preserve the functional benefits of mulch.
In addition to maintaining the appearance of your landscape beds, adding a mulch ring around trees can help protect the trunk from damage caused by lawn mowers or trimmers. This protective barrier helps to prevent the accidental damage that can occur during routine lawn maintenance tasks. This is particularly important for young trees, whose trunks are more susceptible to damage.
When choosing mulch for your landscape beds, there are several options to consider. Bark chips is a popular choice for its natural appearance and durability. Shredded mulch appeals with an organic look and economical price point. Wood chips can also be a good option, providing a more uniform look and an affordable price point. Alternatively, some homeowners opt for decorative mulches, such as dyed mulch or rubber mulch, to create a unique look in their landscape beds. Our team can provide guidance on the best mulch option for your specific needs and preferences.
Please note, some products may dislodge very easily into other areas especially with high winds and/or downpours and with leaf cleanups.
Rock beds are a popular option for landscaping due to their durability and low maintenance requirements. However, over time, they can catch all kinds of debris such as leaves, twigs, and other organic matter. This can cause them to look unsightly and detract from the overall appearance of your landscape. Additionally, even well-installed rock beds are not immune to weed growth, and sooner or later, weeds will find their way into your landscape beds.
The problem with weed growth in rock beds is that it can be difficult to remove. Weeds can grow in between the rocks, making it difficult to pull them out by hand. In addition, weed seeds can easily blow in from neighbouring areas, causing the problem to spread. This can make maintaining the appearance of your rock beds a time-consuming and frustrating task.
Fortunately, we are here to help. Our experts can provide you with advice on how to keep them looking pristine. This may involve using an application of liquid weed killer or manually removing weeds as they appear. We can also provide you with tips on how to keep your rock beds free of debris, such as using a leaf blower or rake to remove leaves and other organic matter.
