Frequently Asked Questions About Landscaping

Gardening in the shade

Gardening in the shade is no different, or any harder, than gardening in sunny areas of the landscape. It only requires more care in choosing plants and more imagination in placing them. Assuming that you already understand the varying levels of shade (light shade, partial shade, full shade, etc.), choosing plants that are compatible to these light requirements shouldn’t be a problem. However, there are also other considerations when selecting plants, such as soil.

What is the best time to mulch?

Most people make the mistake of mulching too soon.  Although everyone is eager to start gardening in early spring, it is best to wait until the ground has warmed.  Typically mid- to late May would be best.  Just make sure that the ground is not too cold, or that temperature will be insulated all season long.

What type of residential clients do you work for?

Anyone who truly wants a nice landscape and knows the true value of caring for a beautiful home and property.

Who will work on my property?

Well trained, supervised personnel with the proper equipment. All employees wear a company uniform.
