Landscape Installation

The Design Fee covers the cost of the time, effort, and ideas involved with producing a plan in which a bid or estimate for installation can be produced.

Shrub Beds
For shrub beds the procedure is to remove existing vegetation (grass, old shrubs, etc). For removal of grass, a herbicide or sod cutter is used depending on time of year. Once this is accomplished a bed line is defined with a shovel and four to six inches of organic matter is incorporated by tilling material into existing ground. Beds are then graded in order to allow proper drainage. Plant material is then installed at proper depth so as to not impair growth by being to low or high based on grade of bed. Once plant material is installed a pre-emergant is applied to reduce weed growth and then a slow release fertilizer is applied. Finally an adequate amount of mulch (pine straw or shredded hardwood, etc.) is applied.
