Landscaping Tips and Tricks

To make quick work for some landscaping projects around your home property, here are a list of our top favorite recommendations!

Landscape Edging

While many homeowners may be inclined to use a plastic or wooden barrier to separate between flowers or plants, and perhaps a walkway, consider using the natural edge of the plant itself.  Doing this will provide an easier way to update your landscape and greater flexibility based on how your plants grow.

Grass Clippings

If you use a mulching lawnmower, you can save approximately 30% of the fertilizer you may otherwise have to use.  This is much better for your lawn compared to bagging the grass clippings.

Starter Fertilizers

Whether you plant a flower, shrub, or small tree, be sure to use a starter fertilizer.  A low-nitrogen product is often best and the purpose of these products is to give your plants a boost when being planted.  

Mulch – Bulk (truckload) vs Bagged

Don’t always compare price alone when the decision is between buying mulch, stone, or rock in either a bulk load, like a truckload, or bagged.  It is often best to buy bulk if your project can be completed in a short amount of time and the truckload is placed near your project.  If you will be moving around a lot throughout your landscape, bagged products may be more preferred due to the ease of maneuverability.
