Bark Mulch

Bark Mulch is usually replenished annually with a 1-1.5 inch fresh layer. While a base of 1-3 inches is desirable, thick layers and mulch piled high against trunks and plantings can be detrimental and should be avoided. Benefits of mulch beyond aesthetics are water retention for plantings, freeze protection and weed suppression.

Mowing, Trimming, and Edging

Proper mowing includes using professional equipment set at the appropriate height with sharpened blades and done with regular frequency and in alternating directions. This promotes a healthy, thick, well rooted, weed free turf, which is aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable in numerous ways. Trimming of obstacles and edging cement surfaces provides the finished/manicured look. Visit our lawn care page for more information on lawn maintenance in the Lansing MI area.

Aeration is accomplished by coring, which removes plugs of soil from the ground. This allows water, air, nutrients and grass roots to penetrate deeper thereby, providing a healthier lawn. These plugs of soil when left on the surface help decompose and beneficially alter the composition of the thatch layer.
