Now that your space has been beautifully landscaped, it is important to maintain it. Professional landscape maintenance is the easiest way for you to ensure your property is in top shape all year long.
Ongoing maintenance is important for healthy plants and trees. Unsightly weeds and fungi not only look bad, they steal soil nutrients, water, and sunlight that your landscape plants need to grow properly. Without ongoing control efforts, they will take over. Regular weeding will avoid this problem and will keep plants growing well.
Your area may also contain some invasive plant species that could interfere with the look and health of your landscape if they aren not controlled. These can destroy areas where preservation of the natural habitat is paramount.
All the plants on your property will benefit from regular mulching and fertilizing to keep the soil healthy and help them grow. Different species require different soil conditions and amounts of fertilizer to thrive.

Simply put, mulch is a protective covering that keeps the soil in your garden cool and helps it retain up to 80 percent of its moisture.
Mulch will also aid your plants during seasonal weather, retaining moisture in the soil during summer heat and insulating roots against winter freeze. Generally, applying mulch can be done anytime during the year.
