Soil & Mulch

Everything Starts With The Soil

Soil is the backbone of your landscape. While it doesn’t get the visible eye the color plants or vibrant green lawn attracts, your soil does a majority of the work in keeping your landscape plants, trees and shrubs thriving on your property.

We can provide you with a no-cost soil analysis and plan of addressing specific soil needs, which will help improve turf quality throughout your landscape.

Spruce Up Your St. Louis Commercial Landscape With Mulch

This application—like a new coat of paint—almost instantly washes away the broken down, faded leftover mulch from last year and puts a new stamp on your property. It’s like adding décor to a room or jewelry to an outfit—it’s a finishing touch that makes your property stand out.

Mulch’s Many Benefits

Not only can a layer of mulch give your property that polished, professional look, but it also comes with a host of practical benefits that give it true staying power in the landscape.

Hate weeds? Mulch is a natural weed-preventer. Weed seeds need sunlight to germinate, so mulch helps keep those pesky weeds at bay.

Mulch also acts as insulation that keeps the soil around your plants cool on hot days and warm on cool nights. This can be especially helpful at times when temperatures tend to shift rapidly, such as during the fall months.

Good soil is your plant’s best friend. Not only can mulch safeguard soil moisture and regulate soil temperature, but it also can help prevent erosion by keeping soil in place. Have heavy traffic on your property? Lots of people walking on lawn or landscape areas or heavy rainfall can compact the soil. Mulch can help relieve this by buffering the impact. As mulch breaks down, it also releases organic matter, supplying the soil with nutrients to improve your soil’s texture over time.
