MULCHING

Mulching is the time honoured way of saving water and improving your garden soil naturally. Nature does it automatically as leaves drop and grasses die off, but in the garden this process has traditionally been stopped as gardeners like to see cleared earth all dug up and looking fresh and new. The only trouble is that it needs a lot of water to prevent it from drying out and to keep those plants growing. Once you start to mulch the garden this problem will be solved and so will the weed problem, to a great degree.

You can use many different materials for mulching; cut grass and weeds without seeds, wood chips and even gravel. It should be noted that mulch is not the same as compost, which is dug into the soil to give nutrients to the plants and improve the soil. Mulch can be made up from organic or non-organic materials. Pebbles are non organic, while anything that was once growing is organic. Mulch such as lawn clippings and straw will rot down fairly quickly and need to be replaced. Wood chips will rot down, but the process takes a lot longer. Meanwhile they do the job of protecting the soil from erosion, drying out and weed growth.

Gardeners these days are starting to realise the value of mulching their gardens, especially during dry times. You can purchase mulch of various kinds and also make your own from lawn clippings, pruning and fallen leaves. Contact us for more information.

WHAT WE DO

STUMP GRINDING

Stump grinding is the solution to the problem of stumps in the lawn.The mechanical grinder takes all the hard work out of the job and you will soon find that the stump you have been tripping over is gone.

HEDGE TRIMMING

Trimming the hedge will make it grow thicker. If it is not trimmed properly all that top growth will mean that the middle growth is not thick so it will not look very attractive, nor will it give privacy. Not all hedges need to be trimmed often.

TREE PRUNING

Tree pruning can often prevent many problems as well as making your tree more appealing. Trees that are pruned will sprout many leafier branches down low so that they cast shade on the lawn that you can sit in on a hot day.
