  • Selection: We can help choose the right trees and shrubs for the specific site conditions, such as soil type, sun exposure, and climate.

  • Placement: Proper placement of trees and shrubs is crucial for their long-term health and aesthetic appeal. Landscape designers consider factors like mature size, spacing, and visual balance when determining placement.

  • Installation: Trees and shrubs are planted according to industry best practices to ensure proper root establishment and minimize transplant shock. This involves digging appropriate-sized planting holes, amending soil as needed, and watering thoroughly.

  • Maintenance: Newly planted trees and shrubs require regular watering, mulching, and pruning to promote healthy growth and establishment. We offer ongoing maintenance services to ensure the long-term health and vitality of planted specimens.

  1. Garden Bed Installations in Milford, CT:

  • Design: Wes create garden bed layouts that complement the overall landscape design and fulfill the client's preferences and goals. This may include considerations such as plant selection, color schemes, seasonal interest, and desired functionality.

  • Preparation: Before installation, garden beds are prepared by removing existing vegetation, loosening soil, and incorporating organic amendments as needed to improve soil structure and fertility.

  • Installation: Plants are carefully selected and installed in the garden beds according to the design plan. Planting techniques vary depending on the types of plants being installed, but typically involve digging appropriate-sized holes, amending soil, and spacing plants according to their mature size.

  • Mulching: After planting, garden beds are often mulched to help retain moisture, suppress weeds, regulate soil temperature, and improve soil health. Mulch also adds a finished look to the garden beds and helps define their boundaries.

  1. Mulching Services in Milford, CT:

  • Material Selection: We can advise on the best type of mulch for the specific application, taking into account factors such as aesthetics, function, and local availability. Common mulch materials include wood chips, shredded bark, pine straw, and organic compost.

  • Application: Mulch is applied to planting beds, around trees and shrubs, and in other landscaped areas to a uniform depth. Care is taken to avoid smothering plant stems and to leave a small gap between mulch and tree trunks to prevent moisture-related issues.

  • Benefits: Mulching provides numerous benefits, including conserving soil moisture, reducing weed growth, moderating soil temperature, improving soil structure, and enhancing the overall appearance of the landscape.

  • Maintenance: Over time, mulch may break down and need replenishing. Landscape maintenance services often include periodic mulch top-ups to maintain the desired depth and appearance.
