Flower Bed Prep

1. Removing existing material

The existing beds are cleaned out. This includes removing weeds and unwanted vegetation. This may be accomplished by hand or with machinery.

2. Soil Amendments

In some cases, fertilizer, compost, or additional soil may be added and tilled to provide the plants with additional nutrients and water retention.

3. Weed Control

Most installations call for a commercial grade weed tarp. This will eliminate approximately 90% of weed growth in the future.

Plant Placement and Installation


In most cases, there will be a design provided to the client before the project begins. This enables proper planning for irrigation, lighting, and other featured that need to be installed before the plants.

We always encourage our clients to join us in placing the plants on their properties. If any changes need to be made, this is the time to make them!

Planting the plants!

We have a saying- "Right plant, right place".

Along with plant placement, it is very important how each plant is planted! Paying attention to the root ball, height of planting, mulch/pinestraw, and backfill should not be overlooked!
