More about our process:

1: MARKING THE BED

1 Using a long rope and spray paint, we’ll contour and mark where each new bed will meet the lawn.

2: Hard Edging

2 With sharp, heavy duty edging shovels, we’ll create a clean, streamlined “hard edge” where the grass meets the planting beds, leaving a three-inch deep trench to act a catch basin, preventing mulch or pine straw from spilling onto your grass or hardscape and from interfering with line trimming upkeep.

3: Tilling The Soil

3 Once the beds are formed, we’ll till the areas to loosen the soil. This promotes soil health by mixing up nutrients and allows new plantings to root easier.

4: Adjust The Soil

4 During installation, we’ll amend the soil in your planting beds with a combination topsoil and organic, nutrient-rich compost to ensure the best possible soil for the long-term health of your investment.
