  • Mow high for lawn health

    I don’t worry about my lawn so much; I see all the weeds, yellow dandelions and purple violets as food for our growing lambs.

  • Mulch matters

    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.  When done properly is can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature.  These things can be achieved using a variety of materials but which type of mulch suits your needs best?
