Q: How much mulch do I need? 
A: To determine yards of mulch needed use the following:

Measure the area where you want to mulch in feet. Multiply the length and the width to find the square footage of the space. Multiply the square footage by .25 (3") Divide the resulting digit by 27 to get the approximate number of cubic-yards needed.

Calculating by Bag Use:

A cubic yard equates to approximately 27 cubic feet. Most prepackaged bags of mulch contain 3 cubic feet of mulch; you need nine bags of this size for cubic yard of coverage your yard requires.

Q: How thick should I mulch? 
A: A 3" depth is recommended.

Q: How often should I re-mulch? 
A: Mulch in spring & again in the fall. Mulch may be raked or turned over to regain color levels & to aerate the surface.

Q: How high should I mow the Grass? 
A: Keep your grass under 4", never cut it shorter than 2½" as the lawn will not have as deep a root structure to support it.

Q: When is the best time for watering?
A: It is best to water your lawn during the early morning. In areas of low humidity & high daytime temperatures it is best to water your lawn during the evening.

Q: What design tips do you have? 
A:

  • Before starting your project, you should explore other lawns and gardens. Take a look at residential, commercial and public gardens.
  • Always consider the placement of trees. Trees are an undervalued asset to any garden, providing shade and structure all year round.
  • Plant flowers, vines and different ground covers to provide focal points to areas. Flowers can also add nice splashes of color to dull areas.
  • Be sure to pay close attention to your yard's climate and plant accordingly. Since different plants and flowers require different climates, it is very important to make sure you can provide that climate.
