Planting

One of the most important aspects of landscaping is planting the right trees, shrubs, and plant life for your property. Your choice of plants can affect the aesthetics, irrigation, and value of your home. Finding the perfect natural elements and properly planting them can be tricky. That is why at Outdoor Living by Mr. Mulch, we are proud to offer comprehensive landscape design and planting services. Together, we can create the ideal outdoor living area for you and your family! 

What Planting Services Do You Offer?

Our team at Outdoor Living will take care of every part of the planting process, from start to finish. To begin, we will visit your property to get an idea of your space, hardscape features, soil type, and current landscape. From this point, we will make recommendations on the best types of plants to incorporate into your yard.

Strategically-placed trees and shrubs will shade your home and reduce your energy bills in the summer. They will also improve irrigation and help prevent erosion. Choosing the right trees and shrubs for your property is essential to ensure your plant life will thrive in its new environment. To do this, we will test your soil, review drainage options, and make adjustments as needed.

Why Should I Hire a Professional Planter?

Planting can be a difficult, time-consuming process – especially if you plan on incorporating trees and large shrubs into your landscape design. There are a variety of things to think about before choosing the type of plant life for your yard, such as your yearly climate, soil type, rainfall, irrigation, etc. Additionally, finding the right placement for each plant can be complicated. 

Before planting something new, you will need to take into consideration, including:

  • The plant’s mature size
  • Surrounding hardscape elements
  • Available space
  • Water sources
  • Power lines
  • And more

At Outdoor Living by Mr. Mulch, we will look at all of these different aspects of planting to help you find the right plants and the most suitable placement for them. We will also help you navigate zoning regulations to ensure your property follows proper coding requirements. 

What Can I Do If I Don’t Have Good Soil?

Different soil types can have varying effects on your land and plant life. For instance, sandy soil will lose water quickly, while dirt rich in clay may prevent water from soaking into the ground. If you plant a bush that needs rich, light topsoil into clay-filled soil, it will quickly wither and die.

Our team will test your soil to identify its pH balance and composition and make recommendations on plants that will thrive in your yard. Alternately, we can add new topsoil to parts of your property to enrich the dirt and make it possible to plant trees, bushes, flowers, and grasses that might otherwise die in your natural soil.
