Mulching landscape beds with natural organic bark is the best way to reduce evaporation loss, minimize weeds, and add organic matter to the soil. Organic bark includes cedar, red pine and hardwood types or varieties. it also protects plants in the winter.

Core Aeration is a mechanical means to improve your lawn. Plugs of soil are pulled up, loosening the compacted soil and allowing air, water and fertilizer to penetrate to the roots of your grass. Plugs eventually decompose and help regenerate your lawn.
