Landscape Renovations in Manhattan Beach - Mulch, Rock, Trees, Shrubs


Mulch is one of the most beneficial add-ons to your landscaping and gardens - your shrubs and flowers get the benefits of retaining soil moisture, which helps reduce watering bills, but mulch also acts as a natural weed barrier and can bring a great deal of color to your landscape.

Our mulch application guidelines: we highly recommend at least 3-4" to allow new plantings to retain adequate moisture. If you are just refreshing your landscape, then a topdressing depth of 1"-2" is optimal. Contact us today to see the mulch type and color varieties we have to offer!
