Nisswa Landscape Renovation Services - Mulch, Rock, Trees, Shrubs and Flowers


Installing mulch (commonly referred to as wood chips) within your landscaping is very beneficial for not only plants, but also for maximizing the curb appeal of your property - homes, cabins and businesses. Many clients enjoy the eye popping vibrant colors such as orange or red while some prefer more subtle colors such as natural shredded hardwood with no dyes or dark brown.

Our mulch installation guidelines: we 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 best suited. Contact us today to inquire about the mulch type and color varieties we have to offer!

Decorative Rock

Decorative rock is about as close to maintenance free landscaping as one can get. It is also a great way to prevent weeds by utilizing a proper underlayment prior to the rock being installed. We also offer dry creek beds to allow for excess water drainage to reduce erosion concern. We offer multiple rock varieties, such as buff limestone and the popular river rock which boasts a mixture of colors.
