Pequot Lakes Landscape Renovations - Mulch, Rock, Trees, Shrubs and Flowers


Wood chips, mulch, bark, the list of names for mulch will vary depending on who you are talking to but the fact remains that it is incredibly beneficial for your landscape. It retains moisture in your soil preventing trees, shrubs and flowers from drying out and works as a natural weed barrier.

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!

When properly installed with an underlayment, weeds don't stand a chance and your landscape will look amazing for decades to come.

Lawn Renovations - Grading, Dirt, Sod, Seeding and Hydroseeding

Nothing quite creates such a drastic positive change in curb appeal like sod in Pequot Lakes. Taking a wide open space that was once a barren landscape, then installing and grading new black dirt, and lastly laying freshly cut Kentucky Bluegrass sod is the best method for creating your new lawn area. 

We also offer other cost-effective options for lawn establishment - such as traditional seed and hydroseeding. Get in touch today for more information.

Pequot Lakes Shoreline Restoration and Lakefront Landscapes

There is no better way to enjoy the summer lake season than being out on the boat, or the next best thing would be on the lakeshore with a sand beach and a concrete paver or natural stone patio to hang out near the water. Then spending the summer nights lakeside with a custom fire pit built into the patio!

When it comes to combatting water doing potential property damage such as lakeshore erosion, it is crucial to have properly installed rip rap to restore the lakeshore, especially if your property is on a lake with a lot of boat traffic.
