Landscape Renovations in Pillager - Mulch, Rock, Trees, Shrubs & Flowers


Mulch installed in your landscape beds will not only give your property a crisp, clean, and manicured look, but it will also drastically reduce the amount of time spent weeding and watering. Mulching also helps with erosion control and it also keeps dirt from splashing up on your flowers, home, and hardscape features when it rains.  

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!

Decorative Rock

One of the best methods to "set it and forget it" with your landscaping. Decorative rock provides a great look without colors ever fading. We offer rock in a variety of colors and styles such as Buff Limestone, River Rock and much more.

Plants - Trees, Shrubs, Perennials and Annual Flowers

Trees not only provide shade for your house (allowing it to stay cooler in the summer) but also bring amazing aesthetics. Bring together an assortment of evergreen and deciduous shrubs and trees to make your landscape "pop". Our team is incredibly knowledgeable with tree and shrub placement to ensure proper sun exposure and soil conditions.

Landscape Bed Edging

The best method for keeping rock or mulch where it belongs, in the landscape beds! The same for turf. Edging is a great separator for keeping mower blades away from flinging rock and also gives your landscape a crisp, finished look.

Pillager Shoreline Restoration and Lakefront Landscapes

Lakeside Landscapes

Creating a lakefront retreat as a gathering space such as a sand beach, or paver patio with a fire pit are great ways to maximize the short window of time that we have to enjoy the warm summer days and nights at the lake. 

Rip Rap

Water can completely erode your shoreline, especially if you experience a large volume of boat traffic through the summer or if you live on a larger lake that is subject to high winds and ice heaving. Protect your shoreline with a professional rip rap installation from Black Rock Landscaping.
