Techniseal Polymeric Sand is all we use!

Installing pavers is hard work. When you are finished with all of that hard work, the last thing you want to see on your Paver walkway or patio are ant hills or weeds growing through the Paver joints. You have just invested all of this time and effort, not to mention money, to build the best walkways and patios around. Now is not the time to skimp or try and save money. Natures Elite will not install any Paver products without using Techniseal Polymeric Joint Sand. You want your jobs to look great for years down the road. Insist on Techniseal Polymeric Sand! Check out the video on how to install correctly on our previous blog.

How to install Mulch

Installing Mulch  might seem like a simple thing, the problem is that people just keep putting an additional 2-3 inches of new fresh mulch every year. Yes new mulch looks and smells great, but 2-3 inches a year over 5 years adds up to about a foot of mulch applied in 5 years, yes it does break down, but not that quick. The best options for your mulch beds is to turn that mulch over mid-season, it will look and smell great. Also when you re-apply in the spring just a light top coat is all you need, 1 to 1.5 inches is more than enough for existing tree and shrub beds. Also every 3 years consider removing a couple of inches of the old mulch before applying new mulch, this old mulch can be used for new planting beds, walkways or where ever you may need it.

Rain Gardens are a great Idea.

Trouble with water on your property, low spots, down spouts, you might want to consider installing a Rain Garden to help with the water. Rain Gardens will help filter and absorb that excess water, all while creating a new beautiful planting area in your yard. Do something that will benefit the environment and yourself, consider a Rain Garden for water runoff.

Root Collar Excavation

In these days of more is better, bigger is better, the one thing in landscaping we need to remember and watch out for is over mulching, more is not better. More mulch can cause all kinds of problems with your trees and shrubs, girdling roots is one major problem, the trees root system will actually circle the base of the tree and start to choke it off, you will notice die back on branches that does not seem normal. There is a remedy for this, it's called a root collar excavation, you could use an air spade or you could remove the material by hand, the picture above is a tree we did in Gilford NH, we removed almost 2 yards of material from the base of this tree. With proper care and fertilization, this tree will do much better and provide years of enjoyment for the homeowners.

Proper Grading Prevents House Problems

Landscaping is often associated with trees and shrubs, the most important parts of proper landscaping procedures are sometimes never seen, the underground drains that channel water away from foundations, the grading that keeps moisture away from the trim boards and siding. These are the things that Landscape Professionals do when installing a new or existing landscape. The cost of hiring a professional will be worth it in the long run.
