Spring Bed Cleanup

Before you Mulch, Clean those Beds! 

Ever wonder how great landscape companies make the mulch beds look so wonderful? The secret is in the preparation.

  • Cut back any remaining ornamental grasses. Ensure the grasses are cut back as low as possible without damaging the crown; the area where the stems meet the roots. Be sure to make the cut level and clean.


  •  Remove dead tissue of spent perennials. If necessary, cut them back to about 1”.  Remove any leaves left from the fall. Removing the dead tissue from the last growing season will help prevent the spread of any pests or disease that may have over-wintered.

  • Pull weeds and rake the beds. An even surface allows for easier installation and requires less mulch in order to achieve a smooth finished appearance.
