Garden Bed Maintenance

Weed Control

Landscape beds house your trees, shrubs and flower and tie the beauty of your home into your landscape. There is nothing worse than a landscape bed filled with unsightly weeds. It can ruin the curb appeal of your home and welcome pests to your neighborhood, which is why garden bed maintenance is very important.

Though prevention is the best option for prohibiting weeds from appearing in your landscape beds, occasionally a cure is needed for those that appear despite your hard work. Moscarino Landscaping provides pre and post-emergent weed control solutions to attack any potential or existing weed problem.

When weeds appear in your landscape bed they steal necessary nutrients offered by the soil, rain and sun. They also disturb the beauty of your planted flowers, trees and plants within the fertilized soil. In order to enjoy a beautiful and healthy bed, it is necessary to keep all landscaping projects free of weeds. There are several ways to combat emerging weeds, both before and after they have germinated. We offer effective prevention as well as a plan of attack for the weeds that slip through the cracks.

Pre-emergent weed control is an effective method to prevent many types of weeds from stealing nutrients away from the overall health of your plants. Seasonal fertilization and herbicides prevent weeds from surpassing the seed stage.

Post-Emergent weed control is necessary when stubborn weeds mature and appear in your landscape beds. It is necessary to remove them in an effective and efficient manner when they reach a mature state. Hand pulling of weeds combined with an herbicide is typically a successful method to ensure weed control.

Deep Edging of Landscape Beds

Your landscape beds highlight your home and protect your shrubbery, flower and greenery. Deep curved lines that clearly define your landscape beds and lawn tie your garden to your home and create a crisp, clean look. A landscape bed that is properly edged assists with weed prevention. Well-edged beds also are easier to mow around.

Creating a deep edge around your landscape beds is a necessary step prior to mulching. A well-edged bed keeps grass in your lawn and out of your landscape beds. Plastic and metal edging may be easy to install and fairly inexpensive but it lacks a professional flair and it often tough to use on curved beds. Brick, stone, rock and poured edges provide a crisp, clean edge, but are quite expensive and often require maintenance.

Moscarino Landscaping will assess your landscape needs and provide you with recommendations that fit your yard’s personality and your budget.
