GRADING, TOPSOIL, MULCH


Sometimes your yard just needs a little help to make it more functional. If Grading, Top Soil & Mulchyour yard has lots of dips and rises and it mows unevenly, we can grade it out with our skid steer to give it a smoother, more uniform surface. If necessary, we can add some topsoil and hand rake it to finish off the look.

If you have some heavy traffic areas, such as near the kid’s swing-set or behind the garage, some well placed sand can give it a cleaner look and eliminate the mud factor. For a continually used path, a three-foot wide gray stone base may be the answer. There are several of these stone paths at our Swainton home and it ended tracking mud into the house.

Your flowers beds may lack the luster they once had, so a little topsoil can refresh both the plants and the appearance. We like to top all beds with triple-shredded mulch. Why triple-shredded? As opposed to double-shredded, the triple has a more finished appearance and it covers more thoroughly. Better yet, by the next year the bottom portion of the mulch will have decomposed into soil. So you are building your soil each year while adding valuable nutrients. It’s win-win! The mulch we use is a deep brown color and it’s all natural with no additives. We caution you that black mulch and red mulch are dyed to attain that color, plus they cost more. But it’s your choice.
