Soil Amendment Services for your Garden Beds

Our soil amendment process involves adding organic material to the soil to improve its physical properties, such as water retention, permeability, water infiltration, drainage, aeration, and structure. The goal is to provide a better environment for roots. For soil amendments to do its work, an amendment must be thoroughly mixed into the soil. If it is merely buried, its effectiveness is reduced, and it will interfere with water, air movement as well as root growth. Some of the benefits of soil amendment include: 

  • Maintains rich, healthy soil

  • Improves access to nutrients

  • Reduces disease symptoms

Pruning Fruit Trees

There are two types of fruit tree pruning depending on whether or not the production of fruit is a priority. Here's a description of each type so you can learn the difference between the two.

Production fruit tree pruning

The height is pruned and contained in order to maximize fruit harvest. The sides of the canopy are pruned to promote strong structure and lateral branching (branches grow out to the sides). A full canopy of foliage is maintained to help prevent sun scalding of the upper branches.

Ornamental fruit tree pruning

While the tree will still produce fruit, the goal of this pruning is to maintain the tree’s structural ornamental beauty. The tree is allowed to grow to its mature size and shape in order to amplify its decorative contribution to the landscape.
