If your soil is quality, all that is needed is good rototill, and rake! If the soil is poor quality, rototill before adding quality lawn or garden top soil. We recommend 2-5 inches, but the more the better (as long as you are not leaving deep footprints).

When we arrive we are looking for good soil that is level to the grade you are happy with, loose, dry, and freshly raked! The mulch adheres to the ground much better creating a matte fiber.

We highly recommend a sprinkler system with a timer. With quality soil, good prep, sprinkler system, and timer we will guarantee our work!

**We can give you a price right on the phone, if you let us know the city, exact square footage, name, and phone number! If you get our answering service please leave all the above information. We are very good about returning phone calls!
