5 Steps to Better Spring Mulching

Here in Goshen, Indiana we just received the biggest snow fall of the year. But, we know March is almost here which means soon our landscape trucks will be out helping home owners in Elkhart, Granger, Middlebury, Bristol, Warsaw, Nappanee, Mishawaka, Edwardsburg, and  the surrounding areas get ready for summer.

Brown hardwood mulch for spring will help you enjoy living outdoors more this summer.

We want to share 5 Steps to Better Spring Mulching to ensure your mulch is applied correctly to maximizing all the benefits of wood mulch. Incorrect mulch application can actually damage trees and plantings.

  1. Check the depth of the existing mulch. If 2-4″ are present, do not add more mulch. Either remove some of the existing mulch and apply new hardwood mulch, or rake the existing mulch to break-up the surface and refresh the appearance.
  2. If your beds need a fresh application of mulch, apply the wood mulch to a total depth of 2-4″  for well-drained soils.
  3. Remember to keep mulch at least 2″ away from all tree trunks to avoid damaging your trees. When mulch is piled against the tree trunk, the bark can become damp and warmer than ambient temperatures. This encourages insect infestation that can lead to a short death of the tree. If mulch has already been piled against your tree, pull the mulch back to reduce future damage.
  4. For reduced maintenance, apply weed prevention to each mulch bed. This should be completed in early spring and often repeated about 6-months later as needed.
  5. Finally, use a broom or small blower to push any excess mulch or granular weed prevention back into the mulch beds & enjoy summer! Your mulch planting beds will be the envy of the neighborhood.

Landscape Designs Save Money

Landscape designs have become a valuable asset to our clients. Our design team is able to use existing site features and create an entire landscape package. These images show the existing landscape conditions and the how the landscape design will solve both landscape and architectural layouts.

As our designers begin the landscape design process, we evaluate several needs:

  • Balance House & Landscape Areas
  • Client Goals
  • Client Lifestyle
  • Existing Site Features  (hills, ponds, driveways, ect)
  • House Architecture
  • Resale-Value
  • Long-Term Durability

After consulting with our client & and reviewing the site, our team of designers begins the drafting process. The thought and design process is evident in the above images. Details and highlights of the house and needs of the client and brought together.

The resulting landscape design will improve the resale value of their home, provide a casual entertainment space, and help them enjoy living outdoors more this summer. We look forward to helping solve your landscape planting & patio needs with our comprehensive landscape designs & plans.

We look forward to designing your next project!

Paver Patio Designs with Lighting

Patio & Lighting Designs are the First Step to Starting a New Landscape Project

Often we are asked what the process is for creating a patio design with landscape lighting. Since an outdoor living area can be a significant investment, we recommend that a client start with a design. A patio & lighting design will ensure the layout, size, and spacing is appropriate for the desired use.

During the designing phase, fire pits, fire tables, small fountains, columns, and accents can be included with the initial layout. It is important that the patio design includes plenty of space for each activity:

  • Outdoor Dining Table
  • Sitting Walls (for extra guest seating)
  • Grilling, Brick Oven, or other Cooking Space
  • Herb Garden
  • Kitchen & Bar
  • Cedar, Aluminum, or Vinyl Pergola
  • Fiberglass Swimming Pool (if desired)
  • Outdoor TV
  • Hot Tub Spa
  • Planting Bed & Colorful Seasonal Displays
  • Stone or Mulch Beds
  • Illumination Lighting


Both 2D & 3D Landscape Patio & Planting Designs with Lighting help with the visualization of the landscape patio project before it even begin. Working with Stone Ridge Landscaping Inc. will provide the areas best designers and craftsmen to install your custom patio. We look forward to helping you enjoy living outdoors more this summer!
