Flowerbeds - Installation & Design

FLORICULTURE | Seasonal color beds are used to draw attention to entryways of property, highlight sign areas or enhance views through the landscape. There are two seasons in West Alabama for annual flowers. Summer annuals are installed in May through September. Winter annuals are installed in October through April. There are countless types of annual flowers, which are available in dozens of colors. It is our job to recognize the specific site conditions you have and match the proper plants in a unique display. We call the entire process our floriculture program; it includes

1. Pull and remove existing annual plants
2. Prune back any plants that encroach the bed.
3. Remove old mulch from bed.
4. Till and grade soil.
5. Contour soil for proper drainage.
