Everyone and their neighbour strive to achieve a lush and vibrant lawn. Many times, a vibrant lawn has nothing to do with the yard itself; sometimes, it has more to do with the surrounding elements. Overall, a healthy landscape will naturally encourage a vibrant lawn. To accomplish the sought-after vibrancy, landscaping contractors and professionals will either incorporate popular landscaping methods or use their favorite supplies, and they may even have their tricks of the trade. However, it is essential to remember to include these tried-and-true landscaping supplies that will guarantee a vibrant lawn.
Mulch is an essential landscaping material. It contributes beneficial properties for the health of the landscape and offers an aesthetic quality. Mulch comes in many varieties and many rich colours to choose from. At FSI Landscape Supply, we provide the following types of mulch: pine mulch, cedar mulch, red mulch, and black mulch. Each type has its own unique colouring. Pine Mulch is an all-natural pine bark mulch, reddish-brown in colour. Cedar Mulch is an all-natural white cedar bark mulch, light brown in colour. Red mulch is 100% natural wood fibre double-dyed with an organic colourant. Black Mulch is also 100% natural wood fibre and is a deep, black colour, double-dyed with an organic pigment. Incorporating a rich mulch in surrounding garden beds will help contour the landscape and provide colour contrast. Therefore, enhancing the overall appearance and contributing to a lush green lawn.
Landscape edging will provide a finished, polished look and enhance the overall vibrancy of the lawn. As grass and other plant life grow, the original landscape design will begin to unravel if unkept. Landscape edging will help to define the lawn perimeter and maintain the original landscape design. You can also use landscape edging to define other areas, for example, garden beds.
It is difficult to predict when weeds are going to creep in and pop up. After hard work and dedication, weeds are the last thing you want to ruin a beautiful landscape. Luckily, there are many ways to prevent a weed infestation. Mulch prevents sunlight while allowing moisture to seep through; therefore, it is an effective method when addressing weeds. Landscape edging is also a popular choice as it assists with preventing weeds from invading the green space, and it does not involve chemicals or solutions. Another popular method is using filter fabric (landscaping fabric). Filter fabric is used for outdoor areas, under decks, underneath garden beds, and laid under patios.

Water and sunshine is the classic combination for a healthy lawn. However, too much or too little can disrupt the natural balance, resulting in discolouration and lack of vitality. If the perfect balance has been achieved, then the last essential component to incorporate is compost. The lawn needs to be fed a nutrient-dense mixture. Compost helps the soil to retain moisture and feeds the naturally existing microorganisms, which all play a part in keeping the lawn lush and vibrant.
