Maintaining and caring for your plants is the best way to ensure that your new landscape remains healthy and vibrant. In general, there are a few things that are a good rule of thumb for all plants. See below for our tips and tricks to maintaining healthy plants.

These biodegradable mats, also referred to as erosion-control nets and erosion-control blankets, hold the soil in place until plantings are established and slowly become part of the soil as they degrade.
New grass/plants will grow directly through the blanket covering. Leave the straw on top of the new seeds, it will decompose over time. It will continue to hold everything in its place and lock in moisture to the new plantings. Could take up to 12 months to fully decompose.
If the netting starts to come loose or raised up in areas, cut away with a knife so that it does not become tangled in the mower blade.
There is no reason to remove the netting before it disintegrates, but if for some reason you absolutely must there are a few things to keep in mind. If you take it up too soon, you risk pulling up the new, fresh, soft roots, and if you wait too long, the netting will have already broken down to the point that it shreds into millions of pieces and won’t come up in one full swoop. Once you can mow the grass once or twice, which is probably about seven to eight weeks after seeding, that’s probably the best time to try to remove the netting – if you absolutely must.
They did an amazing job! I could not be happier with the team out here every single day working hard, being very meticulous on the boulder walls. I now have a functional hill I can actually use for many, many years.Josh | Maple Lake, MN
JK Landscape did a great job on our shoreline. They also took care of the permitting. The crew cleaned up the area at the end of each day and left the path to the shoreline better than it was before. They went above and beyond in completing the project. I would recommend JK in a heartbeat.Charles B.
Thank you so much for the hard work and professionalism you dedicated to our lakeshore landscaping project. We truly appreciate it.Bart & Amy
The guys at JK Landscape did a great job with our landscaping project around our pool. They were very timely and professional. They were great about being able to work around a tough schedule with other trades coming in and out during our build. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing landscaping done!Ashley A.
If you want your landscape project done right, hire JK Landscape! The crew exceeded our expectations in every phase of our project which included a total makeover on a new build lake shore site. Challenging aspects of the project included boulder retaining walls around the house and a steep lakeside hill. The fire pit and paver decking are also signature parts of the project. We couldn’t be happier with our landscaping project with JK Landscape.Dwight G.
Top notch work by JK Landscape putting in a beautiful patio at the Wright County Swappers Meet. Would recommend their work to others any day!Laurie M.
We are grateful for JK Landscape for taking on our "ugly" project. We appreciate all you did on our behalf to finish this project on so many levels, including working with the county and townships. The end result is a much more attractive, functional driveway, patio and garden bed. The retaining wall looks great.Brian & Charise Schutz

JK Landscape remodeled our shoreline. They took care of all the permitting, county approval meetings, and lawn restoration. I highly recommend JK Landscape!Peter S.
JK Landscape was prompt and thorough from start to finish. My wife and I were back and forth a little on deciding exactly what we wanted for our backyard patio. JK Landscape was there to answer all the questions we had throughout the entire project.Brett | St. Cloud, MN
