Lawn Alternatives

      • Reduce your lawn by expanding mulch around trees and beds.
      • Trees are one of the best options for slopes and other difficult to maintain areas. Large areas can be planted inexpensively with tree seedlings available from the NC Forest Service. Orders should be placed in the summer-fall for delivery in the winter. Visit the NC Tree Store to see what is available
