    Hello Nicholas, thanks for your question. The mulch that we use is an specially formulated organic hard wood mulch from The Stone Barns Center For Food and Agriculture located in Pocantico Hills, New York near Sleepy Hollow. It is an un-dyed natural custom blend that we formulated with Stone Barns. I can put you in touch withwith them if you'd like. I hope this helps.

    Hello Patricia, thanks for your question. The tree in the corner is an older mature Japanese Maple. I recommend that you seek out the advice of a landscape professional in your area in Ontario. Perhaps a local nursery or searching here on HOUZZ. Someone with more knowledge of your specific climate and site conditions will be better suited to help you on plant recommendations for your property. Good luck with your project!

    Hello andeka, thanks for your question. We did not use any edging between the lawn and garden bed. Just cut in a nice cut edge using a flat shovel. This technique is more organic and easy to maintain. Good luck with your project!

    A tree with a sculptural form can also serve as a corner focal point.
