Installation of Plants & Trees

When and where you plant your shrubs and trees makes all the difference to their potential beauty and health. A healthy plant will be much easier to maintain in the long run, so keep these helpful hints in mind when adding a new tree or shrub.

  • Select hardy, pest- and disease-resistant varieties
  • Choose plants best suited to your area’s climate zone
  • Determine the attributes (sun exposure, soil type, drainage and rainfall) of the various sites on your property and then select plants that will thrive in these environments
  • Check the plant information tags before purchasing the plant
  • Determine the mature size of the plant before you position it on your property to ensure it has adequate space to grow to full size
  • Ensure the mature plant will be appropriate for your long-term landscape plan
  • Consider native plants which provide habitat for many organisms, conserve water and soil, and are low maintenance
  • Ask a professional if unsure as to whether the tree or shrub is appropriate for your site.
