Care Instructions

We have installed locally grown nursery stock that is free from defect, but the care you provide from now on is essential to keeping your new landscaping alive and thriving.

Follow these basic instructions, using your good judgment, and you will enjoy the rewards of a beautiful landscape for years to come!

Watering

Providing adequate water is one of the most important things you can do to establish and maintain healthy trees, shrubs and perennials.

It is critical that that these new plantings be watered on a regular basis for 1-2 years or until established. Yearly rainfall amounts may or not may be adequate for newly installed plants as well as established plants so it’s very important to check the soil moisture on a regular basis to ensure the plant is receiving adequate moisture.

Use a trowel to dig 6-8” around the plant to check moisture levels or use a metal rod and push into the ground. If it penetrates easily its likely moist enough, dry soils resist penetration. A soggy soil condition is a sign of overwatering.

The important thing to remember is that watering is not an exact science. Soil conditions and plant type will dictate how much or little water a plant needs and can tolerate.

FERTILIZATION

Your new landscape plantings will have adequate fertilizer for the first growing season.

A spring broadcast application of a 5-6 month slow release nursery stock fertilizer will help in keeping your plantings vigorous and thriving.

Follow the application instructions on the package but a general rule of thumb is to apply 1 lb of nitrogen per 1000 square feet of landscape beds.

PRUNING

Shrub pruning is typically done 2 times per year, once in June or July after the plant has finished flowering.

If needed, repeat again September or October.

WINTER MAINTENANCE

There are many different theories on preparing your plantings for the winter and the truth is most theories will work just fine.

We recommend cutting back your perennials and ornamental grasses in the late fall in order to keep your landscaping tidy over the winter.

The few exceptions would be to leave up any perennials or grasses that have showy winter color or form. Be advised though that the cleanup in the fall is much easier than in the spring.

If you have questions about your individual plantings please call our office for some guidance.
