How To Take Care of New Tree or Landscape

Landscape shrubs & palms: Water for 20-30 minutes every day for the first 30 days.
After first 30 days, cut back to 30 minutes per day 2 times a week for next 2 weeks.
From there on out, watering once or twice (*depending on season) a week for 30 minutes is recommended.

Trees: Water for 20-30 minutes every day for the first 45 days. After first 45 days, cut back to 30 minutes per day 2 x a week for next 2 weeks.
From there on out, watering twice (*depending on the season) a week for 30 minutes is recommended for the next full year.

Very important and keep in mind… it can take newly planted landscape (especially trees) approximately one year to completely acclimate itself. Therefore, it is vital that you keep up with above suggested watering instructions. We also recommend that you water in the evening hours/sunset in order for the roots to soak up the water vs it evaporating which occurs in daylight.

Fertilizing:

We recommend fertilizing your plants, trees and palms 3 x a year (spring, summer & early fall) with a fast release, high nitrogen fertilizer. Do not fertilize in the winter as that promotes new growth and that new growth could potentially freeze should a cold front come through.

*Seasonal factors to consider:

Summer: If we are in the full swing of the summer time rains, watering can be cut back if rain is consistent. Use your discretion.
Winter: Many tree varieties go dormant (lose all their leaves) in the winter months and that does not mean you can stop watering them especially if it’s been planted within a year’s time frame. Lack of watering will cause it to die!
Spring: Dormant trees will begin to flush new foliage and growth in mid to late spring. If your tree does not show signs of new leaves and foliage, this may be signs of a tree in distress or dead due to the lack of watering. Watering is a must even in the winter!!

How To Fertilize

How to apply all purpose fast release fertilizer (12-6-8):

Individual plant:

Repeat fertilization 3 times a year except in winter months (November-February)


How to properly apply fruit tree and fruit bearing plant fertilizer (8-3-9):

Once a month scatter one level table spoon per foot of tree height, except in winter months (November-February)

of the Month: 

Foxtail Palm

Foxtail palms have become a popular landscape plant due to its aesthetic qualities. 

Their fronds resemble a fox’s tail, therefore the name Foxtail.  They grow relatively fast and are a great addition or accent to your landscape.

Tolerate the shade, but grow best in full sun.  They grow to about 30 feet tall and can survive temperatures down to 30 degrees.  Prefer well-drained, slightly acidic soil.  Once established they require no additional watering and recommend fertilizing every 3 months. 

Low maintenance palm and a beauty in any landscape!
