Plant and Tree Care Guide

  • New plantings should be watered as needed to ensure proper rooting and survival.
  • Shrubs, perennials and the like should be watered so that the soil around the plant is kept moist. This may need to be done weekly or every other day depending on the time of year and natural rainfall.
  • New plants will take more water the first couple of weeks until the roots are established.
  • Newly planted trees should be watered lightly on a daily basis for the first week.
  • Newly planted trees should be watered at a minimum of once per week there after. You should put the water source on a slow trickle and let it run for a minimum of 20 minutes to ensure the water penetrates to the bottom of the ball of the tree.
  • If at any time the plants show signs of leaf wilt this may indicate lack of moisture. You should check the soil first to see if it is moist and water accordingly.
  • Fertilization will also benefit your investment. Deep root injections can be done or a granular fertilizer source can be used. Tree spikes also work well for large trees. Lawn Tech can assist you with this if you have questions on what to do.
