Now that winter is ending, it’s time to think about planting for the spring time and adding more color and interest to your landscape. Shrubs are an ideal item to add because they add texture, depth, and scope to your landscape. They can be natural dividers, too, to create different sections to your commercial landscape or residential yard.

Start with looking at the type of shrub you might want to add. There are flowering and non-flowering shrubs that work well in different growing zones. As your landscape partner, we can recommend shrubs that work well for your environment, including considering how much shade or sun that area may offer.

Planting shrubs involves a specific process to make sure they can adapt and thrive where they are planted. Make the soil moist  before digging a hole for the shrub.  From there, dig a hole that is three or four times as wide as the container the shrub came in. However, the hole should be about the same size as the height of the containers.

Fill the hole with water and then let it drain out before putting the shrub in the hole you dug. Put half the soil back into the hole and pat it down. Now, add the rest of the soil and compact that lightly. Add water and mulch around the top of the soil. For the first two months after planting the shrub, water it at least once a week if it hasn’t rained.

If this sounds like more work than you think you can do or you would prefer a professional to plant and manage your shrubs and landscape, then please contact us. We would love to work with you and design and maintain your commercial or residential landscape.
