#AtoZChallenge – T is for Tree Planting

Smile and say “TREES!” Trees are a vital landscaping component. When thriving, they make a beautiful contribution to the garden. Adding trees to your landscape, whether it is one specimen tree or a grouping of a certain variety, will greatly improve the appearance and value of your property. Trees can create shady spots perfect for a bench or table. They can block winds and add privacy. Depending on the variety, they can also add color and interest to your yard. Think about whether you want an evergreen, deciduous, or flowering tree.

Choosing the right tree is crucial. Integrity Landscape design experts will offer expert knowledge in tree choice and where to plant it. A major do-it-yourself landscaping mistake is improper tree placement. For example, a tree with surface roots can destroy paving, while a tree that grows taller than expected can interfere with power lines or block views.

Once your trees have been selected and planted they will need to be cared for properly. Providing the right amount of water is probably the most crucial maintenance concern when it comes to trees. Most trees require occasional deep watering, but familiarize yourself with your tree's specific needs. Other maintenance considerations include mulching, fertilizing, and pruning.

With each mature tree potentially adding thousands of dollars of value to your home, you can't afford to make an uneducated decision. The experts at Integrity Landscape can help you select the best trees for your property and growing conditions. They have experience with many tree types and will be able to tell you what will and won't work.
