To ensure the success of your new trees and shrubs, we ask that you review this checklist.
- Are drainage, climate, and exposure (sun, shade, and wind) conditions appropriate for the plants being installed? If you are unsure, please ask us for advice.
- Is the planting area clear of all stumps, ground cover, debris, etc?
- Let us know if there are any underground utilities in the area. If necessary Stauffers will call 811 and have the lines marked.
- Have you placed flags to clearly identify where the plants go? Write the name of each plant on each flag.
- Is the planting area easy to find? Are all gates unlocked? Can the area be reached with a wheelbarrow?
Caring for Your New Plantings
After planting, trees and shrubs should be watered thoroughly, then water when soil is dry to the touch – about 1.5 inch or knuckle deep.
Check regularly and only water when necessary. Too much water or lack of water are top reasons plants fail to grow.
Water more frequently during long periods of hot and dry weather. Try to water before noon during warm weather. In the fall, be sure to water any new plants once a week until the ground freezes.If plants are in clay soil, be sure they do not sit in water.
To encourage a deep root system, let a slow trickle of water soak into the soil at the plant base for 10 to 15 min.
Keep 2 inches of mulch around new plantings. Mulch helps to keep weeds out and moisture in.
We apply a starter fertilizer at planting time, which should be sufficient for the first year.
