Tips on Winter Planting for Raleigh Landscaping
Winter is the ideal time to plant and transplant trees and shrubs in your Raleigh Landscaping. The roots are still active during the winter and this activity is crucial for the plants uptake of food and water. Also, the weather is a little less demanding.
The first thing you will need to do is choose a place in your Raleigh Landscaping suitable to the plant or tree’s needs. This depends on what you are planting. You will want to ensure that what you are planting will receive appropriate amounts of light and water. This will ensure growth.
Next, it is a good idea to add soil amendments to the area you are going to plant. This will provide the trees or plants with nutrients as well as room for the roots to grow. Adding these to the entire Raleigh Landscaping area and not just one single hole will also help the plant as the roots spread.
Then, you will also want to ensure that the plant is provided with adequate amounts of water. This will depend on the type of tree or shrub you are planting or transplanting. Installing drip tubing around the plant will help facilitate watering.
Finally, mulching is always a good idea. This will help the roots retain moisture as well as protect them from extreme temperature fluctuations.
