It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away. Have you decided what kind of tree you’ll have? More and more people are choosing living trees for holiday decoration, and now’s a great time to choose one that’s right for you.
Don’t let those bare branches fool you, your trees and shrubs need water year-round. Their leaves may be long-gone, but your trees and shrubs are still active, even in the dead of winter. When cold weather comes, trees redirect their energy from above-ground growth and leaf and seed production to storing nutrients and expanding their root systems. And they need water to do it.
Fall is prime time for planting trees and shrubs. Well placed greenery around your home’s perimeter will add to its curb appeal and value and can even add a measure of security. But if your plans include adding foundation plantings, there are some things you should know in order to avoid problems and disappointment in the future.
