Watering

Are you watering your trees and shrubs correctly?
Proper watering can ensure that plants not only survive these hot months but thrive!

  • Plants and trees (especially new plantings!) need a deep watering 2-3 times per week until the first frost
  • Deep watering means that the soil is saturated to the depth of the root ball
  • Avoid daily, shallow watering
  • Do not rely on irrigation systems for watering trees, as they will not provide a deep enough watering to reach the roots
    Using a Treegator watering bag, or similar device can make this process much easier!
