Watering Schedule SheetProper watering will get your plants off to the right start in your new landscape!
- Water the first time by letting a hose slowly trickle around the base of the tree for about an hour. This helps eliminate the air pockets surrounding the root ball.
- Water once a day for the first week and then a couple times a week thereafter through the season. Trees planted in heavy soils should be checked to avoid over watering. Spraying the leaves in the evening is beneficial in hot weather.
Shrubs and Perennials:
- Water once a day for the first week and then a couple times a week thereafter through the season. Shrubs and perennials will also wilt when they are dry, so keep an eye on them! *** Tip***
If it has been wet and rainy, water less; If it has been dry and hot, water more often.
