Las Vegas has a very warm climate. Many residents love the endless sun and lack of harsh winter weather. One of the best ways to head off the heat, however, is by planting trees. Fortunately, it’s possible to plant many types of trees even in a relatively arid climate. Get the trees on your property ready and in place with the right preparation.
The Right Time
One of the most important details to keep in mind when planting trees is picking the right time of the year. Spring is an ideal choice. This is when the weather is milder. It’s also when you have enough time to make sure the tree can get established before the summer heat sets in. Later in the fall also works out well. That gives the trees a chance to get comfortable and settle down properly.
A Good Place
Another detail to think about when planting your trees is where to place them. You want to avoid placing them too closely to your property. That will protect your home in the event that branches start to drop. You also want to think about the amount of shade and sunshine the trees need. Some trees need more sun while others grow best in full shade or partial shade. If you have a larger property, you can space out the trees and create groves where you can sit on a hot day. That will make it easy for our professionals to trim and prune your new trees.
You need the right tools to get the job done well. You’ll want to wear gardening gloves to protect your fingers and hands as you plant. You’ll also want to make sure you have on comfortable shoes with a good grip on the ground. This way, you don’t have to worry about falling as you hold the tree. A pair of sunglasses can help shield your eyes from the sun. A shovel is another must when planting trees. A trowel can also help make sure you can dig around in the soil as needed.
Making It Work
Making the trees work on your property means paying close attention to details. You’ll want to stay rested and hydrated as you work. You’ll also want to make sure you’re planting a hole big enough so that the tree’s roots have room to spread out. Allow enough room for the tree to expand and grow. You’ll also want to make sure the tree has enough water and the soil drains properly.
All trees should be planted well. Contact Benjamin’s Tree Service to make sure your trees continue to look great after they’re planted.
