Break Out the Shovel for Spring Planting

Break out the Shovel for Spring Planting

With spring around the corner, it is time to consider outdoor upgrades and renovations. Perhaps it is also time to begin landscaping and planting new shrubs or trees. If a new tree is in your lawn's future, there is no better time to start digging than early spring.

This time works best for planting because the cool weather allows the plant's roots to take hold and grow without the stress of leaf production and accelerated growth. Early April is the best time to get fresh roots in the ground since bountiful rainfall helps a plant acclimate without intense heat or cold. In addition, damaging snowfall is much more unlikely in April.

Maple trees are an attractive option as a yard adornment.

Shrub-style maples generally grow between eight and 20 feet tall while potentially filling out to 50 feet wide. Larger species can grow to be more than 100 feet in height. They require partial to full sun and come in various species, each with its particular style.

Oak trees are another popular choice that can add beauty and function. They are an excellent source of shade and look outstanding when the leaves change come fall. Oak trees grow to be about the same size as the maples mentioned above. However, they have the potential to grow 20 feet wider. They, too, require partial to full sun.

Both trees require a hole one to two feet wider than the root ball and deep as the ball is in height. Roughen up the soil inside the hole to make rooting easier. The tree can be planted with a burlap sack still intact if that is how it was packaged. The plant's roots can grow through the sack as it begins to rot away. Young trees will need constant watering, which is why early in the season is ideal.

Vegetation needs the initial time to lay down roots; however, some planters prefer to see immediate flowering and growth. Introducing these trees in early spring can provide the best of both worlds. The temperature and potential for rain allow the plant to acclimate, while the fast-approaching warm weather and sun will provide quick gratification for growth.

Red Maple Tree

Red Maple trees are native to North America and are known for their striking spring scarlet flowers, brilliant fall foliage, and distinctive twigs and leaf stems. They are versatile and aesthetically pleasing choices for landscaping and offer various benefits that enhance outdoor spaces. With their striking foliage, adaptable nature, and environmental contributions, red maple trees have become popular residential and commercial landscaping options.  Regarding gardens, the Red Maple Tree is a particular case because it often exceeds 100 feet in height. Its imposing nature and brilliantly colored foliage during the spring and fall make it a breathtaking sight in any garden. It is a focal point because it will dominate any garden landscape. The Flowers Of The Red Maple Tree Comes When It's 8 Years Old This plant will produce blooms when it is roughly eight years old. When the flowers emerge from them, they are tiny and scarlet, giving this maple its name. Interestingly, these pretty little flowers appear as early as December each year so that they will add splashes of crimson to the winter landscape in the garden. The male and female flowers are each a different shade, adding to the color palette of this stately plant. The flowers of this plant fade by the end of May, but the plant still looks like it's got flowers in bloom after pollination of the flowers. After the flowers fall away, beautiful samaras form in clusters throughout the summer, contrasting with the leaves. The Leaves Of The Red Maple Tree The leaves are lush and verdant, and they have one of the most famous shapes of any leaf in the plant kingdom. However, as the leaves turn colors in the autumn, they're not just one color. Gorgeous streaks of orange and yellow form throughout them, creating an almost kaleidoscopic effect as the eyes take in the majesty of the plant. Because this plant has so many colors, it goes well with many perennials of different shades, accentuating the colors of the other plants in the garden and vice versa. Because it is such a large plant for any garden, it's just right as a host for epiphytic plants to grow upon it. In this way, this plant can be integrated into the garden. Environmental Impact Of The Red Maple Tree Red Maple Tree is a necessary part of the food cycle as winter turns to spring, particularly for bumble bees. Because it flowers so early, it provides an exceptional source of pollen and nectar for hungry pollinators before almost any other plants bloom or produce leaves. These plants also help prevent soil erosion with their root systems, especially in wet climates.
