Buying Trees Is The Start Of A Beautiful Landscape Design
When a lot of people think about ways to improve the appearance of their property the first thing they think of is to add a flower garden. However, many tree nurseries have beautiful trees that can be planted and add to the appearance of the property.
The things to consider when an individual decides to buy trees to plant around their homes are where they are going to plant the trees, are they are going to be used for giving shade during the hot days of summer, or maybe the house is located in the country, and the person wants to use the trees as a windbreak for the winter time.
Many different types of trees can be planted for the purposes mentioned, and there are many that give shade during the summer as well as produce various fruits and berries. The best thing to do when a person has decided to buy trees is for them to talk to the people who operate the nursery and find out what types of trees are best suited for the zone they live in or where the trees will be planted. There are 11 different zones in North America, and each zone has its characteristics. Some zones are hot while other zones are cold. So by knowing which region an individual lives in, they will be able to buy trees that will be better suited for their area.
Other things that an individual may want to ask are things such as how deep they need to plant a particular tree or how far apart do the trees need to be to allow them to grow the best. If there is anything that the buyer does not know, such as what is a bare root tree, the individual should ask the tree nurseries people to explain what it is.
It is also helpful to know when is the best time to plant trees as some trees do better when planted at certain times of the year. While plants such as perennials, ground covers, ferns and wetland plants can be planted any time during the year. A balled stock is shipped between September and April whereas bare root is shipped between September and May.
As mentioned earlier, if an individual is planning to plant trees for having shade during the summer, Red Maple, White Oak, Sugar Maple and Silver Maples are magnificent trees for this purpose. However, many of the evergreen trees are very good if they are to be used as a wind block during winter.
Planting trees has many advantages such as increasing the value of the property, helping to replenish oxygen in the air, adding a pleasant atmosphere to the area they are planted in, producing fruits and berries, and improving the appearance of the area. Any tree growing nursery can give an individual any information that is needed for planting trees.
