Consider adding softscape features to your landscape this spring while the weather is still conducive for successful planting.
If you’re looking to add plants to your landscape consider doing it sooner rather than later. Waiting too long to plant could actually hinder plant development, and may require a plant replacement next year. Spring and fall are really the best times to plant, so if you want to have a plant-filled landscape this summer, we recommend planting as soon as possible.
Planting in the spring is a good idea because conditions are usually great for plant growth and root development. With ample moisture and light, and warming, but still moderate temperatures, newly installed plants will thrive through April and May. Fall likely gets the nod for better planting season for trees and shrubs due to the excelled root development, but if you’re looking to enjoy your landscape throughout the summer, you need to plant in the spring!
This doesn’t mean that planting can’t be done in the summer, because with the right landscape professional and consistent watering throughout the summer, it can be done successfully. However, for optimal results, try to stick to spring and fall planting.
