Watering, Watering, Watering- The next thing after planting

First 4-6 weeks- EVERYDAY                        Weeks 6-52 Every three to six days

(small amounts EVERYDAY)                         (take a break once the ground has frozen!)

        Perennials- 2 quarts

        Shrubs- 3 quarts

        Large Shrubs- 6 quarts

        Small Trees- 1 gallon

        Large Trees- 2 gallons

It is best to water your new plants with a watering wand at the end of a hose. Check the flow of your hose by counting how long it takes to fill a one gallon bucket.

Talk with your Project Manager about your soil type, specific plant needs,

hot dry windy periods, irrigation considerations and how rainfall can impact your watering schedule.
