How To Buy the Right Evergreen Tree for Your Home
While evergreen trees may share similarities, there are enough differences that should be considered during the decision-making process. Before you buy an evergreen tree online, ask yourself the following questions:
What is your overall goal for the evergreen?
The first step is to always ask yourself this question before you purchase a plant, especially online. Are you looking to add a focal point to your garden? Do you need to plant taller trees to shield against strong winds on your property? Or are you looking for an evergreen tree to line the perimeter of your yard and driveway? Depending on what you’re trying to achieve, the answer is going to differ.
What is the design or color scheme of your home?
Matching the aesthetic and design of your home or property is often overlooked, but a very important step! If you plan this out before you buy your evergreen tree, you can save yourself a lot of money, time, and heartache - repainting the exterior of your home or property is expensive. Gather inspiration from Pinterest, landscaping, and home design magazines and websites.
What is the size of your yard?
Luckily, evergreen trees are diverse and come in many different shapes and sizes. The Hollywood Juniper is an expansive evergreen tree that would best suit larger yards. However, not all is lost if you have a smaller space! Evergreen trees that grow tall and narrow, like the American Pillar Arborvitae, are perfect for city settings where yards don’t just come as vast as they do in suburbs. It will also provide you with extra privacy as it grows over the years.
How to Care for Evergreen Trees
When you buy evergreen trees online from Garden Goods Direct, our experts include detailed, specific, and simple instructions on what you need to do to care for them supporting their growth and longevity. Each plant differs in its care and maintenance routine, however, there are some general rules that can be applied to evergreen trees that you should follow:
Properly prepare for planting
Conifers need little ongoing maintenance, provided you plant them in the right place and give them proper care from the beginning. Find a place in the yard that has sun, but won’t get too dry during the winter. We recommend planting your tree in early spring - the soil has softened up, is cool and damp, and the tree will be ready for spring rain showers. Avoid planting evergreen trees in summer as this can put the tree in “thermal shock.”
Provide enough water
The tree will be in a delicate state after being transported, so make sure to water it thoroughly in the pot it was delivered in prior to replanting it in the chosen spot. If the root ball is dry upon planting, you run the risk of drying out your tree even if the soil surrounding it is moist. During the early phases of transplantation (typically up to a year), we recommend watering it anywhere between 1-3 inches weekly. After that, a thorough watering twice a week or so is sufficient enough. You want the soil to be damp, but not soaking to the point where the roots can drown.
Dig the planting well
You might have heard us say this before, but the standard planting well size for a tree is just as deep as the root ball (or pot it was delivered in) and 2-3 times as wide. Use the pot your evergreen was delivered to guide you when digging the well or hole. The width needs to be larger because the roots will need extra space to spread out as the tree grows.
Add in essential nutrients
A little fertilizer, in the beginning, is just what a freshly planted tree needs. The nutrients in organic fertilizer and compost will give it the extra boost it needs to settle in and start growing. Use fertilizer each spring, making sure to pick one heavy in nitrogen. Since needles can dry out in the winter, your best bet is well-draining, moist, acidic soil to help protect the tree. Coffee grounds can be added to soil increasing the acidity level for plants that do well in such environments, helping them grow and remain healthy.
Seasonal pruning and trimming
Prune your conifers, taking care to correct growth rather than to shape. We recommend that you do your pruning in spring or early summer to give the tree time to harden off before the harsh winter weather. To maintain a natural shape, follow the branching pattern of the evergreen. However, you can also prune the tree to create a pristine cut if that is the look you’re trying to create in your garden.
