You can live chat with our team regarding any questions or concerns. We are here to provide you with expert advice and guidance on everything related to trees. So, what are some additional benefits of buying trees? Read on to see our favorites!
Enhance the appeal of your property
This may seem like an obvious answer, but trees are an excellent way to complement the existing foliage in your yard or to enhance the curb appeal of your home entirely. Flowering trees are stunning focal points with their varying blossoms, while evergreen trees complement any existing landscape and are very forgiving. Investing in landscaping enhances the overall property value as well, which is exactly what you want if you ever plan to sell your home!
Purify the air surrounding your home
Trees are the best air purifiers! They will replace carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and other common pollutants with oxygen so you can breathe easily in your yard. Something worth considering, especially if you live in highly polluted areas like large cities or near refineries. Whether your yard is small or you have acres to fill, there’s a tree for everyone!
Support the ecosystem surrounding your home
Trees provide much-needed shelter and nutrition for the local wildlife surrounding your home. Pollinating critters, such as birds and bees, are essential to sustaining the ecosystem, so provide them with a home in your very own yard!
Protect your home against the elements
Landscape trees serve a multitude of purposes aside from just enhancing the aesthetic of your property. They can protect your home and property against harsh weather conditions. Privacy trees also double as screening trees; when planted next to each other, they create strong screens against heavy winds and precipitation. Tree roots also stabilize your property and protect the soil from erosion during seasons of strong rainfall.
How to Order the Right Tree Online
Before you buy trees online, it’s important to consider the different factors that could affect your decision. Ask yourself the following questions to help guide you in the right direction:
What purpose is the landscaping tree going to serve?
Start out by asking yourself this question. Are you wanting to enhance the privacy of your yard, but you don’t have a lot of space to work with? The Italian Cypress grows tall and narrow, making it the perfect choice for smaller settings. Plant several of them in a line and create a vibrant green screen that adds much-needed peace and quiet to your home. Or are you looking to find a tree where you admire its grandeur and can literally enjoy your fruits of labor? Garden Goods Direct has a wide variety of fruit trees, but one of our favorites is the Honeycrisp Apple Tree.
How much space do you have to work with?
Another obvious question to ask yourself - is your property large, mid-sized, or small? Whatever the answer, rest assured we have a tree to fit the specifications. For whimsical charm and a larger yard, we recommend the Weeping Willow. It’s what fairytales are made of and creates a magical feel surrounding your home. On the flip side, if you have a smaller yard, you can still plant trees! The Red Crape Myrtle grows really well in large pots, allowing you to utilize your space effectively. Its flowers are also an eye-catching shade of red making it a natural focal point.
How much time can you dedicate to maintenance?
Depending on the level of care and attention you can spare, this will dictate what tree you should order. If your schedule is already spread thin, but you desperately want to build your dream garden, consider evergreen trees. Evergreens are low-maintenance and highly forgiving plants that can withstand tough conditions and inconsistent watering schedules.
How to Care for Landscaping Trees
Rest assured that each landscape tree in our collection is grown from the highest quality stock plants available, supporting their health, growth, and success. When you buy trees online with Garden Goods Direct, our plant experts will send you detailed, simple instructions on how to best care for your tree. Even though each tree is unique in its care, there are some tips that can be applied to most varieties:
Plant in the best spot
Landscape trees typically grow best in sunny areas. Before you actually plant the tree, map out what section of your property will set the tree up for success. When it’s time to prep the soil, dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball and nearly 2-3 times as wide (the container the tree is delivered in is an excellent measuring guide). You don’t want the root ball to be too deep in the ground; the extra width helps the roots to expand as the tree takes to the soil and grows.
Sufficiently water the tree roots
There are certain trees that can go for longer periods without being watered, but a general rule of thumb is to ensure that the soil surrounding the tree is moist, not drenched. During the first year of a landscape tree being planted in a new yard, it’s vital to water it almost daily due to its delicate state. As the tree continues to mature, you can reduce that frequency to a couple of times a week (depending on how hot the season is and how much precipitation you get). The best way to check is to feel the soil for yourself. Stick a gardening trowel into the soil or a similar device, and feel it with your bare skin. Is it soaking, moist, or bone dry? If it’s bone dry, that’s a clear sign that the tree needs more water. If it’s soaking, let it be and don’t water it again until the roots get a chance to soak up the moisture.
Boost growth with fertilizer or organic matter
This step is important during the early stages of planting because the tree needs all of the nutrients it can get to support healthy growth. After that, it’s sufficient enough to fertilize every spring. Use either organic fertilizer, compost, or even mulch to transfer some of the nutrients into the roots.

What’s not to love about evergreens? Evergreen trees deliver year-round color, provide much-needed shade, and can act as a windbreak against strong winds. These trees are typically needled and broad-leafed, and come in a wide range of colors - hunter green, silvery blue, yellow, copper, gray-green, blue-green, chartreuse, and variegated mixtures. The expansive size and dense foliage of the Leyland Cypress make it the ideal choice for creating natural borders lining the perimeter of your property.

This design is highly versatile and will complement any existing landscape.
