Please water your new perennials well after we’ve planted them. Water only when the plants need it. Let the plants dry out between watering (however, don't let them get bone-dry or wilted). Probe the soil and if it is dry in the top 4 to 5 inches, then it is time to water.
Annuals need water to thrive. Please water them deeply after we have planted your garden. You need the top 4” of soil to be moist. Always check by poking your finger into the soil to determine whether you’ve reached this level.
Please water your lawn every day for 3 days if possible. Otherwise the nematodes will not reach the grubs at the roots of your lawn and will dry up and die off without completing their job.
Newly installed sod has very important watering needs. Proper watering immediately after installation will ensure the turf gets established, and it will also have an impact on how well the lawn continues to flourish for years to come. Avoid hand sprinkling because it cannot provide the necessary uniformity as most people do not have the patience, time or "eye" to adequately measure what is being applied across any larger areas of lawn.
Do not allow the roots to dry out or your tree may die. It doesn’t take long for this to happen and nothing is sadder than a row of dead cedars or a leafless tree in a garden.
Dry roots are the chief cause of planting failures. After receiving your new shrubs you should water as soon as possible. Watering should penetrate deep into the soil to encourage strong deep root development. Always check the soil before watering to make sure it is dry. The soil should not be spongy or soggy as over-watering can cause the plants roots to suffocate.
