What to Do Before You Buy
In anticipation of your palm tree purchase, you should prepare your property. Just as you get your home ready for a new pet or family member, your landscape should be in the best position possible to welcome your new palm tree or other planting to a healthy, primed environment best suited for its successful acclimation.
You should first test your soil and ensure that drainage is good. Most of us in Southwest Florida don’t have to worry about clay soil. When clay soil is a problem, however, you’ll need to adjust its composition. While having this done professionally is ideal, you can use palm potting soil, dig deeply into the soil, and adjust the soil yourself with a bit of time and effort invested into the process. Once you have the right sandy mixture and reach the ideal pH, your landscape will be good to go.
How to Make Your Selection
Choosing the right palm for your property will depend on several factors. What purpose do you want the palm to fulfill? Are you in search of shade from the sweltering Florida sun, a privacy or wind screen around your backyard pool area, or a nice decorative element, either as an accent or as a focal feature? Different varieties will meet each of these demands. Whether you arrange for an on-property consultation or come armed for your shopping experience with pictures and an ideal of what you’d like to do, our professional staff will be incredibly helpful while you make your decision.
Once you know the best type of palm tree for your yard’s functional and aesthetic goals, making sure to choose only healthy specimens should be the next goal. This is another step that is easily left to experts, and you can trust the experienced professionals on our staff. However, the savvy consumer is always ready to verify for themselves the accuracy of any professional’s suggestions. Check for brown or yellow areas, spots with bug activity, webbing, or other issues.

The root ball is vulnerable to damage and stress, so this chore is yet another that is best left to the professionals at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape.
