Plan Before Purchasing and Planting
The tropical aesthetic of your landscape will be defined by the palm trees you choose, but you must have a plan before buying and planting them. Each variety has features that will have an impact on the functionality, future outlook, and successful appearance of your design.
Elements of your plan should include considering the following:
- Soil drainage
- Sun exposure
- Wind exposure
- Nearby water sources
- Irrigation requirements
- Soil nutrition requirements
- Appropriate maximum tree heights
Palm Trees Create Shade – Quite a Benefit for Southwest Florida
Shade is an investment that takes time to pay off. The more you invest, the larger tree you can purchase, but in most instances, full shade will take years to develop. As you shop, consider the maximum height and breadth of the tree you’re purchasing to make sure that you don’t overwhelm the space or destroy your home’s foundation or septic field.
When your budget allows, keep in mind that older trees handle the shock of transport better than younger, smaller, and more vulnerable options. They also cost more, though and require professional installation. Come check out our tree farm or nursery to get an idea of the variety possible when planning palm tree landscaping.
