Are you in the process of landscaping your yard? If you are, you have some important decisions to make. One of these decisions is what tree you should plant in your yard. When picking out a tree, you want to make an informed decision. Read on for tips for choosing the right tree.
The first thing you want to do before you start shopping for trees is pick the place you want to plant the tree. Maybe you want to plant a tree in your yard to improve curb appeal, or perhaps you want to add privacy by planting a tree in front of a window in your home. Whatever the case may be, you want to think about the size of the tree when you plant it, as well as the growing space of the tree. Do you research when selecting from trees to be sure you don’t select something that will outgrow your yard.
The second thing to consider when picking out a tree is the type of growing conditions the tree requires. You can research your hardiness zone to better understand what type of climate you live in. You can also look into the type of soil in your yard, the amount of moisture your yard gets, and the amount of light your yard receives. You want to make sure the growing conditions of your yard are suitable for the tree you select.
Up next, think about outdoor living. If you have a patio space or pool, take these things into consideration when picking out a tree. Putting a tree near your patio can provide comfortable shade in the summer, but a tree over your pool can lead to unwanted twigs, leaves, and fruit in the water.
Lastly, keep the colder months of the year in mind. When the temperature drops, some trees may lose their leaves and take on a whole new look. You want to select a tree that is best for your yard year-round.
