A Simple Selection Guide to Choose the Perfect Plants for your Garden

Selecting the perfect plant for your garden is a very exciting job. But sometimes we make mistakes while choosing a plant for our landscape and don’t get the desired greenery in our backyard. So, if you are planning to buy some new plants for your garden, read along you will get some great tips for planting trees.

Why do I need to be careful while choosing plants?

A tree requires the perfect balance of water and nutrient in the soil, a comfortable climate, and adequate sunlight to thrive. If you take away any one of these four factors the plant loses its attractiveness. So, if your tree is losing its shape you should know that your tree is not getting at least one of the requirements.

Now, let us discuss those tips for planting trees.

Consider your available space and the size of the tree for your garden

We often do not calculate the available space for our garden. This is why, when we choose the wrong plants for our garden they can either outgrow their designated place or do not cover the entire area as per our expectations. So, you need to be a little calculative for your garden space. 

If your garden space is small, then Olive, Silver Burch, Magnolia, Crab Apple, etc. could be the best trees to plant.

If you have a lot of garden space, then Oak, Maple, Dogwood, Cherry, etc. could thrive there. While large spaces allow you to plant large trees. But if you are not sure, you can always contact the certified and experienced arborists from Branch Specialists.

Consider the function of your trees

Remember different types of trees are used for different functions. Some trees can offer many functions and benefits, whereas some plants can only offer one function or benefit like shade for your landscape, bearing fruit and flower, or simply enhancing the looks and value of your property.

Shade trees like Poplar and Maple, help our homes keep cooler in the summer. 

Evergreen trees like Deodar Cedar, Norway Spruce, Cypress, etc. provide windbreaks and help protect your privacy. 

But if you choose the best plants to plant in your backyard, they can function as stormwater runoff, filter pollutants in the air, add oxygen to your environment, and reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Consider your Climate

Each tree species prefers a specific amount of sunlight, water, nutrients, moisture, wind, and temperature ranges. At Depew, the summers are warm and partly cloudy while the winters are freezing, snowy, windy, and mostly cloudy.

Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 19°F to 80°F and rarely goes below 4°F or above 87°F. So, you have to choose accordingly. The experts from Branch Specialists can help you choose the best trees to plant.

Consider your soil

Often during plant selection, we forget to consider the type of our garden’s soil. Depew is a small village but it has a little diverse soil type. So, you need to be very careful and don’t forget to follow this tip for planting trees while choosing the plants. In some areas, the soil is nutrient-rich while in some areas it lacks necessary nutrients.

The experts from Branch Specialists can solve your soil problem but it could take time.
