Clearing And Marking Land
After choosing the area where trees will be planted, property should be raked. If weeds are growing nearby, a weed pulling tool can be used to remove them from the ground. After measuring the length and width of the property that was cleared, an individual can decide how many evergreen trees to purchase and how large they would like each one to be. Ground marking paint can be used to mark the spots where trees will be planted. Marks should have an even amount of space between them so that trees provide the property with a uniform border.
Planting Trees And Adding Mulch Or Stones
After purchasing evergreen trees, each tree’s roots will need to remain moist while holes are being dug. After adding water to roots with a hose, pieces of burlap can be wrapped around roots and material can be secured with twine. A large spade should be used to dig holes across marked property. Before planting trees, burlap pieces need to be removed from the bottom of each one.
One hand needs to grasp the trunk of a tree to prevent a tree from tipping over while shovelfuls of dirt are added to a hole. After all of the trees are planted, dirt should be flattened around the base of each evergreen. A layer of mulch or decorative stones can be added around trunks to enhance the color of the trees and to prevent weeds from growing on property.
