Here are a few general tips on how to water a newly planted tree in your yard regardless if it is for a home or a business here in the Georgetown, Sun City Texas area.
The fact is when trees are first planted, the roots a traditionally located within the root ball. So the tree need to be watered in a way to encourage for it to extend its roots outside the original root ball, to become firmly established within the soil around the tree itself.
With the new tree, watering the dirt/soil under its canopy will not only keep the soil moist but will also promote healthy growth among the tree roots.
It is recommended from various irrigation professionals that in moderate climate this should be done twice every week, and then should be increase to three times a week during the summer months. If there is however a rain one day during the week this could be counted towards the minimum number each week.
