SOIL

Make sure to check what kind of soil you have in the location you plan to plant in. This can be done with a soil meter, or by bringing in a soil sample to the U of S to get a reading. You should be well aware of the acidity in your soil and the contents as every plant has different requirements from the next.

SIZE OF LOCATION

Make sure you measure the size of your garden bed, yard, or location of where you will be planting. This will determine what tree/shrub and how many you will be able to plant there and have them be successful.

HOW MUCH SUNLIGHT

Just like our houseplants and annuals, our trees and shrubs also have specific light requirements. Here at Dutch Growers, we measure how much sunlight your yard gets by time! How many hours in a day does your location receive full, bright sun? How many hours does your location stay in the shade? This will determine what plants will and own't work for you!

STYLE & INSPIRATION

The final thing we suggest to come in with is some inspiration on what you like! Search on Pinterest for a certain look, browse Google for trees you love, and figure out the style you're going for. Even if we don't have a specific tree or shrub in stock, we can always suggest others similar (or even better)!
