Knowledge and Experience Ensure Garden Success

Seeds and plants that aren’t planted in the right region, at the right time, with the right amount of sun and water will not last. There are many things to consider when seeding and planting your garden and landscaping.

  • black sprouting soilKnow Your Seed – Different plant seeds germinate or sprout at different times of the year. It can get confusing, but a professional landscaper like Landwork Contractors can guide you.
  • Soil Temperature –Cold temperatures keep the seed from sprouting or getting nutrients. Warm soil increases photosynthesis in plants which requires more nutrients and water than might be available. Choose the right temperature for your seeds.
  • Sunlight – All plants need sunlight, but some need more and others need less. As you plot your garden consider where the sun shines most and least.
  • Water – As you plan your garden, be sure to know how much water your plants will need. Plant thirsty plants where they can accumulate water and drier plants in elevated spaces.
  • Depth of Seed – Different seeds need different depths. If you plant a seed too deep it can’t grow enough to break the surface, too shallow and its roots will be exposed.
  • Type of Seeding – Different seeds need different planting methods. Some can be broadcast on top of soil, some must be grown in shallow soil then replanted and some must be dug in a few inches.

Different seeds need different types of soil, sunlight, water and temperatures. Correctly planting seeds makes the difference between success and failure.
