Your well-planned yard will contain trees that grow well in the soil and moisture of your neighborhood. Your trees will be properly placed to avoid collisions with power lines and buildings, and the aesthetics will increase your property value.
“A proper landscape plan takes into consideration a few different factors including tree height and width. For example: Will the tree bump into anything when it is fully grown?” said Tim Sime, owner of Jolly Lane Greenhouse in Rapid City. A columnar tree will grow in less space. Round and V-shaped species provide the most shade.
Sime said customers should decide between deciduous or coniferous trees. It is important to decide whether or not you want a tree that loses its leaves in the winter.
“Fruit trees are another option to consider,” said Sime, “but placement is important because no one wants a mess on busy sidewalks.”
The professionals at the Rapid City garden center can tell customers the soil, sun, and moisture requirements for all the trees indigenous to the area. They know the hardiness of each tree and what temperature extremes a tree can be expected to tolerate and grow.
Trees have different growth rates, and slow-growing species typically live longer than fast-growing species. “Know your yard and your expectations before you shop for a tree,” advised Sime.
