Wallitsch Watering FAQ

You ask the questions and we have the answers! Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about watering...

How often should I water newly planted trees and shrubs? 

Spring: When planting in spring, water every 2-3 days during the first few weeks to support root establishment. Monitor soil moisture and adjust frequency based on weather conditions. Make sure plants are moist but not waterlogged. 

Summer: If planted in summer be sure to water more frequently until roots are established. Trees and shrubs need at least 1 inch of water per week. During long dry spells, check your soil to make sure it is getting sufficient water. Water in the morning to prevent excessive evaporation and also mulch around them to help them retain water. 

Fall: When planting in the fall we tend to get some rain as well. Make sure they get about 1 inch of water per week. Soil might continue to be moist so routine checks of soil moisture is great to keep them happy. Water the plant each week until the ground is frozen. 

When do I stop watering in the winter?

When the ground freezes or when it is time to disconnect your outside hose. During the winter it is cooler and has more rain or snow. During prolonged dry spells and slightly warmer temperatures be sure to check your plants and give them some water. Before a deep freeze try to give your plants some water to give insulation to their roots.

How much water should I use? 

Plants need about one inch of water per week. For trees and shrubs that are new be sure to trickle your hose with a stream no bigger than your pinky and leave on the root ball of the plant for 30mins to an hour.
