When is the best time of year to do a landscape installation.
Fall and spring will generally be the best times to plant. Plants that have been freshly removed from a nursery in the fall will be more dormant and less likely to stress from transplanting. During the dormant season the plant's root structure is allowed to grow and become established before energy is used in the spring and the summer to produce top growth. Regular water is also essential to help plants survive.
