Landscape Installation Can Be Broken Up For A Variety Of Reasons
In the parrotia-ellipse section we are looking in the future for a lot of ground cover going in this area. Joseph likes to plant bare root cover so he can plant it a little closer together, it fills in better and has a much more natural look. It would not be a great idea to plant that right now since we're going into fall headed towards winter. Those roots wouldn't have a chance to establish themselves. Even aside from size of plant material, there are certain plants that dig better other times of the year. So he doesn't want to be digging oaks right now and bringing them onsite. It is much better for us to wait for the spring for that. Eric agrees, and adds, it will be so exciting to see all of that come together.
