Know Your Light

Posted on January 29, 2020 at 11:30 AM

Spring is just around the corner. You have this desire to either do or redo your landscape.  You have been looking at plants all over the internet.  You have picked out numerous ones that you like.  STOP HERE!!!!!

The first question I ask my customers is how much sunlight that the area you are wanting to plant this shrub, tree, etc. receives and what time of day the light is present.  Especially here in the south, this is the most important question to know the answer to. Our summers are hot and the sun rays intense.  Before spending your hard earned money, you need to know the answer to this question.

Over the years, I have found that a lot of people do not know where the sun rises and sets at their house. Before purchasing any plant, you need to know the answer to this question and a few more. How many hours does each location you are wanting to plant gets and from what time of day?Does the area get any shade at all?  Does the area get any light at all? The answers to these questions are imperative to picking the right plant for the right spot.

So starting now on a sunny day or before you purchase, take time to document the amount of light each area gets at 3 hour increments.  You can also just snap pictures of the area on your phone.  Doing so, will help you immensely in your decision of what to plant where.  It also helps us give you the best advise possible.

Don't throw your hard earned money away.  Do a little research and same yourself time and money.

Can't wait for Spring!!!!!!
