What is the most common mistake you see other landscapers make in new installs?
9 out of ten times we get called to fix another guy's mistakes, I see two things right off the bat: 1.) Improper preparation
2.) Low grade materials JMO.......
Ditto! Its all in the prep. and the reason I see for lousy prep is not having the right equipment and/or not knowing how to use it.
Their price is low.
Planting trees to deep
not untying the rope wrapped around the trunk
improper or no bed preparations
wrong plants in the wrong place.
trees, bushes planted too close to buildings
People coning mulch around trees instead of doing it the right way and Plato it.
All of the above!!!!!
agree w/ above & add improperly or unstaked plant material!
Mulch volcanos., not pulling the soil away from the top of the root ball where extra soil has covered the flare of the trunk, planting on loose soil so the entire planting sinks and drowns.
whats Plato it? and to avoid the sinking, do you stomp on the good soil you put under and around the root ball? I know not to do the valcano and i know not to pile at trunk just curios about the expression.
