Outdoor Gardens: Trees & Shrubs

Posted by on Feb 27, 2012 in Retail Nursery | 0 comments

Outdoor Gardens: Trees & Shrubs

We are the outdoor garden specialists. Highland Gardens only carries trees and shrubs that do well in our area. The key to a successful landscape is planting the right plant in the right area. Concerns that need to be addressed are mature size, deer resistance, sun, shade, water, color, texture, etc. With our in-house landscape designers we are sure to help you add interest to any new or existing landscape and outdoor gardens.

Landscape Designers

We have in-house Landscape Designers.  They will come to your yard for a fee and work with you on a design.  Call Leslie at (801) 473-3000 or Susan at (801) 602-9121.

Guarantee Rules

We offer 100% guarantee on the purchase price of the tree or shrub (not tropicals) for in-store credit.


  1. You must have the receipt
  2. Bring in the dead plant-call first to make sure we think you have qualified – (801) 756-9999.
  3. Must be planted in the ground–we don’t guarantee them if you planted them in pots.
  4. Definition of a dead tree: break a small limb and look at the wood.  If there is no green then it is likely dead.  Check more than one branch and make sure there is no green before you dig it up and bring it in.  No green leaves or swelling buds. Some trees and shrubs take longer to leaf out in your area or because of the tree or shrub cultivar.

How to plant trees and shrubs

As a general rule do not plant any deeper than the vertical size the tree or shrub is in the pot, so the tree or shrub does not sink in the soil.  But, you should make the hole twice or more as wide as the pot.  Mix in about 50% Nutrimulch with the native soil.  Keep the root ball and graft above the dirt line so it will never be water drenched and drown your tree.

Water Amounts and Frequency

Water the tree or shrub when you plant and the next day.  Then two days later, then three days later, add a day between waterings until you get to one week and continue weekly for this year.

For shrubs water weekly the following year.  For trees, the next year and thereafter water monthly but deeply.  The amount of water should be to fill the basin (about the width of the plant or wider) around the tree once let drain and then a second time and that is it.


You should fertilize the plants when you plant them and at least every Spring, some need more.  We have great fertilizers called Root and Grow, Dr. Earth,  or Nature’s Source you can use.
