WATERING GUIDELINES FOR NEWLY INSTALLED TREES AND SHRUBS Spring and Fall: The first week the plants are in the ground water 3 times a week. The second week the plants are in the ground water 2 times a week. The third week, water one time a week. Continue watering the plants once a week for the first 6 months the plants are in the ground. * Summer: The first two weeks the plants are in the ground water 3 times a week. The third and fourth weeks, water 2 times a week. The fifth week, water once a week. Continue watering the plants once a week for the first 6 months the plants are in the ground. * Winter: For the first 6 months water once a week provided that the ground is not frozen. * *NOTES: • The first 6 months are the most critical. The first year to three years is important and during any hot, dry periods, supplemental water should be provided. • 1 to 1 ½ inches of rainfall occurring in a day substitutes as one watering. • To gauge how much water to give, use a rain gauge set next to your plant and a showerhead-watering wand. Make passes across the rain gauge as you water the root ball area of the plant. You can stop when it reaches 1½ inch. Or, give each plant 1 gallon of water per foot in height (i.e. for a 5’ tall tree, use 5 gallons of water) • Less frequent, deep watering is healthier for plants than frequent shallow watering. • Slow watering is more effective. The water penetrates the soil better and there is less runoff. • A 3” layer of mulch at the root zone of a tree or shrub will help to conserve moisture. Be sure to keep the mulch off the trunk. • Do not get water on the leaves during mid-day. This could lead to sun scorch. Try to water in the morning or late afternoon. It is a good idea to hose plant leaves off from time to time to help spray off potential pest problems but doing so too often can lead to fungal diseases that can be spread by splashing water.
