Trees & Shrubs


Trees and shrubs are very important to maintaining your home’s value by beautifying your landscape. They provide a habitat for birds and wildlife and shade from the summer heat.

Sweet Peet® helps retain moisture, suppresses weeds and looks great around plantings.

Sweet Peet® Tip: Trees and Shrubs

Prepare a hole twice the size of the root ball being planted. Make a mix of 20% Sweet Peet® and 80% soil from the dug hole. After planting is placed in hole, use prepared mixture to back-fill around the root ball. Water and tamp in firmly to avoid air pockets. In areas of poor drainage the addition of coarse sand to the planting mix will improve drainage and aid in new root growth
