Probably the most single important factor caring for newly planted trees and shrubs. Newly planted plants have not extended their roots into the soil, adequate moisture must reach the root ball for survivability.

Typically, new plantings require 1 inch of rain per week or that equivalent. Soil type will determine watering needs. If your soil is sandy, new plantings may require more than an inch of rain per week.
