Project: Columnar Norway Spruce Trees
Spruce trees? What? Yes – let’s plant some Columnar Norway Spruce trees. We finished the split rail fence a few weeks ago and we wanted to highlight the end where it opens up to the driveway. What better way than with some stunning trees. These trees are perfect for our climate and they will grow to be quite big – 6 feet wide by 20 feet tall. Okay, time to plant them!
Columnar Norway Spruce Trees
First, pick out your trees.
We found these trees at Classic Landscaping which is only about 12 minutes away from our home.
Load them up and bring them home – be sure you plant right away! Grab some fresh dirt, too.
Lily supervising – she likes projects that involve car rides.
Once you’ve got your tree, pick your spot. Be sure to stand back and take a look from different angles – you only want to dig once, trust me.
Time to dig. Dig a hole twice as wide and 1.5 times as deep.
Take the tree out of the pot and massage the roots. You want a bit of the soil to fall away. Then, place it in the hole and fill with the fresh dirt.
Pat down the sides, make sure the tree is straight and then water it. That’s it, you’re done!
Water it every day for about 10 days and then you’re in good shape.
Well, there you have it – two beautiful Columnar Norway Spruce trees anchoring our split rail fence. Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you again this weekend. Time for some fall treats, don’t you think?
