Soil for evergreen arborvitae
We just got sod put in 7 days ago and I want to plant a bunch of 1.75 gallon evergreen arbs.
I was told to:
- dig a hole as deep as the bucket and 2 - 3 times the width.
- put the arb in, and fill it in with a 50/50 mix of the dirt plus some peat
- leave no sod around the trunk of the arb in the size of the hole that we back fill
Does that make sense? We had a few inches of topsoil put down before the sod went in, and the soil is a bit on the sandy side.
Thoughts? I just want to make sure that before I start, I do it right :)
