  5. It may be possible to plant the Japanese Maple where the middle Thuja is if it’s planted a few inches above grade as that location will stay cooler as the surrounding plants get larger, but other locations are possible.

    [Easiest, best other location would be the front bed in front of your house, finding room for it there. Other than that, eastern side of the house but it might be difficult to find a spot with the AC units, the crawl space door, drainage lines, and the fence gate to work with.]

  6. The Eleagnus shrubs in the back were uneven in color, some looking chlorotic others looking nice. They could be fertilized one time as well to see how they respond. I would not fertilize them again, however, as they will soon be large. If they are Elaeagnus X Ebbingei, then they would be okay as long as kept pruned. If they are Elaeagnus pungens, then that is the more invasive kind. That type has thorns on it, have you noticed any thorns? Have you seen any tags hanging off the plants?

    $60 Fertilize shrubs with slow-release fertilizer 12 shrubs @ $5/each = $60

    TRENCHING is digging out 3 channels perpendicular to root ball of the tree that span the mulched area, each about 18″ long, 12″ wide, and 8″ deep, clay soil is dug out, broken up, mixed with compost, and refilled in the trench so that tree roots have a transition zone where roots can grow before getting into the harder surrounding clay. Trees that sit slightly loose may be able to be corrected at this time by filling underneath the root ball with topsoil to stabilize the tree’s footing.

    FERTILIZING is adding 2-year fertilizer tablets with micronutrients in appropriate amount for tree size into the soil.

    MULCHING is adding triple-shredded hardwood mulch to the supplement the current mulch (which is a good type) to get a layer 2-3″ deep, mulch should be kept off of tree trunks to prevent decay.

    Long term the mulched beds should *ideally* grow to be as wide as 50% of the tree’s height, this mulch will continuously breakdown and enrich the hard clay soil underneath so that the tree roots can grow more easily into new soil. This also keeps grass roots out of the zone where the tree root’s feeding tips are located.
