How to Plant Low Maintenance Plants

First, make sure the low maintenance plant you choose grows well in your growing zone. Next, be sure your site is appropriated for the plant. Determine the sunlight and soil requirements.

Now you are ready to purchase your plant. Once you receive your plant, water it well and keep the soil moist until you are ready to plant. Water your potted plant thoroughly immediately before planting. Dig a hole at least twice as wide as the root ball of your low maintenance plant. Place your plant evenly in the hole. The top of the root ball should be slightly higher than the soil line. Backfill the soil and tamp it down gently to remove air pockets. Mulch your plant with 1 to 2 inches of mulch extended at least a few inches past the rootzone or drip zone, whichever is larger. Mulch helps the ground retain moisture and reduces weeds. Finally, water deeply until the ground is completely saturated.
