Planting Mature Trees

mature tree plantingFinding a new perfect home, in the perfect neighborhood, on the perfect street is a once in a lifetime thing. For those lucky enough to experience this, it’s a joyous occasion! Perhaps so joyful you want to throw a lovely outdoor party in your new backyard. That’s when you realize; it’s a big open yard – not a single tree! Not a lick of comforting shade for your guests to saunter under, and planting seeds won’t get you anywhere fast. Well, why not rely on an already mature tree to be placed in your new lawn? It’s very possible, and you can turn your yard into a small forest overnight!

It’s almost like magic, to see an area transform in days with trees that are mature, rather than small plants that will flourish in many years’ time. Trees used for such purposes are explicitly grown  for replanting and are typically grown in large wooden boxes. Many retail nurseries carry various trees in all shapes and sizes to accent your yard with.

Make sure you have the right help handy! Planting mature trees is a very hard working job, and it is not recommended as a do it yourself project. The weight of the trees alone is typically too much for one person, even with the smaller 24-inch boxes. It is also essential that you have a clear path from the transport vehicle to the planting spot. The closer the better, as you’re not going to want to tear up your lawn by dragging the box, or tree itself, to the desired area. Another reason you’re going to want professional assistance, the tree(s) you’ve purchased, were not cheap and should be handled with care and planted correctly. Broken limbs (tree and human) and damage to the tree itself is not something you want to deal with when beautifying your yard.

So to make sure your housewarming party is a hit, keep your guests cool with some shade courtesy of your newly planted mature trees!

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

I am extremely pleased with the landscaping just completed by Mansfield Landscaping at my residence on Janeann Terrace. This is the 2nd time we’ve used Mansfield—shortly after we moved to The Villages in 2007 and this recent job. They know what they are doing, listen to and work with the customer. Steve Mansfield is one fair and honest person to do business with, his landscaping team is diligent, hard working with polite, pleasant personalities. I would highly recommend Mansfield to anyone interested in doing any landscaping. There is no longer a concern as to which lawn mower will be in my yard—and and I really like my ‘LESS IS MORE’ LANDSCAPING. Many positive comments have come from my neighbors. Thank you Mansfield Landscaping.

We would like to thank you and the crew of Mansfield Landscaping for the fine work done at our home. As with the previous work you have done for us, we were extremely pleased. It is unfortunate that it is so difficult to find people these days who take pride and ownership in their work and can be relied upon to do a job well. The Mansfield Landscaping crew was professional, dependable and timely. The hard work you and your crew gave to the project is commendable. The trees, plants and design you suggested have added beauty to our home.

If you ever need recommendations, feel free to use us as a reference.

Steve Mansfield and his crew are the best. Our fantastic landscaping was done in August. I happened to be in the front yard recently when Steve drove by. He stopped and asked how everything was going. His crew will wave when they go by. They do great work and are also very nice friendly people. We are really glad we had Mansfield as our landscaper!

I just had my entire landscape done by Steve Mansfield of Mansfield Landscaping. He did an excellent job, they had a huge job in front on them, because I have styled my scape closer to "up north" look because of the style of my house. Lots of plants, trees and loads of color flowers. This requires constant maintenance, on my part, which I love but not in the heat we had this summer. Consequently, it was overgrown, weedy, and not pretty. Steve and his crew came in, redid each bed, added more rock and/or mulch, and put in a few new colored plants for me. He also trimmed existing trees and shrubs and I'm very picky on what I like, and they did exactly as I requested. This is the 2nd time I've used Steve and I would HIGHLY recommend him.

Thank you for your great service. You did such a wonderful job on our lawn. I recommend you to every one. Mansfield Landscaping knows what they are doing.

Just had Mansfield landscape do our yard and am very happy with not only the work done, but with the large size and healthy quality of the plants and palms. The crew was wonderful and completed a major job in a half day. Extra plants were added and all the beds received extra mulching at no extra charge. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a good, reliable landscape company.
