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

We have just completed a large landscaping job with Steve Mansfield and are totally pleased and impressed with the quality of the work, the overall appearance and the end product. The job was completed within a week of the estimate and far below other estimates. With those estimates the jobs could not have been started for over a month, at a much higher cost. We went to the nursery with our outside pictures and chose the specific trees we wanted in our yard. This was a long process, but well worth the effort. Steve likes to talk, but he estimated the job that we wanted with the exact trees we wanted to our total satisfaction.

If you want to see an absolutely FANTASTIC job done by Steve Mansfield and his crew... come by my house tomorrow and you will be amazed.

Steve's been advising me for years to change what I had originally developed into something a little more stylish, but being the hard-headed Italian I am, I kept refusing until this year. I'm sick of our cold winters that kill all my pretty flowers so I let him convince me to change it all to a completely new look. I love to work with Steve, he sure knows his landscaping stuff and he may come off with a gruff exterior, but down deep, the man is a teddy bear and very easy to work with.

Oh Boy, I can't tell you how excited I am. The transformation is unbelievable. Steve and his guys were on the job for 2 days and through their creative talents came up with a wall/bed design utilizing many of my existing trees, unlike anything I have seen in the past.

Recently we decided to change our “blah” landscaping to something more “Outstanding” and maintenance free. After contacting several companies we met with, and, chose “Mansfield Landscaping”. They were able to provide not only exceptional advice but expert workmanship and changed our “humdrum” property into a “vibrant and exciting garden spot. Not only are we personally pleased with the services provided by “Mansfield Landscaping”, but we also wholeheartedly endorse and recommend their services to anyone in need of landscaping.

Mansfield Landscaping LLC sets the benchmark for professional landscaping and exemplary service. Having received horticultural awards for my self-designed/created gardens and hardscape in Pennsylvania, I met my match with Steve Mansfield. I conveyed my ideas, wants, and needs for my Floridian garden/landscaping project. It encompassed a very large challenging space (front and rear of home). Steve took the task at hand adding enhancements and making it more than what I thought it could be. The attention we and this project received from Steve, Ron, the foremen, crew and Lynn (customer service rep) was outstanding. Their expertise, service, and dedication to this project was beyond what was expected. Steve's work ethics and professional attention are commendable. Once you meet Steve, you'll have no reason to look elsewhere. His word is 'gold'. We invite you to our home to see our beautiful lanai setting (garden and patios) and front landscape.

I have always had a positive experience with Mansfield Landscaping. We shopped many potential landscapers and none of them had the industry knowledge and level of customer service I received from Manfield. Additionally, we have continued to have great service by this crew AFTER we paid them, and to me, that is the true test of a good company.

INCREDIBLE WORK BY MANSFIELD LANDSCAPING!! After obtaining numerous landscaping estimates to help transform our extremely large, unattractive corner lot in the Village of Largo we hired Mansfield. We sure made the right choice!! The owners, Steve and Ron, were extremely professional and prompt and spent a lot of time talking with us on the phone and in person to make sure we got what we wanted. As promised, they started the work 10 days later and COMPLETELY transformed the look of our entire home!! Our property went from the "eyesore of the neighborhood" (a quote from one of our neighbors) to stunning!! I am not exaggerating one bit. During the time Ron and his excellent crew were planting the 11 very large palm trees and countless plants and flowers and the past week when we've been watering all the landscaping at least 100 people have stopped by in their cars and golf carts to comment on what an amazing job Mansfield did!!! We couldn't be happier and can 100% recommend them to everyone.

We are very pleased with the results in both our yard and lanai. Steve warned us some plants were not hardy and when the frosts got them, he replaced a lot of them without being asked, and with no charge. We thoroughly recommend Mansfield Landscaping.
