Picking the Right Palms for Your Clients
As landscape designers and architects, it is imperative that you choose the right palms for the area you are working on. Making an incorrect choice could leave you with very displeased customers. Here are some tips for picking the right palms for your clients:
Know the tree’s size at maturity. It is important to keep in mind that the small tree you are preparing to install could grow to be fifty feet tall. Being certain that the tree’s mature size is not going to affect the rest of your landscape design is critical to success.
Know the weather. Palms are tropical plants and that means many of them can’t endure weather that gets into the freezing zone. In fact, for some species, even a small amount of frost can cause a good deal of damage.
Know the sunlight requirements. While you might be tempted to think that a tropical plant, like a palm, is completely tolerant to direct sun, that isn’t always the case. Some palm varieties actually appreciate shade. So, do some research on the palm options you have and be certain you know how much sun those palms will be exposed to based on where you intend to plant them.
Know the water necessities. We know that people often think palms are great with drought since so many of them are linked to dry, desert-like climates. However, the truth is, most palms are found near continuous water supplies. So, wherever you install your client’s palm, make sure that it will have enough water access to thrive. And be sure to water the new plant frequently while it grows.
