Soil Preparation

Soil Preparation Perth

Before installing your new trees from Screening Trees WA, and to ensure they have the best possible chance to establish and thrive quickly in your garden, we recommend the following:

Remove the existing topsoil/sand where the new trees are to be planted to a minimum of 100mm.

Build the soil quality by incorporating organic matter to the existing soil.

We recommend a consistent blend of 70% sand, 20% organic matter or humus and 10% clay.

Mix together and aerate the soil – the soil should be fairly dark and friable – but not too crumbly.

The organic matter you have just incorporated into the existing soil will contain organisms such as bacteria, fungus and nematodes, which will create a mineral source and luxury environment for your new trees!
