When to Plant a Cedar Hedge?

The planting of a cedar hedge, trees, and shrubs can be done from mid-April to mid-October, except during heatwaves. For new houses, your terrain must be backfilled before you can plant your cedar hedges.

Among our different cedars for sale (white cedar, nigra cedar, brandon cedar, and Smaragd cedar), you can choose the one that suits you best and meets your privacy needs. We will explain the characteristics of each species to facilitate your choice.

Soil Testing

Before planting a cedar hedge, we can arrange for a soil testing by an agronomist (upon request). By knowing the soil deficiencies, our specialists will determine if they need to amend it, i.e., improve its properties to promote rooting and growth. We will know what types of fertilizers to add to promote rooting and growth.

Acidic soils need lime addition, while alkaline soils need sulfur addition. For clayey or heavy soils, it is recommended to add forest compost in addition to fertilizer and manure, while raising the soil so that the roots can breathe.

Adding cedar fertilizer provides proper nutrition and increases the energy and resilience of cedars. They can then take their place against weeds while resisting pests better.

Preparing the Soil for Cedar Planting

To prepare the soil for cedar planting, you must first remove the lawn to reach a width of 17 to 25 inches. We then turn the soil to a depth of 20 inches and remove roots, rocks, and weeds. We then add soil (if needed) as well as fertilizer and compost (upon request).

We level the surface by raking the soil, and we plant the cedars at a spacing distance depending on your privacy needs. It is recommended to give your cedars space to avoid root competition and drying out. The hedge will be less dense quickly but will be more beautiful and durable.

After planting your cedars, we install an irrigation hose at the base of the cedars, then add soil and about 8 cm of mulch (upon request).
