Water geven is een kunst. Als je dit goed doet dan zullen uw vers aangeplante bomen zich snel optimaal ontwikkelen. Goed water geven wil zeggen niet te weinig maar ook niet te veel water geven. 

Dit is van groot belang het eerste jaar na aanplant, voornamelijk de eerste lente en zomer.

De plantensoort, standplaats, omgeving, bodem, het weer en de vorm bepalen hoeveel water een boom nodig heeft. Voor specifieke richtlijnen kan je onze instructies opvolgen.

Hier alvast een belangrijke tip bij de huidige droogte:
Je geeft beter enkele keren per week een grote hoeveelheid water dan dagelijks een beetje. Het is belangrijk dat het water regelmatig door kan dringen naar de diepere wortels.

Voor een duurzaam resultaat is het belangrijk te weten dat watergift altijd tijdelijk is.

Block,  cube and beam shapes provide structure and nature in gardens where a large trees are unable to freely develop. Being space-saving and low maintenance, they accentuate the architecture of buildings. These compact trees have a limited root growth so they can be planted close to hardened surfaces.
These trees are guided in a natural way. You will never find metal pipes or fittings in the crowns of our trees.
In addition to our standard sizes we offer these remarkable trees in high quality tailor-made solutions.
Standard sizes, available in multiple types and stem heights:

High quality, custom-made block-form trees


Most parasol trees require maintenance at least once a year. Some species prefer pruning twice a year.

The frequency of pruning can be compared to the maintenance of a hedge.
If you prune once a year, then you'll have more waste and the pruning itself will take longer.
A parasol tree should always be maintained with secateurs. Maintenance with hedge shears may have a nice effect temporarily, but creates long-term problems in the long run

Each  parasol shape requires its own manner of pruning, generally you take into account the following rules:

Slow growing parasol trees:
annual pruning
time of year is dependent on the species

Fast-growing parasol trees:
Annual pruning of young trees not yet self-sustaining phase
2-yearly pruning: work growth retardant and gives less pruning waste
time is dependent on the species

Low maintenance parasol trees:
You can choose parasol trees that need a 2-yearly prune or at most a slight thinning of the branches.

Maintenance parasol trees - General


It's all about the maintenance. Screens should be maintained as a hedge. Levels should be pruned using secateurs. Not every tree is suitable to be guided on screen. It depends on the nature of the tree.
Some trees behave very well if they are maintained as a hedge. For example, the hornbeam (Carpinus betulus). When maintained as a screen, the branch structure and the leaves are packed tightly together so that they are in competition with each other. One can assume that trees grown as hedges can handle this competition and can be guided smoothly on screen.
The Plane tree (Platanus x acerifolia), for example, is a typical tree that can only be maintained in levels (frames). The Plane tree is a tree that needs space to develop its branches and leaves. If you don't give it its space, the plane will react badly. The leaves of the Plane tree need light. If they are too close together, lots of hairs will form. Leaves that don't get enough ligh will turn yellow and fall off.You can see this in poorly maintained Plane trees.

What to choose?
If privacy is important, one can opt for the screen shape. This has the same effect of a hedge, but takes up less space than a hedge.
If privacy is less important, you can opt for levels. This application lets a lot of light through.

A screen is easy to maintain with the secateurs.
Frames or floors can be maintained on one side with the secateurs.
