Frequently asked questions
When can you plant a tree?
Deciduous trees can be planted from late November and for as long as they are dormant during the winter (i.e. for as long as they have no leaves and no new leaves have started to emerge). The planting season for trees with root balls runs until the end of April. De Limieten also has a large supply of trees grown in pots and containers that can be delivered and planted all year round.
I have no experience with planting large trees. Can you do this for me?
This is no problem for us! We have long had our own delivery service that transports trees safely to your location and then plants then professionally. If necessary, we will make arrangements for a crane or other machinery to place the tree in the right location.
My landscaper has little experience with planting large trees. Can you help him with this?
We would be glad to work with a landscaper who knows your garden and its soil. After discussing the project with us, your landscaper can do much of the initial work such as digging the planting holes. We will then assist your landscaper with the actual planting and provide maintenance tips. In this way, success is assured!
Does De Limieten also design gardens?
Yes, we have a special design department that creates designs for gardens of all sizes and kinds. Inspired by our plants and trees, we create the most beautiful designs. You can make an appointment with the design department without any obligation.
Can I hire your services for various kinds of pruning?
Yes, of course. Our professionals will be glad to come to your location. We specialise in form pruning – from espaliered trees, to hedges, to any conceivable kind of geometrically clipped plants.
