The hole was made deep enough to accept several small logs in the bottom. A thin layer of soil was added then watered to fill all the gaps around the logs. The shrub was planted directly on top of the logs. Over time, the logs will absorb and hold water, as well as provide an increased environment of beneficial fungi to the shrub’s root system. This planting practice will allow your shrubs to stay well hydrated during periods of drought. The decaying logs will also provide good organic nutrients for many seasons to come.
