HOW BIG IS A “SCOOP” OF BULK MATERIALS SUCH AS MULCH OR GRAVEL?

¾ cubic yard


WHEN CAN I PLANT TREES, SHRUBS & PERENNIALS?

The best times to plant are spring and fall when air temperatures are cooler and soil remains warm from the summer months. Technically, you can plant any time of the year as long as the ground isn’t frozen.


DOES CASEY’S OFFER LANDSCAPING SERVICES?

We do! Casey’s is known for our unique landscape designs using the finest plant material and hardscapes. Due to the time involved in quote preparation, we charge a $50.00 consultation fee that is applied as a credit towards your landscaping project if we do the work or if you purchase your plants from Casey’s. To schedule your consultation, call 812-537-3800.


SOMETHING’S WRONG WITH MY PLANT. CAN CASEY’S HELP ME?

We will do our best. The key is early intervention. If possible, bring in a piece of the problem plant, pictures of the planting, and its surrounding area. This helps with the diagnostic process.


WHEN DO I TRIM MY SHRUBS?

The plant’s bloom time determines when to trim. In general, if your plant is spring-blooming, trim right after it finishes blooming. If your plant blooms later than June, pruning in late fall or early spring (before new growth) is best.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WATER MY PLANT?

Depending on soil type, how long your plant has been installed, and how much rainfall and sunlight it’s receiving will determine its watering needs. Always check soil moisture before watering. In general, if the soil is moist, it does not need additional water. If it’s dry to the touch, watering is needed. Newer plants need more attention during the first 1-2 years, especially during the summer months. Even well-established plants benefit from supplemental watering during hot, dry periods.


WHEN SHOULD I SEED MY LAWN?

The best time to seed your lawn is fall, once summer weeds and pests have dissipated and air temperatures have cooled, giving grass seedlings a better chance of establishment. The second-best time is late winter/early spring.


WHEN SHOULD I FERTILIZE MY TREES & SHRUBS?

Fertilization of trees & shrubs is best applied during the spring when the plants are actively growing.


WILL CASEY’S ENGRAVE BOULDERS?

We have a large selection of landscape boulders, however, we do not engrave them.


DOES CASEY’S OFFER A WARRANTY ON PLANTS?

It is our policy to sell only healthy plants. Because much of the success rate of a plant depends on the homeowner’s after-planting care, we cannot offer a warranty on plant purchases.


WHY ISN’T MY HYDRANGEA BLOOMING?

There are several factors to look into when asking why a hydrangea shrub isn’t blooming. Pruning at the wrong time, sun exposure, late freeze damage, and soil conditions are all possible causes of non-blooming hydrangea shrubs.


WHEN SHOULD I PRUNE MY HYDRANGEA?

Most hydrangeas should be pruned in early spring.


WHEN SHOULD I PRUNE MY KNOCK-OUT ROSES?

Knock-out roses should be pruned right before they bloom, preferably early April. Prune lightly throughout the  season to encourage continuous blooms.
