Answer: Your landscaper gave you good advice. The majority of plants will suffer from transplant shock, which often shows up as leaves that yellow and fall off. Fertilizer forces a plant to grow, which isn't a good idea when it's under stress. Allow the plant's root system to establish itself. In addition, don't overwater. Overwatering can also show up as yellow leaves. Keep the soil moist, but not wet, surrounding and slightly beyond the entire root zone. Plant roots need oxygen as well, and if spaces between soil particles are completely filled with water, there's no room for oxygen. Plants do try to teach us patience! Good luck.
