The Q&A Archives: Japanese Maple Trees

Question: hi, i want to plant a Tamukeyama Maple tree in my backyard but my backyard is always saturated. what would be the best place to plant the tree?

Answer: If you want your new maple tree to thrive, build a mound and plant it high. While maples appreciate moist soil, saturated soils will suffocate its roots. So, make a mounded island bed, plant your maple and then plant some companion plants on the island to make it a focal point in your backyard.
