Green Team Planting Questions:

Please fill out this form to expedite your Green Team planting service.  Before filling out the form, please be sure you have all the answers for the required boxes, especially your Dig Safe number.

Dig Safe - Call 811 to have utility (gas, electric, cable, water, etc.) companies mark out where their lines are so they do not get disturbed when we dig or excavate below the soil surface.  It is the law to call them and we need an authorization ticket before we can schedule a planting.  The Dig Safe website contains terrific explanations and helpful information, but you must call 811 during their scheduled hours to get a ticket.  Please be aware water lines should be down 4', but sometimes they are not and some town water departments will not be notified or come out when calling Dig Safe.  You may have to call the town Water Department or DPW. 

Please call the store during store hours or email us if you have questions.

See the Dig Safe info above. We need an authorization number in order to schedule a planting. If for any reason you don't need one, put 1234
Do you have a Kennedy's flag(s)? *
Kennedy's provides flags at the front counter for you to place in the yard so Dig Safe and Kennedy's Green Team know where your plantings are going.
Sprinkler system *
Kennedy's does not carry irrigation parts with us for small plantings. Please mark where pipes and heads to save you an irrigation service call.
Please list and explain any challenges we might encounter if you have a heavy tree - are there any gates, stairs, hills, tight spaces or special situations that might require special manpower or equipment to get the plants or supplies to the planting location.
Size of Planting & Mulch Area *
A normal planting in the lawn or garden bed includes removing a circle of grass, weeds , groundcovers etc. and digging a hole a little wider than the size of the root ball. Then we spread a layer mulch in a small circle around the top of the root ball to protect the tree roots, retain moisture and suppress weeds.
Please explain if you need to us to dig out and remove more than the small circle around each plant purchased and bring more mulch to fill in between the plants, etc. Any undisclosed information about the scope of the project could result in delays or extra charges. Having all the info so we can be prepared with the right people, tools, equipment, allotted time, etc is appreciated.
Debris Removal *
We charge for removing and disposing of materials we dig up such as grass, weeds, roots, rocks, trash, etc. Should we take this material away?
Ex. we have a compost pile behind the shed to the right side of the property, but place any rocks at the edge of my veggie garden
Watering *
Do you want us to water your tree(s) after it is planted, if so please leave out a hose and or instructions below.
Tree Staking *
Larger trees, especially in windy areas and/or planted late in the season may need staking so they stay straight in the winter or before they root in at an angle. A Kennedy's salesperson can help you decide if you are not sure.
Please email us a photo of where the tree is going if there it is more than just a simple planting. It will help ensure we have the tools and equipment needed to do the job properly.
