While uprooting trees and shrubs may seem like an easy task, the task of transplanting plants while moving to San Antonio can be extremely difficult. Many transplants die once they are uprooted due to improper removal or installation. If you are bringing some plants from your previous home to your new home in San Antonio, polish up on your green thumb skills with some tips from the All My Sons Moving & Storage about transplanting plants like trees and shrubs while moving to San Antonio.

1. Prior to transplanting, you will need to determine whether the plant needs sun or shade, the spacing requirements, and watering needs. Make sure to determine the location wisely based upon these parameters, this is a key component to the success of transplanting plants.

2. Next, before you dig up the tree or shrub, you will need to dig a hole in the new location that you have selected. Once you dig up the plant, the longer the roots go without a home, the lower your chances for a successful transplant.

3. Once you reach the bottom of the hole, do not break up the soil beneath. This does not help the plant’s roots penetrate the soil, it can cause the tree or shrub to sink, inviting rot.

4. Once your hole is prepared you should then dig up the tree or shrub for transplanting. You should not dig directly next to the base of the mature tree or shrub rather, start digging about 3-5 feet out from the base to include the mass of the roots.

5. Now that you have the plant uprooted, you should place the plant in the newly prepared hole. Once inside the hole, begin to fill in the dirt and stamp out any air pockets while watering. Stamping out air pockets will prevent the shrub or tree from shifting.

6. Mound up the soil in a ring around the newly transplanted plant, forming a berm that will catch water like a basin. This will help you to achieve the main objective from here on out- keeping the plant’s roots well-watered until they can become established on their own.

7. Place mulch around the plant, approximately 3 inches out, to allow for aeration and prevent rodents from nibbling on the trunk of the newly transplanted plant.

8. The most important step to transplanting plants when moving to San Antonio is to water, water, water! Watering is as essential as anything to success in shrub and tree transplanting.

Originally starting out with lesser-known events, National Poetry Month in San Antonio has exceeded beyond everyone’s expectations, including your San Antonio moving company. This comes as no surprise considering the city has responded positively to the numerous readings, workshops, festivals, and competitions held throughout the month.

According to San Antonio Poet Laureate Dr. Carmen Tafolla, “Involving everyone, from the preschooler who’s just memorized their first poem to the teen Slam Poet to the Spanish-speaking great-grandparent who’s reciting the lines they learned 80 years ago, these events bring the diverse elements of our community together in a celebration of the power of the spoken word, and expand our awareness of the beauty and the relevance of poetry in our daily lives.”

Families who will be using their San Antonio moving company to relocate to the area strongly support the month-long celebrations. Offering an alternative to typical high school house parties, National Poetry Month in San Antonio offers the opportunity for San Antonio teens to do more after school instead of just playing on their phones.

Easter in the Park. One of the many free San Antonio Easter events, Pickrell Park invites every one of all ages to arrive at 9:30 a.m. on March 26 to take part in one of their five egg hunts.

Needless to say, using your San Antonio movers can give anyone culture shock regardless of where you are relocating from. Southerners are known to do things a little bit differently, and the home of the Alamo is no different.

Staying true to its southern roots, San Antonio locals have a unique Easter tradition that threw even All My Sons Moving & Storage off guard upon hearing about it for the first time. Every year, San Antonio families prepare for the annual tradition of Easter camping.

That’s right, you read it correctly – Easter camping. This is not just the strange tradition from someone’s crazy uncle twice removed, this is a bona fide citywide Easter tradition that even your San Antonio movers take part in. In fact, city officials even relax camping and curfew rules at 10 parks so families can fully enjoy Easter camping.

San Antonio local, Roy Ramirez, shared that “I’ve done it for the last 25 years. It is really fun. We get out here. We have the whole family. Everyone gets together.” As a tribute to the tradition of Easter camping, more longtime San Antonio locals, the Hernandez family, added that their family has gone Easter camping together for the past 30 years.

Make sure that your San Antonio movers finish unpacking all of your moving boxes in time for your family to experience their first year Easter camping. Park curfews will be lifted beginning 11 pm on Thursday and will resume at 11 pm on Easter Sunday.

If you are moving out of San Antonio and selling your home, you will be thrilled to hear that the San Antonio housing market is soaring and is currently a seller’s market.

In fact, now is the perfect time to sell your home in San Antonio, as the local housing market has seen a surge since the beginning of January. San Antonio residential sales surged 6.6 percent last month from January 2015, with 1,534 homes sold, according to data from the San Antonio Board of Realtors. The median price of a home rose 5.3 percent year-over-year — from $176,700 12 months ago to $186,100 last month.

Professional San Antonio movers see the surge as well, as numerous families and young professionals have being moving to the area in order to take advantage of the current state of the San Antonio housing market. Local movers and real estate professionals say that San Antonio’s healthy economy and growing population, coupled with low interest rates, has driven housing sales and price increases as a result. Since it is predicted that sales will keep rising throughout 2016, but at a much slower rate than 2015, San Antonio movers and real estate agents recommend house hunting this year and trying to set a closing date sooner rather than later, while sales are high and prices are only gradually increasing.

If you are moving to San Antonio, let All My Sons help make your move simple and stress-free. Our movers suggest taking advantage of the San Antonio housing market while it is ideal.

Although Maverick Park is owned by the city, local San Antonio residents got together and created a proposal to redevelop the park and make certain improvements. If you are moving to San Antonio with a pet, these improvements aim to make Maverick Park a “world-class” dog park.
