Creeping juniper is easy to grow, drought tolerant and low maintenance landscaping. You should be able to find it in local garden centers in the spring. Dig a bowl-shaped hole twice as wide as deep. Don’t dig a hole too deep as plants may settle too deep. As you dig, mix in a 2-inch deep layer of planting mix, compost, or other type of organic matter. Don’t plant too deeply. Make sure that the topmost roots are covered with about 1/2 inch of soil, but avoid piling soil or mulch up around the main stem. Always water plants the day before planting and water the ground after you are finished setting out a new shrub. When the dampened soil settles, spread a 2- to 3-inch deep blanket of mulch to control weeds and keep the soil moist.
