Your trees and shrubs provide your property with beauty and comfort. You must be doing everything possible to protect your beautiful landscape. But how do you know if they have healthy root systems? Though most homeowners do not think about it, the grass is not the only part of your lawn that needs to be fertilized! Deep root fertilization is explicitly created for trees and shrubs to receive the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. .
Deep root feeding uses a root zone injector pipe to apply a unique blend of essential nutrients. This blend is injected under the soil’s surface, deep down where the tree or shrub roots are located and absorbed into the root zone. Deep root fertilization reduces the possibility of all the nutrients becoming absorbed by your yard’s grassroots system, being washed out by the water, or blown away by the wind.
Deep Root Feeding does not work on small shrubs or grass since these plants have short roots that cling to the soil’s surface. Large trees and shrubs have deep roots that are looking for resources deep down under the surface. When they cannot find the nutrients they need to survive, you will notice a decline in their health. Since the fertilizer needs to be put deeper into the ground, this process requires special equipment and is usually done by a lawn care professional or arborist.
Deep Root Feeding will benefit your trees and shrubs in many ways, including:
