What is Deep Root Fertilization?
Just like anything else in life, there is always more to something than meets the eye. If you’re anything like me, you probably knew little to nothing about deep root fertilization prior to this article. When it comes to tree and plant care, fertilization is vital to overall health and growth. There are several different types of fertilization that can be very helpful and even beneficial to your plant’s health. If you’re looking to get the most growth and health out of your plants, however, deep root fertilization is key. Contrary to typical fertilization techniques, deep root fertilization injects the fertilizer deep into the soil directly to the roots (hence the name “deep root fertilization”). This fertilization technique ensures the quickest and most efficient absorption of nutrients into the tree’s roots.
Why Use Deep Root Fertilization?
Like any other decision you make in life, it is important to consider the benefits of whatever you are looking to invest in. With Deep Root Fertilization, you want to know exactly what you will be receiving from this service. There are so many benefits of Deep Root Fertilization, but let’s just take a look at the main ones.
- Boosted Growth of New & Younger Plants
- More Targeted and Accurate Fertilization
- Quicker Nutrient Absorption
- Stronger Disease and Pest Resistance
- Increased Lifespan
- Thicker/More Full Growth
- Reduced Soil Compaction
This list is by no means exhaustive, but how can you pass up on all those benefits? If you are looking to boost the growth of your new plant installation or even increase the health of your mature plants, deep root fertilization will provide significant results. There are certainly alternative fertilization techniques you can do, but you will see the most transformation from deep root fertilization. Deep root fertilization can give your plant an incredible boost in growth and health, especially with new plant installation.
When to Deep Root Fertilize?
Deep root fertilization is best around the turning points of the seasons. These optimal times include late Fall or early Spring. Late Fall can be a good time to deep root fertilize, as it will help your plant to sustain its health through the harsh winter weather. Early Spring can also serve as an optimal time to deep root fertilize, as it will give your plants the extra boost into the growing season. Many tree and landscaping experts recommend utilizing deep root fertilization during both times of the year. This will give you the best results and will ensure that your plant is staying healthy year-round.
There might, however, be a special need for deep root fertilization at other points during the year. If your plant or soil is malnourished or is showing signs of a nutrient imbalance, it might be wise to schedule a deep root fertilization service. It is always best to contact your lawn care or landscaping company to hear from professionals.
Deep root fertilization is extremely beneficial for the overall health and growth of your plants. It is important that you get ahead of the game by providing your plants with the best care and nutrients. Don’t wait until it’s too late and you’re stuck with a dead tree that makes your property look bad. Give your plants a boost this season with deep root fertilization and you will thank yourself later!
