When plants go dormant in the fall, they stop sending nutrients up to leaves and focus on storing food in the roots. This makes fall an opportune time to fertilize and also helps the plant get a head start in the spring. One thing you may want to consider is deep root fertilization.
The problem with traditional fertilization methods is that the tree is prevented from using the fertilizer to its full potential. Usually, fertilizer is laid on the surface. However, this can take a long time to reach the roots of the tree if it reaches it at all. Your plant is also in constant competition with grass and nearby vegetation for water, sunlight, and nutrients. Due to this competition, your tree’s health can be compromised. That’s why at Lawn Jox our preferred method of fertilization is deep root fertilization.
What Is Deep Root Fertilization?
Deep root fertilization is a special targeted process that involves using high-pressure to inject a time-released balance of fertilizer and nutrients directly into the roots. As a result, this method encourages tree and shrub health throughout the year. Therefore, the benefits are long-lasting and significant.
