Deep Root Fertilization and How It Helps Your Lawn




There are a variety of ways you can contribute to your lawn’s health throughout the year. From making sure you are weeding and watering to keeping it well-manicured. Deep root fertilization is often one recommendation for keeping your landscaping healthy and beautiful or to help them get back into good shape if they’re not looking too great.

What is Deep Root Fertilization?

Deep root fertilization is a way of adding nutrients into the soil that will help plant growth. The process is done by injecting a high-quality fertilizer made of macronutrients, micronutrients, and trace minerals further down in the soil to target the roots. Fertilizer is a beneficial tool to use to help our lawns and the trees and shrubs on it stay beautiful and green.

This method of fertilization encourages the plant to grow by establishing a healthy soil environment for the roots. A feeding needle is used to inject the fertilizer under high pressure about 6 to 8 inches deep into the ground. This helps to ensure that the fertilizer mix is going right where it will be the most useful.

Benefits of Deep Root Fertilization

Deep root fertilization is one of the best ways to maintain healthy landscaping. Oftentimes the foliage we choose for our homes do not naturally occur in that environment, lawns included. Having deep root treatments help to mimic the natural nutrient cycles of the flora and ensures that they get an immediate boost in reenergizing nutrients.

Keeping your lawn and other landscaping features healthy also helps them fight off potential aggressors like bad weather or insect/pest infestations. Beyond just looking great, it will also be healthy enough to protect itself in cases of need.

Deep Root Fertilization for Trees and Shrubs

Oftentimes, lawns that are regularly maintained can go without deep root fertilization, especially since surface level fertilizer is capable of doing the work needed to provide the nutrients that grass needs. Trees and shrubs, however, can receive many added benefits from deep root fertilization. This is because they have a much deeper and more extensive root system.

Deep root fertilization injections for these larger plants reduces the risk of fertilizer runoff and ensures that nutrients are going directly to the roots. It is also helpful in cases of soil compaction where it becomes difficult for trees and shrubs to retain water. These treatments help loosen up the soil and gives roots the ability to continue to grow and feed.
