Deep-Root Fertilization

Deep-Root Fertilization and Feeding of Trees

Overview of the service

Here at LawnSavers, we believe in giving our plants the royal treatment, and that’s where our Deep-Root Fertilization Service steps in. It’s often called “Deep Root Fertilization”, or “Deep Root Feeding”, the important part is what’s in the solution and that it is placed directly into the root zone for maximum benefit to your trees and shrubs!

Deep Root feeding maintains and preserves mature trees

Picture a day spa for your trees and shrubs, except instead of facials and massages, we’re providing high-pressure soil injections packed with nutrients. This service isn’t a light surface feeding with granular slow-release fertilizers; it’s a nutritious boost right where your trees and shrubs need it most – their root systems.

This treatment helps your plants survive less-than-ideal conditions like poor soil or poor planting. It also helps them recover from stress caused by insects, disease, or drought, all of which can rob your green companions of their health.

What does the process for Deep Root Fertilization look like?

You may even see greener areas where the bnutrioent sfrom deep root feeding trickle to the surface and help the grassLawnSavers uses a truck mounted system that injects a proprietary blend of nutrients and root invigorators through a specialized device under high pressure.
We inject in a grid system underneath the tree, concentrating on the feeder roots that are primarily near the drip line of the tree.
These holes can be anywhere from 6″-10″ below ground and will penetrate even further under the high pressure depending on the soils compaction.  (it even helps to aerate your trees root system with annual treatment.)
Picture note: In the picture above you will notice the grass benefitting in small spots surrounding the holes where the nutrients were injected.  These will dissipate within weeks and regular mowing.
