Deep Root Fertilization
The clay soil types in Georgia tend to bind up important nutrients in the soil, making it difficult for trees and shrubs to get the nutrients they need to maintain their health and stability. At Duncan's Green Team, we understand this. Here is what we do: we take the best tree & shrub fertilizer on the market, dissolve it in water, then we go around the trees and shrubs, inserting fertilizer deep into the roots system. This places important nutrients back into the soil, this allows for better root function, promotes root growth which increases the health and provides effective soil aeration. The roots have easy access to water and nutrients.
It is always safer to try to prevent diseases then treet. By keeping your trees fertilized and healthy, you will prevent a host of diseases and related problems from a lack of nutrients.
Why is Deep Root Tree and Shrub Fertilization Important?
In most situations ornamental trees and shrubs are growing in poor soil and need supplemental fertilization for them thrive. Deep Root Fertilization increases growth of young trees and shrubs, improves color and density of the canopy, as well as help build resistance to overcome disease and naturally fight off insects. Deep root also eases soil compaction around the trees root system, allowing more air exchange for the roots, while placing the fertilizer where the tree can gain immediate access to the nutrients.
We highly recommend Deep Root Fertilization be performed on an annual basis. We usually perform this service in early spring. The process is done with specialized equipment allowing for a the water suspended, slow release, fertilizer to be hydro-injected deep below the soils surface. This service is performed using a specialized probe under high pressure to help de-compact the soils and deliver the product to the trees feeder roots.
