Our clients here at McNeill Landscape are often more concerned with the fertilization of their lawns than their trees, plants, and shrubs. This is mostly because if the lawn isn’t properly fertilized, its effects are clearly visible. After all, no one wants a patchy and brown lawn. However, they forget that other plants and trees in their landscape require proper nutrition as well. In fact, trees and plants often need more nutrition than grass and in most cases, the soil in the landscape just can’t provide enough.
Tree & Shrub Deep Root Fertilization Program
We always encourage our clients in urban and suburban places like Excelsior, Minnetonka, Hopkins, Eden Prairie, Chaska, and Edina to use tree fertilization programs to keep their plants healthy and trees beautiful.
We actively work to fertilize trees and shrubs on several commercial and residential properties in Chanhassen, Mound, Shakopee, Plymouth, and Saint Louis Park. We want to help our clients maintain the beauty of their landscape; and fertilization is the best way to achieve that result.
Why Fertilize?As we mentioned earlier, trees, plants, and shrubs should be fertilized, especially in urban and suburban environments. This is particularly because in these environments, the soil isn’t as rich in nutrition. Soil gets primary nutrition from the organic matter that falls and decomposes on top of it.
This organic matter usually consists of leaves, fruits, and flowers. When they decompose, they sink into the soil and replenish its nutrient value. That keeps the trees healthy. In urban environments, these leaves, fruits, and flowers are swept away almost as soon as they fall. That’s why a good fertilization program is absolutely essential.
Our Tree and Shrub Deep Root Fertilization ProgramWe usually fertilize the soil for trees and plants twice a year; once during the spring and once during fall. We use the deep root fertilization method because it’s known to be very effective and we’ve seen its results. Here are some of its benefits:
- We insert liquid fertilizer directly into the soil instead of scattering it above the soil. This takes the fertilizer to the roots of the trees and gets nutrition to them more quickly.
- The process of deep root fertilization also releases compaction of soil near the tree roots. When we insert needles into the soil and supply fertilizer, we aerate the soil and loosen it, which allows the oxygen to sink into the soil and reach the roots.
- With this method, we don’t waste fertilizer, and get better results with smaller amounts. This reduces the overall cost of fertilization and still ensures your trees remain healthy for a long time.
