The Simple Secret to Show-Stopping Trees and Shrubs

Trees and shrubs are the backbones of your outdoor space and the ecosystem surrounding your  home. They give you shade in the summer, add  character to your outdoor spaces, and increase your property value.

At Custom Lawn, we always answer the same way: spring root fertilization is the number one thing you can do to take care of your trees & shrubs.   

What Is Spring Root Fertilization?  

Spring root fertilization is the process of injecting the soil around the roots of trees and shrubs with the right blend of insecticides, fertilizer, and nutrients that promote new root growth. This injection process keeps your trees and shrubs as healthy as possible by delivering the mixture directly to the roots . Spring is the  ideal time of year to apply root fertilizer treatments. This is because your trees and shrubs are waking up from their dormant periods and could use an extra boost of nutrients while new root growth is beginning.

  • You’ll have thicker, fuller, and greener plants.
  • It rejuvenates and improves your soil.
  • It helps your plants bounce back from decline and deficiencies like Chlorosis.
  • It encourages new stem growth on your trees and shrubs.
  • It keeps pests away that could harm your plants, such as Japanese beetles that love to eatrose bushes

Will My Plants Overgrow Leading to More Maintenance?    

This is a very common question that arises when we introduce the idea of  spring root fertilizer treatments, and understandably so. Tree roots can get out of control, even cause damage, if not tended to properly.   

When talking about stimulating new growth and applying insecticides and fertilizer to your plants, it’s incredibly important that whoever is creating the mixture is customizing the solution to your lawn’s unique ecosystem. A tailored approach is the only way we handle these service calls and anyone tending to your plants needs to know how much, or little, of each component to use for optimal results.   

If your fertilizer treatment is mixed and applied by someone who does not fully understand how each element will impact your garden, overstimulation is possible. This could lead to overgrowth problems and other issues.
