Tree & Shrub Care – Root Fertilization

Root Fertilization (Spring &/or Fall)




Today we applied: 

Today’s Root Fertilization application consisted of a soil drench (or root zone probe where needed) of a bio-stimulant complex containing a complete fertilizer package, as well as a beneficial microbial package.  The beneficial microbial package helps to support and\or re-colonize the beneficial bacteria that typically live in the root systems of ornamental plants.  The fertilizer package helps support proper growth and development, which leads to a healthier landscape.

There is nothing you need to do following this application.  It is also fine to use the treated area immediately after the application is completed.


Additional items of interest:

Root Fertilization is extremely beneficial to all plants, especially to their root systems.  Proper branch structure and ample air circulation is just as important for the top part of the tree.  In fact, up to 80% of all canopy-bourne disease can be prevented or at least reduced, by increasing air movement and circulation in the canopy of a tree.  Green Giant provides detail pruning services for trees under 25’ tall to help re-structure existing trees and promote better plant health.


One other item of importance for landscape plants is minimizing weed competition for nutrients and moisture. Our Weed Control in Beds program can greatly reduce the number of these weeds and save you time and effort from hand pulling. We’ll make monthly visits to maintain control of this unwanted vegetation.


Remember Green Giant offers free inspection of all areas covered in your program. Should a problem arise don’t hesitate to call so we can address your concern as quickly as possible. We will keep working until you are completely satisfied.


All of our programs are based on the principles of  Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which is an environmentally friendly and effective approach to controlling damaging insects, diseases and invasive plants. For more information about IPM click here.
